In today’s world, fraud management has become arather painful task for finance and e-commerce industry due to a plethora of payment channelsand huge volumes of data. At the same time, criminals have become adept at finding loopholes, resulting in huge financial loss. As a result, it’s getting tough for businesses to identify fraudulent transactions in a timely manner.

Machines are much better than humans at processing large datasets since they are able to detect and recognize thousands of data patterns on a user’s purchasing journey instead of the few captured by following rules. This is the reason why artificial intelligence and machine learning are proving to be instrumental in timely detection and prevention of fraud.
