Use case: Beating traditional credit score methods with Machine Learning
Ameriprise wanted to see the impact of using Machine Learning vs traditional credit score methods to predict if a customer would go into credit default
Joon’s platform was used to ingest the data, automatically transform it, create features and build ML models
The results were a ML model that was able to predict credit default better to the point it caught 83% of bad debt not caught by credit score while refusing loans to the same number of customers
The model could be reversed and 77% more people could be offered loans if the bank wanted to keep their current default rate
This AI model was ready for production in 4 weeks
Use Case Results
The results were much better than anyone anticipated, catching 83% of bad debt not caught by credit score. Which drastically reduces exposure to credit risk. Should they want to keep the same rate of default, they could lend to 77% more people.
