Latest Machine Learning Program

FinRegLab announced that it is conducting new empirical research to evaluate the inclusion impact of machine learning credit models, including those built with bank account data as well as traditional credit report information. The organization has also been invited by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to co-chair a new Technology Working Group within the OCC’s Project REACh initiative.
This fourth edition of our FAQs focuses on emerging techniques to explain complex models and builds on prior FAQs that covered the use of AI in financial services and the importance of model transparency and explainability in the context of machine learning credit underwriting models.
FinRegLab worked with a team of researchers from the Stanford Graduate School of Business to evaluate the explainability and fairness of machine learning for credit underwriting. We focused on measuring the ability of currently available model diagnostic tools to provide information about the performance and capabilities of machine learning underwriting models. This research helps stakeholders assess how machine learning models can be developed and used in compliance with regulatory expectations regarding model risk management, anti-discrimination, and adverse action reporting.
This third edition of our FAQs considers the technological, market, and policy implications of using federated machine learning to improve risk identification across anti-financial crime disciplines, including in customer onboarding where it may facilitate more accurate and inclusive customer due diligence.
This first edition of our FAQs addresses a range of introductory questions about AI and machine learning.
