Compliance Meets Artificial Intelligence

The rate of computing power is growing so quickly that by 2020, we will finally have a computer with the same raw processing power of a human brain. By 2050, we will have a computer with the same raw processing power of all human brains combined. We are seeing the computing power of machines hit a hockey stick moment and, as that power increases, so does the advent of truly artificial intelligence—machines that think on their own and learn on their own. 

AI has long been the realm of science fiction, but in compliance, it takes on a new meaning, as AI-driven computer systems can provide organizations with the ability to process huge amounts of data either in search for particular documents or to screen communications for the usage of certain words or phrases, or scanning financial transactions for signs of money laundering or other impropriety. With this kind of increase in capabilities, compliance officers are understandably interested in what AI can do for them. But first, we need to understand better what exactly AI is and does in a compliance context and where we are between the promise of the technology and what it actually delivers.
