Presented by: Michiel Krol, Rabobank
Rabobank has built a KNIME component to help auditors apply isolation forest (anomaly detection) machine learning themselves. In this use case, they have applied it to the area of anti-money laundering, where they are using it to uncover unknown patterns rather than the usual known patterns in an effort to reduce money laundering activities.
Presented by: Eddy van der Geest, Tata Steel Europe
KNIME is a very useful tool to support data analysis in audit departments. A key factor for success is the combination of a subject matter expert and data analyst. Data driven audits are sometimes a struggle, but can also be very rewarding and fun! Eddy has been Senior Auditor at Tata Steel Europe since 2003, and prior to this worked for twelve years at KPMG as a Chartered Accountant and IT-Auditor.
