Attend an education session on April 25, 2017, at 2:30 pm:

Preventing Instant Payments Fraud

Bank-to-bank financial transactions can quickly become vulnerable to fraud attacks from the bank card and mobile payments. Speaker, Constantin von Altrock, will discuss the value of real-time profiling of transactions, which assesses fraud risk in milliseconds to decline fraudulent transactions before they are credited. This fraud prevention is achievable through next generation cognitive computing, which combines artificial intelligence and human expertise to detect real fraud patterns. This solution has been the first fraud prevention system used with the UK faster payment system, and recently selected by the largest European ACH provider. Constantin von Altrock is the co-founder of Iris Analytics and director of IBM Safer Payments.

Blockchain Explained: Use Cases & Successes
Blockchain is driving the reinvention of many of the world's most fundamental business interactions. The simple construct of a distributed ledger has altered how we exchange value, as well as understand ownership of an asset in the digital age. Join speakers Nitin Gaur and Tim Richer as they advance the idea of blockchain as a powerful open source approach, and help the industry progress toward a mature technology to support serious business. Session attendees will have the opportunity for Q&A and see live demonstrations of blockchain technology in action both in the session and at the IBM booth located in the exhibit hall. Nitin Gaur is director of IBM Blockchain Labs, and Tim Richer is Blockchain Marketing Leader, IBM.
