The need for a cutting-edge, real-time fraud solution has never been so critical as it is now. The world has seen an unprecedented switch from CP (cardholder present), CNP (cardholder not present) to online transactions, which has massively changed the patterns of fraudulent activity for OLTP (online transaction processing). Organizations that process online payments need the agility to rapidly counteract this industry swing. Lusis Payments is in the perfect position to help you achieve this.
The Changing Retail Banking Landscape Across the retail banking sector, every acquiring and issuing payments environment must have the dexterity to manage all of these activities while meeting strict compliance guidelines, managing data and IT cybersecurity, and more.
Ultra-intelligent and safe financial fraud and payments systems are a prerequisite for any modern economy. They enable everyday transactions, thus providing the foundation for commerce and trade.
Over time, all payments ecosystems globally have developed inefficiencies and lost some of their ability to innovate and adapt to the changing needs of end-users. The platforms tend to be old, outdated systems that have inefficiently evolved together over time. And fraudsters love this — it's “easy pickings” for them.
The Solution: Tango AIF™ by Lusis
By deploying Lusis AI Fraud powered by Tango (Tango AIF™) you will get the leading-edge solution for fraud monitoring, detection and action — technology that provides the latest methods for processing secure transactions, irrespective of source, nature or market segment.
Tighter payments regulations; evolving platforms, and new initiatives, such as PSD2, GDPR and 3DS2.0, etc., require advanced fraud technology. That is why implementing a solution like Tango AIF to enrich detection to combat fraud is critical. As service providers, retail banking organizations need to maintain control over these issues while upholding compliance and protecting revenues.

CREATION OF THE RESEARCH CHAIR "ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE APPLIED TO THE DETECTION OF PAYMENT FRAUD AND TRADING"
Romain Soubeyran, Managing Director of CentraleSupélec and Philippe Préval, Managing Director of Lusis, launch the Chair "Artificial intelligence applied to the detection of payment fraud and trading". Through this partnership, Lusis and CentraleSupélec are strengthening their collaboration in the field of artificial intelligence applied to the banking sector.
Lusis is the publisher of TANGO, a high-performance payments transaction platform for the finance industry. With the TANGO platform, Lusis provides a complete retail payment system that includes fraud detection, as well as extremely rich and complex “front to back” trading platforms.
In order to give a formal framework to this permanent R&D approach, in June 2017 Lusis created an Artificial Intelligence department responsible for working on Machine Learning / Deep Learning approaches mainly applicable to fraud detection on payments and trading strategies in the financial markets.
For its part, CentraleSupélec gives very high priority to artificial intelligence by dedicating focus to a of 3rd year to AI. The laboratories of CentraleSupélec are also present in this field by participating in numerous projects. This chair is the first signed by CentraleSupélec with a French high tech SME.
Strong involvement of students and researchers
Thanks to the long-standing collaboration between Lusis and CentraleSupélec, the student-engineers of the School have the opportunity to carry out, within the framework of "industrial study contracts" (« contrats d’étude industrielle » CEI), projects that focus on solving complex problems using statistical or machine learning approaches.
Involving students allows Lusis to generate and capture new ideas created in the laboratory that are usable in industrial approaches, and to access a pool of skills (researchers, students and collaboration network) conducive to the development of the various projects carried out.
Scientific objectives and research themes
The Chair supported by Lusis and CentraleSupélec provides a structured working framework allowing the two partners to carry out research work of specific interest by relying on a dedicated research team. It is housed in the Computer Science Research Laboratory (LRI), a joint research unit at Paris-Saclay University, CNRS and CentraleSupélec.
The themes studied include the detection of fraud on payments and trading strategies.
As far as fraud detection is concerned, the essential points to take into account are both the appearance of new fraud strategies and the essentially online nature of the process, as well as the ability to provide an explanation for the refusal or the acceptance of a transaction.
With regard to trading strategies, the work undertaken highlights the share of random time series in financial market data. This is the major difficulty of research in this area.
"Artificial intelligence is a game changer in the world of IT and business in general. It will completely redraw the landscape of whole sections of the industry. We want Lusis to be part of this revolution, particularly in our preferred areas of trading, payments systems, on-line banking, and customer-centric programs. For us, being an AI player means being a stakeholder in AI research. This is why, we are both happy and proud to be able to give a new dimension to our long-standing partnership with CentraleSupélec. Our teams like those set up by CentraleSupélec are enthusiastic about exploring these new universes,” declares Philippe Préval, CEO of LUSIS.
“Artificial intelligence is a young science whose recent successes and advances open up enormous potential for innovation in all fields and sectors of activity, which is at the heart of CentraleSupélec's strategy. We train, through dedicated courses, the engineers and researchers who will build tomorrow's intelligent systems at the service of society. With a wide disciplinary variety, our research activities cover a wide spectrum of AI," says Romain Soubeyran, Managing Director of CentraleSupélec who adds"The artificial intelligence chair applied to the detection of payment fraud and trading with LUSIS allows us to reinforce this strategy with a very ambitious scientific program.”
