Machine Learning & Voice Recognition in Fraud Prevention

Machine learning focuses on developing algorithms and models that enable computer systems to learn and improve from data without being explicitly programmed. Instead of relying on explicit instructions, machine learning algorithms are designed to analyze and interpret data, identify patterns, and make predictions or take actions based on those patterns.

Machine learning algorithms play a crucial role in analyzing data patterns and trends to identify indicators of fraudulent activity and make predictions or take actions based on these insights. They continuously learn from previous interactions and data, allowing them to improve their functionality over time and adapt to new fraud patterns, thus enhancing anti-fraud intelligence.

Artificial intelligence can log various behavioral and verbal indicators to detect fraud. By leveraging machine learning, these indicators can be spotted in real-time, flagging calls with malicious intent as early as the first interaction. Flagged claim calls can then be monitored and investigated more thoroughly.

AI voice recognition algorithms are rapidly evolving to address challenges like fraudsters using "deep fake" technology, enabling businesses to combat such fraudulent operations effectively.

Subfields of voice recognition, such as Natural Language Processing (NLP), contribute significantly to fraud prevention. NLP facilitates the understanding of human language through computer systems. Integrating NLP with AI and machine learning can create an effective fraud detection system, allowing algorithms to accurately and efficiently process audio and video data while comprehending human language to a greater degree.

This advancement benefits call centers, particularly in online meetings, and aids in conceptualizing regulatory compliance and identifying sales opportunities from the same dataset.

How Maruti Techlabs Implemented Audio-Content Classification Using Python-based Predictive Modeling

case study core nova

Core Nova, a SaaS solutions provider, wanted to upgrade its voice recognition software to instantly identify (within 1 second) the source on the other side of the sales call (i.e., human or non-human).

Core Nova wanted to overcome this challenge by deploying a predictive model to identify who it was conversing with instantly. Let’s observe how Maruti Techlabs approached this challenge.

Core Nova’s Challenge

challenges
  • Core Nova’s existing model had an accuracy rate of only 60% within a timeframe of 3 seconds. This level of accuracy was deemed insufficient for the client's requirements.
  • The client desired a model with high accuracy (over 90%) that could determine the probability of whether the audio input was from a human or a machine within one second.
  • Another critical challenge was that overlapping audio patterns made distinguishing between human and non-human audio inputs difficult.
  • When tested in a live environment, the audio inputs demonstrated similar characteristics within the first 500 milliseconds.

The Solution We Offered to Core Nova

solution

Core Nova sought to improve their audio input detection model built on Asterisk. They aimed for a high accuracy of over 90% within a one-second timeframe. Here’s how Maruti Techlabs helped:

  • Firstly, our AI experts identified patterns that can classify the audio input as Human-Answered (HA) or Non-Human-Answered (Non-HA).
  • Our experts filtered and analyzed the client’s audio training files and labeled these data sets to make them searchable. 
  • Then, our data scientists at Maruti Techlabs created a Python-based predictive model to characterize whether the audio input is HA or Non-HA within the first 500 ms. 
  • We tested and corrected this model through further testing in a live environment before the final deployment. 

Automatic speech recognition technology helps transcribe spoken language into written text, enabling the analysis and understanding of audio inputs. By converting the audio signals into text, ASR facilitates the subsequent classification of whether the input was human-answered or non-human-answered. Check out how Maruti Techlabs created a Python-based predictive model to categorize audio input as human and non-human in detail.
