What challenge lies ahead? 

Problem statement

How can we speed-up lending decisions for new bank`s customers with Artificial Intelligence?

Theme: Automatization of the loan origination process

The financial industry is highly regulated and loan issuers are required by law to make fair decisions and explain their credit models to provide reasons whenever they decide to decline loan application. At NLB Group, we are issuing thousands of loans every month and our underwriting model has to provide declination reasons when the model rejects one’s loan application. The NLB Group wants to improve its loan origination process for new clients by automating eligibility validation based on customer detail provided while filling online application form. 

We are looking for

Complementary solutions and technologies that could shape new types of services based on the interpretation and processing of large amounts of collected data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence and to be integrated in the complex solution of automating eligibility validation based on customer detail provided.

Needed project delivery

Source code in Phyton or R programming language and presentation of the solution with additional improvement of your predictive model. 

You will receive more information after the registration here.
