Credit Scoring & Decisioning and Model Risk Management

Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit | Bangkok, Thailand
13 September, 2019

A Day in the Life of a Machine Learning Model

The application of AI/ML models in financial services is starting to deliver real business benefit. Efficient model development and deployment, and robust model governance are important for both AI/ML models and traditional models. The use of AI/ML models is an opportunity, a threat, but also a unique challenge.

This event is a unique opportunity for our customers to share experiences and insights with industry practitioners, regulators and SAS R&D.

  • Learn about best practice in credit modelling and decisioning, and model governance.
  • Share insights and network with peers. 
  • Hear customer case studies that you can apply to your day-to-day activities.
  • Provide feedback and ideas on SAS product strategy.
  • Meet one-on-one with SAS product managers and industry leaders.

Your response by August 30, 2019 will be greatly appreciated.

Registration is free and includes conference materials. It does not include air travel, hotel expenses or transportation.
