Title: Hybrid Artificial Intelligence Models and its Applications from Bankruptcy Prediction, fraud detection to Breast Cancer Detection
In this talk we will introduce some hybrid models which are hybrid of Artificial Intelligence techniques as well as some “modern multivariate techniques”.We will demonstrate three applications of these hybrid models in bankruptcy prediction, fraud detection and breast cancer detection as mentioned below. Statistical business failure prediction models attempt to predict the failure or success of a business. Discriminant and logit analyses have traditionally been the most popular approaches, but there are also a range of promising AI techniques that can alternatively be applied. Besides discussing the application of a new hybrid models we will also discuss the application of a relatively new modern multivariate technique of stochastic gradient boosting in business failure prediction and financial fraud detection. Breast cancer is the leading cause of death amongst women in the age group 40-55 years. Digital mammography is one of the most suitable methods for early detection of cancer. However, it is very difficult to distinguish benign and malignant micro calcification. We will demonstrate the application of hybrid models in the classification of benign and malignant micro calcification in digital mammograms.
