Lab: Predict Anomalies

Lab: Predict Anomalies

Use Case: Anti Money Laundering

About this Mission

Anomaly detection models can be used in many domains to detect such things as network intruders, adverse health events, and network failures. On this mission, you will build an unsupervised anomaly detection model to detect money laundering using the DataRobot platform.  

Mission format and duration: self-paced, hands-on, 45 minutes

Upon completion of this mission, you will be able to: 

  • Using a dataset of banking transactions, identify anomalies that indicate money laundering 
  • Build an unsupervised anomaly detection model in DataRobot
  • Evaluate an anomaly detection model using Synthetic Area Under the ROC Curve (AUC) metrics generated by DataRobot
  • Examine an anomaly detection model using Feature Impact, Feature Effects, ROC Curve, and the Anomaly Detection insight
  • Run a test set to evaluate an anomaly detection model and compare the top blueprint with the top Synthetic AUC blueprint

Who should complete this mission?

  • Business Analysts
  • Citizen Data Scientists
  • Data Scientists
