Industry-first solution to anticipate bias and generate fair alternative models at machine speed within existing AI algorithms
PHILADELPHIA and NEW YORK, June 16, 2023 – Capco, the global technology and management company, and SolasAI, the leader in innovative algorithmic fairness AI software, today announced a partnership focused on reducing bias and discrimination while enhancing risk mitigation related to AI use within the financial services industry.
As organizations worldwide adapt to faster cycles of innovation for competitive advantage and integrate more AI into their decisioning models and digital platforms, the risk of falling short of regulatory standards rises exponentially. Together, Capco and SolasAI provide a solution that leverages their AI acumen and their deep expertise in financial services and digital security..
This new industry-first joint solution anticipates bias and generates fair alternative models at machine speed by integrating algorithmic fairness directly into the customer’s model-building, operations, and governance processes.
Using Capco’s expertise in financial services and lending, combined with SolasAI’s deep algorithmic fairness experience and optimized bias and discrimination reduction algorithms, the partners have accelerated the time to reach compliance for unbiased, production-grade AI models regardless of scale. This enables financial services organizations to match the speed of innovation in Generative AI while ensuring fairness compliance matches regulatory expectations.
Previous compliance efforts take anywhere from 4-8 weeks to navigate from start to finish. Now, businesses can meet and clear regulatory standards within a few days, cutting down weeks of time spent modifying models for compliance into one swift report.
Lance Levy, CEO of Capco, said: “Capco is delighted to bring some of the most advanced AI technology to our financial services clients while lowering their deployment risk. We see a bright future for AI that provides fair and transparent outcomes.”
Joshua Siegel, Partner at Capco US said: “SolasAI’s models are equitable, unbiased, and adhere to current regulations while adapting to future policy. SolasAI’s proven ability to reduce disparity with minimal impact on accuracy – even in the most complex real-world use cases – was very important to us.”
The partnership encourages the progressive evolution of each companies’ fair lending models. Capco takes a holistic look at a client’s people, processes, and technology to provide organizational enhancements, optimized processes, cutting-edge technology, exceptional customer experience, and an inclusive culture. This approach catalyzes positive change right across an organization’s ecosystem to foster long-term growth and prosperity.
SolasAI CEO Larry Bradley said: “As artificial intelligence becomes more ingrained in daily business practices, we want to ensure that as companies increase their use of AI-based models they can seamlessly mitigate risk and discrimination for their businesses and clients. AI models can be implemented safely and accurately while adhering to regulations and fostering the trust so critical for widespread adoption. This partnership provides a pauseless way forward that accelerates innovation while adhering to regulatory standards.”
