Intern

CTBC Bank Project Team (Artificial Intelligence in Credit Investigation)

Our team applied deep learning method to the process of credit investigation. Traditionally, employees in bank have to check scanned passbook to find information to evaluate one's credit level. We developed an automatic identification model tool to extract key words from given images. This can greatly save operating cost in bank when it comes to personal loan.
