MAS, Monetary Authority of Singapore, central bank, Veritas, FEAT, AIDAThe Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) announced the successful conclusion of the first phase of the Veritas initiative which saw the development of the fairness assessment methodology in credit risk scoring and customer marketing. These are the first two use cases to help financial institutions validate the fairness of their Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics (AIDA) solutions according to the Fairness, Ethics, Accountability and Transparency (FEAT) principles. The Veritas Consortium, comprising MAS and industry partners, also published whitepapers on the fairness assessment methodology and the open source code of these two use cases.

The two whitepapers detailed a five-part methodology to assess the application of the FEAT fairness principles in the use cases. The methodology addresses the implementation challenges in the responsible use of AIDA and provides an actionable approach for financial institutions to validate their AIDA solutions. The open source code of the use cases has been made publicly available to help the wider AIDA community in adopting the fairness assessment methodology and spur industry development. These will benefit customers by improving the fairness of financial services delivered by AIDA systems.

Phase Two will look into developing the Ethics, Accountability and Transparency assessment methodology for the two use cases in Phase One. Phase Two will also include use cases for the insurance industry.

For the insurance use cases, the Veritas consortium will focus on the fairness assessment methodology for predictive underwriting, and develop the ethics and accountability assessment methodology for fraud detection:

  • Fairness is a key consideration in the course of underwriting for insurance companies. The Veritas consortium will focus on enhancing the fairness assessment methodology applicable to the predictive underwriting for life and health insurance products.
  • Fraud detection and identification of suspicious customer claims are key activities in claims processing by insurance companies. Traditional fraud detection is resource intensive and insurance companies can employ AIDA to enhance their fraud detection capabilities and efficiency.

Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer, MAS said, “Veritas Phase One enabled us to look into the fairness of artificial intelligence and data analytics systems in a more granular manner. It will improve the trustworthiness of AIDA significantly. We will continue our Veritas journey and aim to establish Singapore as a responsible artificial intelligence hub for the financial services in the near future.”
