Developing interpretable data mining decision models for credit risk

Developing interpretable data mining decision models for credit risk
The recent introduction of the Basel II Capital accord has increased the need to develop data mining based decision models for credit risk. Since these models will play a pivotal role in the key business areas of a financial institution (e.g. credit granting, regulatory capital calculation, securitization, …), they need to be powerful but also interpretable. In this presentation, we will elaborate on how complex data mining techniques (e.g. neural networks and support vector machines) can be efficiently used to develop high performing and white-box decision models for financial risk management. We will hereby extensively discuss the importance of feature selection, rule extraction, two-staged models and knowledge representation.

Abstract

The recent introduction of the Basel II Capital accord has increased the need to develop data mining based decision models for credit risk. Since these models will play a pivotal role in the key business areas of a financial institution (e.g. credit granting, regulatory capital calculation, securitization, …), they need to be powerful but also interpretable. In this presentation, we will elaborate on how complex data mining techniques (e.g. neural networks and support vector machines) can be efficiently used to develop high performing and white-box decision models for financial risk management. We will hereby extensively discuss the importance of feature selection, rule extraction, two-staged models and knowledge representation.
