Argyle Data's Arshak Navruzyan to Present on Using Machine Learning to Detect Telco Fraud at Strata + Hadoop World Conference, Singapore, December 1 - 3

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 30, 2015) - Arshak Navruzyan, VP Product Management at Argyle Data, will speak at the upcoming Strata + Hadoop World conference on new machine learning techniques for anomaly detection that are already proving their extreme effectiveness in identifying and preventing telecom fraud. Argyle Data is the leader in native Hadoop applications for threat analytics in mobile communications.

"The telecom industry faces a massive challenge: $38 billion is lost each year to sophisticated attacks including call-back, international revenue sharing scams, subscription fraud and more," said Navruzyan. "Historically, carriers have tried to isolate fraudulent behavior through complex rules, which are not effective in defending against new and changing threats. Supervised machine learning against labeled datasets struggles with the available signal. The newest, unsupervised machine learning techniques for anomaly detection have proven to be a breakthrough in uncovering mobile communications fraud."

Navruzyan's session, "Using Machine Learning to Identify Fraud on Telecom Networks," takes place on Wednesday, December 2. He will also cover the production architecture of a machine learning system that can cope with the vast volumes of data flowing over carrier networks to provide near real-time analysis, minimizing losses due to fraud and arbitrage attacks.

Arshak Navruzyan is a well-known machine learning expert who is regularly sought after to speak on the subject. He has served in product management and engineering leadership roles at Argyle Data, Alpine Data Labs, Endeca, and Oracle. His vision is to make machine learning accessible to any organization or individual that wants to transform the world through data.

Strata + Hadoop World is a deep-immersion experience where data scientists, analysts, and business executives meet to share emerging best practices and build the future of big data. It takes place in Singapore on December 1-3, 2015.
