Hackathon offers participants the possibility to work in small teams and employ innovative thinking to boost collective creativity and use it to solve business problems. The key objective is to create possible solutions in the form of prototypes that can be used as a minimal viable product to address the defined problem.
In this session, Claude Colasante from AUSTRAC will present examples of successful hackathons that enabled participants to apply a systematic creativity and innovation to build capabilities to predict, discover and fight fraud and crime. Claude will also share how the Financial Intelligence Unit applies advanced analytics and leverage big data opportunities to build intelligence-led approaches as a platform for the effective detection and monitoring of criminal networks.
