How Data Science is used at Delta Capita



Students, Academics

Series: Data Bites

Speakers from Delta Capita, and City students who interned with them last summer, will be talking about two projects; DC COMPRESSION and DC MINT.



DC COMPRESSION helps to produce models which are significantly smaller in both memory and computations requirement and run faster with minimal impact on accuracy

  • Highly accurate machine learning models rely on ‘millions’ to ‘billions’ of internal model parameters and must be trained over very long periods of time
  • These qualities enable a much wider deployment of machine learning models including:
    • Real-time applications, like high-frequency trading algorithms credit decisions and fraud detection where speed is important
    • Deployment on smaller devices with limited computational resources

Your algorithm can be right 100% of the time, but, if the result is received past the action point, then it was useless.

DC MINT helps to unlock machine learning and AI

  • Machine learning models show better accuracy than traditional models, but users are unable to explain how the system made the decision e.g. why a specific loan or mortgage application is rejected/accepted
  • Regulations like SR11-7 and GDPR Article 22 require an explanation as to how the models made the decision
  • Understanding how machine learning models work can help improve models and decision-making as well as keeping the regulators happy
