Session and Speaker Information

Session 1

Speaker: Grant Isles

CFNIS CANADIAN FORCES NATIONAL INVESTIGATIVE SERVICES

Investigating fraud with a military lens brings different insights into the constraints in an investigation.  The Senior investigator in BC will share his insights into the types of frauds, methods of investigation and highlight how a military investigation may differ from a civilian fraud event.

Session 2

Speaker: tbd

Session 3

PETER SCOTT

AI and FRAUD

Surviving and leveraging this tidal wave of change requires adaptive strategies. Artificial Intelligence can improve efficiency and performance in many areas of, for instance, fraud and abuse detection through machine learning. The FBI’s Sentinel system, for example, has demonstrated the ability to correlate information from apparently unrelated and sources of unstructured information to find new relationships. Business analytics tools such as Splunk now incorporate machine learning toolkits to find patterns and causes in massive data streams. AI will become an expected component of Internal Audit operation.

As AI subsumes much of what we have come to think of as exclusively human intuition, the future of IA will resemble the current state of the art of chess: the best players on the planet are no longer humans, but neither are they computers. Instead, a human-computer pairing is the best approach. There may be no I in Team, but there is an AI in Team.

This session explores the state of the art of AI with respect to business fraud, looking at short- and long-term possibilities.

Peter Scott: half business coach, half information technology specialist, half teacher, three-quarters daddy. After getting a master's degree in Computer Science from Cambridge University, he has worked for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory as an employee and contractor for over thirty years, helping advance our exploration of the Solar System. He started in the Navigation section, which maneuvers spacecraft to hit tiny targets a billion miles away, then moved to Enterprise IT, providing solutions in distributed computing and institutional cybersecurity.

At the same time, he developed a parallel career in "soft" fields of human development, getting certifications in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and coaching. These serve his current mission of helping people deal with the disruption from exponential technology growth, to which end he founded the Next Wave Institute, partnering with educational institutions to prepare the current and next generations for that disruption.

His book, “Crisis of Control: How Artificial SuperIntelligences May Destroy or Save the Human Race” explores the promise and perils of artificial intelligence. [2] It offers a fascinating look at how we will either be greatly helped or gravely harmed by advancing technology depending on how we act now. He has appeared on Bloomberg News, CBC Radio One, and KGEM TV, given two TEDx talks, keynoted to groups in Canada, the USA, and the UK, and is scheduled to testify before a parliamentary working group in Britain’s House of Lords this November.

Session 4

Speaker:  DANIEL SPEIRS

This session will explore the innate psychological processes that produce decisions, such as bounded ethicality, ethical fading and motivated blindness (i.e. “blind spots”) and offers insights on how to alert ethics and compliance training participants to their blind spots that block them from seeing the gap between their own actual behaviour and desired behaviour and tools to help evaluate ethical decisions with more reflection and less bias. 

Daniel Speirs is the Chief Compliance and Ethics Offices for BCI

Session 5    

Speaker:  Harvey Stevens on, Victoria Police Department

Interviewing and obtaining confessions takes practiced skills when conducting a fraud investigation.  Harvey’s insights gained through his experience as an undercover police officer will provide insights into current interviewing techniques being taught to today’s police force, and share lessons learned after many years of interviewing.
