There are a plethora of success stories demonstrating how major financial players capitalise on their data. The coronavirus pandemic and the global measures that have followed have created a perfect economic storm. The financial sector stands at the front line of a growing credit crisis, with banks trying to manage disruption and maintain strict compliance amid social distancing guidelines which are at odds with their processes. Then there are the extraordinarily low interest rates and increasingly cash-insecure consumers to contend with. To navigate the immediate obstacles, financial institutions must assess short-to-medium-term financial risks and adapt to new ways of operating in a post-pandemic world.
Did you ever wonder how credit card fraud detection is caught in real-time? Do you want to know how to catch an intruder program if it is trying to access your system? This is all possible by the application of the anomaly detection machine learning model. Anomaly detection is one of the most popular machine learning techniques. In this article, we will learn concepts related to anomaly detection and how to implement it as a machine learning model.
Anomalies, often referred to as outliers, are data points, data sequences or patterns in data which do not conform to the overarching behaviour of the data series. As such, anomaly detection is the task of detecting data points or sequences which don't conform to patterns present in the broader data. The effective detection and removal of anomalous data can provide highly useful insights across a number of business functions, such as detecting broken links embedded within a website, spikes in internet traffic, or dramatic changes in stock prices. Flagging these phenomena as outliers, or enacting a pre-planned response can save businesses both time and money. Anomalous data can typically be separated into three distinct categories, Additive Outliers, Temporal Changes, or Level Shifts. Additive Outliers are characterised by sudden large increases or decreases in value, which can be driven by exogenous or endogenous factors.

It is important that credit card companies are able to recognize fraudulent credit card transactions so that customers are not charged for items that they did not purchase. The datasets contain transactions made by credit cards in September 2013 by European cardholders. This dataset presents transactions that occurred in two days, where we have 492 frauds out of 284,807 transactions. The dataset is highly unbalanced, the positive class (frauds) account for 0.172% of all transactions. It contains only numerical input variables which are the result of a PCA transformation.

Anomaly detection can be treated as a statistical task as an outlier analysis. But if we develop a machine learning model, it can be automated and as usual, can save a lot of time. There are so many use cases of anomaly detection. Credit card fraud detection, detection of faulty machines, or hardware systems detection based on their anomalous features, disease detection based on medical records are some good examples. There are many more use cases.
