UAlberta researchers receive $1M from ATB

April 11, 2018

Scientists and researchers at the University of Alberta will benefit from a new four-year, $940K partnership with ATB Financial, reports the Edmonton Journal. The partnership will reportedly drive three initial projects that are already underway between ATB’s data scientists and university scientists who are looking at real-time fraud detection, predictive analytics, and a recommendation system similar to Amazon focused around financial literacy and health. “All of the projects are designed to enhance human capabilities, allowing ATB to function more effectively, deepening their efforts in maintaining customer relationships,” said a release. The Journal reports that the money will also be used for student internships. Edmonton Journal
