MasterCard rolls out artificial intelligence across global network

Mastercard introduced Decision Intelligence, a comprehensive decision and fraud detection service. The solution uses artificial intelligence technology to help financial institutions increase the accuracy of real-time approvals of genuine transactions and reduce false declines. This is the first use of AI being implemented on a global scale directly on the Mastercard network. Current decision-scoring products are focused primarily on risk assessment, working within predefined rules. Decision Intelligence is a radical new approach that goes much further. It takes a broader view in assessing, scoring and learning from each transaction. That score then enables the card issuer to apply the intelligence to the next transaction. This technology is a core feature on the enhanced World Elite platform and it also supports all Mastercard brands and products across all markets.

Jefferies sees attractive entry points for Payments stocks
Payments stocks Visa (V), MasterCard (MA), PayPal (PYPL), Global Payments (GPN), Vantiv (VNTV) have been big underperformers since Election Day as investors rotate into core Financials, Jefferies analyst Jason Kupferberg tells investors in a research note. The corrections of up to 10% are not warranted fundamentally, the analyst contends. Kupferberg sees attractive entry points at current levels and highlights PayPal and Visa as his top picks.
