A Data Pro shortlisted for Innovative Enterprise of the Year

The annual “Innovative Enterprise of the Year” awards, organized by the Applied Research and Communications Fund, distinguished A Data Pro with a nomination in the “Market leadership” category of the most innovative Bulgarian companies, placing it in the country’s TOP 3. The event took place at the Sofia Hotel Balkan and distinguished companies were awarded by Bulgarian President Rumen Radev.

A Data Pro’s entry, built around the SIP_Finder project, which automatically finds Special Interest Persons (SIP), was shortlisted in the TOP 3 in one of two special award categories. The main goal of the tool is to automatically go through large sets of data and automatically classify individuals that fit the SIP profile and have engaged in criminal activity. The model defines these individuals, the type of crime, its monetary value and the penalty that followed the crime.

In SIP_Finder’s pilot phase, Identrics, A Data Pro’s research and development hub, used machine learning to create an artificial intelligence which imitates the decision making process and workflow of our risk and compliance analysts when analysing and classifying articles, achieving a 93 percent accuracy rate in identifying individuals correctly. In 2018 the project won Identrics the bronze award in the Stevie International Business Awards, as well as nominations for the Data Management Review awards and the WealthBriefing Awards.
