This course evaluates the current impact and future opportunities, of technological innovation in the AML Compliance Cycle. The course examines, through the demonstration of a range of contemporary AML (RegTech) solutions, the potential of various technologies – machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), natural language processing (NLP), and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) – to enhance the operational efficiency, and increase the quality of actionable information, of the AML Compliance Cycle.

The evaluation of use cases across several sectors with AML reporting obligations, and an examination of the challenges in implementing innovative solutions, further develops the courses focus on the adoption of best practice in the AML Compliance Cycle. Finally, to position Ireland as a centre of innovative and regulatory excellence, the course formulates strategic priorities for stakeholders in the Irish AML/CTF ecosystem.
