Retail Banking — Fraud Detection

Demo Type

Product Tutorial




What you’ll learn

The Databricks Lakehouse Platform is an open architecture that combines the best elements of data lakes and data warehouses. In this demo, we’ll show you how to build a real-time fraud detection system for banking transactions, delivering data and insights that would typically take months of effort on legacy platforms.

This demo covers the end-to-end lakehouse platform:

  • Ingest data from external systems (EPR/Salesforce) and then transform it using Delta Live Tables (DLT), a declarative ETL framework for building reliable, maintainable and testable data processing pipelines
  • Secure your ingested data to ensure governance and security on top of PII data
  • Leverage Databricks SQL and the warehouse endpoints to build dashboards to analyze the ingested data and understand the existing fraud
  • Build a machine learning model with Databricks AutoML to flag transactions at risk
  • Leverage Databricks Model Serving to deploy a REST API serving real-time inferences in milliseconds with model A/B testing
  • Orchestrate all these steps with Databricks Workflows


To install the demo, get a free Databricks workspace and execute the following two commands in a Python notebook

%pip install dbdemos
import dbdemos
