Duke Professor of Behavioral Economics at Duke University. Other keynote presenters will include FICO executives Dr. Stuart Wells, executive vice president and chief technology and products officer, and Jim Wehmann, executive vice president for Scores. The conference will also feature a special keynote panel bringing together leading firms from multiple industries to discuss how advanced decision management technology has transformed their businesses.
"Our clients come to FICO World to connect with other businesses and thought leaders who are putting analytic insight into action," said Wayne Huyard, executive vice president of sales, marketing and services at FICO. "Our clients tell us that FICO World is the best place to learn about the latest in analytic and decision technology. That's why FICO World continues to grow, and an unprecedented number of clients choose to participate in our sessions."
The conference will feature more than 100 speakers in nearly 80 breakout sessions on analytic innovation, auto lending, collections, credit scoring, customer onboarding and experience, cybersecurity, insurance, mortgage lending and regulatory compliance.
