Last month, Socure’s founder and chief strategy officer, Sunil Madhu, talked with PYMNTS.com’s CEO Karen Webster about how the current process for identity verification is broken. Madhu discussed how machine learning, on the other hand, can significantly advance identification verification and how Socure’s proprietary robot, Aida, is already making great strides in this regard.
