Robotic Processing Automation Changing Background Screening- NAPBS Speaking Engagement


In the digital era, technology dominates our world and it is undoubtedly reshaping the background screening industry. We’ve all heard the terms Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), but how do they apply to background checks? 

Can they be used to make background checks more effective and, or efficient? How can they help to drive down the costs associated with criminal record research? I know, I got your attention on that one.

If these questions have been on your mind (or are now because you just read the above paragraph), you’ve got to join SJV’s chief technology officer, Nick Kelland and Andy Hellman, vice president of international operations at Accurate Background for their presentation at next month’s NAPBS Annual Conference in San Antonio Texas.

This session, titled, “Automation Domination - Web-Extraction and The Scalability for Driving Down Costs,” will be held on Monday, September 9th at 1:30pm CST and offers a high-level overview of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning while detailing the role Robotic Process Automation (RPA) plays in background screening today and what the future holds as technology continues to replace the need for human layered research.

Not a tech-nerd? Don’t worry about it. We’ll give you all of the information you need to be dangerous and discuss how these concepts are applicable to your consumer reporting agency (CRA).

Attendees will learn:

  • High-level overview of how AI and RPA are changing the background screening industry
  • What Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can do to expedite background checks
  • How RPA is used in background screening today and what the future holds
  • What differentiates good RPA from bad RPA
  • How RPA can be combined with ML/AI to make court research even better
  • How this technology affects Screen Scraping

Please note that this session is BYOC (bring your own costume). Star-Trek costumes are encouraged but will not be supplied.
