描述 (Description)

In online lending business, live agents on the frontline represent the heartbeat of collections organizations. The productivity of the people who connect with consumers on a daily basis has a direct correlation with revenue.

Thus, operation management with a set of strategies are deployed to increase efficiency and performance. This could include anything from improving agent training, to creating a strong culture to increase agent retention.

In this presentation, Ying Liu will focus specifically on the pain points of the AI product. A tool engine by a refined model with an AUC of 0.83 is provided by data scientists,but the assistants in the collections team were always complaining when they found that their experience didn’t match with the AI standards. A few improvements has been iterated on the AI tool to truly popularize the product, including the combination of human and AI standards, thoughtful design of auto caller and content recommendation. It has been proved in our experiment that the performance is highly improved.

More importantly, what the speaker tries to emphasize is that the performance of the model itself is not everything, and data scientists are supposed to catch the pain points of users in the front line. We need to make a real difference with AI and we have the responsibility to create an AI friendly environment for people.
