Stripe , Head of Data and Machine Learning Products
Michael Manapat, head of data and machine learning products at Stripe, leads a team of engineers and data scientists responsible for building machine learning technology into all of Stripe’s products. Stripe is a global payments platform built to help entrepreneurs accept payments & onboard sellers in a matter of minutes. While the vast majority of transactions on Stripe are legitimate, Michael’s team have built intelligent fraud prevention algorithms to protect small businesses. The technology detects patterns of suspicious behaviour and protects merchants from processing fraudulent transaction. Conversely, Stripe also uses AI to shut out fraudulent merchants who are looking to process shady transactions. Prior to Stripe, he worked at Google and holds a Ph.D. in mathematics from MIT.
