Visa’s New AI-Powered Fraud Prevention Solutions and $100 Million Investment in Generative Businesses

Visa Introduces New AI-Driven Technology to Combat Fraud

Visa Inc. is utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance its security measures and provide more solutions for business clients. The company has recently introduced three new technologies aimed at preventing fraud in digital transactions and real-time account-to-account payments. One of these solutions is an AI technology that will help detect and prevent fraud in transactions where a credit card is not used, set to be available to clients in the first half of the year.

In addition, Visa is working on accepting payments that do not involve Visa cards using its existing Visa Advanced Authorization and Visa Risk Manager solutions. Antony Cahill, global head of value-added services at Visa, emphasized the importance of driving bad actors out of the ecosystem in a recent interview. Last year, Visa reported that it helped prevent $40 billion worth of fraudulent activity, almost double the amount from the previous year.

Visa’s commitment to investing in generative AI-focused businesses with a $100 million strategy in October aims to support future initiatives that could influence business practices. Other companies like PayPal Holdings Inc. and Mastercard Inc. are also incorporating AI technology to reduce expenses and enhance fraud-detection efforts. PayPal’s Venmo product plans to use AI to provide customers with a more customized online shopping experience while Mastercard is offering a risk-detection tool powered by AI to help banks better identify suspicious transactions, ultimately combating fraud.
