Saudi-Based Mozn Uses AI To Detect Money Laundering & Fraud

The company combats a wide range of financial crimes using pattern recognition and advanced algorithms.

Saudi Arabia’s Mozn, an AI platform founded by Dr. Mohammed Alhussein, uses advanced artificial intelligence algorithms to detect and prevent financial crimes and increase compliance.

The company’s advanced platform is known as FOCAL. It can sift through masses of financial data using pattern recognition and other advanced techniques to spot fraud and money laundering in real time.

Dr. Alhussein developed the FOCAL platform by studying anti-money-laundering and anti-terrorism legislation and compliance and quickly realized that traditional (often manual) checks and safeguards were too slow to act.

Mozn’s AI technology uses name-matching algorithms uniquely optimized for the Arabic language and reconciles its findings against 1,300 international and regional sanctions. Meanwhile, the system’s anti-fraud functionality detects suspicious patterns by confirming payee identities against the records of destination accounts — a process that is said to reduce investigation times by up to 95%.

Although the platform was launched in Saudi Arabia, CEO Dr. Mohammed Alhussein recently announced plans to expand into the UAE, noting that the company’s long-term goal would be to develop operations further across the GCC. “The UAE has been making significant strides in enhancing its AML compliance and combating financial fraud, and Mozn entering UAE market will help accelerate these efforts,” Alhussein stated in a press release. “We are excited to begin this next chapter in Mozn’s growth journey as we enter the broader GCC market through our UAE office”.

Adobe Teases New AI Editing Tools And Updates In Premiere Pro

The video editing app will be enhanced with a generative extend tool, text-to-video, improved timeline waveforms, and more.



adobe teases new ai editing tools and updates in premiere pro

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
