Identity verification is the process in which we digitally confirm the legitimacy of a real world document. This process is necessary for many businesses to meet their compliance requirements and mitigate their fraud risk. A common form of fraud is the duplication and alteration of stolen documents across multiple user accounts. In this talk, we will discuss how Coinbase solves the problem of detecting similar identity documents using deep learning.

Note: This is a short talk. Short talks are 10-minute talks designed to offer breadth across the areas of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data engineering. The short talks are focused on the tools and practices of data science with an eye towards the software engineer.
