Artificial intelligence makes money laundering difficult
Data exchange plays an important role in the fight against money laundering. But how do banks safeguard the privacy of their customers in this regard? We have developed a solution in collaboration with Rabobank and ABN AMRO: multi-party computation. Using artificial intelligence, banks jointly analyse sensitive data without actually sharing it. Find out how.
Money laundering often involves large amounts of money. But any self-respecting criminal uses multiple transactions at different banks when doing so, often involving a mix of national and international banks. Add to this the fact that criminals also regularly use cryptocurrencies in money laundering. In short, it is clear how difficult it is for banks to get a clear picture of these shady practices.
Multi-party computation (MPC)
The solution to combating money laundering lies in the mutual exchange of data. But, of course, within the limits of the Privacy Act. And yes, it is possible. But you need a good dose of artificial intelligence. In close collaboration with Rabobank and ABN AMRO, we have developed a Multi-Party Computation (MPC) solution. With this, banks perform analyses on shared data via an AI system, nationally and internationally.
Thanks to innovative encryption technology, this can be done in such a way that no person or system can see the data. Banks are using this solution internationally. Privacy and confidentiality of the data remain guaranteed. So, it is an ideal starting point for uncovering money laundering via data analysis.
Richer data sets with AI
The MPC solution also lends itself very well to fraud detection. And as a research tool. The AI system securely links databases containing the most sensitive types of information. This results in richer data sets, which in turn opens up new applications. For example, the possibilities within the healthcare sector with AI.

Rob de Wijk on the rise of AI in geopolitical context
Anne Fleur van Veenstra, director of science at TNO’s SA&P unit, interviews Rob de Wijk, emeritus professor of international relations in Leiden and founder of The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies. Rob is also a much sought-after expert who appears on radio and television programmes. What does the rise of AI mean geopolitically and in armed conflicts?
Bram Schot on the impact of AI on mobility
Marieke Martens, science director at TNO and professor of automated vehicles at the Eindhoven University of Technology, talks to Bram Schot. Schot was the CEO of Audi until 2020, having previously held management positions at various car makers, including Mercedes and Volkswagen. Their conversation concerns the influence of AI on mobility. How will AI impact the production process? And what does a future with autonomous vehicles look like?
Eppo Bruins on AI in different government domains
Michiel van der Meulen, chief geologist for the Geological Survey of the Netherlands (GDN), speaks with Eppo Bruins. Bruins was educated as a nuclear physicist and has spent many years working in the world of science, innovation, and technology. Between 2015 and 2021, he was a Dutch member of parliament for the Christian Union. He was recently appointed chairman of the Advisory council for science, technology and innovation (AWTI). What will AI mean for the various government domains in the coming years?
Bas Haring on AI, science and philosophy
Michiel van der Meulen, chief geologist for the Geological Survey of the Netherlands (GDN), speaks with Bas Haring. Haring originally studied artificial intelligence, which at the time still fell under the umbrella of philosophy, which is why people started calling him a philosopher. He himself feels more like a ‘folk philosopher’: Haring tries to make science and philosophy accessible to a wider audience. In 2001, he published a children’s book about evolution, Cheese and the Theory of Evolution. What better springboard for a geologist and a philosopher to talk about AI?
Arnon Grunberg on AI, creativity and morality
Peter Werkhoven, chief scientific officer at TNO, talks to Arnon Grunberg from his base in New York. Grunberg made his breakthrough in 1994 with his novel, Blue Mondays. He has since become one of the Netherlands’ best-known authors. The two talked about AI over dinner some years ago. Today, they finally get the chance to continue their conversation. What is Grunberg’s view on creativity? Can it be taught to machines? And how do humans morally relate to machines?
