The Projects

The tech centre is currently working on several projects, including:


1. PERIMETER | data insights

Using the data lake that comes from being the world’s largest payment transaction processor—with 88 billion transactions and $2.2 trillion sales volume per year across 118 countries and 195 local payment methods—the PERIMETER team is using machine learning and artificial intelligence concepts to develop new methods to identify and mitigate fraud. Their work will lead to greater customer insights, reduced risk, and seamless interaction in all areas of the payments ecosystem.

2. JUPITER | intelligent infrastructure

The JUPITER team is working on the development of a next-generation intelligent integrated infrastructure automation platform designed for the intersection of technology, global regulatory compliance, and data concerns. Through the use of open-source and proprietary technologies—and industry insight only available as a result of First Data’s global market position—the JUPITER team is developing an automated set of processes and technologies that incorporate geographic and regulatory awareness frameworks.

3. HORIZON | international commerce

The HORIZON team is working toward the next generation of commerce enablement by using intelligent infrastructure and investigating new application architectures and service concepts. The team is exploring innovative interfaces to incorporate the Internet of Things, bot technologies, and marketplace commerce to enable traditional and nontraditional payments plus funds processing and settlement. HORIZON is also diving into the next generation in payment technologies and experiences such as social payments, as well as contextual and conversational commerce.
