first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Radhika Ojha On Monday, Black Knight Inc. announced the acquisition of HeavyWater, an artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) provider for the financial services industry, through its custom-solution called AIVA. While it will initially be used as a platform to improve efficiencies in originations, Black Knight is looking at integrating its capabilities on the servicing side too. “We believe that AIVA will be an enterprise solution.

Black Knight said that clients benefited from the accelerated processes and reduced expenses as AIVA gained experience and manual routines were automated.  “Our focus has always been on pioneering research in machine learning and artificial intelligence and applying it to the financial services industry,” said Soofi Safavi, CEO of HeavyWater. “By using sophisticated neural networks and ‘contextual knowledge’ to continuously improve AIVA’s learning and performance, we’ve helped our clients save money, increase efficiencies, and reduce turn time.” June 5, 2018 4,197 Views Tagged with: AI artificial intelligence Black Knight Lending Loan Processing Machine Learning ML mortgage Servicing Underwriting AI artificial intelligence Black Knight Lending Loan Processing Machine Learning ML mortgage Servicing Underwriting 2018-06-05 Radhika Ojha Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.

75 percent of Americans say immigration is a good thing: Gallup poll

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Three-quarters of Americans say immigration is a good thing, according to a Gallup poll released Thursday.The number — 75 percent — is a “record-high” and includes majorities from all party groups, according to Gallup.The findings are based on a poll conduced between June 1 and June 13.Last year, 71 percent of those polled said they believe immigration is a good thing, while just 19 percent considered it a bad thing.Since Gallup began taking the poll in 2001, the majority of Americans have viewed immigration as a positive thing for the U.S. in all but one year — in 2002, when they conducted the poll about nine months after the 9/11 terror attacks.This year Gallup tested alternative wording on the question, given attempts by the Trump administration to cut back on legal immigration, it said. The poll asked half respondents how they felt about “legal immigration,” while the other half was given a question that did not specify a particular type of immigration.Gallup found that Americans are more likely to support legal immigration, with 84 percent of the people polled describing “legal” immigration as a good thing.The Trump administration has enacted a “zero-tolerance” policy approach to border protection, which has resulted in thousands of children being separated from their parents upon crossing the border in recent months.Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday to end the practice, but Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen described the immigration crisis as a “national security issue” today.“Obviously we are all focused in recent weeks on unaccompanied children and others who migrate across but unfortunately our loopholes encourage that behavior,” she told a crowd at the 2018 Capitol Hill National Security Forum.The House of Representatives is planning to vote on two pieces of immigration legislation, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) protections for immigrants who came into the country with their parents at a young age, according to Gallup.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

First of 8 alleged gang members indicted in fatal mistaken identity stabbing

first_imgChief Terence Monahan/NYPDChiefofDept(NEW YORK) — Prosecutors lodged criminal charges against an Indiana man after he allegedly dropped his gun in Ikea and a 6-year-old boy picked it up and fired it.Francis T. Wright, 62, of Camby, Indiana was charged Thursday with criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon after the child found the gun in the cushions of a couch on display and fired one round, according to a statement from Sgt. Tom Weger of the Fishers Police Department.“After conducting a full review, Hamilton County Prosecutor Lee Buckingham filed criminal charges against the owner of the gun,” the statement said.The first of the eight alleged gang members charged in the fatal stabbing of a 15-year-old Bronx teen was indicted by a grand jury, prosecutors said Friday.The Bronx grand jury handed up an indictment charging Kevin Alvarez, 19, second degree murder in the stabbing death of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, prosecutors said during a brief appearance Friday.Police said Guzman-Feliz, known to friends as “Junior,” and member of NYPD Law Enforcement Explorer program, was mistaken for someone else when members of the Trinitarios street gang attacked him with a knife and a machete earlier this month.He later died after running three blocks to a nearby hospital.Alvarez turned himself in to police after the attack. The seven other suspects were arrested later and are expected to be indicted next week.Alvarez’ attorney, Manuel Portela, said he would not discuss the “the underlying circumstances of the case.”“But what I can tell you about Kevin Alvarez is up until this day he had no criminal history, no history of violence,” Portela said. ” … He was in the U.S. military [and] received a medical honorable discharge prior to this incident.”Alvarez is due back in court on July 16.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Flying umbrella impales teenage boy at Massachusetts beach

first_imgmbbirdy/iStock(BOSTON) — A teenage boy was rushed to the hospital Friday after being impaled by a flying umbrella on a Massachusetts beach, authorities said. The 13-year-old boy was at Good Harbor Beach in Glouchester on Friday afternoon when a gust of wind picked up the umbrella, which then struck and punctured his shoulder, according to the Gloucester Fire Department.Witnesses told ABC Boston affiliate WCVB-TV that the teen was bleeding profusely and bystanders helped apply a tourniquet before emergency crews arrived on scene. “I was sitting right here, and a little gust of wind came up, and the umbrella popped straight up in the air,” one witness said. “The kid was standing in the way on the beach. He couldn’t get out of the way.”First responders carried the boy off the beach and transported him to a local hospital.
