    I found the post by Doug & Roger about ML very interesting.

    In the current crisis, the relevant question being asked is, how is the model holding up by segments or cohorts of customer (especially in risk). So model monitoring and rule overlays is now more important than retraining the model, because performance data is still unstable.

    As example, segment by industry codes for risk default models since for example, Covid impacts transportation differently than high tech manufacturing.

    Also, decision management workflow automation and compliance is becoming important capabilities that banks need to have. Ability to rapidly refine strategies as environment shifts and then ‘learning’ from key post decision metrics like losses by segments will be critical agility requirements for banks.
