Velliv and 2021.AI are working together on a new project in the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority’s Lab

In a new project, The Danish Financial Supervisory Authority’s Sandbox, “FT Lab”, the tech company 2021.AI, and Velliv will test if Danish-language minutes can be written automatically using machine learning. At the same time, the test will provide a deeper insight into the use of, among other things, machine learning.


The project in FT Lab is based on machine learning, focusing on Danish-language natural language processing (NLP), to automatically generate minutes of counselor interviews. In this project, 2021.AI and Velliv will develop a platform that will support the documentation of both the model’s development and the fulfillment of requirements for advisory responsibilities. The project could potentially provide an insight into how companies can document that rules and internal guidelines are being complied with. The project will run through the spring and summer of 2021.

“Machine learning has great potential, and the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority works to ensure that this potential is realized in a way that benefits society broadly,” says Tobias Thygesen, who as Head of the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority’s office for fintech, payment services and governance is responsible for FT Lab.

The specific project will examine how a company, during the model development process, can automatically document considerations of data ethics issues, guidelines and regulations.
