This talk will take a look at Human-Computer Symbiosis as an approach to building systems to solve complex problems that resist automated solutions.  Starting with an overview of the topic and its history and relation to the field of computer science and artificial intelligence, we'll then take a look at a couple of specific instances where the approach has been used to do fraud detection in commercial banks.
