This assignment is a question from an Info Support customer. This customer is a large credit provider. The customer daily receives large amounts of documents which are manually checked for modifications and signs of forgery. A example of this is a payslip where the amounts are changed. Automated detection of modifications would contribute to preventing fraud at companies and organizations that process these documents.

Manually checking documents is labor intensive and error prone. Analysing documents with a neural network is potentially cheaper and less error prone. However, we currently do not know to which extent this could replace or support the manual labor. You will work on answering this question.

Research how forged documents can be detected using a neural network. Compare multiple designs and types such as RNN and CNN for this. Create a PoC for one of the designs.
