Event description


As Artificial Intelligence makes its way into our lives, many financial institutions are faced with the difficult question "Should AI be embraced?". While the eagerness to integrate AI into the financial sector has waxed and waned over the past few decades, it now appears that Fintech is ready to dive head-first into AI as a standard for handling customer transactions, financial risk assessment, industry regulatory compliance and reduced institutional costs.

There is no doubt that AI can be invaluable for the financial industry, but it comes at a price. We expect to witness both success stories and tragic failures over the course of the next few years. With any first-generation technology, there are going to be bugs to solve, and a learning curve before intimate industry familiarity with AI is obtained.

"AI is not only going to revolutionize the financial industry but become the industry itself"

Join our next event to get the real story - Artificial Intelligence in the Financial Industry.

Agenda includes:

o Introduction of AI in use cases in the industry

o Progress in AI and New Opportunities in Financial Services

o Challenges of AI in banking

o Applications of AI in Financial Services

o Panel discussion and Q&A
