Recorded Webinar: The potential and problems of artificial intelligence

5 December 2017

Don’t miss this opportunity to view the recording of this recently held webinar.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is emerging as a key technology for financial services firms, with applications ranging from algorithmic stock trading and credit card fraud detection to sanctions monitoring and trade settlement. The benefits of AI technologies can include automation, reduced manual intervention, improved efficiency and cost saving, but there are caveats and concerns for legal, risk and compliance officers. From a data management perspective, challenges include integration, data validation and ongoing maintenance.

The webinar will consider the potential and problems of AI, and discuss issues of risk and reward, and the impact of AI on the workforce raised in a recent Thomson Reuters white paper, The Emerging Role of Artificial Intelligence in Financial Services.

  • The potential of AI

  • Challenges of implementation
  • Impact on the workforce
  • Future developments
