With roots all the way back to algorithmic trading in the 1980s, the financial services sector has long been home to innovations in machine learning and AI techniques. We’re now in the midst of a rapid acceleration AI investment in financial services, touching nearly all corners of the financial services industry. In this talk, we’ll discuss the highest-value uses for AI-based cognitive systems already in use today in financial services companies, as well as survey the burgeoning startup landscape to speculate on the high-potential use cases that might emerge over the next several years.
