AI has already begun making significant inroads into the many fintech sectors like banking, insurance, investment management, etc. Research shows that most banks will be using intelligent assistants and bots to handle a significant amount of customer service inquiries. For example, a recent survey conducted by Personetics shows that over three-quarters of financial institutions view chatbots as a viable commercial solution now or within the next 1-2 years. Fintech firms already have vast volumes of data, and are generating more each day. Today, technologies like specialized hardware, data analytics, machine learning and deep learning are already being used to either augment human tasks or beginning to replace them.
Attend this special event and hear from some of the leading AI firms that have deep experience and AI solutions in the financial services industry.

Robotic process automation (RPA) is an emerging technology designed to automate manual processes through the creation of software robots to replace or supplement employees. Some vendors are employing AI to improve the accuracy of results. RPA enables the bots to capture, interpret, and execute processes such as invoicing data, customer and employee onboarding, or triggering an automated response. The benefits of RPA tools allow a business to cut costs, improve accuracy, and speed the process of linking enterprise software applications.
This session will be moderated by Judith Hurwitz, CEO, Hurwitz & Associates, a strategic consulting and analyst firm, and will include several RPA software providers who will discuss their specific software implementation and solutions.
