Accelerating AI Adoption in Financial Services: Ethics, Trust & Public Confidence
Accelerating AI Adoption in Financial Services: Ethics, Trust & Public Confidence

Artificial intelligence is at an inflection point - where what’s slowing widespread adoption is trust. Rebuilding trust in AI requires taking a responsible approach to developing and using the technology. This couldn’t be more pertinent for the financial services industry, with banking institutions coming under scrutiny for use of ‘black box’ AI systems and issues pertaining to fairness and bias. Machine learning systems that are designed with in-built AI governance are more transparent, explainable and fair, with the ability to detect and correct unintended biases that can creep into these systems. 

The financial services industry is undergoing a seismic shift in data-driven innovation, yet truly data-driven innovation in banking will require two fundamental changes. With digital banking, hyper-personalisation will need to happen in real time to support mobile experiences. At the same time, model risk management will need to evolve to address model risks to retain customer trust in the use of AI. Hear how organisations are building responsible AI systems, with in-built AI governance for a range of use cases across FSI.

Accelerating AI Adoption in Financial Services: Ethics, Trust & Public Confidence

Artificial intelligence is at an inflection point - where what’s slowing widespread adoption is trust. Rebuilding trust in AI requires taking a responsible approach to developing and using the technology. This couldn’t be more pertinent for the financial services industry, with banking institutions coming under scrutiny for use of ‘black box’ AI systems and issues pertaining to fairness and bias. Machine learning systems that are designed with in-built AI governance are more transparent, explainable and fair, with the ability to detect and correct unintended biases that can creep into these systems. 

The financial services industry is undergoing a seismic shift in data-driven innovation, yet truly data-driven innovation in banking will require two fundamental changes. With digital banking, hyper-personalisation will need to happen in real time to support mobile experiences. At the same time, model risk management will need to evolve to address model risks to retain customer trust in the use of AI. Hear how organisations are building responsible AI systems, with in-built AI governance for a range of use cases across FSI.
