Exploring AI Innovations in Finance

IT Innovations , Infrastructure

A workshop aimed at financial services organisations is taking place in London to help business leaders understand and explore opportunities within artificial intelligence. 

The session, ‘AI in finance: exploring innovations in machine learning and automation for financial services’, will be held at Atlantic House, on Wednesday 9thNovember and will see 15 speakers deliver practical and educational presentations and facilitated discussions. 

Expert speakers include Peter Sayburn, co-founder and CEO of proposition design consultancy, Market Gravity, who will deliver a facilitated discussion on robotics for manual process automation. He will lead debates on where the human touch is and isn’t needed, outlining potential cost-savings associated with robotics and how it can improve service quality, accuracy and scalability. He will also consider how it can become an alternative to standardising business processes and facilitate integration among disparate systems. 

Peter is an entrepreneur, investor and author who has worked with some of the world’s foremost financial services businesses. He is passionate in the belief that if large companies are to live  and grow in the digital age they must create a culture of innovation and embrace new technologies, such as AI, to stay ahead in the competitive marketplace. 

Peter says: "Artificial intelligence represents a huge opportunity for the finance sector and it’s important for organisations to get involved and embrace the technology.  It can improve the efficiency of their processes, meet consumer demand for speed, personalisation and convenience, and allows businesses to launch innovative new products and services to compete with new challengers and entrants to the financial services sector. 

“This event brings together experts to share knowledge, experience and predictions on what’s coming up in the near future for AI and where the market is going. I’m delighted to be presenting alongside leading innovators from the financial services and tech sectors and look forward to some lively discussions.” 

Marie Walker, director and co-founder of Event Creation Network, designed and organised the AI in Finance event. She says: “London is a hub of fintech innovation with hundreds of organisations developing exciting new products and services and AI is one of the technologies driving these innovations forward. Research from TABB Group Services highlighted that over two thirds of financial service firms believe AI will become hugely important in the coming years and around 34 per cent of businesses are carrying out proof concepts in the space. The event promises to be informative and compelling, giving attendees practical steps to explore regulatory compliance, customer service, financial forecasting and manual process automation.” 

The workshop will feature an impressive line-up of additional speakers including Devika Thapar from IBM Watson, Hamish Leiper from Standard Life, Guillaume Vidal from Walnut Algorithms and Clara Durodie from Cognitive Finance. 

The AI in Finance workshop takes place on Wednesday 9th November at Hogan Lovells, Atlantic House, London EC1A 2FG.  For a list of sessions and workshops and to book your ticket, visit http://ai-finance.com.
