Machine Learning

The State of Current Systems

Recent advances in technology have enabled financial institutions to explore the applications of machine learning techniques in areas like customer service, personal finance and wealth management, and fraud and risk management. While increasing reduction of human effort is the main aim of implementing machine learning, are the current systems built for our industry prepared for large intelligence operations?

3:45 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Machine Learning

Instant Gratification

A human brain, if pushed to its extreme, is capable of doing only a few tasks at the same time. Whereas machines having no boundaries can concentrate on several thousands of tasks—one of the reasons why we should use machine learning in fintech. And while machine learning may provide the most immediate opportunities for the servicing and mortgage space, how can this artificial intelligence change the game?
