The potential and application bandwidth of AI/ML in Financial Services is breathtaking.
However, enterprise scaling and model exposure to live environments turn out to be quite challenging.
Additionally, further regulation of AI is expected or has already been drafted.
To comply with industry regulations, banks are looking to explainable AI (XAI), a set of tools, design principles, and best practices that unlock how AI models make decisions--such as detailing how a decision forest is developed in order to avoid bias in creditworthiness evaluation of customers.
NVIDIA, World Alliance of International Finance Centers (WAIFC) and World Economic Forum (WEF) are excited to present this unique series on AI in financial services across the globe. We have invited thought leaders and AI personalities to discuss the latest implications, trends, strategies and challenges. What are the global and local trends? How do financial centers, financial service companies and financial supervisors position themselves? How are the technical and ethical challenges addressed? What are best practices, standards, platforms and infrastructures? Where is the best talent, research and innovation?
Join us on this very timely and exciting journey around the globe!
