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!
