The financial industry is turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to complete tasks that were previously performed by humans. Financial firms are harnessing AI to process huge volumes of data, detect fraud by flagging unusual transactions, interact with customers online, among many other important tasks. For instance, Domeyard LP, a hedge fund focusing on high-frequency trading, incorporates machine learning to make trades. How is AI being used in the financial industry? What are the benefits and challenges of AI? What is its potential? This program will bring together experts to discuss the current applications of AI in finance, and its future implications for the financial services landscape.
