Prerequisite Knowledge

  • A general understanding of the financial marketplace

What you'll learn

  • Learn which applications to consider urgent priorities and what technology changes in data science and data center or cloud infrastructure you should be developing for financial services use cases


Artificial intelligence will drive some of the largest changes ever seen in the financial services industry. Though currently less visible than more well-publicized developments in autonomous driving and cloud services providers, AI applications in finance will span a huge range.

Andy Steinbach shares case studies and applications in artificial intelligence in capital markets, consumer banking, and insurance that are having an impact on financial markets. These applications impact operational efficiency, core business expertise, and customer acquisition, service, and satisfaction and will soon pervade the space so deeply that there is the potential for large disruption of century-old franchises. Andy dives into the nature of the AI algorithms being deployed, the big data technology and infrastructure required for deployment, the state of readiness and progress in these areas, and what applications are candidates for the crucial make versus buy decisions.
