To unleash the full potential of AI, Intuit envisions a future that melds the best capabilities of machines and humans to deliver deeply personalized customer experiences, all on one secure platform.

Bharath Kadaba explores how the company is combining rules-based knowledge engineering with data-driven machine learning and natural language processing to build human-expert-in-the-loop AI systems of the future.

In financial services—where compliance is a key consideration and the margin of error is slim to none—this approach can give consumers accurate, optimized, and explainable personal finance guidance. This approach is equally pertinent to many other domains.

This session is sponsored by Intuit.
