Chatbots are having a moment, particularly for personal finance, and banks across the world are utilizing them for everything from basic customer service to assisting internal IT support. But chatbots only skim the AI landscape. Brian Pearce explains how AI helps Wells Fargo use data in a smarter way, from developing custom experiences to uncovering new insights—with customers and employees at the center of it all.
Brian dives into practical AI use cases that extend across natural language processing and machine learning, detailing how Wells Fargo is using data and AI to assist with fraud detection, share personalized contextual insights with customers, and help bankers pull information during complex customer interactions. Along the way, Brian covers what lies ahead in user experiences, why companies should focus on customer value when developing AI tools, and how AI is making work more interesting for employees and augmenting human interactions, not replacing them.
