What you'll learn

- For people in Banking, these are applied applications of AI within the banking operation - For people in AI and RPA, these are additional examples and approaches (with impact) for applying AI within the enterprise


For financial institutions, a core opportunity to apply AI is within their Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know-Your-Customer (KYC) areas of the business. While banks have received incredible benefit by applying AI to monitoring fraudulent transactions, significant opportunities in fighting financial crime lie with automating the highly manual aspects of AML and KYC. Processes such as Negative News, Beneficial Ownership Trees, and Company Entities require not only the ability to address highly variable unstructured data sets but also the ability to provide enterprise controls to ensure quality and provide transparency in to each step of the process. AI-powered RPA provides a powerful approach for banks to achieve benefits from automation without sacrificing auditability and traceability. Unlike traditional RPA which focuses on rules-based aspects of interacting with user interfaces, AI-driven RPA greatly extends the capability into decisions on the highly unstructured data such as news articles. This session will focus on multiple case studies where AI-powered RPA is providing significant benefits.
