AI For Good’ – Fact Or Fiction?

Event description: AI no longer belongs to the realm of science fiction. From voice recognition to self-driving cars and medical diagnosis, artificial intelligence is weaving its way into our lives at work and at home: so it’s safe to assume that AI, the product of decades of scientific research, will have an impact on the realm of scientific research itself. The maturation of AI technologies is the prelude to an unforeseen step change in humankind’s ability to understand and innovate. Yet big data and search companies’ utilization of AI is helping to usher in what has been called the “post-truth” era. If AI is currently struggling to discern facts from fiction, could it be that human intelligence is still a necessary component for the continued successful integration of AI? The Digital Age created a new class of citizen scientists.
Leveraging human expertise to train AI can increase the pace of democratisation of science by disrupting the way current research and development is performed and communicated.Only by blending AI’s ability to quickly process vast quantities of data with the ability of humans to understand nuance and context can we ensure facts remain facts in this post-truth era.

Accelerating AI Innovation in Banking at Scale

Artificial Intelligence is transforming the banking industry at speed and there is little doubt that the future of finance will be heavily impacted by AI technology applications. Almost every company in the financial technology sector has already started using AI to improve customer experience, gain better insights, reduce costs, prevent fraud and launch new business models. The opportunities are endless – but how can banks capture these in the best possible way and deliver on the AI promise?

In his presentation, Jesper Nordström – AI Strategy and Innovation Manager at Nordea – will talk about Nordea’s journey to accelerate AI across the organization and how the company is achieving 10x improvements through AI technologies.
