Data Science Driven Digital Transformation

Abstract: Impending open banking regulations and increasing competition has forced large banks to go through perhaps the largest transformation program in decades. Data and innovative applications of Machine Learning lies at the heart of this transformation. There are many success stories and many more challenges. Careful analysis of these dimensions holds the key to successful delivery of these HUGE transformation programs.

Kanishka plans to discuss the broader premise, some challenges and some clever applications of ML to drive such changes.
