What is AI? A Practical Guide for Future Finance Professionals
We are still decades away from being able to build systems that ‘think’ exactly like humans do. Where does that leave us now in terms of AI in finance? There is plenty of hype around the use of AI/ML in finance but few can demonstrate genuine use of such methods. A lot can still be done in terms of intelligent automation (IA as it were) but it isn’t exciting to talk about data analysis, statistics and well designed database systems. In fact, such approaches lie at the heart of many good FinTech propositions.
This Masterclass aims to separate some of the hype from the reality.
