[BizInsight@HKUST - Lunch Presentation Series] How AI and Deep Learning are Fuelling the Financial Industry

AI, deep learning and machine learning are rapidly changing the financial services industry, and it is important for us to discover how we can tap this capability and potential. HKUST Business School joins hands with industry experts and practitioners to organize a lunch seminar to unveil the latest FinTech trends, insights and applications.

The Era of AI – How AI is transforming the financial ecosystem
AI, deep learning and machine learning are rapidly changing the financial services industry. Business leaders, data scientists, and developers can now transform vast amounts of financial data into insightful predictions creating significant bottom-line savings.

Overcoming the challenges of Software 2.0 for Artificial Intelligence in FSI
The opportunities presented by AI are tremendous, but so are the challenges. Written in the weights of the deep neural networks, software 2.0 is trained using vast amounts of labelled data. Data, hence is the new source code, compiled by deep neural networks into weights.

Managing Data though, at the edge, in the core, on the cloud creates challenges that most firms fail to address. The ability to create a virtuous cycle of this crucial asset will therefore differentiate the firms that will survive the current AI revolution, from those that don’t. This presentation will outline the AI revolution in the FSI industry using case studies on how NetApp’s “Data Fabric” empowers customers to innovate using AI at the edge, in the core and on the cloud.
