The world of technology has evolved at a breakneck pace over the course of the last half a decade or so, and some of the technologies that have evolved have the potential of upending entire industries. One of those new technologies is artificial intelligence or AI, and over the past couple of years, it has been successfully used across a wide range of industries. The finance industry has always been quick to adopt the latest technologies, and it has paid rich dividends throughout the industry's history. In the same vein, the finance industry has also embraced AI. At the end of the day, all the firms in the industry are looking for that edge that can give them a distinct advantage and hence, it is not a surprise that AI is now such an integral part of the industry.
