#artificialintelligence

WorkFusion, a top provider of Intelligent Automation technology, announced it has been placed by Gartner in the Leaders quadrant of the 2020 "Magic Quadrant for Robotic Process Automation."1 Gartner recognized WorkFusion based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute. "We believe Gartner's recognition of WorkFusion in the Leaders quadrant validates our customer-first approach -- with pre-built automation solutions designed to lower costs dramatically, and in record time, for areas with higher levels of document-related manual and cognitive work across some of the most critical processes in Banking, Financial Services, Insurance, Healthcare and other sectors, " said WorkFusion CEO Alex Lyashok. "The right automation approach is to be able to deliver meaningful and measurable benefits to businesses in weeks or months, not years, and without disrupting core infrastructure or systems. As an example, for organizations in regulated-service industries such as Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI), the WorkFusion Intelligent Automation Cloud platform can quickly and easily manage document-heavy processes -- and in some cases can cut costs by 50% within 3 months," Lyashok said.

The Case for AI Risk Management

#artificialintelligence

While a long time coming, one may feel that we are nearing an inflection point in the implementation of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the financial services industry. A number of years have gone by where many organisations have invested heavily in their own research and development or by acquiring services from 3rd parties to implement AI enabled software. The nature of the beast is that experimentation is vital for success, and many experiments will inevitably fail, but there are usually around 10-20% of experiments that show promise and that have the potential to be truly game changing for the industry. Interestingly in the US, while the COVID-19 lockdown measures have had hugely negative impacts on hiring across sectors, data science roles in finance and insurance have actually increased (at least in the early stages of the pandemic). This is a sign that the industry still sees these tools and methods as something so compelling and vital for the future of their organisations.


Model Risk Management in the Age of AI - insideBIGDATA

#artificialintelligence

Clearly financial services organizations possess the impetus to take advantage of AI and ML capabilities, and yet models still aren't being deployed– which exposes a quagmire in the process of model deployment. Could it be they're focusing too much on the development aspect and ignoring the criticality of ModelOps? Model validation is required across all regulated industries, but FinServ institutions especially face significant regulatory compliance mandates from the federal government – placing yet another roadblock on their path to AI success. Given these same institutions leverage thousands of models per day, they must typically staff large teams across their model risk management program, including spinning up large teams of model validators. ModelOps refers to the process of enabling data scientists, data engineers, and IT operations teams to collaborate and scale models across an organization.
