Platform operating model for the AI bank of the future

#artificialintelligence

As we noted at the beginning of this series on the AI bank of the future, disruptive AI technologies can dramatically improve banks' performance in four key areas: higher profits, at-scale personalization, smart omnichannel experiences, and rapid innovation cycles. The stakes could not be higher, and success requires a holistic transformation spanning all layers of the organization's capability stack. Our previous articles have focused on the capability stack's technology layers: reimagined engagement, 1 1. Leveraging these capabilities to create value requires an operating model combining structure, talent, culture, and ways of working to synchronize all layers of the stack. Synchronizing these layers is not easy. Any organization undertaking an AI-bank transformation must determine how to structure the organization so that its people interact and leverage tools and capabilities to deliver value for each customer at scale. In this article, we take a closer look at the need for a platform operating model, the categories and scope of operating models, and the building blocks of effective models.


Building a resilient digital foundation led by AI

#artificialintelligence

The new normal has led organisations to rethink their approach towards digital transformation to ensure business resiliency, by achieving scale and creating democratised systems. When businesses embark on their digital transformation phase, they need to focus on reimagining their customer journeys by breaking the silos across various business functions. Technology facilitates real-time flow of data across the enterprise and enables faster decision-making. Organisations are leveraging AI in confluence with technologies like cloud, analytics, machine learning to transform themselves into a data-driven enterprise for efficient operations, scalability, improved customer experience, and innovative solutions. Skilling and reskilling the workforce to adapt to new models help in accelerating adoption and implementation.


How Artificial Intelligence Is Changing The Way We Advertise

#artificialintelligence

Recently, I've been discussing Professor John Lennox's book entitled 2084, which is all about the development and production of artificial intelligence. As an Atheist, I clearly have many differences with his Christian perspective. Wherever you sit with regard to the God question, Christianity, or the ethical concerns that are raised with the advancement of AI, you have to give varying perspectives their due. Today, I wanted to spend a moment chatting about how artificial intelligence is impacting the advertising world and the serious ethical questions that are raised by that. So let's begin with a couple of points from that book Professor Lennox wrote.


Interview: Marc Andreessen, VC and tech pioneer

#artificialintelligence

Marc Andreessen should need no introduction, but I'll do one anyway. He helped code the first widely used graphical web browser, Mosaic, which as I see it makes him one of the inventors of the internet. He co-founded Netscape and various other companies. He also co-founded the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz (with Ben Horowitz), also known as A16Z, one of the country's largest VC firms. Recently he has launched a media publication called Future, where he occasionally writes his thoughts. Marc has been a sort of hero of mine ever since I was a teenager, when Netscape Navigator felt like it opened up the world. I came out to California in part to meet people like him. Now we know each other well, and he's a subscriber to my blog! The thing I always like about talking to Marc is how he combines relentless optimism with the concrete knowledge to back up that optimism -- both knowledge of specific details and a broad understanding of various schools of thought. Lots of people will tell you the future holds amazing possibilities; Marc will tell you exactly what those possibilities are, and why they're possible.


OECD Paving The Way Towards Trustworthy And Responsible AI

#artificialintelligence

Outgoing Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) ... [ ] Angel Gurria applauds as new Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Mathias Cormann, of Australia, takes over at the OECD headquarters in Paris, Tuesday, June, 1 2021. A recent study from the Pew Research Center showed that 53% of people in 20 countries feel that artificial intelligence has been a good thing for society. While over half the world's population has a positive view of AI, this means that one in every three people in these countries are concerned about the impacts AI can have on society. How do we ensure that AI is trustworthy and its benefits are shared by all? As the statistics show, while there is incremental improvement, there is still a level of hesitancy and suspicion towards AI among the citizens around the world.

What is RPA? – How it Works and Why It Needs to be a Part of Your Organization? - Opteamix

#artificialintelligence

Robotic Process Automation (RPA), as the name states, involves the use of technology to automate repetitive, rule-based business processes which involves filling in the same information in multiple places, reentering data, or copying and pasting. This preconfigured software system uses predefined activity choreography and business logic to automatically execute transactions, complete tasks, share information, or do a combination of these actions. It enables organizations to achieve cost efficiencies by streamlining processes and enhancing accuracy. By handing over mundane tasks to machines it enables humans to focus on work that requires judgment, creativity, and interpersonal skills rather than on routine processes. Since RPA is a preconfigured software application, it can be used'straight out of the box'.

New Book: Data Science for Economics and Finance - Methodologies and Applications

#artificialintelligence

This post is to share with you the recent publication of the book: "Data Science for Economics and Finance: Methodologies and Applications", by Sergio Consoli, Diego Reforgiato Recupero, and Michaela Saisana. The use of data science and artificial intelligence for economics and finance is providing benefits for scientists, professionals and policy-makers by improving the available data analysis methodologies for economic forecasting and therefore making our societies better prepared for the challenges of tomorrow. This book is a good example of how combining expertise from the European Commission, universities in the U.S. and Europe, financial and economic institutions, and multilateral organizations, can bring forward a shared vision on the benefits of data science applied to economics and finance; from the research point of view to the evaluation of policies on the other hand. It showcases how data science is reshaping the business sector. It includes examples of novel big data sources and some successful applications on the use of advanced machine learning, natural language processing, networks analysis, and time series analysis and forecasting, among others, in the economic and financial sectors. At the same time, the book is making an appeal for further adoption of these novel applications in the field of economics and finance so that they can reach their full potential and support policy-makers and the related stakeholders in the transformational recovery of our societies.
