All Financial Leaders Need to Understand Artificial Intelligence
In a world governed by data and driven by algorithms, building a competence in artificial intelligence is a requisite for leaders in the financial sector.
This doesn't mean we need to master coding or train machine learning - but we need to understand the possibilities of using AI to execute our current strategy.
AI will be the driving force behind innovation and competitiveness in the future, and the financial sector has a particularly high, unfulfilled potential.
Leaders in the financial sector are facing a number of AI realities: AI is a source of untapped potential, it's an existential risk — if you're late to the race — and it's difficult.
But contrary to popular belief, the biggest obstacle in AI initiatives is rarely the technology itself, but bad alignment with the organization’s objectives. Cause when the company is working with AI, it's basically not about technology, but about strategy.
Thus, it’s critical that leaders build a competence in artificial intelligence.
At this morning meeting, Barbara will demystify a number of buzzwords and misconceptions about artificial intelligence and explain why AI doesn’t belong in the IT department, but in the management team.
