Artificial Intelligence is a term that while very well received, often seems complicated to implement in banks. Everyone wants to adopt AI, but not many know how to navigate its implementation. We have arranged a series of panel discussions with industry professionals from some of the top banks and consultancies to share their experience of implementing AI.

This event is for you if..

  • You desire to learn about the various applications of AI
  • You are unsure of how to measure the impact of your AI projects
  • You believe AI adoption should be implemented in the back office as well
  • You are serious about evaluating the multitude of AI vendors in the market
  • You sit in the C-suite or head a department in the financial services industry
  • You wish to know the current state of AI adoption in the UAE Financial Services industry
