    The Transformation of the Financial Industry and the Application of Artificial Intelligence

    Financial Institutions across the world are well on their way to adopting Artificial Intelligence(AI). AI has big implications for these institutions that want to exploit the opportunities presented by enormous amounts of data generating through consumers, markets, businesses, and more. In this session, Deloitte will explain what are the key shifts happening in the Financial Services sector and how banks and insurance companies are thinking about leveraging AI as a strategic accelerator towards achieving their business vision. If applied correctly, AI has the potential to transform all aspects of business operations to maximize enterprise value in terms of revenue growth, operating margin, asset efficiency, and risk mitigation. Deloitte will present ways for financial institutions to effectively unlock value from data, technology, talent and ecosystem partnerships through the use of AI. Deloitte will also bring in real-world case studies from the industry to substantiate the transformative power of AI.
