Abstract: The World Economic Forum claims the world is on the cusp of the "Fourth Industrial Revolution," caused by the rise of robots and artificial intelligence. WEF estimates that these technologies could potentially put 5 million people out of work by 2020. A joint study by Citi and Oxford University earlier this year estimated that an incredible 77% of jobs in China could be at risk of automation, while the figure stands at 57% of jobs across the OECD. The rise of the “bots” in finance represents both a challenge and an opportunity. A recent Deloitte analysis indicates that in the UK 56 per cent of roles in a typical UK finance function could be automated. This presentation will explore current and future use cases for AI and Machine Learning in finance and how to prepare for the radical transformation these powerful tools will enable. Finance has always been about numbers, but now it’s also about mastering algorithms. Are you ready? What do you need to know to be ready?
