With innovations augmenting in every sector, there comes an imperative need for banking and commerce to reinvent the customer experiences in the financial services. Artificial intelligence (Al) in this regard, plays a crucial role, where they could extend the creative problem solving capabilities and productivity of human workforce and deliver superior business results.

In the same context, BW Businessworld in collaboration with Wipro Limited and Intel, brought together industry experts, for an exclusive discussion and set the stage for a dialogue on 'Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Banking' on 15th Dec at JW Marriott Sahar, Mumbai. Leading a way forward, the forum discussed the possibilities that Al has opened across businesses.

The evening was commenced by Mr Surajit Roy, BFSI Vertical Head - IME, Wipro Ltd, who welcomed the participants and the delegates, setting the tone for discussion with the recent influx of digitalisation and Al in the sector.

rather than the human being himself. Anything that gets computed can get measured, controlled and automated. Reasoning, linguistic, statistics, all these areas are the user cases of the same where Al is playing a huge role'; says Mr Hungund.

The panel discussion on 'Intelligent Analytics & Machine Learning: Expanding New Horizons in Banking' was moderated by Mr Pranjal Sharma, Advisory Board, PACI, World Economic Forum and columnist with BW Businessworld.

"Three basic factors that have led to the resurgence of Al- One, the growing volume of data with digitalisation, second, advancement of the hardware technology and third, advancement in the research area of newer networks''.

"At Intel, we have created a whole ecosystem of Al, where application can be developed and deployed which includes our already existing suits of compute, storage and network, which is being advanced to the next level. Apart from that there are open source multiple frameworks in the market, with which we work and optimize. On top of all this, we have vertical applications, where we scale with our partners including Wipro:'

In a quick interactive session, moderated by Mr Pranjal Sharma, questions were raised on the authenticity of the on line transaction or usage, from a consumer's point of view and the authority answerable.
