Artificial Intelligence Developments
Citi Commercial Cards recently deployed an intelligent virtual agent (“IVA”) capability within its call centers in the U.S. by leveraging technology from Interactions. The IVA solution leverages Interactions’ Adaptive Understanding technology.
Mastercard inked an agreement in December to acquire RiskRecon, a provider of artificial intelligence and data analytics solutions to support companies in protecting their cyber systems and infrastructure. With RiskRecon’s pioneering scanning and evaluation technologies, organizations can proactively manage cyber risks, better safeguarding critical intellectual property and consumer and payment data, according to Bankcenter.
Robert McKinley, Senior Analyst for CardWeb, CardFlash, CardTrak and CardData says increased penetration of cloud-based solutions and growth associated with the artificial intelligence and cognitive computing market are the major factors boosting the growth of the AI market. However, limited availability of trained professionals is expected to impede the market growth.
Some experts believe that AI in its current form is starting to slow down, reaching its maximum capacity — at least for the time being. The deep learning mechanisms that currently help power and push the advancement of AI are pushing up against their limitations. Some of that has to do with the lack of necessary computing power to continue improving, according to CardBuzz.
AI in Finance Summit
The AI in Finance summit by RE-WORK will focus on pattern recognition, robo advisors, neural networks, retail finance and compliance. The event will feature about 60 speakers and more than 600 attendees, according to PYVNTS.
