Ad-Hoc AI vs. End-to-End Implementation - How to Deploy a Business IT Strategy That Ties Together Narrow AI Projects

A lot of businesses are adopting a “bolt-on” approach to AI. This, whilst being capable of producing ROI in the short term, could end up resulting in a disparate, siloed AI architecture that will prevent businesses from ever “breaking the glass ceiling” when it comes to engineering an end-to-end, AI powered business.


This session will explore how to:

  • Scale AI innovation in the business without causing wholesale (and costly) disruption
  • Prevent a plateau in AI capability by implementing the right platform strategy to accompany AI projects.
  • Ensuring back end architecture / cloud architecture is readied and capable of joining up disparate AI projects before, during, and after AI implementation
  • Is it actually possible to implement an “end-to-end” AI solution? And if not, what is the next best thing?

Panel Discussion: AI in Finance
  • Satish Shankar - Data and AI Lead, Manulife
  • Bireshwar Dasgupta - Head, Analytics and Digital Propositions, Commercial Banking, Standard Chartered Bank

To compete with digital-first players, financial services executives must ask critical questions about their business’ operating model, and look for ways in which AI and ML can help deliver the agility, customer experience, and cost reductions they need to stay competitive.

This roundtable will help answer these questions by exploring:

  • AI’s role in creating personalised quotes, credit analyses and asset management insights for customers.
  • The technical and cultural issues that need to be addressed, and how to overcome the deeply embedded legacy challenges associated with them.
  • The legal and ethical issues surrounding the processing of customer data through machine learning platform, across cloud servers, and how to approach the migration of regulated data.
  • Lessons that can be learned from digital-first players in terms of customer service, digital products and lean mentalities - and how to leverage your established position in the market to quell the threat of new market entrants.
