How AI and machine learning are driving financial inclusion around the world.

Thursday 19 July 2018

One of the biggest concerns about the emerging commercial viability of AI is the possibility that a huge number of people might lose their jobs to software and robots that can do those jobs better and/or cheaper. This is a valid concern, and we obviously need to address the significant ways in which AI is likely to disrupt people’s lives. But this is only half the story; AI also has a huge role in job creation, particularly in emerging economies.

To be clear, this is not potential future impact; this change is happening already, and has been underway for several years now. Perhaps the most surprising thing is that, despite the growing dominance of online retailers, this phenomenal job growth is being fueled primarily by the success of small local businesses. And AI is playing a major role in making that success happen.

I’d like to invite you to join me at IP EXPO Europe, at London’s ExCeL centre on 3 October 2018, for a session where we will explore this phenomenon in detail. Our exploration will be evidence-based: we will be focusing on proven research and delivered results from some real-world implementations in various countries around the world, including Indonesia, China, Kenya, and others. The discussion will include:

  • An understanding of the outsized effect that small business growth has on job creation
  • An understanding of the biggest problems facing small businesses in both emerging and mature economies
  • A detailed look at how AI is already being used to address those challenges
  • Some of the truly surprising discoveries we have made along the way, some of which we never would have uncovered any other way

To attend this session register now at www.ipexpoeurope.com  Areiel Wolanow is the Managing Director of Finserv Experts, an independent consultancy offering delivery and advisory services in machine learning and blockchain. Areiel led the team that implementation of machine learning-based loan origination for Kenya’s world-leading mPesa mobile payments platform, and has addressed the G20 on how AI can drive financial inclusion around the world.
