Keynote Address: A clear vision of the future financial landscape will be critical to good strategic and governance decisions as financial institutions around the world face growing competitive pressure to make major strategic investments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and policy makers seek to navigate the challenging regulatory and social uncertainties emerging globally.

This is according to the World Economic Forum’s new report on the impact of AI on financial services.

Denizhan Uykur, keynote speaker and a lead author of this report will speak to the key findings of that report, and provide unique insights and examples from the global conversations that made it possible.
