In the market today, the term “AI” is thrown around like a baseball on a baseball field. Similar to what happened when blockchain/web3 was introduced, everyone is attempting to show that they are using some sort of AI mechanism in their solution… OR, alternatively, they are building their solution on top of popular AI solutions, like the tools from Open AI, ChatGPT, Claude, etc. Although these solutions and businesses are filled with hype, they are failing to find the most interesting – and useful solutions for AI to solve for our world. One such area is financial services. This includes the other buzz word that is thrown around today – fintech – but so much more.
Recently, we released a new series entitled Beyond Bots: the REAL Impact of AI on Financial Services, sponsored by our good friends at Ntropy, In this series, we hear from the founders of Ntropy, along with some of their heaviest hitting companies, about how data, learning models, and the proper use of AI, is turning the industry on its head.
