More Evidence of Growing Adoption
There are a number of data points demonstrating wider adoption of AI/ML across capital markets operations. I discussed this evidence (and we came across more examples) during a recent panel organized by Broadridge at SIFMA Ops 2019 in Boca Raton, Florida entitled: No Longer SciFi: How Capital Markets and Wealth Firms Are Already Leveraging AI and ML In Their Operations.
I was joined by:
Moderator: Michael Tae
Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy, Broadridge
Ramprasad "RP" Sandilya
Vice President, Solutions Offerings, Broadridge
Head of Technology, Wealth Management Americas
You can see this On-Demand Webinar, No Longer SciFi - How Capital Markets and Wealth Firms Are Already Leveraging AI and ML In Their Operations, right here (requires registration).
Here is the set up for the event. It's a thorough discussion, and we brought up a lot of real world examples of AI/ML and RPA across the capital markets and wealth management segments, including at UBS and through Broadridge's own exepriences with clients. I focused on other examples I see across the industry. I kick off my comments at the 6:00 minute mark. One of the fun parts at the end was speculation about the future of robots and AI/ML in our world, and I was firmly in the robots are our helpers and friends categories (e.g., Star Wars) around the 57 minute mark. Others disagreed.
We continue to see the application of AI/ML across capital markets. Recently, I highlighted the use of NLP/NLG in investment research and the advent of the cyborg analyst and ResearchTech.
From new data providers, to analytics, to natural language processing (NLP) and natural language generation (NLG), to digital distribution, to collaboration and chat, a multitude of technology firms now support the investment decisioning process. AI/ML will continue to see wider adoption.
We will continue to look for more examples of this acceleration of adoption across capital markets.
