LONDON...Adopting Artificial Intelligence in Financial Services: a Risk Management Perspective

More and more businesses are starting to adopt Artificial Intelligence based solutions. Besides considering the apparent project risk that implementing such techniques introduce, enterprises need to consider what the overall impact will be on their Risk Profile after the launch.
