These vendors are applying natural-language platforms, machine learning, deep neural networks and text analytics to areas of banking and investment service activities that didn’t apply AI traditionally.

Highlighting this, we recently published our ‘Cool Vendors in AI for Banking and Investment Services, 2018’. We showcase the potential of these four vendors and how they will disrupt banking and investment services that are applying AI-based solutions for risk management in banking.
