Event description

Description

It’s been a while since the previous meetup, but we are back with an especially interesting topic that promises many discussions!

Upcoming Swedbank Seedtalks meetup is going to be all about artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and data science. From SIRI to self-driving cars, from chatbots to promises of replicating the human brain, AI has progressed rapidly in recent years. AI improves results by applying methods derived from aspects of Human Intelligence, and as research into the application of this knowledge has increased exponentially, so has it's use in practical business. As usual, startups and tech companies are at the forefront of AI and machine learning - what can we learn from them in bringing artificial intelligence from research to practice, especially in finance? Can machine learning and data science improve financial services and how? Financial firms were the early adopters of the mainframe computer, relational databases, and have eagerly awaited the next level of computational power. What's next for fintech in the age of AI? Stay tuned as we announce the speakers soon!

Join the discussion to hear about where we can go with AI, how companies are already using it and how that can benefit our businesses.

Stay tuned, more updates on the panel coming soon!

Seedtalks stand for planting seeds of knowledge through discussion. Join us to discover new approaches, ideas and challenge your assumptions about technology, startups, and innovation.
