RPA & Artificial Intelligence BFSI World Summit

Building on the groundbreaking success of RPA & AI Summit 2016, PEX Network and SSON are proud to bring you the RPA & Artificial Intelligence BFSI World Summit from the 10th-12th July 2017 in London, UK, to provide a true peer to peer platform with a precision focus on practical and specific challenges for the BFSI industry https://goo.gl/jOnjNw

CxOs from Banking, Financial Services & Insurance are no longer discussing whether or not to implement RPA and AI programmes. They are now laser focused on the “big how to”. Transformation in back office operations and effortless customer interactions at the front end through RPA and AI is now the new normal.

The race is on - we will never walk alone: Machine intelligence and automation is here to stay! Yet even the most advanced in the journey are far from mastering this dance with the machines.

What’s next? • RPA vs. AI: Is there a single direction for your intelligent automation plans?
• Cracking AI: How much business value can you achieve with the cognitive world?
• Roadmap mastery: How to resolve the complexity when scaling up from less than 10 processes to a regional and global roll out

Adding to the core questions is the perpetual challenge of achieving complete compliance. Zero error tolerance is the nature of the BFSI industry. When examining your strategy, it is not a simple case of improving efficiency, 100% accuracy must be guaranteed.

You’ll learn from real life insights and examples from a groundbreaking speaker panel that will help you to realise the full potential of your robotic and intelligent automation projects, to mature your cognitive capabilities, to scale up your projects to have a significant impact on your business bottom line and to carve out your digital enterprise capabilities and roadmap.
