Financial Evolution: AI, Machine Learning & Sentiment Analysis @ Malta

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI & ML) and Sentiment Analysis are said to “predict the future through analysing the past” – the Holy Grail of the finance sector. They can replicate cognitive decisions made by humans yet avoid the behavioural biases inherent in humans.

Processing news data and social media data and classifying (market) sentiment and how it impacts Financial Markets is a growing area of research. The field has recently progressed further with many new “alternative” data sources, such as email receipts, credit/debit card transactions, weather, geo-location, satellite data, Twitter, Micro-blogs and search engine results. AI & ML are gaining adoption in the financial services industry especially in the context of compliance, investment decisions and risk management.

This is a sophisticated conference that not only interrogates and explores the implications of AI & ML in the financial services industry but also goes on to identify the investment opportunities of sharing knowledge and exploiting IP in the finance domain.

Consumers expect to pay for and receive their purchases as fast as possible- 24/7*365 days. Merchants on the other hand, expect to have the certainty to be paid as soon as they release their goods and services, enhance their cash flow management, reduce fraud activity and provide incremental value to their customers. Regulators and central authorities are also aiming to modernize legacy payments infrastructure, promote digitization of the economy, through Real-Time Payments.

In 2016, we at Kinfos Events identified that there was a growing on Real-Time Payments and in 2017, we launched word’s first focused conference series of Instant Payments in Europe, and later in the United States as Real-Time Payments.

As Real-Time Payments gained more momentum in Australia after the launch of NPP, we hosted the Real-Time Payments in Sydney for the first time in 2018. We are proud to announce the 2nd Annual of the Sydney conference after the success of our previous event.

Join this ‘one of a kind’ event to meet all the key stakeholders as well as obtain latest insights on Real-Time Payments, latest updates from NPP, business cases, strategies, implications, challenges and current payments landscape and deployments. We invite you to join this unique summit.

See you in Sydney!

TechNova Connected Customer 2019 @ The Crystal, London
Jun 20 all-day

In the midst of the customer-centric revolution, industries are being fundamentally disrupted.

At Connected Customer 2019, we’ve ripped up the rule book on what customer conferences should be. When Amazon revolutionised e-commerce, they were thinking about the next thirty years of business, not tomorrow’s problems – so why should you?

We’ve built an agenda with these same change-makers who’ve disrupted their industries, and the organisations who’ve forged new paths in struggling sectors. While we’re putting the finishing touches to this year’s line-up, check out our preview brochure and see some of what’s in store.

Financial Evolution: AI, Machine Learning & Sentiment Analysis @ London, United Kingdom

Financial Evolution: AI, Machine Learning & Sentiment Analysis @ London, United Kingdom

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI & ML) and Sentiment Analysis are said to “predict the future through analysing the past” – the Holy Grail of the finance sector. They can replicate cognitive decisions made by humans yet avoid the behavioural biases inherent in humans.

Processing news data and social media data and classifying (market) sentiment and how it impacts Financial Markets is a growing area of research. The field has recently progressed further with many new “alternative” data sources, such as email receipts, credit/debit card transactions, weather, geo-location, satellite data, Twitter, Micro-blogs and search engine results. AI & ML are gaining adoption in the financial services industry especially in the context of compliance, investment decisions and risk management.

This is a sophisticated conference that not only interrogates and explores the implications of AI & ML in the financial services industry but also goes on to identify the investment opportunities of sharing knowledge and exploiting IP in the finance domain.

Digital Banking Summit 2019 @ Accra, Ghana
Aug 19 – Aug 20 all-day
Digital Banking Summit 2019 @ Accra, Ghana
For banks in Ghana, many payments are transacted through mobile apps controlled by online-payments specialists and digital merchants. Payments represent the foothold for the entire banking relationship, and this base is under attack. Offering a strong Payment- Plan as part of a holistic strategy for digital banking is therefore an imperative for banks.
But to compete in this emerging arena, banks must meet the expectations of digital natives, delivering diverse tools to help customers make smart decisions across a range of financial services. They should begin by capturing their customers’ most frequent transactions with the new mobile channel and then proceed toward a fully digital relationship.
The banking industry’s efforts to shift to digital channels have been staggered, at best. Given the industry’s financial pressures and global economic uncertainties, there is increased urgency — and opportunity — to adopt an all-inclusive approach to going digital and integrating that strategy across the banking ecosystem. Embracing a fully digital strategy requires end-to-end modernization of a bank’s infrastructure. Equally important, it requires a transition from an account-based view of banking customers to one that knows them as individuals and enhances the customer experience with relevant, convenient and personalized products and service.

Europe ATMs & Payments Innovation Summit @ Sheraton Roma Hotel & Conference Center
Oct 15 – Oct 17 all-day
Europe ATMs & Payments Innovation Summit @ Sheraton Roma Hotel & Conference Center

Last year, ATMIA Europe embarked on an epic journey that will take the continent’s only truly international ATM & Payments event around the major capitals of Europe.  Magnificent Madrid was our first port of call, where over 400 ATM and payments professionals enjoyed workshops and presentations which went to the heart of the crucial innovations that can see our industry make startling progress in the decade ahead.

The next stage of our journey takes us to Resplendent Rome, sitting astride its seven beautiful hills, the birthplace of arguably the most powerful Empire our planet has ever seen.

However, to paraphrase Marc Anthony, we come to Rome not to praise Caesar, but to highlight the innovations from Italy, from Europe as a whole, and, indeed, from around the globe; innovations that will redefine the future of ATMs, cash and payments in general.

WHY ATTEND?  Our aim in Rome is to provide a Forum – and there can surely be no city where a Forum is more appropriate – for education, shared learning and networking. No one attending is expected to simply listen and applaud. There will be genuine opportunities for everyone to both ask questions and have their say. We recognise that ALL those attending are industry professionals, with something of real value to add to the proceedings. They will have the chance to do so, if they choose.   Visit the Europe ATM & Payments Innovation Summit website to read more about the Workshops, main conference programme and exhibition.

Rome was founded in 700 BC, around the time that cash first appeared. Both the Roman Empire and cash changed the world forever. Both Rome and cash are still alive and well today, ready to meet the challenges and opportunities of the future. In the great traditions of Roman construction, the Europe ATM & Payments Innovation Summit will help build the road towards that future, a road that can be a smooth and profitable trail for our industry, in the next decade and beyond.
