Helps in FinTech documentation, verification, and approval
"Definitely, FinTech will be part of this anticipated huge growth of the industry starting this 2022. I am quite optimistic about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) getting further along, especially in the Fintech and Digital Payments industry. With ML, for example, there is a huge potential in sifting through large amounts of data by using algorithms to hasten the process of approving loans, financing access, digital payments, and accounts documentation. As an AI-powered technology, ML is expected to help the consumer banking industry to make quick decisions in allowing people to have access to several financial products and services.
With the mainstreaming of AI services, the winners of this technology will be both the banking industry and financial institutions as well as its consumers because AI will be streamlining the often tedious jobs of documentation, verification, and approval with the use of AI-powered automation tools.
This 2022, AI and ML can help financial institutions like banks in processing unstructured documents to automate operational processes and to increase efficiency and productivity, as well as accumulate invaluable knowledge through data collected from banking consumers. Aside from streamlining the documentation process, AI and ML through Natural Language Processing technology have also been providing ways for banks and financial institutions to automate the often tedious process of checking manual documents and complicated credit compliance processes.
In fact, a wide range of financial services applications today already use AI/ML for everything from fraud detection, lending approvals, and money laundering screening, to risk monitoring and investment predictions. And as AI and ML evolve over time, we can only see a lot of mainstream banks embracing the technology and using it to improve their customer services.
AI-powered startups with the potential to scale up trade and streamline trade finance processes and those that will harness both AI and ML technology in Partnerships with banks will be the biggest winners and are worth looking out for in 2022.
So far, I see a lot of promise to several AI startups that were already tapped by multiple banks availing of AI-powered tools like Intelligent Document Processing platforms which automate operational processes to increase efficiency and productivity in the banking sector. Banks and financial institutions are often burdened by the tedious process of handling big data and processing unstructured documents but with AI there is a chance to automate and speed up operational processes and to increase efficiency and productivity, as well as accumulate invaluable knowledge through data collected from banking consumers"
AML (anti-money laundering) & KYC (know your customer)
"AI and IoT are quickly changing the way we live and work, and that is certainly true in the finance industry. One of the most significant ways that AI is impacting finance is through AML (anti-money laundering) and KYC (know your customer). With AML, you can use machine learning algorithms to detect patterns in financial data which may indicate money laundering activity. This helps to prevent criminals from accessing critical financial information or moving money around undetected. With KYC, a similar process is used to identify customers who may be involved in illegal activities. By doing this, banks can stop potential terrorists or other criminal elements from opening accounts with them, protecting their customers as well as their own business interests. Similarly, IoT can play an important role in helping banks collect data from branches and other locations across the globe. By understanding how people spend their money and what products are being sold, banks can create better marketing campaigns for their products and services."
