About the White Paper

This 40-page white paper takes a deep dive into:


  • Defining what it actually means to leverage AI in banking.
  • Uncovering the top challenges to AI adoption in the sector (and how to address them).
  • Use cases for AI in banking (and how to choose where to start).
  • Success stories from financial institutions who are already leveraging AI.
  • Taking a look at the top initiatives banks can begin now in order to get started in AI.
  • Recommended organizational structure(s) for enabling AI.

Ultimately, AI for banks means turning data from the cost center it is today in to a revenue stream - a source of efficiency and a wealth of information that can be used to provide fundamental value to the business. This white paper aims to put financial institutions on the path to realizing that potential.

Extract: Model Risk Management (MRM) and Validation

In a topic intrinsically intertwined with regulatory requirements, the struggle between velocity and proper processes for model risk validation can be debilitating for the progress of AI initiatives. Of course, the challenge is a complex one because mitigating risk is the top priority, which means that it cannot be sped up in a way that compromises the quality of the validation itself.

But there are still improvements that can be made and ways to address this challenge; namely by introducing consistency and reproducibility into the process both of validations and the final pushes to production.

For example, it is often the case that the model risk validation team(s) look at models from different organizations or groups across the company, each of whom have their own individual processes and send the models in different formats, containing different information, etc.

That means for each review, the model risk validation team loses time in trying to get their bearings and figure out what it is that they’re looking at. Similarly, without a consistent system or process by which models are delivered, the next step (deployment to production) also becomes complicated and time consuming.

Make AI in Banking a Reality

New technology gives banks the power to collect, store, and analyze exponentially more information than was imaginable not too long ago. Yet most struggle amidst complexities of the data itself, regulations, and more, to get AI initiatives off the ground. But they don’t have to.
