AI for Intelligent Financial Services: Examples and Discussion

The Ken Kennedy Institute, the MIT Enterprise Forum of Texas, and the Jones Graduate School of Business invite you to attend this program to learn how Artificial Intelligence can be used and is being used in Financial Services. 

After more than 30 years in academia researching in the area of AI, as a student and as a faculty, Dr. Veloso joined JP Morgan Chase to create and head an AI research group. In this talk, she will present several concrete examples of the projects that JP Morgan Chase is pursuing to engage with several lines of business. She will focus on areas related to data, learning from experience, explainability, and ethics. Manuela will conclude with a discussion of her current understanding of the transformational impact that AI can have in the future of financial services.

Dr. Manuela M. Veloso, Managing Director and Head, J.P.Morgan AI Research, and Herbert A. Simon University Professor, Carnegie Mellon University (on leave)
