Metis's Javed Ahmed On Upcoming Panel at Ai4 Finance Summit
By Metis • February 16, 2021
We're looking forward to hearing Metis Sr. Data Scientist Javed Ahmed speak on a panel at the upcoming Ai4 Finance Summit. On Thursday, March 4th from 2:30 - 3:20 pm ET, he and others will discuss the topic of 21st Century Lending with AI.
Artificial Intelligence has created a whole suite of options for banks to determine who is a qualified borrower. But with tens of millions of Americans currently "unbanked," there is a huge opportunity to use AI to evaluate a borrower beyond the traditional checks of credit scores and outstanding loans. This panel will take a dive into the world of AI for lending to discuss how the field can automate loan decisions for a wider group of borrowers. They'll answer questions about the challenges lenders face when it comes to implementing AI into their processes and go over steps financial institutions can take to ensure machines avoid discrimination in lending.
For all that and more, apply to attend the Ai4 Financial Summit here.
