AI's Future Impact on Treasury Functions


Date 10:15 AM - 11:05 AM (0 hours 50 minutes)
Tuesday, April 18
Practical Strategies

The treasury function is often filled with repetitive tasks that prevent professionals from focusing on more strategic objectives. Fortunately, financial institutions (FIs) are riding to the rescue by leveraging innovative technology to take over burdensome processes, transforming product teams into in-house FinTechs, and harnessing an incredibly deep dataset around payment processing to train artificial intelligence algorithms. Speakers in this session examine how FIs are working with clients to co-design intelligent workflow solutions, such as an artificial intelligence (AI)-based cash-flow forecasting solution. Our panel of experts will explore how such advancements rapidly move the industry toward a “self-driving” treasury function. This session will examine how a fully-trained AI will be empowered to take over basic tasks for treasurers,  offering recommendations for process improvements. In this bionic world, the AI will spot patterns invisible to the human eye, bringing attention to critical issues, so humans can focus on what they do best—finding creative solutions to complex problems.
