From the launch at TechNation to another opportunity to join Datactics – Weekly Round-Up

round up

TechNation FinTech launch! 

On Tuesday the TechNation FinTech 3.0 launch took place online. We were very much looking forward to this kick-off, as it would allow us to meet the other members of the cohort, and give us an opportunity to hear from some heavyweights in both the banking and payments sector. 

One of the highlights of the launch was Christian Faes, Co-Founder/Exec Chair LendInvest speaking. When he was asked what he would do if could go back and do it all again, he answered that he “…would run quicker!”. As we embrace all the opportunities, synergies, collaboration and engagement that will come with being a part of Fintech 3.0, we’re going to stick true to these words of encouragement. 

Oh, and we also very much enjoyed our Tech Nation selection box we received prior to the event (sugar rush – check!

Dr. Fiona Browne is a member of the AI Public-Private Forum

Last week we shared across our social channels the news that our Head of AI, Dr Fiona Browne is set to contribute to the Artificial Intelligence Public-Private Forum.

AI Public-Private Forum

She will join 20 other expert speakers across the financial technology sectors as well as academia, along with the observers from the Information Commissioner’s Office and the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation. 

“I’m really excited and honoured to be part of such a timely forum. AI and ML services touch our everyday lives ,from recommending what we watch to the groceries that we buy.” 

Dr. Fiona Browne, Head of AI at Datactics

“Within financial services, ML can offer efficiency benefits reducing manual time-consuming tasks, to saving customers money in suggesting best financial products to bespoke customer service solutions and fraud detection. These solutions need to sit within a legal and regulatory environment in the financial sector and are not without their risks and challenges.” 

Our press release covers more detail surrounding the purpose of the forum. It also includes a few quotes from the Deputy Governor for Markets and Banking at the Bank of England, David Ramsden.  We look forward to it and will provide you with more information in the following weeks, but if you want to read more information about the forum, read here

CTO Vision

This week we reshared two notable blogs that are part of our CTO Vision series authored by Alex Brown

Alex Brown, CTO

Firstly, we began by sharing ‘No code, lo code: a lighter way to enjoy tech?’. This piece helped answer the question ‘What is the biggest data quality issue you face?’  

The second piece was entitled, ‘The three pillars of production AI’. Many projects fail to make the crucial transition from experiment to production – buy why? Alex delves into the reasons in this blog and concludes by offering 3 critical features that your AI system will need. 

We are still hiring!
