Demystifying AI & RPA Technologies for the Indian BFSI & NBFC Sectors
Friday, 13 September 2019(Mumbai): The BFSI sector seems to be raring to go on the AI and automation front, harnessing the maximum advantage of market opportunities. Indian banks such as State Bank of India (SBI) and Bank of Baroda are already betting big on AI. Speaking of the Indian NBFC sector that has been facing a rough stretch due to the recent liquidity crises, India’s shadow banks are seeing a sign of silver lining by revamping their lending processes through state-of-the-art technologies such as AI, Analytics, ML and Automation. Everything from algorithms for alternate credit scores, fraud detection and customer on-boarding, the tech driven NBFC industry has the potential for huge business growth in India. However, being the IT capital of South Asia and a leader in producing IT infrastructure and manpower, where does India stand as a potential contender in the race for AI and RPA leadership among top countries like South Korea, the United States, Germany, Singapore and Japan?
“We are headed into the post-digital era which is creating a whole new market entirely. It has become imperative to keep pace with emerging technologies like AI and RPA that are changing the face of modern businesses. AI-powered applications will help create value by augmenting business processes, especially in the banking sector where customer-centricity is central”, said Sunit Vakharia, CIO of Bank of Baroda Financial Services Limited, who will be sharing more of his views at the upcoming World AI Show (BFSI & NBFC), taking place on 20 September 2019 at the Taj Lands End in Mumbai. The show, organized by international business events and consulting firm Trescon, will facilitate a platform to connect leading experts, technology providers and integrators from the AI space to demonstrate real-world industry use cases, discussions on intelligent automation and adoption challenges of AI & RPA for enterprises and its impact on the BFSI Sector.
