Data is the heart of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the most important asset in today’s enterprises. AI will inevitably replace some of the jobs and tasks in the finance industry under the VUCA*Digital Era (VUCA starts for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity). At the same time, AI will also create new jobs and tasks that require human and machine to collaborate. Those who are AI-ready and data-savvy will not only keep their jobs but also have a prosperous career. Unless finance professionals treat data seriously as their new second language of business, they will not be able to deliver the competitive advantage and agility demanded by their enterprises and their clients.
Dr. Charm will share how leading traditional companies, innovative tech companies and start-ups have been making use of data to create values for their customers and how they democratize data mindset and skills (data literacy) to their leaders and employees. He will also explore what roles finance professionals can play in the AI Era.
