AI Governance in Financial Services

25 October @ 14h00 - 18h00

About this Event

Join us for a panel discussion and a networking cocktail around AI Governance in financial services, presented by Fin-ML and IVADO. The deployment of AI models in financial services pose an array of challenging and interesting questions, particularly around compliance and ethical matters – for instance regarding model explainability, prevention of unfair bias, as well as algorithmic accountability and human-in-the-loop. The objective of the panels is to both discuss AI Governance in a holistic way, as the questions it poses are all interrelated, and to hone in on some of the particularly pressing issues. To ensure a meaningful dialogue, panelists will be from various backgrounds, jurists and scientists, from the industry, the regulators, and academia.
