AI in the Financial Services Sector
AI has been disrupting every industry and has long since gone from an emerging trend to a pivotal foundational capability. In the coming years, financial service sector executives of all levels will need to understand how AI will impact their business, from understanding where the opportunities are to preemptively mitigating the well-known challenges impeding AI adoption and execution. This talk will begin by taking a quick look back in history to see how Canada's academic AI bench strength came to be and what advantages lie in the financial services sector. From there, it will outline key strategic machine learning opportunities before getting into the nitty-gritty impediments to execution that need to be overcome.
After completing a number of advance biomedical and mechanical engineering degrees, Paige decided to begin her career in management consulting. Working for McKinsey, she supported a number of multi-national financial institutions across a range of topics, from data strategies, to digital transformation, and even standing on multi-million dollar innovation centers. She's since accrued more than 10 granted patents (+13 pending) and continues to explore her various entrepreneurial endeavours, with the latest focused on clean river-run energy generation technologies.
Most recently, Paige left the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence, where she led several nation-wide engagements with Canada's largest financial institutions, consulting companies, regulators, and government agencies, to join TD's very own Layer 6 AI. At Layer 6, Paige is globally responsible for the end-to-end lifecycle of all Layer 6 use-cases across the bank.
