Artificial Intelligence for Microfinance #DigLitBootcamp

6 October 2020

Having introduced the AI landscape in the previous webinar (September 15th), in this webinar we are focusing on applying AI in Microfinance. We will dive into two cases of financial institutions. The first case covers the use of data in physical documents for further digitization and analysis. Especially in a world where paperwork and document control plays an important role, is the technology to bring that information into the digital world essential to be able to move on and digitize operations overall. The second case focuses on fraud prevention around payments and transactions, as well as customer behaviour analysis for a portfolio quality.
