Financial Technology (FinTech) is traditionally conservative, but has been using machine learning for some time. The industry is now on the verge of a technology explosion, as AI and blockchain create unique challenges across this sector. AI can provide advantages in risk analysis, fraud detection and in marketing, as well as in predicting market behaviour. Every area of finance has specific interests and risks in moving forward with these projects, from ML-driven hedge funds with limited transparency to credit profiling with potential regulatory issues.
