Innovations Factories for AI in Financial Services with Thierry Derungs

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

This week on the podcast we’re running a series of shows consisting of conversations with some of the impressive speakers from an event called the AI Summit in New York City. The theme of the conference, and the series, is AI in the Enterprise, and I think you’ll find it really interesting in that it includes a mix of both technical and case-study-oriented discussions. Today’s show continues our discussion of enterprise AI, with a conversation with Thierry Derungs, Chief Digital Officer at BNP Paribas, a multinational bank headquartered in Paris.

Thierry joined me to discuss how BNP uses AI and some of the opportunities that have arisen with the changing AI landscape. We also discuss the innovation process that BNP has used to introduce AI to the bank, via what they call innovation incubators or “factories”. The notes for this show can be found at
