With 30 days to go it is still time to register for the BIIA 2019 Biennial Conference

The BIIA 2019 Biennial Conference Opening Keynote will be delivered by Dr. Anthony Scriffignano, SVP/Chief Data Scientist at Dun & Bradstreet

The topic will be on Artificial Intelligence:  Myth vs. Reality – The Challenges of Increased Digitization for the Financial Services Industry, Providers of Trade Credit and the Likely Consequences for Suppliers of Business and Credit Information

Financial decisions have always been informed by data: data about the counterparties in a relationship, the nature of a transaction and historical risk are but a few examples. With the introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and related capabilities, compounded with vastly increasing amounts of data and compute power, virtually all decisions are impacted in curious and sometimes alarming ways. Advances present tremendous opportunities and also give rise to unintended risks such as cybercrime, identity theft, and other malfeasant behavior.

In this session, Dr. Anthony Scriffignano, SVP/Chief Data Scientist at Dun and Bradstreet, will explore how the massive availability of data is changing the questions we must ask in the context of increasing digitization. Modern methods, tools and technologies can be very helpful or, as Dr. Scriffignano puts it, “they can accelerate the speed with which we hit the wall.”  If, however, we ask the right questions (and maybe use a bit of different math!), new sources of data can yield fascinating inferences. This talk, both relevant and occasionally irreverent, will explore some of the new ways data and AI are being used to expose risk and opportunity and the skills leaders need to take advantage of a curious world awash in data.

Following his keynote Dr. Scriffignano will moderate a discussion panel on the impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the Business and Credit Information Industry 

  • Panelist: Professor Dr. Gjergji Kasneci, CTO & Head of Innovation and Strategic Analysis at SCHUFA Holding AG, Germany
  • Panelist: Danny Mu, Principal Analyst Serving CIO Professionals, Forrester Research
  • Panelists:  Timothy Choon, Managing Director FICO Compliance Solutions Asia – Pacific

During the discussion we will hear from experts of how industry players begin to harness AI.  We hear from experts in how AI is beginning to take hold in risk assessment.
