Generative AI is a prominent topic of discussion, drawing major interest and attention worldwide. Executives everywhere are asking their staff how they plan to use it in their own companies in a cost-effective way. Generative AI promises to revolutionize industries, transform content generation, provide personalized user experiences, and enable automation and efficiency. Yet, although it holds great promise, it also raises numerous governance and ethical concerns, especially in highly regulated industries such as financial services.
That is why a well-planned generative AI strategy is critical. Given the range of complexity a generative AI implementation can require, your strategy will need to address what use cases should be deployed and how to implement them in phases. You will need to address technology considerations—such as whether to use commercial or open-source foundation models or to build your own. Your strategy will need to support scalability requirements with the right platform. Finally, the right security and governance must be in place for data quality and lineage as well as to ensure data privacy.
Join this panel discussion with experts from Snowflake to discuss topics including:
- Pillars for an effective generative AI strategy for financial services
- Building a scalable architecture for generative AI
- Putting governance and security in place for generative AI
- Key use cases where generative AI can have the biggest impact
