Get Ready for Sibos 2017 with Intel

Sibos 2017 launches next week in Toronto and Intel is excited to participate in this global industry event for the fourth year. Sibos has been a great venue to help us understand the key challenges and dynamics impacting the industry (see Sibos 2016 Insights).

The theme at Sibos this year is “Building for the Future.” Intel is working with the industry to optimize how data and next-generation computing will transform the way financial services are delivered in the future. Here are a few things to look for in 2017!

Sibos 2017—Not to be missed

At Sibos next week, mark your schedule to take in the Toronto skyline at Intel and Finextra’s twilight reception with industry experts and influencers on Wednesday, October 18, 6:00–8:30 p.m. at the Globe & Mail Centre on King Street East. (RSVP requested.)

We will also be partnering with Red Hat for a brewery tour on Tuesday, October 17, at 5:30 p.m. and with SAP for an exclusive roundtable dinner at One King West Hotel at 6:30 p.m.

Intel and the financial industry

Intel is a data company providing foundational and open technology powering more secure cloud, analytics, and AI platforms for business. Intel technology is a critical enabler of transformation, and our goal is to become a technology partner for the financial services industry. With an expanding portfolio of data center technologies delivered through a broad FSI solutions ecosystem, Intel offers world-class platforms that enable performance, security, and agility for your business to maximize new opportunities in the digital era with trusted, agile and data-driven banking and insurance services and operations.

Today, we are just scratching the surface of AI. As a technology leader invested in the growth of AI, Intel is committed to fueling the proliferation of ever more intelligent, robust, collaborative, and responsible AI solutions. This week, we introduced the Intel Saffron AML Advisor, which uses explainable Associate Memory AI to accelerate the path to a decision for investigators and analysts. Banks often must pay non-compliance fines in the billions due to human error or missed deadlines (fighting money laundering is a key challenge that has led to $361 billion in fines over the last ten years). Intel Saffron AML Advisor explains the rationale behind the recommendations to help banks meet compliance, mitigating fines and countless hours reworking reports.
