Tech Trends To Watch with Areiel Wolanow, MD of Finserv Experts (Bristol, UK)

  • Digital transformation of business and organisational activities.
  • AI & RPA and whether they're really as progressive and innovative as we might think.
  • Tactical advantages.
  • Blockchain.
  • Financial Inclusion.
  • RegTech and other buzzwords - GDPR/AI.
  • The other IOT. Is it "Internet of Things" or "Intelligence of things"?
