Forum Session
AI, financial services and smart cities: harnessing technology for human good
Wednesday, September 11, 2019, 9:15 AM - 10:30 AM, Room 4 - Helicopter

Technological developments in artificial intelligence, digital financial services and smart cities have enormous potential to transform our societies and the world in general, enabling solutions, applications and new markets to a far greater extent than human capability alone. New regulatory approaches or a new kind of global framework may be necessary, however, to ensure these new technologies are put to work for the benefit of humankind.

How can we regulate the decisions, actions and impact of technology for social good, and who should be responsible? How should we manage the ownership, exploitation and implementation of new types of datasets generated by digital financial services? Can AI empower financial services and smart cities, providing better data to improve performance? And can we balance human and machine input and initiatives to ensure optimal, secure and trusted customer service?

This session is part of the Smart ABC programme at ITU Telecom World 2019.
