Building on the work of the Artificial Intelligence Public Private Forum, convened by the Bank of England and the FCA, the Regulation and Risk Management of AI in Financial Services Summit will focus on how best to adapt regulation and best practice risk management to facilitate increased use of AI in financial services, with specific reference to model risk management, data protection and standards, strategic boardroom issues, governance, ethics and the role of senior management.

We are delighted that Chris Philp MP, Minister for Digital Infrastructure, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, has agreed to give the opening keynote address at the summit.

AI and machine learning are already having a significant impact on all areas of society and that impact is set to grow exponentially over the coming years. In the UK, the government has published its AI Strategy and launched the Office of AI and the AI Council, which, together with the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation and the UK Information Commissioner’s Office, have been advising government on implementation of its strategy.

AI adoption in the financial sector is growing rapidly. However, there are concerns that AI could exacerbate certain risks and that the current regulatory framework may not be adequate for managing them. For instance, AI raises ethical and regulatory questions about the harm that could be caused through unintentional failures and the need to check that existing regulatory regimes effectively cover developing practices. As a result, AI-based systems are increasingly attracting the attention of regulators. The range of concerns includes accountability, safety, unfair algorithms, bias in data, and the application of models that are not appropriate to the business context – as well as ensuring that the use of models provides value to customers.

This important summit brings together an exceptional panel of speakers to address all the regulatory and risk management issues surrounding the use of AI in the financial services industry.

Who should attend?
• Senior management of banks, asset managers and insurers, including Chief Risk Officers (CROs), Chief Compliance Officers (CCOs), General Counsel (GCs) and Chief Technology Officers (CTOs)
The advisory community, including law firms, AI solutions providers, strategy consultants and risk management advisory firms
