The rise of digital first banks has changed customer expectations. The traditional and complex banking model is under threat, yet complexities in the system are increasing rapidly. Artificial intelligence (AI) and Robotics can be the answer to stay competitive in this cutthroat environment. Across the world, Financial Services firms are waking up to the possibilities AI and Robotics can bring to their business.
Robotics has already found its way into a bank’s daily operations, not only realizing operational cost reductions but also increasing employees’ job satisfaction by spending more time on value adding activities. Moreover, banks are increasingly using AI to develop better products and services with reduced error rates, deliver personalized services to individual customers, and conduct real-time sentiment analysis. Think about selfie-payments, robo-advisors/virtual assistants, and open banking platforms that reshape the way we live our daily lives.
Accenture offers you the possibility to experience this new revolution from the front row. You are expected to write a master thesis based on scientific research into the related concepts, application and value of AI/Robotics initiatives in the Dutch banking industry.
