Wolters Kluwer and Chartis Research to Explore Benefits of Artificial Intelligence for Managing Regulatory Change

Sponsored by Businesswire

Experts from Wolters Kluwer’s Compliance
Program Management
(CPM) business and Chartis
will discuss ways in which financial services firms can tap
the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to more effectively manage
their regulatory
obligations in a webinar, “Leveraging AI for Regulatory
Change,” on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 from 10-11 a.m. EDT.

AI’s ability to process large amounts of data and contribute to
organizations’ data management and analysis capabilities is well
documented, but financial firms must be cognizant that these
technologies by themselves do not guarantee a sound regulatory
management program. The webinar will look at what can and cannot be
achieved in this space using AI, how human experts are critical to the regulatory
management process, and what this means to financial services

“Dealing with regulatory change has long been a huge challenge for
financial services firms in identifying constantly evolving laws and
regulations with which they must comply wherever they do business, and

applied in the right manner,” notes Sidhartha Dash, Research Director
for Chartis Research. “AI is best thought of as a cog in an analytical
machine, rather than the machine itself. Many of the problems that arise
in tapping AI to address the growing demands in data management aren’t
about the analytics themselves, but the question being asked. Sometimes
the issue is just too hard or complex for analytics alone, so the
framing of the questions posed is vital for effective employment of AI

The webinar will present an overview of the current market for AI
applications in financial services, explore Wolters Kluwer’s approach
through several case studies in helping clients manage regulatory change
using AI, and look at the opportunities and longer-term implications of
AI in financial services. Mike MacDonagh, Wolters Kluwer Global Content
& Strategy Lead, will moderate a panel conversation with:

  • Rajiv Arora, Operations Decision Science Director, Wolters Kluwer
  • SK Karanam, U.S. Market Manager, Wolters Kluwer
  • Sidhartha Dash, Research Director, Chartis Research
