SIMPLICITY Breakfast Series

Artificial Intelligence in Finance

January 2019

Our January SIMPLICITY Breakfast was all about Artificial Intelligence in Finance and the inherent opportunities.

The discussion was hosted by fdu CFO David Bloom, and our guest speaker Christopher Argent led the conversation about using Artificial Intelligence to simplify and speed up forecasting or performance management, drawing on his specialist experience in transformation and change in Finance, Business and IT/BI/Data projects.
