The Economics of AI for Financial Inclusion

Thursday, January 28, 2021

With Artificial Intelligence (AI) often looked at through its most mind-blowing aspects such as self-driving cars, processing natural languages or facial recognition, entire industries are still trying to figure out exactly what to do with it, or if it even makes sense to them at all.

Microfinance assuredly fits in that category, with the extra challenge of not losing sight of its social mission along its digital way. This EaSI Technical Assistance webinar will quickly dismiss the hype and the magic surrounding AI to show it for what is is: the availability of very cheap calculations and data treatment opening a trove of new possibilities. The webinar will then focus on the real topic at hand: the economics of AI for financial inclusion, in other words how to use data and AI to supercharge microfinance institutions, deliver better products, and deeper outreach.
