Always early adopters of emerging technologies, companies in the financial services industry are rapidly embracing Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

And the benefits are obvious: research analyst Autonomous estimate the savings across front, middle and back offices to be 20% and the total global impact of AI and ML to be over $1 trillion. Crunchbase lists almost 9,000 ML startups, and almost $10 billion was invested in AI startups in 2018 according to PwC.

PowerUP LONDON Winter 2019, part of the Asset Finance International event on 12 December, is focusing on how machine learning and AI are driving change in auto and equipment finance.
