Potential & Perils of AI in Banking

-By Pranav Kansara, Sr. Director Analytics & Insights, TCS

In the post-covid world, consumer behavior and preferences have undergone a sea change. Hence, it is imperative that the business units within the banks – retail, cards, commercial, mortgages, auto, wealth etc – are able to reimagine their business processes by making them AI-centric with human-in-loop decision making. Thus, they need to understand the potential AI & ML presents to truly transform consumer experience, while avoiding the perils of AI-centric decisions becoming opaque. For this to happen, the data scientist community responsible for creating these models need to cultivate both trust in and acceptance of their AI models for them to see the light of the day. This trust and acceptance in turn depends on confidence the LoB has on the data quality, processes to create and deploy the models, explainability of the models, security of the models and governance of the models, each of which could become single-point-of-failure for the organization if the models are implemented without giving due consideration to them.
