Level Up Your AI Skillset and Dive Into The Deep End Of TinyML

“One prevalent use of ML on microcontrollers (TinyML) includes wake word detection, which is also known as keyword spotting. For example, if you say “Alexa” or “Hey Siri,” your phone or nearby smart speaker may come to life, waiting for further instructions. The smart speaker uses two types of machine learning. The first kind is TinyML, where inference is performed locally in the speaker’s microcontroller to listen for that wake word. Once the speaker hears the wake word, it begins streaming the subsequent audio to an internet-connected server, which performs a much more complex machine learning process known as natural language processing (NLP) to figure out what you’re asking.”

Why Consumers Aren’t Banking Like It’s Still 2019

  • “Doug Brown, president of digital banking at NCR, told Karen Webster in an interview that banking in the branch is not what it was — but what it will be will borrow liberally from the great digital shift.
  • And in revamping in-person banking, he told Webster, smart automation can improve the experience for credit unions’ consumers. Machine learning and artificial intelligence can boost revenues and reduce costs.
  • About 15% of the population, he said, came into the proverbial fold and embraced digital banking — and they haven’t gone away.
  • Combining Video, Audio and Virtual Assistants. The combination of visual and audio, AI and algorithms, said Brown, mean that banking is getting smarter. And high tech, he said, can improve trust and confidence amid “surge activity,” such as during periods of high economic stress or when, for example, a customer has forgotten a password or has been the victim of fraud.”


Banking Circle CIO: ‘AI can spot red flags that humans never could’

  • “Utilising AI and machine learning will influence an array of factors, from how we onboard clients to enhancing transaction monitoring. Though the fintech industry received record high investment levels last year, simultaneously 2021 was the year anti-money laundering fines rocketed.
  • With this in mind, I urge governments and regulators alike to prioritise digital transformations and adopt AI and machine learning to prevent fraudulent activity slipping through the cracks. These technologies will pave the way for disrupting the security landscape for good in the fight against financial crime.
  • What’s exciting about AI and machine learning is they can spot red flags which we as humans never could, greatly reducing the margin of error. With these tools, Banking Circle’s platform ensures vigilant security measures and insights when it comes to transaction monitoring.”
