Payments companies are focused on fine tuning AI to use it to combat fraud in their card programs, but nobody is talking about the flip side to that adaptive technology – the great risk of being attacked by something smarter than the human mind – weaponized AI. In this case, weaponized AI is not referring to military drones using AI to identify targets, rather autonomous AI systems that land in the hands of rogue hackers with the intention to destroy the financial industry.

Join this two-part session to prepare for what can go wrong, and probably will.

PART 1: Tap into the minds AI author Pedro Domingos, who penned The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World and Clay Wilkes, Galileo Processing' s founder and CEO. These payments and AI visionaries will discuss the real and near-term threats weaponized AI poses to financial institutions and solutions being developed to combat this threat.

PART 2: Join Forter CEO and Co-Founder Michael Reitblat to learn why relying solely on static data is not an effective method of fighting fraud, how to use static data in conjunction with dynamic data like customer behavior, and how to effectively stop your business from being a victim of account takeover.
