By Dipak Singh July 05, 2023 - 252 views

Digital transformation is the cornerstone of almost every industry today and banking is no exception. Generative AI and machine learning are technological innovations that are fast revamping the entire banking landscape in the recent scenario, redefining automation for financial services, personalisation and customer engagement and overall operations including risk management.

Generative AI is a specialised category of AI (artificial intelligence) which helps in the generation of fresh ideas and content along with pattern-based solutions that are gleaned from pre-existing information.

It is thus suitable for diverse applications throughout the banking sector. It can enable intelligent decision-making along with better risk management, fraud detection, and real-time decisions. Here is a deeper look at the same. 

 How is generative AI used in banking?

Generative AI and machine learning can enable the analysis of huge volumes of data sets and then generate responses accordingly. Trends and patterns can be easily identified and the information leveraged to take informed decisions accordingly. Here are some of the core aspects worth noting in this regard: 

  • Generative AI can keep learning and adapting based on the data sets that are processed. 
  • It can process earlier data and learn from the same to take intelligent decisions, while adapting as per evolving conditions. 
  • Generative AI can examine customer information like transaction histories and then draw patterns/inferences from the same. It can also build personalised solutions for customers. 
  • Chatbots can offer 24-7 service and support, freeing up human resources to focus on more vital tasks. This enhances productivity and boosts customer satisfaction. 
  • Systems may be re-trained for adapting to the introduction of new data or modifications in the same. 
  • Generative AI is more flexible and may be trained on a broader range of data while easily adapting towards changes and new scenarios.
  • It can facilitate better loan-related decision-making, helping banks determine qualified customers for lending in a more efficient manner. It also helps in risk scoring and decision-making regarding the maximum credit limits for customers. It may also evaluate loan pricing based on automated risk assessments. 
  •  Generative AI may help automate the underwriting procedure for loans, which includes analysing the financial data of borrowers to determine their loan eligibility. The costs and time for loan processing naturally go down as a result. 
  • Banks can also personalize marketing campaigns and tailor experiences for customers with generative AI. They can completely streamline data management, consumer communication, controls, claims, and KYC, among other aspects. 
  • Banks can tap generative AI for enhancing interactions across multiple channels with customers. They garner invaluable insights which help them pave the foundations for future growth.

Customer service with generative AI

Customer engagement and service can be radically transformed with the help of generative AI. Here are some points worth noting: 

  • Generative AI helps banks offer customized services through the analysis of consumer behavior and data. This leads to custom recommendations and product/service offerings. 
  • With generative AI, banks can tap consumer insights and intelligence. They can better interpret customer purposes and preferences. 
  • This helps them scale up customer satisfaction through better interactions across platforms. 
  • Generative AI helps advisors by enabling them to offer more personalized and efficient client recommendations. Financial advisors can readily take automated notes and use them after calls to come up with solutions likewise. 
  • Hyper-personalization in marketing content is also possible with the help of generative AI. Customers go on customized journeys, spanning audio, visual, and text channels. 
  • KYC, controls, complaints, interactions, responses, and overall data management are more streamlined. 
  • Banks can respond faster to consumers with the help of generative-AI-enabled Chatbots. They can direct them to solutions while also improving the overall experience with automated loan processing, applications, and credit checks. 

Risk management with generative AI

  • Generative AI-based algorithms can identify patterns throughout huge data sets, including the transaction history and behavior of consumers. This enables it to detect unusual behavior or any anomalies. This helps banks detect fraud or chances of fraud swiftly with timely alerts. 
  • Real-time alerts are generated in bulk to prevent losses due to fraud. 
  • Generative AI may also involve training a discriminator and generator against each other in a special model. The latter churns out data that mimics real-world transactions, while the former tries to find which is synthetic and real. This may enhance fraud detection procedures greatly. 
  • The banking industry can also use generative AI to great effect for tackling data privacy challenges. Shareable data may be generated through the creation of synthetic data. 
  • Machine learning models may be trained with artificial consumer data to help banks undertake better credit or loan checks and take decisions faster. 
  • Generative AI can help create machine learning systems that are trained with sensitive information. They do not reveal the data to the model while enabling error or breach-free systems that do not expose customer information. 
  • Generative AI can also enable masks for sensitive information, enabling sharing of data without major risks. 
  • Differential privacy is also possible with generative AI, enabling more complex datasets that attackers cannot always breach. 
  • Generative AI can help manage portfolios through identifying market patterns, trends, and opportunities, while optimizing allocation. 
  • It can examine credit risks through analyzing financial histories, credit scores, and the like. This enables banks to lower risks by taking more informed decisions. 
  • Generative AI may also simulate diverse situations for identifying potential risks in the future and their possible impact on the bank.

Generative AI will be a huge game-changer and harbinger of digital transformation in the near future. Chatbots and virtual assistants will steadily take over the customer support space with human resources focusing on more crucial duties. Loan processing and other duties will be streamlined and customer experiences will be more personalized and fulfilling.

FAQs

1.How can banks effectively adopt generative AI technologies?

Banks can adopt generative AI technologies for identifying potential frauds, managing risks, predicting future risks, and also automating customer evaluation including credit and financial history checks. Banks can also use these technologies for improving customer service and enabling higher personalization.

2.Are there any challenges or risks associated with implementing generative AI in banking?

There are challenges like data privacy and the need to use synthetic data in the right manner for avoiding breaches and security hassles. Generative AI models may sometimes have higher complexity and interpretation may be tough in some cases. Maintaining transparency and adhering to legal/regulatory mechanisms are other challenges in this regard.

3.How can generative AI help banks make better financial decisions?

Generative AI can enable banks to take better decisions through analyzing customer data and offering insights in real-time. Naturally, banks can take more accurate and informed decisions about sanctioning loans and other customer-facing aspects.

4.Can generative AI replace human bankers in the future?

While generative AI will automate and streamline repetitive tasks in the future and possibly take care of customer communication and support, it will not be a full replacement for human beings. It will help in policy-building, decision-making, fraud detection, risk management, and personalization. However, human bankers will always be required for taking care of more crucial and complex tasks
