Intelligence 2.0: Where Artificial Gets Real

There are days when we’d prefer for someone else to do the thinking for us – and these days, that wish is not so far-fetched!

We’re excited to share our most recent whitepaper titled “The reality behind Artificial Intelligence” authored by Technology Risk Control Manager Tushar Nandwana. In this paper, Tushar explains the various forms of AI and how they function, describes several examples of AI and offers a view of risks and concerns.
