Union of Arab Banks Partners with CBB and BAB to Host “AI-Driven Banking Services” Workshop

The Union of Arab Banks hosted a three-day workshop titled “AI-Enhanced Banking: Unleashing the Power of Data,” in collaboration with the Bahrain Association of Banks (BAB) and the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB). The event saw the participation of numerous employees from Bahraini banks and financial institutions.

The workshop delved into the practical applications of AI within the banking and financial services industry. It explored how modern AI technologies, including financial data analysis, risk forecasting, and banking robotics, can enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of banking operations.

On the first day, attendees were introduced to AI in banking services, machine learning techniques, and various applications such as directed, unguided, and augmented learning within the banking sector. Discussions also encompassed generative artificial intelligence and addressed the risks and challenges associated with “chat GPT.”

The second day focused on financial data processing and its correlation with AI, as well as predictive analytics in banking services.

On the final day of the workshop, participants explored advanced AI topics, particularly focusing on deep learning and its tailored applications within the banking sector. Moreover, conversations centered around forecasting the future trajectory of AI within banking services. Interactive training sessions, guided by experts in both artificial intelligence and banking, remained a consistent feature throughout the workshop, ensuring active engagement and knowledge transfer among attendees.

Dr. Waheed Al Qassim, CEO of Bahrain Association of Banks, commented: ” In this dynamic era, we are witnessing an unprecedented surge in the field of AI and machine learning, permeating every facet of academia, medicine, industry, finance, and beyond. Embracing the significance of this transformative wave, the workshop is poised to seize this momentous opportunity. Our dedication lies in aligning with this swift evolution, concentrating specifically on the crucial domain of artificial intelligence.”

 “Recognizing its pivotal role in shaping the landscape of the forthcoming millennium, our aim is nothing short of harnessing the boundless potential of AI to catalyze a paradigm shift in banking operations within the Kingdom of Bahrain. Through this concerted effort, we aim to propel the banking sector to new heights, delivering unmatched experiences and driving innovation to unprecedented levels.”
