Welcome to the second episode of The Shape of Money, a podcast by ieDigital. Last week was, of course, Money2020 Europe, one of the industry’s biggest and most popular events. As co-sponsors of the event, ieDigital travelled to Amsterdam to soak up the atmosphere, network with some of the sector’s most influential companies, and to talk about the hot topics. Chief among them were payments, security, commercial models, open banking and artificial intelligence. Abbie Crome will talk to Louise Beaumont about AI and Signoi.
We’ll also talk to digital transformation consultant Andrew Garner about building societies and investing in technology. And Clayton Locke will talk about his recent article on the ieDigital blog about AI and the digital dealership.
