Finally, Fabien Legland, Head of Project Management & Innovation and Tanguy Hubert, In-House Counsel at Credit Agricole CIB Americas came up with one of their AI use-case from the legal department and talk about their approach to participative innovation.
This example stressed how AI can have truly positive impact on the people activities in the bank : the tool developed removes repetitive and monotonous tasks, therefore lawyers can focus on more rewarding and higher-value activities.

To bring innovation to the bank, Credit Agricole can rely on its incubator Le Village by CA, an ecosystem where startups and large groups cooperate to innovate together.

The use-case presented by Quanteam clients revealed some of the huge benefits that data science and AI can bring to the banking business.
Accumulating and analyzing useful data, banks can for instance enhance the customer experience, prevent fraud or simplify their process.

To succeed and reach efficiency, banks need to be ready for change : approach to their people, their processes and their data.

It was a great opportunity for Quanteam North America to gather some future talents and banking leaders around very concrete AI initiatives currently running in this industry.
