In today’s fast-paced world of technological innovation, the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) sector finds itself at a crucial juncture. Recently, the “Future Frontiers: Navigating the Intersection of AI and BFSI” webinar provided valuable insights into this transformation, particularly highlighting the role of Generative AI (GenAI) in shaping the future of BFSI across Asia. This summary aims to distill the key takeaways and pivotal moments from the webinar, offering professionals essential guidance for navigating the evolving landscape of BFSI.


Insights from GenAI Experts

SmartDev assembled a panel of distinguished experts, including Dr. Dao Huu Hung, Lang Vinh Tuong, and Geert Theys, who shared their insights on navigating the GenAI landscape. Their expertise provided attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by GenAI in the BFSI sector.


Transitioning from Modern to Generative AI

The webinar began by tracing the evolution of AI, marking the shift from Modern AI, which focuses on understanding the world (circa 2012), to Generative AI, characterized by its ability to produce human-like content (since 2022). Generative AI, exemplified by Large Language Models (LLMs) like ChatGPT, represents a significant advancement in AI’s capabilities to create, reason, and interact in ways previously exclusive to human intelligence.
