We have attended Bank AI 2018, where many of the largest banks in the United States attend and share experiences. Our CEO, Mr. Burak Arik went up on the stage and talked about our grandparent company Isbank’s work and studies on Artificial Intelligence. We received a very positive feedback on this talk, and we have a very high opinion of Bank AI and the attendees so naturally we wanted to share our experience.
We had the chance to attend the latest BootstrapLabs Applied AI Insider event held at the Google Launchpad Space. It was a very compact event with a focus on AI usage in Cybersecurity, as the name suggests. The event was held in 3 sections, the first being the Cisco on Network-Based Security, which explored the possibility of Network Segmentation as a security measure. Then we moved on to the Department of Homeland Security’s presentation on AI and Cybersecurity and how does the government approach the issue. Finally, we closed the event with Respond Software’s very valuable work on utilization of Probability Theory and Applied Statistics on Cyber Security. Lets briefly talk about each section and why it is essential as the AI steadily makes its way deeper into our everyday lives.

It was an intense yet fruitful 3 days exploring the current trends in AI, Fintech, Blockchain, HealthTech, AR/VR and IoT.
In Europe and the UK its all about competition, therefore they are already on top of the Open Banking aspect. Banks, in general, need to become more open. Protectionism will result in your bank to shut others off and they will build the future around you anyway. You’ll be missing out on the opportunity. The biggest challenge in the US is ensuring the security of the data while it’s flowing openly in the environment. As an end result, we’re expecting to see more, better and newer products…
There were several exciting panels in SaaStr 2018, we believe even established companies can benefit from these insights and we have gathered our notes on the ones we have attended. The conference was mostly focused on revenue generation, growth and scaling under the SaaS model and the challenges that come with this territory. The speakers were usually representatives of the companies who have achieved these in difficult market spaces.
