Easy and convenient access to financial services is becoming more important as more of us expect to be able to bank with our smartphones.

How are traditional banks reacting to consumer trends towards financial technology (FinTech), why it is important for FinTech providers to rely on traditional banks, and what role can big data play?

Various tools and solutions are emerging to help banks and other financial institutions join the growing trend towards FinTech, to support their existing customers better and make their operations more efficient. In this lecture, Anna Krause will explain some solutions, the FinBot platform in particular, and why open source remains a priority for widespread transparency.
