January 16, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 16, 2019--Today, Marstone, Inc., a leading, independent digital wealth management platform, announced its partnership with the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The center, which develops policy frameworks and advance collaborations to accelerate the benefits of science and technology, works across nine focus areas, with Marstone specifically collaborating on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in finance.

“AI has the potential to revolutionize how we understand people’s financial behavior,” said Margaret Hartigan, co-founder and CEO, Marstone. “As the technology improves, it can help us better understand the wants, needs, and biases of individuals, enabling us to make better recommendations and / or provide smarter services to them. At the same time, though, there are risks that regulators need to understand in this emerging space, particularly with regard to data integrity and security. We look forward to working with WEF on crafting sensible policy solutions for the advancements to come.”

Marstone’s enterprise-ready solution enables financial institutions to efficiently and affordably reach, acquire, and retain clients who seek straightforward information and engagement around their finances. Marstone will work with WEF’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution to optimize accountability, transparency, privacy, data integrity, and impartiality as advances in machine learning increase the scope and scale of AI’s deployment in finance.

“The positive impacts of AI and machine learning can be seen across countless industries, and finance is no different. But with these technological advancements come challenges that are particularly detrimental to the industry, especially in regards to data privacy, trust, and biases,” said Murat Sonmez, head of the World Economic Forum Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. “We look forward to tapping Marstone’s expertise in the space to mitigate the challenges and accelerate the benefits of AI and machine learning in finance.”
