How Finance Leaders Use Machine Learning to Mitigate Risks and Inform Decisions - Argyle Executive Forum Events


As finance executives take on increasing responsibility for preparing their companies for the future, they are recognizing how automation, and machine learning in particular, can accelerate the pace at which their companies make significant decisions.

Machine learning enables companies to quickly identify trends and patterns concerning structured data, including data that resides in a company’s financial reporting system, as well as unstructured information, such as conversations or e-mail correspondence with customers. By factoring in external sources of information, a finance team can use machine learning to reveal influences, including the effects of the pandemic and weather conditions, on a company’s performance. By combining machine learning with predictive analytics, a finance team can create visual models of scenarios to inform decisions about how a company should allocate its resources and respond to risks.

During this webinar, we will discuss:

  • What machine learning is, and why it is becoming increasingly valuable in the realm of finance;
  • How companies can use unstructured data alongside financial data to inform their plans and decisions;
  • Best practices for applying machine learning not only to support decisions but also to identify and mitigate risks; and
  • What skills finance teams will need to develop in order to enable their companies to take advantage of the latest advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
