Sorry there seems to be a technical issue

 

In a regular series of interviews, we chat to the leading lights of the UK’s Fintech sector, discussing their current businesses and their outlook for the sector as a whole while also delving into their back stories and how they arrived at their current positions.

In this episode, Mark James, Managing Director of Fintech at Investec UK, is joined by Dr Tristan Fletcher, founder and CEO of ChAI, where a team of specialists with 25 years AI experience help mitigate commodity price volatility for buyers and sellers. With an MEng in Manufacturing Engineering, MSc in Computer science, a PhD in Artificial Intelligence and a research fellowship at Imperial college looking at how to apply AI to "noisy" data sets, there's probably not a lot about AI that Tristan doesn't know.

More importantly, however, Tristan is an encyclopedia of how AI can be used in real world practical applications, having used it in everything from Algo trading; the Healthcare sector and - as we discover, fine wine trading. Who better, then, to ask about recent developments, and their likely impact?
