Artificial Intelligence in Banking

Big Data and Artificial Intelligence are transforming how banks operate across the board – from Robo-Advisors and Fraud Detection to customer service chatbots and churn prediction. Learn all about the best practices, based on our experience, and start your own Data Journey with [at]. 


AI technologies accelerate banking processes, make money transfers more secure and improve efficiency for back-end operations. Banks can use AI to transform the customer experience by enabling seamless customer interactions 24/7 across multiple channels. But AI banking applications are not just limited to retail banking services. Business clients, investment banking and all other financial services also stand to benefit from AI.

The use of Artificial Intelligence has the potential to enable massive increases in efficiency and yield in all areas.

The use of chatbots and robo-advisors can save resources and reduce costs. Customer loyalty can be strengthened with the help of personalized offers and additional functions based on the evaluation of customer Data. Entirely new target groups can be tapped by developing new, Data-driven products, such as (to give an example) microloans, granted directly via smartphone in real time by linking a wide variety of internal and external Data with the aid of intelligent algorithms.

Do you know the Data Journey?

We have used our experience from over 1.000 projects over the last 8 years to develop a holistic system for Data & AI projects – our Data Journey. An integrated Data Strategy forms the foundation and the framework for generating real added value from Data – what we have dubbed Data2Value. Our Data Lab is all about speed! Their main goal is to test Use Cases as quickly as possible – from the concept phase to the prototype using real Data. In the Data Factory, Use Cases are industrialized into finished products. The absolute main focus is on scaling and the sustainable generation of added value – therefore the end user is just as much the focus here as well. In our DataOps we continuously operate and maintain your platforms and machine learning algorithms.

Our Customers


The use of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence is already having a massive impact on the banking sector. Banks have access to vast amounts of Data that hold enormous potential. In the following, we will introduce a selection of fields in which Artificial Intelligence can be used in banks and enterprises:


Fraud Detection

Detect and successfully combat fraud attempts in real time.

Predictive Banking

Predictive Banking

Provide customers with transparency and predictability regarding their own finances through analysis and Data-driven banking.

Robo Advisors


Tap into new customer segments by automating recommendations and management of investments.


Credit Scoring

Reduce default risks with AI-supported credit scoring tools while also greatly speeding up credit decisions, at times even to the point of making them in real time.



Free up and optimize customer service and back offices by deploying virtual assistants and digital robots in customer communication.

Churn Prediction

Churn Prediction

Identify customers at risk of churn and retain them by addressing them with the right offer in a targeted manner.



Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a general term that covers various sub-disciplines within mathematics and computer science. In simple terms, AI are intelligent programs that perform specialized, sometimes highly complex tasks – in many cases better even than humans could. Some of the best known AI methods are Supervised and Unsupervised Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Neural Networks and Natural Language Processing (NLP).

A study by HTW Saar reveals some interesting figures pertaining to Data Science & Artificial Intelligence in banks.
