"Buzzwords are about the things that are coming, not the things we already have" 

Joining us during a business visit to China, Areiel Wolanow is an experienced business leader and former CPA with over 25 years spent working with leading corporations, central banks and financial regulators around the world. He was one of IBM’s key thought leaders in blockchain, machine learning, and financial inclusion, a topic particularly close to his heart. Currently serving as insurance industry advisor for the UK Parliament’s working group on blockchain, his long experience enables him to shake up perceptions and provide disruptive insights borne of his work at all levels of the profession - as we'll hear in his conversation with AICPA & CIMA's Zinaida Mahmutefendic.

 

WE DISCUSS:

  • Digital transformation of business and organisational activities.
  • AI & RPA and whether they're really as progressive and innovative as we might think.
  • Tactical advantages.
  • Blockchain.
  • Financial Inclusion.
  • RegTech and other buzzwords - GDPR/AI.
  • The other IOT. Is it "Internet of Things" or "Intelligence of things"?
