FinTech in the Commonwealth: Regulatory and Privacy Considerations
March 21, 2019 @ 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
From coins and banknotes, to credit cards and ATM machines, “financial technology” has a long history of finding new and betters ways for people to exchange goods and services and leverage their capital. So why (and how) is today’s financial technology “disrupting” the way we save money, pay for services, make investments, and take out loans? This program provides a general overview of financial services in the age of the smartphone, the regulations governing the applications, processes, products and business models known as “FinTech,” and forecasts the challenges of data privacy and artificial intelligence decision-making that entrepreneurs, consumers, and the legal industry will inevitably grapple with in the years ahead.
