Newsweek’s Regtech and Identity event will focus on the technologies in turn, and examine the business problems they can address from a regulatory perspective.

Experts in machine learning and artificial intelligence from banks, card providers and fintechs will share what they see as the state of art in fraud prevention.

Following this, we will look at the best examples of biometrics and machine learning as an onboarding tool for banks, leading to an in-depth look at the anti-money-laundering landscape in Europe, and where technology is playing a key role.

Our examination of blockchain will begin with a focus on specific use cases such as KYC and health records, and how the technology is well suited to secure storage and retrieval of reference data. Finally, we will look ahead to how we can build a better world using these types of technology.

This is must-attend event for anyone interested in the future of regulation vis-à-vis technology: thought leaders and strategists from banks, card networks, infrastructure providers, business consultancies – and of course regulators themselves. We also have speakers from academia and many talented startups.
