Artificial intelligence (AI) is considered the main driver of Industry 4.0, as machine learning systems are disrupting everyday processes across industries. The launch of ChatGPT, which is based on Generative AI technology, heavily impacted the world. The power and the yet untapped opportunity of Generative AI has led to the transformation of the financial sector, improving efficiency in business tasks, enhancing processes throughout entire organisations. 

The opportunities presented by Generative AI tools are undeniable and can be utilised by knowledge workers across seniority levels – from executives to junior staff. Disruption of Generative AI across business functions is agreed by 77% of leaders, driving the need for Generative AI upskilling across the industry to capture the opportunities and intricacies of the technology. 

“The impact of AI is not incremental but disruptive, it will significantly impact tons of roles and skills in finance. It is no longer about the why, but how to upskill people with the latest and practical knowledge.”

– Tram Anh Nguyen, Co-founder of CFTE
