Robin Grosset

Patent Agent, CTO Mindbridge AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to disrupt many professions and the future of any role will certainly involve AI. This is true for doctors, lawyers, accounts and even engineers. In this session, we will look at the factors which are bringing about this disruption. We will also explore the importance of explicability and a human-centric approach in AI technology to support improving professional judgement.

 

Robin currently works at MindBridge where he leads the development of a next generation AI Auditor which helps professionals detect and prevent financial anomalies including fraud.

 

Robin has a track record as an entrepreneur having founded successful software start- ups. He joined Cognos and subsequently IBM through acquisitions. In 2012 he was appointed IBM Distinguished Engineer. At IBM, he was a part of the Watson Group where he served as technical lead and chief architect of IBM Watson Analytics. Robin holds many patents in the areas of analytics, data processing and security. MindBridge Ai is a venture-backed FinTech company based in Ottawa, Canada. Through the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies, the MindBridge platform detects anomalous patterns of activities, unintentional errors and intentional misstatements. Using MindBridge Ai Auditor, organizations across multiple industries can minimize financial loss, reduce corporate liability and can focus on providing higher value services to their clients.
