Download the AI Checklist

The recent surge in artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT has caught the world by storm, including the banking industry. As the use of chatbots and virtual assistants increases, we’re seeing a clear shift toward using automated technology to enhance customer service and streamline operations. 

However, as financial institutions increasingly adopt these technologies, the spotlight has been shifting toward the potential risks associated with improper deployment. This is especially true as the Biden administration recently announced a new executive order that aims to crack down on AI risks and cybersecurity.

So what is Posh doing to stay vigilant and mitigate potential issues for our customers? To understand that, we must first discuss what exactly the risks are.

What are the common risks of incorrect AI integration?

In the rapidly evolving landscape of AI solutions, mistakes or errors in deployment can easily introduce risk into banking operations. That’s why it’s crucial to work with a software provider like Posh that takes the utmost care in developing and deploying purpose-built AI tools that make your life easier, not harder.

When it comes to AI models for financial institutions, such as those used in customer service bots and virtual agents, there are three common risks that we’re addressing:

  1. Data and model poisoning: We train our discriminative models for intent recognition using private data, which we’re incredibly careful to keep secure. To further minimize the risk of a poisoning attack, human reviewers look at all the  data used for training to validate that the data isn’t malicious.
  2. Breaches in Data Privacy: Upholding the security of our partner’s data is of paramount concern to us here at Posh. Our teams have advanced security controls and industry-leading certifications to ensure all Posh systems remain compliant with high security standards.
  3. Incorrect Answers or Responses: One top concern for generative AI is the risk of providing incorrect information to customers and staff. Our customer-facing tools are trained on your institution’s specific services and workflows to provide quick answers, and they’re designed to connect customers with complex questions directly to a live agent for help.

How Posh is actively mitigating these risks for our banking partners

At Posh, our primary goal is to promote the responsible, safe adoption of AI tools to deliver exceptional customer service and streamline banking operations. As innovators in the field of AI, it’s our responsibility and mission to minimize the potential risks to our banking partners.

To ensure we’re doing our part and provide our partners with peace of mind, we:
