Following the publication of best-selling titles, The FINTECH Book, The INSURTECH Book, The WEALTHTECH Book and The PAYTECH Book,  we are pleased to announce the release of the latest instalment in the series: The AI Book.The AI Book Cover

The AI Book is the result of globally crowdsourcing the most cutting-edge artificial intelligence knowledge, led by FINTECH Circle.

After the initial call for potential co-authors of the book was released and shared across the wider fintech community, 170 potential contributors submitted proposals with a diverse range of industry expertise.

After shortlisting writers, these successful AI entrepreneurs, fintech professionals, thought leaders and investors went on to write chapters for The AI Book, the latest edition of The FINTECH Book Series published by WILEY.

Susanne Chishti, the CEO and Founder of FINTECH Circle, selected three AI and technology leaders to join her on the editorial side – a powerful all-women team consisting of Ivana Bartoletti (Technical Director at Deloitte, author and Co-founder of the Women Leading in AI network), Anne Leslie (Senior Managing Consultant at IBM), and  Shân M. Millie (Founder at Bright Blue Hare, Founding Associate of London Market Growth and Business Performance Specialists at GreenKite).

The AI Book is the artificial intelligence handbook for investors, entrepreneurs and fintech visionaries. It aggregates diverse expertise into a single, informative volume and explains what AI  really means and how it can be used across financial services today. Key industry developments are explained in detail, and critical insights from cutting-edge practitioners offer first-hand information and lessons learned.

Susanne Chishti states that “Providing readers with the information needed to holistically connect AI and financial services, The AI Book is an invaluable source of the most current information available for entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, incumbents, analysts and consultants working in or interested in exploring this space.”
