Microsoft's stock reached a record high ahead of its announcement of new AI advancements. The company's stock broke out of a cup base, marking a significant uptrend. This surge is attributed to Microsoft's strong performance in cloud computing and AI initiatives, including its Copilot products. The upcoming Ignite conference, where Microsoft will showcase its latest AI innovations, is eagerly anticipated as a potential catalyst for further stock growth.

Did ChatGPT make a terrible mistake with plugins? 😬

Soooo ChatGPT kinda made a mistake with plugins!

ChatGPT’s most recent update brought custom GPTs and a new interface, along with a supposed new plugins ability.

You apparently can now change the plugins AFTER you’ve started a new chat.

But it’s not really working as intended…

🤷‍♂️ What’s Going On and Why It Matters:

Whether you realize it or not, credit unions (and their regulation) help drive the American economy forward. 

And the recent surge of Generative AI is changing how the industry operates. 

So who better to break it all down for us than Kyle Hauptman, the Vice Chairman for National Credit Union Administration

Here’s the gist: 

AI has the potential to revolutionize the financial industry, and that includes the work of regulators. 

Kyle enlightened us on how AI is already being used by credit unions for various purposes, from fraud detection to customer service.

And then he took it a step further — breaking down how the business of Generative AI can be a driving economic force in the same way the Internet was for the U.S. 

What else did we dive into

A ton. 

  • Discussion on the use of AI in financial regulation and the potential benefits

  • Explanation of how AI has been used in the financial sector for decades

  • Examples of how credit unions are already using AI, such as online lending and customer service improvements

  • Public perception of AI, including both excitement and concerns

  • Importance of responsible development and capturing the upside of AI

  • Potential job opportunities and benefits for individuals and companies, especially in financial services

  • Potential impact of generative AI on lending decisions and customer service in the financial sector

What’s it mean for the rest of us? You know, those not guiding financial institutions? 

Let’s break it down 👇

🦾How You Can Leverage:

On today’s show, Kyle both zoomed in and hit rewind on how GenAI is impacting financial regulation. 

(Yeah, kids… do you even know what rewind is?!) 

In a far-ranging interview, Kyle laid out not only how Generative AI is already having a profound impact, but also laid out a gameplan on how it can help the US government stay an economic juggernaut. 

Best yet?

Kyle also previewed what widespread adoption will mean for the everyday credit union user. 

Let’s get it. 

1 –Better customer service 🤝

More machines means better customer service.

Wait… what?

That’s right. Large language models can not only improve and personalize customer service, but it can also help break down language barriers. 

For example, credit unions can leverage LLMs to provide forms and information in multiple languages, catering to a more diverse customer base, or allow credit unions to provide answers in a multilingual way. 

Try this: Check out this article from the Credit Union Times, breaking down best practices and applications for credit unions.

2 – US leading innovation 📡

TBH, the US dominated the Internet innovation era. 

And Kyle sees the US having the same opportunity with Generative AI.  

This proactive approach positions the US as a leader in the AI industry, attracting top talent and investment. The advancements in technology enable financial regulators to stay ahead of potential challenges and drive innovation within the financial sector.

Why does that matter for financial regulation? 

More investment dollars, more jobs, and more opportunities for growth mean that financial regulators can better protect consumers and ensure the stability of the financial system.

Try this: How could the successful rollout of Generative AI help financial regulation and the economy at large? 

U.S. regulators can streamline processes, make data-driven decisions, and enhance fraud detection which can lead to U.S. landing more GenAI jobs and establishing itself as a leader in the space.

3 – GenAI = More loan fairnessN🫡

Here’s one we can all get behind.

Kyle laid out how AI helps regulators and credit unions level the playing field in terms of loan fairness. 

By using generative AI, financial regulators and credit unions can improve loan fairness by making lending decisions more accurate and fair. Traditional lending decisions based solely on credit scores can overlook important factors, such as payment history for bills and rent.

Try this: Not only can Generative AI transform lending by improving fairness, but it can even lead to greater economic equity in large if leveraged correctly.
