🦾How You Can Leverage:

NVIDIA is just chips, right? 

Wrong. 

Malcolm deMayo painted a much different story of what NVIDIA is all about, especially as it pertains to the financial sector.

Malcolm is NVIDIA’s Global Vice President of Financial Services Industry, so he knows a thing or three about how the world's leading chip maker is actually about SO much more than chips. 

Case in point? NVIDIA has completely changed how the financial world does business.

And when NVIDIA talks, the financial world listens. 

Why? 

Malcolm schooled us on the company's seemingly unexpected role in the financial ecosystem. (Unexpected, at least, by the average outsider not living in the financial space.) 

See, NVIDIA is about much more than GPUs and AI for gaming; it's about pioneering the future of finance, too. Under Malcolm's guidance, NVIDIA is breaking the mold, proving that they're in the business of redefining how financial services operate, one algorithm at a time.

And they’re doing so in a BIG way. 

Today’s episode was so good, we had to play it twice. And, give you the breakdown. 

Whether it's trading and banking or fintech and payments, everyone's favorite graphic card maker is also behind-the-scenes helping the world's largest financial institutions make straight money moves. 

Here’s what you need to know, from one of the leading global voices at the intersection of finance and AI 👇

1 – Not chips. Software solutions.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. We get it. NVIDIA has mind-blowing chips. (I mean, did you see that Jensen Blackwell chip announcement?!)

NVIDIA’s actually more about leveraging the power of those chips via software, though, Malcolm said. 

Here’s how: NVIDIA's AI-powered financial tech isn't just giving old systems a facelift; it's performing full-on reconstructive surgery.

By accelerating compute capabilities, financial institutions are seeing operations that used to take days, done in minutes, slashing costs and boosting efficiency in ways previously unimaginable.

As an example, Malcolm pointed out that many financial analysts might have to collect data from 15 different systems for an institutional client. 

Now, AI can do that. With AI's capability to sift through and summarize data from multiple sources, financial analysts can now focus on strategizing rather than data gathering. This shift isn't just about efficiency; it's about enabling smarter, faster decision-making that's grounded in comprehensive insights.

2 – The ChatGPT explosion changed finance 🏦

For our ML/DL groupies in the back, let’s put this out there - AI ain’t new. Especially in the financial industry. 

Machine learning and deep learning algorithms have helped the world’s largest financial institutions for many decades. 

But Malcom noticed something happened AFTER 2022, which he called an AI/ChatGPT explosion.

Instead of highly technical clients reaching out to NVIDIA about AI-powered financial services, it was the CEOs. 

All of a sudden, the explainability and impact of Generative AI and large language models was easier to understand and had straightforward lanes of implementation. 

Try this:
You could break your dang back doing back bends trying to figure out where the financial industry is headed in the post-ChatGPT world.

Orrrrrr, you could just check this report from NVIDIA. From cost reduction and a growing focus on enhancing customer experience, check out NVIDIA's top trends for 2024 in the financial industry. 

3 – Real money moves 🤑

You think large language models are just for small companies or writing a haiku about why your dog is the goodest boy? 

Naaaaahhhh. 

The biggest players in the enterprise financial game are already cashin in on Generative AI via NVIDIA's financial offerings.

Case in point? JP Morgan Chase. (Maybe you've heard of them?) 

Malcolm shared how accelerated computing is reshaping how Chase is leveraging data and AI. Malcolm highlighted how NVIDIA's platform gave JPMorgan Chase's trading platform a nitro boost—imagine slashing costs by 80% while making trades 40 times faster.

It's not just about efficiency; it's about reshaping the landscape of risk and reward.

You might not get JP Morgan Chase-esque results overnight. But Malcolm gave plenty of advice for large financial institutions to take advantage of GenAI: customer service and experience. 

It’s a common goal across financial firm's annual reports: Boosting customer experience.

Malcolm pointed out that generative AI is the magic wand here, especially in call centers. Digital twins and AI-driven support systems are not future music; they're already here. 

Bye-bye hold music. 

Hello personalized and instant support. 

Try this:
Would talking to an AI avatar that had access to your financial info be a lifesaver or a data risk?

Regardless of where the answer falls, the world’s largest financial firms are testing the future of AI-powered customer experience.
