BIGCast: Using Artificial Intelligence, Organically with Kirk Drake (Podcast)

Recently, CU 2.0 Founder and CEO Kirk Drake sat down with John Best from the eponymous Best Innovation Group. But they didn’t just sit down… they also conversed (and recorded it).

Drake and Best discussed credit unions, technology, and using artificial intelligence (AI) in financial services. Consider it a 30-minute crash course on the biggest obstacles facing credit unions and AI…

And a primer on how credit unions can integrate AI into their long-term plans!

At the end of 2020, a year that saw an incredible shift toward digital tools and technology, Drake finished his second book: Financial: Helping Financial Services Executives Prepare for an Artificial World.

His findings were eye-opening:

  • AI has been a human goal for thousands of years;
  • In the last few decades, AI has gone from parlor trick to business critical technology;
  • Big banks and fintechs invested heavily in AI—and they’re already seeing BIG returns;
  • Credit unions and community banks must follow suit ASAP!
