It’s important to cut through the hype surrounding AI, as people think it’s both costly and complicated to implement. ♪ [music] ♪We are using MindBridge Ai as a sample selector. Rather than our trainees using random number sampling, or trying to pick risky transactions out of a large data set, MindBridge ranks all of your transactions based on perceived risk.

MindBridge stands up to scrutiny by the regulators. If they ask me how I’ve picked a sample, I can say I’ve used MindBridge, and they’ll explain the technology, which is a lot more robust. MindBridge gives me confidence in my audit methodology, which is really important to me. ♪ [music] ♪
