What’s on the agenda

Chief Wine Officer and IBM Watson Financial Services, are hosting the VIP networking dinner Pairing AI & Compliance: Overcoming Regulatory Pitfalls via Tech in San Francisco on Tuesday October 22nd 2019 from 6:15pm at the iconic Wayfare Tavern, 558 Sacramento Street.

Watson is the world leader in artificial intelligence and you will join the IBM Watson Financial Services and your financial services peers for an evening of discussions, thought leadership and networking. We will be combining business with pleasure over dinner with the Chief Wine Officer vintage champagne & fine-wine tasting experience fusing entertainment, education and a hint of competition.

Covering the very latest innovations in AI, automation and advanced analytics are designed to help institutions reduce regulatory, operational and reputational risk – reducing the compliance burden and detecting fraud, laundering and conduct violations. We will share how institutions are using AI to gain greater insight into suspicious behaviour, including identifying potential financial criminals, and not just financial crimes.

With fantastic references* from across the industry since their London UK launch in 2006, Chief Wine Officer dinners are now world-wide events that attract C-level and senior business leaders from major global firms around the promise of education, entertainment, a hint of competition, and relationship building over fine wine & gourmet cuisine – amongst their peers, clients and competitors. We will enjoy a champagne reception, pre-dinner speeches, 4-course meal, and wine tasting from the Wayfare Tavern hosted by our entertaining Master of Wine, Amy Christine.
