S07E02 - Days of future (payments) past with Anders Olofsson

Time is relative and we go quantity over quality in jokes when Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu get to host Anders Olofsson in this week's fix of Fintech Daydreaming.

 

We jump from bitcoin to central banks, to connection problems, to Wirecard and more in this fast paced episode. Doesn't sound like a plausible script for a podcast but somehow we covered it all in this rollercoaster of an episode that shouldn't bore anyone - so grab the popcorn and enjoy the ride 😄

S07E01 - Are Fintech and Banks ready to take on the Challenges of ESG?

Season seven is here! Our Fintech Daydreaming hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu have (mostly) survived the holiday season, and have picked-up right back where we left off in 2022 by starting with one of the most important topics we are all going to be talking about in 2023: ESG in banking and fintech.

 

Luckily we found just the right expert to tell us all about the ups and downs of the challenge that we're facing in ESG: Adam Thompson spends his days making an impact in this space but managed to spare some time to discuss with us about what the state of affairs looks like right now and what we need to do move the needle in making the world quite literally a better place.

S06E10 - Season's (finale) greetings from Pål and Ville...

Time to wrap up season six of Fintech Daydreaming and see what (if anything) we learned in 2022. In our season finale we at least learn that ChatGPT hype has finally caught up with Pål and Ville, but is there a fintech angle to it at all and what is it good for actually? What about the problems of AI that are certainly going to be front and center with ChatGPT too?

 

Sit back, relax, grab a beverage of your own preference and join us for this relaxed wrap-up of this season and don’t worry: we will be back in 2023 for season seven.

 

In the meantime: Happy Holidays from all of us at Fintech Daydreaming! 🎄🎁

S06E09 - Minting the future of AI and data privacy with Amir Tabakovic

What do bananas, Finnish sauna, personal finance management and chimpanzees have in common?  Data, obviously 🤷‍♂️

 

Before you ask - have a listen to this penultimate episode of season six where Amir Tabakovic from Experiens.ai joined our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu to educate us about AI, machine learning and data usage in banking. In addition they take a run down memory lane of how Amir got involved with data driven financial services in the first place, and ended up lecturing in universities, and as an author of several papers on the topic.

 

You will find Moby Forum publications about emerging privacy enhancing technologies that we refer to in the episode from these two locations:

- The Digital Banking Blindspot - introduction to PETs (https://mobeyforum.org/the-digital-banking-blindspot/)

- PETs explained (https://mobeyforum.org/privacy-enhancing-technologies/)

S06E08 - Global, local, digital banking with Jeff Parker

How does a global company navigate the perilous landscape of regional regulation and remain competitive? Fintech companies handle a tremendous amount of sensitive and private data that puts them in the centre of this exact question.

 

Jeff Parker leads Marqeta's international unit and has a lot to say about how to find answers to difficult data questions that go way beyond just GDPR. Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu sat down with Jeff around our virtual Fintech Daydreaming podcasting table and learned all about it.

 

Luckily we also remembered to record our conversation, which means you get to listen to all of it today!
