Industry insights from Matt McKenna

We asked Matt about the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) within personal finance

How could AI impact the world of personal finance?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer the preserve of science fiction movies and it brings a fascinating mix of potential benefits vs risks. As an example, its ability to digest huge amounts of information could help to level the playing field for amateur investors. To help demonstrate this we tasked ChatGPT to create a ‘fund’ that then went on to comprehensively beat the UK’s most popular human-led funds. However, the rising number of deep fake videos and their potential to trick people into losing money is something to be very concerned about. We showed a mixture of real and deep fake clips of celebrities to the public and less than 2% could identify all of them correctly.
