JP MORGAN SETS PATH FOR FUTURE – JP Morgan has hired a professor as the Head of Artificial Intelligence Research. Manuela Veloso will join the bank in order to identify opportunities and create programs that “could potentially transform financial services.” The market is looking to be more and more diverse with a third of J.P. Morgan’s most recent senior hires being from outside the industry. Last month Co-President, @Daniel Pinto, emphasised the push the company is making toward technology, the budget increasing from $9.5bn in 2017 to $10.8bn for 2018. Pinto said “We are always exploring ways to offer our clients faster, better and simpler ways to do business with us. The banks that don’t invest will lose ground.” #SpartanInternational
