AI CUs prepare for the onset of AI.

It is not hard to find credit union leaders who are enthusiastic about artificial intelligence. Go to any conference or seminar and you’ll find vendors already promising the future of AI.

Oxford University’s researchers found the figure to be even higher, suggesting 47% of today’s jobs are candidates for AI obsolescence.

Jobs prime for automation are those heavily reliant on data, many of which are readily found in the financial industry. Among them are underwriters, loan officers, accountants and auditors, respectively ranked in likelihood of automation at 99%, 98%, 94% and 94% by the same Oxford study. Time to panic? Not exactly – the Oxford study suggested the invasion, or revolution, will take about 10 years, starting as early as 2025.
