Banks use AI everywhere, from chatbots to validating cheques

Banks use AI everywhere, from chatbots to validating cheques

Finance
In Axis Bank, cheque authentication today is largely done not by a human teller, but by an artificial intelligence (AI) system. It has multiple advantages. When someone tries to forge a signature, there are minute fissures, blots or anomalies that may not be visible to the human eye, but will become glaringly obvious to a trained bot (software robot). And if the account holder signs in a hurry and it’s not quite the same as in the bank’s system, the bot understands it’s actually a genuine signature. Only in instances where old age or disability has altered a person’s signature significantly does the bot pass on the query to a human. “But this is becoming rare, as our AI gets better with handling cheques and learns more,” says Ratan Kesh, executive VP and head of process transformation and

Heart strain from extreme exercise doesn’t cause permanent damage, study says

Health
June 27 (UPI) -- Performing strenuous exercise, like taking part in a 24-hour ultramarathon, won't permanently hurt a person's heart, new research shows. High-intensity running puts more strain on the heart and drives up biomarkers that would otherwise indicate cardiac risk, according to a study published in June in Heliyon. However, those elevated biomarkers don't cause permanent damage. "Experienced runners performed with greater intensity and speed which placed strains on their hearts," Rodrigo Hohl, a researcher at Federal University of Juiz de Fora and study co-lead investigator, said in a news release. "Novice runners ran with less intensity, which resulted in lower cardiac biomarker levels." The study included 25 people who took blood tests before and after they ran in a 24-hour u...
