David Aferiat, cofounder and managing partner at Trade Ideas, moderated the panel on big data, which also included Raj Neervannan, chief technology officer and cofounder at AlphaSense, Rob Pfeifer, the chief risk officer at Affirm, and Sorensen.

Sorensen said the financial institution transcribes voice calls and uses artificial intelligence to identify areas of customer need.

AlphaSense’s Neervannan also touched on the importance of targeted community engagement and understanding a customer base.

In order for successful community engagement to be achieved, a company must define its audience and the appropriate data to share, he said.
