An Introduction to the New Digital Economy

Keynote: “The FinTech of the 2020s will be as different from the FinTech of the last decade as email was to snail mail. The evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain are inevitable, but it is up to us to shape their path.”

Kiran added that “conferences such as FinTech are tremendously important because they make us face the realities of the trade-off in ethics, privacy, efficiency, convenience and cost. Such conferences take away any excuses of ignorance or assuming an attitude of disengagement and helplessness.”

The University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee campus hosted its first-ever financial technology conference, “FinTech 2020: Financial Services and the New Digital Technology,” on January 24, 2020. Northwestern Mutual was title sponsor of the event.

The event was held in Selby Auditorium on the Sarasota-Manatee campus, and attracted CEOs, businesses executives, digital marketers, investors, and innovators from the Sarasota-Manatee communities.
