North American Banks Dominating AI!


Imagination in Action: Forging the Future of Business with AI at MIT's Media Lab in Cambridge, Mass.
The Evident Annual AI Index reveals which banks are leading in AI adoption and best usage of the technology.

I've been reading a lot about deals in the AI marketplace - investments, fundraising, and how the biggest names in tech are pouring billions of dollars into the industry segment.


But what are the traditional players doing? What institutions are leading in AI? Who is investing? Why are they investing? Where is the investment being directed, and what is the expected outcome? I pulled together information from a variety of different resources.


The headline kind of says it all - but don't confuse the USA and North America - surprise Canada also has captured a significant share in the artificial intelligence banking segment.


he Index ranks the effectiveness with which commercial financial services and banks are developing, adopting, and/or implementing AI across their organization.

Lets start with the most recent report, the Evident AI Index reveals which banks are leading in AI adoption and best usage. Researchers using Evident, the AI benchmarking and intelligence platform, developed the "Evident AI Index" which is an independent benchmark for commercial AI adoption and performance in the financial services industry.


First published in January 2023, the Index ranks the effectiveness with which commercial financial services and banks are developing, adopting, and/or implementing AI across their organization.


Assessing the AI maturity of 50 of the world’s largest banks - combining extensive manual research, automated data capture from public sources, consultation across a network of AI experts, and dialogue with featured banks, Evident has indexed the top 10 banks winning the AI race today.


Leading the race is JPMorgan Chase. Per the Evident Index, the American investment bank continues to “radically outperform” the wider market in AI research, preserving its position as the banking leader in AI innovation.

What’s more, it performed highest for transparency, thanks to its efforts to uphold responsible AI practices across the organization. In his annual letter to fellow shareholders, CEO Jamie Dimon wrote, "We are completely convinced the consequences will be extraordinary and possibly as transformational as some of the major technological inventions of the past several hundred years. Think the printing press, the steam engine, electricity, computing and the Internet, among others."


The Chief Data and Analytics Officer at JPMC said, “We are proud that our AI talent, insights and solutions were once again recognized as best-in-class and we are committed to continuing to invest in these capabilities to help us serve our clients and communities better.”


After JPMorgan Chase, rounding out the top 3 banks in AI maturity were Capital One in second place, and the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), in third place.
