Poland’s Alior Bank to invest in IT solutions

Alior Bank, one of the four biggest banks in Poland, within the framework of “Digital Rebel” project, plans to spend PLN 400m (€93.6m) on IT over the period 2017-2020, according to biznes.newseria.pl. Alior Bank wants to invest in artificial intelligence and cloud computing. Employees will be equipped in mobile devices enabling provision of services outside the bank. At the moment, about 12% of all loans are being provided via the internet and Alior Bank presumes that this number will increase to 35% in 2020. It is supposed that over 40% of all bank transactions will become mobile up to 2020. It is interesting that Alior Bank has already implemented a virtual advisor called Dronn Agent (a system based on artificial intelligence and biometrics) in 2016.
