Innovations in Fintech and Adjacent Technologies:

Money20/20 showcased various innovative technologies and solution providers, companies like Temporal, an infrastructure company for managing workflows, and HugeBite DB, a database company.

We noted that technology such as blockchain, machine learning had a reduced presence compared to previous years. This year, the focus was on generative technologies and how they affect financial institutions and services. Some companies added artificial intelligence (AI) to their products.This trend demonstrates the influence of AI has begun in the fintech space.
