Payment intelligence – The integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology with payment systems has resulted in substantial improvements in operational efficacy, establishing a mutually advantageous alliance between the two domains. Artificial intelligence has been recognized and applied before the current epoch; however, its implementation has been deemed insufficient.

Further exploration through rigorous research, development, testing, and practical implementation is imperative to elucidate the interdependent relationship among technologies (Payment science, AI and blockchain), payment systems and financial systems.

This is part 2 of the previous post from 2017 “PaymentIntelligence – Artificial Intelligence in the Payments Industry

Introduction – Payments Intelligence

Implementing a national payments system has the potential to foster a cohesive connection among all sectors of a nation and enhance its resilience against covert financial activities. Additionally, the implementation of such a mechanism could effectively mitigate the rampant prevalence of impurities in subterranean markets.

Venture capitalists who are interested in this field have optimistic views regarding the impact of artificial intelligence on payment optimization, fraud reduction, customer support enhancement, and risk evaluation. It is believed that the potential of AI in these areas has captured their attention.

The Payment Intelligence System is positioned to deliver a multitude of benefits to consumers, including enhanced security measures, informed advice on ideal spending habits in terms of amount, timing, and location, and an exceptional overall customer experience attributed to the utilization of AI technology. At the same time, banking institutions stand to gain a significant advantage from the system’s numerous affordable and high-performance data processing capabilities.

Frequently, customers divulge an extensive range of details regarding their payment options, such as debit and credit cards, digital wallets, online banking software, mobile payment systems, and other forms of payment, regardless of whether they are aware of it or not.


Data Explosion and Payment intelligence

The inherent quality of data is lacking in energy and essential intellect if we don’t know how and what to look into it. The effectiveness of a particular action greatly depends on having sufficient support, expertise, and resources for its execution and implementation. When utilized alone, it has a tendency to produce restricted results and demands in-depth comprehension and proper management.

The evident importance of algorithms cannot be denied. Algorithms are crucial in deciding and driving actions. The fundamental aspect of high-frequency algorithms in the business world is their ability to analyze, evaluate, and make decisions faster than the regular heart rate of humans.


The intersection of FinTech and Advance technologies (Blockchain, Payment science with advanced analytics, and Artificial Intelligence) has unveiled advantageous prospects for creating income. A major focus in modern FinTech is the application of computer-generated algorithms to analyze sets of data in order to identify distinctive patterns. The implementation of state-of-the-art systems is contributing to the improvement of intelligent systems used in this sector, with the potential to elevate their operational efficiency to unprecedented heights.

As expected, these companies in this domain have a unique market niche and can efficiently overcome business challenges in their respective fields. The FinTech industry has undergone a major transformation due to the innovative effects of advanced technologies, resulting in the widespread introduction of financial services.

FinTech Intelligence Advancement – Better Tomorrow

With the increasing involvement of business teams in the delivery of solutions and the ever-evolving field of digital business, it is anticipated that a more intricate array of technologies, methodologies, and procedures will be necessary to cater to the varying requirements of users. Organizations need to strategically prepare for implementing or replacing crucial technologies and practices while nurturing the growth of individuals and their skill sets. The banking industry is capable of utilizing artificial intelligence in numerous ways.


Here are five key applications of artificial intelligence in the Banking industry that will revolutionize the industry in the next 5 years.

  • Algorithmic trading
  • Chat bots
  • Customer recommendations
  • Fraud detection
  • AML Pattern Detection.

Blockchain technology has already made its presence felt in the financial industry, and despite being relatively nascent in this space, it has been grabbing the attention of top executives in almost every sector, as revealed in a recent study exploring the technology’s potential in the industry. Blockchain has been claimed as a solution to numerous security risks arising from information management. Business tactics such as gaining customers and generating income could be at risk, among other potential factors.

  • Application tampering
  • Rogue Apps
  • Malware
  • Overlay attacks

To effectively manage threat intelligence at all times, the use of smart tools and systems is required for continuous threat hunting. The implementation of blockchain can accelerate payment intelligence (PI) processes, as a significant percentage of banks are still in the research phase while a smaller group is testing proof of concepts. The implementation of blockchain technology is anticipated to be commonly seen in intra-bank cross-border transactions, followed by corporate payments and cross-border remittances.

Expectations from Payments Intelligence

The introduction of the payment intelligence (PI) system has not only opened up numerous avenues for aspiring entrepreneurs but has also contributed to the growth and development of the economy. The expected level of standards is exceptionally elevated.

The confluence of blockchain, artificial intelligence, payment science, and financial technology raises the question of whether they can ultimately provide solutions or enhanced capabilities. Specifically, it is pertinent to explore how the implementation of machine learning and advanced analytics through payment intelligence can lead to improvements.

However, it is essential to ensure that a comprehensive understanding of the real and accurate problems is established before identifying any solution. Consequently, the relevant inquiries and concerns surrounding this issue require answers.

In order to develop innovative products, services, and solutions for financial technology and banking, it is essential to have a team with a blend of technical and business experts who can comprehend the importance and application of artificial intelligence.



Conclusion – The financial services sector is on the cusp of a significant transformation with the implementation of artificial intelligence. The impact of artificial intelligence on fintech’s future is significant, especially in the African market, where there are even more exciting opportunities, as evidenced by the growth observed in the last five years.

In Africa, there is a modern mobile payment system in place that includes mobile wallets that allow for various payments such as merchant payments, bill payments, and purchasing prepaid airtime. Innovative machines are now capable of generating intelligent payments infused with in-built payment knowledge. What particularly intrigued me in the PI manual (currently in the works) was the breakdown of intricate PI concepts, including regression and AI components, likened to a teacher imparting knowledge to students in a classroom, recommending linear for continuous outcomes and logistics for binary results.
