RegFi Episode 21: Navigating the AI Revolution in Consumer Lending with Kelly Cochran
 38 min listen

FinRegLab Deputy Director Kelly Cochran joins RegFi cohosts Jerry Buckley and Caroline Stapleton for a conversation about how machine learning – including generative artificial intelligence – is used by consumer lenders and the evolving regulatory response. Kelly begins with a helpful distinction between the technologies commonly included under the broad “AI” moniker, noting that many of these algorithmic models are not new to credit underwriting. The discussion then pivots to the growing focus on generative AI and the need to balance its potential benefits with consumer protection, data privacy and explainability considerations. Kelly suggests that existing rules in the financial services regulatory framework can be adapted to address many of these issues and serve as a model for AI policymaking in other sectors.
