Korea’s Central Bank to Establish AI, Blockchain Divisions
The Bank of Korea has decided to set up a “Digital Innovation department” via organizational changes before the end of this year. Specifically, the bank intends to develop and roll out tools based on artificial intelligence and blockchain, via the digital innovation department.
The department will carry out works such as putting into effect latest digital technology decisions and widening the digital framework. Commenting on the task, an executive at Bank of Korea stated:
“We will improve work efficiency by applying minutes from meeting minutes to financial and economic indicator trends and foreign exchange audits with the technology introduced.”
