What Credit Union Execs Need to Know About

Today’s LLMs are trained on millions of data points, but not yours. 

Without some level of fine-tuning, your AI strategy will fall short. Here’s what credit union leaders need to know: 

Every institution is unique. Your members, processes, and data are all distinct.

This is why "out of the box" models rarely deliver the specialized performance needed for credit unions right away.

Fine-tuning an AI model with your credit union's unique data equips it to understand your members' specific needs and how your institution can best meet those needs. 

You can think of fine tuning as “teaching” the model new things based on your own data (ideally using thousands of examples). The impact of this teaching can have huge results. For example, an open source model fine tuned for a specific task can outperform even the greatest closed models like ChatGPT-4. 

The team here at AviaryAI has fine-tuned our model using thousands of pre-recorded conversations from our partners. The result is an AI that can mimic these specific “member to credit union” conversations with a personalized touch unique to our partners’ brands better than any model currently on the market. 

Fine-tuning does require significant computational resources and technical expertise but represents a step we found necessary in building a model that performs to the level our clients need. 


Prompt Engineering

is the process of finding the best way to ask an AI to do something so that it can give you the most helpful and accurate response. It involves understanding how these models work and crafting prompts, or instructions, that are clear, specific, and well-structured to guide the model towards generating the desired response. Effective prompt engineering can significantly improve the quality and relevance of the model's outputs, making it a valuable skill for anyone working with language models.


The latest news at the intersection of GenAI and Finance

New AI Tool from Oracle Helps Banks Fight Money Laundering

Oracle's financial tech division has just launched a new AI-powered cloud service called Compliance Agent. This tool is designed to help banks test their transaction monitoring systems, adjust risk thresholds, and spot suspicious activities more easily. The goal? To make it simpler and faster for banks to combat money laundering.

Money laundering is a huge global problem, with an estimated $800 billion to $2 trillion laundered every year, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. That's a big challenge for banks and credit unions, and it's one that Compliance Agent aims to tackle head-on. By using AI to streamline the process of detecting financial crimes, this tool could help financial institutions save time and money while still meeting their compliance obligations.

As a credit union executive, this news is worth paying attention to. Adopting AI-powered tools like Compliance Agent could help your credit union detect suspicious activities more effectively, reduce the risk of financial crimes, and make your compliance processes more efficient. Plus, staying on top of the latest AI advancements in the financial sector can help you make smart decisions to protect your members and keep your credit union's reputation strong.
