Speaking on the B.A.S.I.C that forms the building blocks of Ant's technologies, Cheng Li explained the importance of each: blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), security, Internet of Things, and computing. From using blockchain as the new trust mechanism to improve the transparency and traceability of ecommerce supply chains or charity funds, to using artificial intelligence to reduce Ant's payment risk to less than one in a million, or answering millions of customer inquiries a day, Ant is showing how new technology can be applied to their business to solve previously challenging issues and provide inclusive financial services.
Other Ant technology experts also shared the latest user applications in blockchain, AI and security with the audience.

Faced with a high-growth Southeast Asian market where there is high percentage of unbanked or underserved population, the discussion centered on technology trends that have caught on and how it has changed the way people go about their daily lives.
The next ATEC will be taking place in London, June 2018.
