¨I am honoured to be a initiated as a FWA Female Champion,¨ says Jennifer. ¨Gender diversity in the workplace is imperative not only for the success of businesses but for the success of men, women and families as a whole. What’s inspired me so much about the FWA is meeting so many like-minded women and seeing how they are championing gender diversity in highly-demanding work environments but also balancing personal and family life. These are women who are brave enough to ask for help and give help where needed.¨

Lewis was formerly a Managing Director with GIC where she was responsible for the strategic management of GIC’s internal and external communication activities. Before that she had been a journalist for over twenty years across the broadcast, print, and online platforms. She joined the Nexus FrontierTech Board as investor and advisor in the fall of 2019 and is playing an integral part aiding in the RegTech’s communications and public relations strategy.

Lewis adds, ¨I’m thrilled to be working with Nexus FrontierTech and advising them in their journey of growth. Nexus already has a very strong female presence, with over 70% of their global team and 50% of their management team being female. I’m looking forward to doing what I can to help them bring their cutting-edge solutions to enterprises all over the globe.¨

Nexus FrontierTech is a London-based Intelligent Automation firm that has positioned itself as a leading RegTech-focused solutions company whose team is at the intersection of technology and business.  With a foundation in serving financial institutions, Nexus has zoned in on the most pressing and costly challenges facing the industry today: compliance and business growth. With a strong track record deploying solutions for clients in the APAC region and having recently secured a 3-year contract with a large global bank with a presence in 76 countries, Nexus has recently secured $3.8M seed fund to propel its expansion into the US and European market.

20 September 2019 – Nexus FrontierTech’s UK-based team hosted the first of a series of Nexus-hosted AI seminars in Central London. Tuesday’s and Thursday’s seminar, ¨Beyond the Hype: How Banks Use AI to Drive Operational Efficiency¨ welcomed a group of over 30 banking and finance professionals looking to expand their knowledge  on the ways artificial intelligence is transforming the banking industry.


Hanizan Massod kicking off the session


Nexus CEO Danny Goh and Sales Director Hanizan Massod kicked off the session with an overview of AI’s impact on businesses’ digital transformation journey across the financial services industry, highlighting the benefits coming from the adoption and proper execution of AI in enterprise workflows and processes.


Attendees then took a deeper look into the biggest challenges banks face in this transformation, including on-demand access to data, cross-team collaboration and communication and visibility, as well as the ways intelligent automation can be leveraged to address these issues.  A framework for preparing for and setting up an intelligent automation system was explored, allowing participants to visualize and compartmentalize the various elements needed to integrate a successful automation solution.


CEO Danny Goh

¨We couldn’t be happier with the turnout and enthusiasm of our attendees,¨ said CEO Danny Goh. ¨It’s no secret that the financial services industry isn’t just tuned into the potential of AI, organisations are already adopting deep tech into their day-to-day business. The problem, though, is knowing how to integrate this technology with the data sets they already have, the various stakeholders involved, and the resources needed for it all to come together and prove fruitful. That’s where we know we can be of some help. Having an open dialogue is where transformation begins.¨


Nexus Commercial Director Alice St. George later presented a Case Study to show attendees a real example of how Nexus used this framework to successfully transform the sales quality review process of a large global bank.


The session ended with an open Q&A session, and a cocktail for guests to network with their peers.


This seminar was the first of a string of Nexus-sponsored events and webinars whose aim is to address industry-specific problems that could be benefited by the use of intelligent automation technology.

17 July 2019 – Nexus FrontierTech co-founders Danny Goh, Terence Tse, Ph.D and Mark Esposito, Ph.D sat down to talk about their newly released Amazon best-seller, The AI Republic: Building the Nexus Between Humans and Intelligent Automation with Author Hour’s Rae Williams.

In the 30-minute podcast the founders discussed many topics within the realm of artificial intelligence, including how AI should not be seem as an ¨all-seeing master, but a functional tool that must be combined with the intelligence we possess in order to be effective.¨

The three describe how their experiences owning and running a successful AI solutions company gave them the perfect background and experience to create something that could be used for training, academic work and events alike.

One of the main objectives in creating this piece of work, explains Terence, was to debunk popular myths about what AI can and cannot do.

¨A lot of people have different interpretations of what AI is and some people still think AI is Terminator stuff. That idea pushed us to look at writing a book that could help people understand what AI really is. In Europe, a lot of companies are still really struggling with how to put AI into their business operations and activities.¨

For CEO Danny Goh, the biggest reason for writing the book was to lessen the gap between the technology side of things and the business side of things.

¨I do realize that this technology is a big breakthrough in terms of what it can do to mankind. However, there is a big risk in what we can create in the lab and what is actually needed by the commercial world. We are not talking about tomorrow, we are really talking about how we can help the business world today to improve their operations, through how to help businesses run better, and how to create innovation.¨

But the book does not simply touch upon the fallacies of AI and its role in business. Chief Learning Officer Mark Esposito also commented on the government’s role in AI-adoption, and the importance of evolving education-styles in a future that’s bound to see prevalent use of this technology.

¨If you have a country that doesn’t have potential with this technology, it will be difficult for this country to attract investors to participate in trade. We see this as one of those make it or break it technologies that will not necessarily change everything overnight, but has the potential to be as disruptive as other inventions, such as the telephone or the internet.¨

When speaking on future generations he adds, ¨The idea is to create a different kind of human being capable of working with technology, without feeling that technology and people have to be a tradeoff. We like to imagine the symbio-intelligence, rather than having this idea that robots will take over.¨

Using disruptive technology to turn ‘useless’ data into competitive advantage: An interview with Danny Goh, Co-founder and CEO of Nexus FrontierTech


*This is a guest post written by Ton Dobbe – Chief Inspiration Officer at Value Inspiration and host of the Value Inspiration Podcast.


Every week I interview entrepreneurs and experts from around the world to share their big idea about new forms of value creation and the potential we can unlock when technology augments the unique strengths of people to deliver remarkable impact.


Untouched value opportunity


I was inspired by the big idea behind Nexus FrontierTech, hence I invited Co-founder and CEO Danny Goh to my podcast. We explored the enormous value opportunity that millions of organizations leave untouched around unstructured data simply because the ‘can’t manage it’. We also explored Danny’s vision on how the world is changing from an app-centric world into a skill-centric world and how that will influence the way we can create solutions going forward.


The thing that triggered me most from my interview with Danny:


¨The advantage that we give to them [our clients], is they’re one step ahead of their competitors.¨


Why did this trigger me? What’s the bigger value I see?


Far too often we create IT solutions that are about creating efficiencies and cost savings. And while that’s all good, in the end it’s only about creating incremental value. What I admire in Nexus’ approach is they start with the outcome in mind and find ways to utilize the latest technologies to create competitive advantages for their customers. It’s the reflection of how the combination of technology and people can deliver value far beyond the expected. That’s where shifts in value are created. That’s enabling their customers get ahead of other players in the market.


What’s the bigger question / opportunity that is being raised?


It’s the question: ‘What’s stopping us from delivering more competitive advantage?’ From what I see around me a lot starts with mindset. It’s asking the simple question: ‘why’ more often. ‘Why does a mortgage process at a bank take weeks, sometimes months? Why can’t this be done in days?’ ‘Why is an M&A process occupying so many consultants for months?’ ‘Why do people need to drive certain processes forward?’ And ‘Why aren’t we utilizing the creative gifts of people so little in everyday situations?’


Too often we settle with making significant adjustments that effectively do nothing more than allowing people to do more of the things they’re not meant to be doing in the first place. Why not think different and invest in ‘skills’ upgrades that make people do better (rather than just ‘more’) and deliver value unimaginable before. That’s where today’s technology can have its greatest impact. We just need to start thinking this way.


Listen to the big idea behind Nexus FrontierTech, and why it has the potential to transform the competitive powers of virtually any organization.

マークは、ジュネーブとボストンに拠点にメガトレンドやビジネスモデルの革新と競争力を研究している社会経済ストラテジストです。彼は、未来がどのように展開するかを描いた「Using Drive to Harness the Power of Today’s Megatrends」の共著者であり、 都市、政府、国連機関に対し、ビジネスとテクノロジー、そして政府の間のインターフェースについて助言やコンサルティングなども行っています。


AIに興味を持ったきっかけと、Nexus FrontierTechを共同設立した理由は何ですか。


私はテクノロジーを、自分自身の理解の欠如から、万能薬ではなくパンドラの箱のようなものであると思っていました。しかし、Terence Tse博士と共著したメガトレンドに関する本を執筆したことで、全く新しい世界に出会うことができました。 専門家でも鑑識家でもありませんでしたが、このテクノロジーとの出会いは、私の教育研究活動をする上での大事な柱となりました。もちろん、政府や政府高官の方達にコンサルティングをする場合でも同様です。


現時点で、AIはどこまで進んでいるんでしょうか? 実際に実装されているものはあるんでしょうか??


これはどの部分を見るかによって答えが異なると思いますが、マクロの視点から答えると、 いくつか少数派を除いて、適切なAI戦略を考えることさえ程遠い国がまだたくさんあります。 





私たちのカルチャー自体が私たちの真の差別化要因であると思っています。もちろん、コーダーはコーダーであり、AI科学者はAI科学者です。 しかし、私たちを特徴付けるのは、Nexusで働くことを真の貢献とする文化と多様性のユニークな融合なのです。 ファウンダー5人の間でさえ、私たちはこれ以上ないくらいバラバラです(笑)しかし、この事は私たちお互いの尊敬と結束力の妨げになっていません。私たちは、メンバーが率直で、隠し事がないことに満足していますし、手間や時間のかかるお役所的な作業とは全く縁のない世界にいます。


繰り返しになりますが、Peter Druckerが言っていたことで「culture eats strategy for breakfast(文化が戦略を食う)」とありますが、私はこれ以上同意はできません。




そして第二に、これらの教育機関は新しい価値となりうる可能性を持った様々なプロジェクトを提供してくれます。 私たちの投資家にとって、頼もしい重要な側面ですね。




私たちはあらゆる可能なプロジェクトに取り組むことができます。 しかし、”能力の限界”は私たちが無視することができない要因であり、そして市場が望むことと私たちができることの間で、組織間の調整をしなければならない事は必ずあります。




私の役割は、例えていうと、メインの食事に周りにデザインされ配置された、様々な混合物みたいなものです。 また、以前私が非常に狭いターゲット向けに出版したものの、その後結果的に大きな露出となり、弊社のメンバーも巻き込んだ本を通してのロビー活動や、それに関する研究がありますね。



Nexusのミッションである「Unlocking the power of AI(AIの力を解き放つ)」とはどういう意味ですか?






もちろん、IPOやM / Aなどの典型的なパターンに進化する可能性もありますが、それが起こった場合、Nexusは次の進化段階に進むでしょう。 私はNexusがハイテク企業であっても、オープン性、透明性、そして相手への気遣いを保証する組織であることを望んでいます。 

Terence Tse,PhD Nexus FrontierTechの共同創業者兼エグゼクティブディレクター。ESCPヨーロッパビジネススクールのロンドンキャンパスにてファイナンス分野の准教授を務める。 また、「Understanding How the Future Unfolds: Using DRIVE to Harness the Power of Today’s Megatrends」を共著。このフレームワークは、ビジネス思想のリーダーシップで最も権威のある賞であるThinkers50によって、CK Prahalad Breakthrough Idea Awardにノミネートされる。さらに英国のチャータード・マネージメント・インスティテュートが発行する専門誌「Professional Manager」が、2018年に経営とリーダーシップを再形成した18名のニューボイスにも選出される。米国のビジネス誌「Talent Quarterly」も、DRIVEフレームワークを今後のマネジメントを変革する24のトレンドの一つに挙げている。 


あなたはケンブリッジ・ジャッジ・ビジネス・スクール大学やESPCヨーロッパなどの一流大学にて様々な活動をしており、高等教育に強いバックグラウンドを持っています。 AIスタートアップの共同設立に至った経緯は?


実は、Nexusの共同設立は偶然の結果でした。同じく共同創業者のMark Expositoと共に「Understanding How the Future Unfolds: Using Drive to Harness the Power of Today’s Megatrends」という本を執筆した後、私はどのような技術が実際に実現可能なのか、新しいテクノロジーへの強い関心が高まっていました。 ちょうどその頃、私たちの本を読んだダニーが、新しい事業をUKでスタートしたので私に会いたいと連絡があったのです。それがNexus FrontierTechでした。




多くの人々が未だにAIで何ができるのかを分かっていません。ちなみに、現時点では見ている画像が犬なのか猫なのかさえ識別できません。 AIは犬であるかどうかを判断しようとするだけです。 AIが達成できるものが限られており、多くのメディアがAIを正しく伝えられていないことは確かです。 また、私たちが得た経験から感じたもう一つの大きなズレ、実はAIを実際に運用する上で最も難しい部分は開発自体ではなく、クライアント側の既存システムにそれを適応させることなのです。 市場にはかなりの数のAIアプリケーション/ベンダーがプロダクトをリリースしていますが、実際にそのような既製のソリューションが、クライアントの目的を正確に満たすことは容易ではありません。そして、そのほとんどが失敗に終わっています。




実際にAIはある種の流行語となっています。 AIと聞くと多くの人は人間の仕事を代わりに行うロボットのような機械をイメージしていると思いますが、結局のところ、AIには "知性" がありません。 これは、"知性"とは創造性、問題解決能力、共感力を含むものを意味するからです。そして機械はそれらをどれも持っていません。個人的には、"自然言語処理" や "画像認識" などの用語に使用しています。 これらの用語は、AIのような包括的で曖昧な言葉とは異なり、機械が実行できることを正確に表現しているからです。 




それはしばしば最初の一歩を踏み出しています。 一部の企業は、AIについてこれまでまったく試したことがなく、むしろ知らない場合もあり、テクノロジーを利用することにも消極的です。 AIがその潜在能力を発揮するためには、クライアントそれぞれに合わせてカスタマイズする必要があることは言うまでもありません。 そしてこれには多くの作業が伴います。 実際に何度か企業がAIを導入しようとしているのを見たことがあります。 しかし、間違ったベンダーに声をかけてしまい、無駄の予算をかけた割にまったく価値を出せなかったり、またベンダー側も概念実証の範囲を越えられなかったりする場合が多々ありました。その結果、彼らは失望し、再度AIを導入しようとする場合、より慎重なアプローチを取ることになります。 彼らは最初にNexusFrontierTechと話をするべきでしたね(笑)。


あなたは、Nexus CEOのダニーと最高学習責任者のMark Esposito博士と共著して、別の著書「The AI Republic: Building the Nexus Between Humans and Intelligent Automation」を共著しました。 この本で触れていることと、現在のNexusの使命との関連について教えてください。


私たちはAIを分かりやすく説明し、実際にできることとできないことを具体化したいと思っています。 また、現代のAIがどのようにして実現するのか、テクノロジーの技術的側面についても説明しています。AIは将来、世界に大きな影響を与えます。この本はその技術に関する倫理的な問題についても取り上げます。


Nexusは「AIに民主化を!」をミッションに掲げています。 これはあなたにとってどういう意味ですか?


この質問には、私もダニーがよく使う例え話を使って説明しています。 私たちが最初にインターネットに出会った時のことを覚えていますか? 当時は、Webサイトをまとめるとしたら、たくさんのプログラミングをしなければならないでしょう。 これは行うべき技能と装備を持っている人に限られていました。 最近では、特定のアプリケーションを使ってドラッグアンドドロップできるため、Webサイトの構築に必要なプログラミング知識はほとんどありません。 それと同様に、「AIを民主化」するため、私たちは誰もが簡単に使えるアプリケーションを提供します。 私達のプロダクト「」はリサーチャーやエンジニアがクライアント向けに作っているAIプロダクトを簡単に構築することができ、またクライアント側はAIベンダーの技術導入を簡単に行うことが可能になるでしょう!
