Talk topic: “New generation banking: Alexa, call iBank API!” In last 12 months Miro attended 2 hackathons with focus on Open Banking. Very actual as financial institutions have until 2018 to implement the second payment services directive (PSD2). PSD2 is designed to boost competition in the name of “open banking” by forcing banks to allow third parties such as FinTech startups to access the data of customers who authorise it. Miro will share on the concept of iBank which marries BankAPI and Alexa voice-assistant, and if all technical obstacles are overcome a working prototype will be demonstrated.
