Add Value Machine (AVM), a provider of secure generative AI platforms, and Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB), one of the largest banks in the UAE, have successfully concluded the ADCB Generative AI Hackathon. The event, which took place in Abu Dhabi, marked the first time a UAE bank has conducted a hackathon focused on exploring the potential of generative AI in the banking sector.

John Shaw, CEO of Add Value Machine, said: “We are thrilled to have partnered with ADCB and AWS to host this groundbreaking hackathon. Our secure generative AI platform has enabled ADCB to explore innovative solutions that can drive meaningful business impact across the bank. This event showcases the immense potential of generative AI in the banking sector, and we look forward to working with ADCB to bring the most impactful use cases into production.”

The hackathon brought together nearly 120 participants from ADCB, AVM and AWS

The participants collaborated to structure the event around key business outcomes, focusing on the most relevant ROI generative AI use cases in procurement, engineering, retail banking, and treasury.

Sean Langton, ADCB’s CIO, commented: “Generative AI is the perfect technology for a hackathon – it has unlimited opportunity to improve our business and customer experience but also presents emerging risks we need to be mindful of. Thanks to our partnerships with Added Value Machine and AWS, we’ve been able to build several AI ‘bots’ in a safe way in just a day. I can’t wait to see the first of these up and running in production in the coming days.”

All use cases developed during the hackathon were built on AVM’s observability, governance and compliance generative AI platform. AVM and AWS are now working closely with ADCB to accelerate the most impactful use cases into production, ensuring that the bank can quickly realise the benefits of generative AI technology.
