For some time we’ve been exploring the idea of performing the ​Cash Management function using Artificial Intelligence.

The way this would work is that Cashflow forecasts would be run and then Artificial Intelligence software would be used to identify the most efficient way to balance mis-matches in cashflows across difference currencies and bank accounts.

Prolog is showing promise as the best way to develop the rule-based logic needed for Cash Management decision support.

At present there are a couple of large projects underway in the office and there are no free software development resources and another project. Hopefully this will change in July 2016.

In the meantime we’re putting some quiet thought into how Artificial Intelligence can be used in the next generation of treasury software.
