What is this brief about?

Our industry, and other industries around us, are being disrupted at incredible speeds. New technologies and solutions are appearing almost daily in our lives in ways we never thought imaginable. Are you living in someone else’s future, or are you creating your own. Are you building a future through the eyes of your members?

Over the last year, fourteen Filene i3 innovation teams have been working, and prototyping, creative solutions to challenging problems we are seeing in our research. They are solving issues our members are facing today, with solutions that address the trends of tomorrow. From leveraging artificial intelligence and virtual reality, to aiding credit unions’ understanding of their communities with a futurist mindset, to supporting credit unions’ role and engagement in those communities. The output of their hard work is highlighted in this brief.
