Over the past year, SEI Investments has developed a multi-channel natural language platform that is at the heart of its product roadmap.

SEI will conduct a live demonstration of its platform which includes high-risk, high-value queries and transactions that require strong identity assurance. SEI and Privakey will demonstrate how they’ve created a mobile device authentication flow that complements the natural experience of voice interfaces while meeting their information security team’s requirements.
