At the Mastercard R&D lab, staff are using the most cutting-edge technology to etch out the future of fintech.

There are a whole host of new companies entering the fintech space. The environment has never been more competitive so, regardless of whether you’re a newcomer or a legacy firm, there’s a lot to contend with.

Mastercard fully intends to maintain its position as a financial powerhouse, as evinced by the work going on at the company’s Dublin R&D lab. Engaging the latest technologies, Mastercard’s team of software engineers is focusing on things such as voice interfaces, natural language processing, and augmented and virtual reality.

We headed down to the lab to speak to some of the staff there and hear more about their work.
