A COMPLETE SUCCESS’ Face-to-face Dinagyang exceeded expectations

The special guests were seen enjoying the Ilomination night at SM City Iloilo with Mayor Jerry Treñas,  SM’s SVP for Operations Bien Mateo, Talent Manager Jojie Dingcong, Youtube celebrity Small Laude, veteran broadcaster Karen Davila, SM Supermalls president Steven Tan, philanthropist and influencer Tessa Prieto, eventologist Tim Yap, Manila Bulletin’s Arnel Patawaran and Chef Rafael Jardeleza, Jr. 


With thousands of domestic and foreign visitors packing various festival activities, Dinagyang’s return to the city’s streets exceeded expectations, according to Mayor Jerry P. Treñas.

A “complete success” was how he described the festival’s return to a face-to-face celebration after two years of restrictions due to the coronavirus disease pandemic.

“Everyone wanted a strong comeback…It was a complete success and this showed that Dinagyang and our Sto. Niño are beyond politics. I acknowledge all our sponsors from the private sector for their significant contributions in the success of Dinagyang. Of course, sa inyo tanan, mga pinalangga ko nga Ilonggo. Ang tanan nga ini bangud sa inyo kag para man sa inyo. Your strong support in all our activities played a meaningful role in the overall success of the festival.” ~Mayor Jerry P. Treñas, Iloilo City

Dinagyang Festival is known far and wide for its participants’ impressive choreography and striking costumes that reflect Ilonggo ingenuity, craftsmanship and artistry.

Treñas congratulated the Iloilo Festivals Foundation, Inc. (IFFI), major co-presentor of Dinagyang 2023, the participating tribes and corporate sponsors, among others.

The festival’s top sponsor was SM City Iloilo; it also served as venue for many Dinagyang activities, including the first-ever Dinagyang Ilomination on Jan.21, Batchoy Festival, festival costumes exhibit, and concert of various performing artists including Asia’s Pop Heartthrob Darren Espanto, among others.

A number of celebrities, prominent government officials and foreign dignitaries also came over, including First Lady Liza Marcos, YouTube sensation Small Laude, broadcast journalist Karen Davila, lifestyle columnist and philanthropist Tessa Prieto Valdez, television presenter and entrepreneur Tim Yap, former senator Franklin Drilon, Sen. Risa Hontiveros, and House Speaker Martin Romualdez, among others.

Dinagyang is the Hiligaynon word for revelry or merrymaking. The festival is Iloilo City’s version of the Ati-atihan celebrations widely observed not only in Panay Island but also in other parts of the country.

Two of the many foreign dignitaries who graced the festival were full of praises.

UnionBank Techs Up to understand and serve clients in trailblazing ways

"With this, the user will have a more convenient journey by using voice as naturally and as efficient as possible and will surely be confident about being secured." ~Bryan Bramaskara, a Data Scientist from UnionBank’s AI CoE


UnionBank Techs Up to understand and serve clients in trailblazing ways. AI-powered innovation to enable unprecedented, convenient, and more secure user experience.

Union Bank of the Philippines (UnionBank), through its Artificial Intelligence and Innovation Center of Excellence (AI & Innovation CoE), has strengthened its position as a trailblazer in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (DSAI) as it reports promising results in developing game-changing client solutions. Consistent with its ‘Tech Up Pilipinas’ advocacy, UnionBank’s AI experimental explorations utilize advanced technologies like speech recognition to better interact with the country’s increasingly digital-savvy users and provide them with a better customer experience anchored on financial inclusion.

Speech recognition technology employs various voice interaction capabilities such as recognizing the intent of what has been spoken and verifying a speaker’s identity. These capabilities have been harnessed to give customers a more natural experience of seamless interactions with the Bank’s services while still providing the needed security level. While most AI modules have English as the base of comprehension, UnionBank’s AI experiments are leading them to incorporate other spoken native languages including Tagalog and Bisaya. 

"Imagine a future when there will be no need to remember a password, because intrinsic characteristics such as voice or behavior will become the password." ~Dr. Adrienne Heinrich, UnionBank’s AI & Innovation CoE Head

This new technology is set to make interactions between customers and the Bank's touch points frictionless and even more efficient. It could significantly reduce the number of inputs needed for a smoother and less time-consuming experience, and lower the entry barrier for non-tech savvy and underprivileged groups such as persons with poor eyesight.

“Highlighting the power of voice technology and how it can further be utilized in different use cases such as customer service and fraud prevention, UnionBank cultivates more natural interactions for clients in general, and financial inclusion for the non-tech savvy and underprivileged groups in particular.” ~Dr. David R. Hardoon, UnionBank’s Chief Data and AI Officer

In early trials for this new technology, UnionBank initially identified that the required features can be integrated with current banking transactions such as paying bills, sending money, checking promos, topping up, updating phone numbers, and even urgently blocking cards when security concerns are raised. The high-tech speaker verification voice biometrics secures the system while allowing users to seamlessly authenticate within seconds. 

Through this new technology, UnionBank can lower the threshold for technology and digital capability while expanding its reach.
