Human is reading data and providing a score. AI can do this much quicker.

Financial markets are based on irrational behaviours. If you systematically make it rational through the precise use of AI, the there would not be any mispricing to exploit, hence how will money be made in a perfectly rational market harmonised by AI (i.e. the best recommendations will all be the same for all investors, reaching either fair value or expensiveness very quickly)?

Credit Analysis is a job field that has a broad range object of analysis, which are debtors. Some debtors, like individuals and small business can have simpler analysis tools than the more elaborate small-medium enterprises or even corporation. AI trends can go either way, depending on the types of debtors a group of credit analysts work on.
