Artificial Intelligence and Finance: Modern Approaches and Implications

Submissions open 30th September 2023

Special Issue Information

Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming an increasingly important tool for fund managers, CFOs, regulators, traders, investors, and entrepreneurs. The generative AI revolution that started with the ChatGPT, has spurred a gale of creative destruction that poses risks and opportunities to most firms in the world. This general-purpose technology changes the tools that professional and retail investors use to collect, analyze and process structured and unstructured data. The implications of automation that generative AI offers could be significant for the financial industry and drastically affect financial decision-making. However, the implications of these technology-driven changes are not fully understood, and there is a pressing need for more research in this area. This special issue is devoted to exploring the role, impact, and future of AI in finance.
