In the last couple of years, the finance and banking sectors have increasingly deployed and implemented Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. AI and machine learning are being rapidly adopted for a range of applications for front-end and back end processes to both business and financial management operations. Thus, it is quite significant to consider the financial stability repercussions of such uses. Since AI is relatively new, the data on the usage is largely unavailable, any analysis may be necessarily considered Preliminary1 . Some of the current and potential use cases of AI and machine learning in the finance sector include the following.  Institutions use AI and machine learning methods to optimize scarce capital, back-test models, and analyze the market impact of trading large positions.  Financial institutions and vendors use AI and machine learning techniques to evaluate credit quality for market and price insurance contracts, and to automate client interaction.  Brokers, hedge funds, and other firms are using AI and machine learning to find pointers for higher (and uncorrelated) returns to optimize trading execution.  Private and public sector institutions use these technologies for data quality assessment, surveillance, regulatory compliance, and fraud detection. This book seeks to map the use of AI in current state of affairs in the banking and financial sector. By doing so, it explores:  The present uses of AI in banking and finance and its narrative across the globe.

From movie recommendations and autonomous cars to predictive healthcare, artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly disrupting industries. AI has reached the point where it is a practical technology. Investments in AI have surged in recent years, and major disruptions might be on the way among various industries, including the financial sector. However, the financial sector is one of the most regulated sectors. Considering that some AI methods cannot be fully explained or interpreted, it is not fully understood how the financial market participants can apply these methods within the current regulatory framework. This thesis introduces a framework that can be used to identify the appropriate AI method to apply in the financial market. Three main tasks build the foundation of this framework: Firstly, an analysis of the regulatory landscape provides a comprehensive overview of the current and the upcoming financial regulations and their implications concerning the usage of AI. Secondly, the relevant regulations for selected financial market use cases were identified and their implications of the regulatory framework in terms of applying AI interpreted. Thirdly, a matrix consisting of five different levels of abstractions enables a systematic analysis from the business use cases to the required AI methods. Among the 18 use cases analysed in this thesis, five were identified to have issues when applying AI methods. Four use cases were identified as suitable for AI. For nine out of 18 use cases, no regulations are in place that prohibit or allow the application of AI. This fact shows that there is still some room for interpretation and that the current regulatory framework might need some revision before AI is deployed on a larger scale. The analysis using the matrix further showed that in selected use cases the financial institutions need to rely on traditional AI methods with less accuracy instead of using deep learning methods to.

The usage of machine learning techniques for the prediction of financial time series is investigated. Both discriminative and generative methods are considered and compared to more standard financial prediction techniques. Generative methods such as Switching Autoregressive Hidden Markov and changepoint models are found to be unsuccessful at predicting daily and minutely prices from a wide range of asset classes. Committees of discriminative techniques (Support Vector Machines (SVM), Relevance Vector Machines and Neural Networks) are found to perform well when incorporating sophisticated exogenous financial information in order to predict daily FX carry basket returns. The higher dimensionality that Electronic Communication Networks make available through order book data is transformed into simple features. These volume-based features, along with other price-based ones motivated by common trading rules, are used by Multiple Kernel Learning (MKL) to classify the direction of price movement for a currency over a range of time horizons. Outperformance relative to both individual SVM and benchmarks is found, along with an indication of which features are the most informative for financial prediction tasks. Fisher kernels based on three popular market microstructural models are added to the MKL set. Two subsets of this full set, constructed from the most frequently selected and highest performing individual kernels are also investigated. Furthermore, kernel learning is employed - optimising hyperparameter and Fisher feature parameters with the aim of improving predictive performance. Significant improvements in out-of-sample predictive accuracy relative to both individual SVM and standard MKL is found using these various novel enhancements to the MKL algorithm.

After a long time of neglect, Artificial Intelligence is once again at the center of most of our political, economic, and socio-cultural debates. Recent advances in the field of Artifical Neural Networks have led to a renaissance of dystopian and utopian speculations on an AI-rendered future. Algorithmic technologies are deployed for identifying potential terrorists through vast surveillance networks, for producing sentencing guidelines and recidivism risk profiles in criminal justice systems, for demographic and psychographic targeting of bodies for advertising or propaganda, and more generally for automating the analysis of language, text, and images. Against this background, the aim of this book is to discuss the heterogenous conditions, implications, and effects of modern AI and Internet technologies in terms of their political dimension: What does it mean to critically investigate efforts of net politics in the age of machine learning algorithms?

Regulating Artificial Intelligence

This book assesses the normative and practical challenges for artificial intelligence (AI) regulation, offers comprehensive information on the laws that currently shape or restrict the design or use of AI, and develops policy recommendations for those areas in which regulation is most urgently needed. By gathering contributions from scholars who are experts in their respective fields of legal research, it demonstrates that AI regulation is not a specialized sub-discipline, but affects the entire legal system and thus concerns all lawyers. Machine learning-based technology, which lies at the heart of what is commonly referred to as AI, is increasingly being employed to make policy and business decisions with broad social impacts, and therefore runs the risk of causing wide-scale damage. At the same time, AI technology is becoming more and more complex and difficult to understand, making it harder to determine whether or not it is being used in accordance with the law. In light of this situation, even tech enthusiasts are calling for stricter regulation of AI. Legislators, too, are stepping in and have begun to pass AI laws, including the prohibition of automated decision-making systems in Article 22 of the General Data Protection Regulation, the New York City AI transparency bill, and the 2017 amendments to the German Cartel Act and German Administrative Procedure Act. While the belief that something needs to be done is widely shared, there is far less clarity about what exactly can or should be done, or what effective regulation might look like. The book is divided into two major parts, the first of which focuses on features common to most AI systems, and explores how they relate to the legal framework for data-driven technologies, which already exists in the form of (national and supra-national) constitutional law, EU data protection and competition law, and anti-discrimination law. In the second part, the book examines in detail a number of relevant sectors in which AI is increasingly shaping decision-making processes, ranging from the notorious social media and the legal, financial and healthcare industries, to fields like law enforcement and tax law, in which we can observe how regulation by AI is becoming a reality.
