AI in FinTech 2020 2020 : IJCAI 2020 Special Track on AI in FinTech
Call For Papers
IJCAI-2020 Call for Papers: AI in FinTech
FinTech (or Fintech), or financial technology, is at the epicentre of synergizing, innovating and transforming financial services, economy, technology, media, and telecommunication. FinTech nurtures new financial and economic mechanisms, models, products, services, and opportunities. FinTech also strengthens existing system efficiency, cost-effectiveness, customer experience, risk mitigation, regulation, and security.
AI is the keystone enabler of FinTech. AI essentially and comprehensively transforms the way and effect financial businesses operate, transact, interact and collaborate with their consumers, markets, and regulators. AI innovates new and intelligent FinTech for more efficient, convenient, personalized, explainable, secure and proactive financial products and services. To achieve these, on one hand, AI technologies including knowledge representation, machine learning, pattern recognition, signal processing, data analytics, computer vision, natural language processing, biometrics, and computational intelligence evolve to cultivate FinTech. On the other, FinTech is driving new AI research and innovation.
This Special Track on AI in FinTech seeks to stimulate the discussion, research and applications on AI for FinTech. We solicit quality papers on the state-of-the-art theoretical research, visionary opinion, and practical advancements of AI in FinTech. Topics include but not limited to:
- Analyzing complex couplings, dependencies, interactions, relations and networking in finance
- Analyzing regional and global financial activities, behaviors, events and their impact and risk
- Analyzing and representation of financial businesses, networks, systems and problems
- Jointly modelling natural, online, social, economic, cultural and political factors in finance
