The current state of the art in machine learning relies on past patterns and correlations to make predictions of the future. This approach can work in static environments and for closed problems with fixed rules. However, it does not work for financial time-series and other dynamic systems. In order to make consistently accurate predictions about the future, and to achieve true artificial intelligence, the development of new science that enables machines to understand cause and effect is required. This talk will present the power of Causal AI to transform the financial industry by presenting use-cases of Casual AI already adding value in the field, including examples from credit to asset management & trading.
