Move fast without breaking the bank: AI model risk management

The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) is on the rise across the globe. This is especially true for the financial sector where data is abundant, and applications and techniques are wide-ranging. The adoption of AI/ML brings great opportunities to improve products and services with significant cost reductions. However, the use of sophisticated and complex techniques for important tasks also brings risks, for organizations as well as for individuals.
The talk by Søren Mørk is a field report from the bleeding edge of AI model risk management. Model risk management is a central tool used by financial institutions to manage financial weapons of math destruction, from the pricing of exotic derivatives to calculations of capital. This tool, if sharpened somewhat, is central for also managing the risk associated with AI, in the financial sector, and elsewhere.
His talk gives a brief status report on the use of AI/ML in the financial sector, the risks associated herewith, its main risk drivers, and the key principles underlying the management of those risks.
