Applications of Artificial Intelligence in banking, financial services and economics

  • Louis F. Pau
  • Claudio Gianotti


This chapter surveys approximately 250 actual applications development projects carried out by companies and institutions, with specifications of the nature of the AI project goals, of the development environments and of project partners (if known). Of course, owing to the fast changes in the field and to implementation experiences, this list cannot be complete nor exhaustive, and can only be up-to-date as of the manuscript completion. The goal is therefore rather to identify methodological as well as software tools needs resulting from the development projects listed. The application areas covered are: banking, finance, insurance, economics, auditing, commodities trading, tax planning, general management.
