The business school, together with the three biggest local tech communities – Frankfurt Data Science, FinTech in and around Frankfurt and Artificial Intelligence Frankfurt will gather experts and students in the field of data science at FS. The event will give insights about how artificial intelligence will change the financial industry and whether fintechs will be key players in the future. Furthermore, the experts will discuss how machine learning and deep learning will impact economy and society as a whole.

Moreover, Professor Wheeler is director of the Frankfurt School Centre for Human and Machine Intelligence. The think tank conducts basic and applied research at the intersection of artificial intelligence & machine learning, decision and social science, and finance and management.
