The sea-change in artificial intelligence over the last few years resulted from a bet, placed in a couple of university and industrial labs a decade ago, that a sleepy line of research could come to life with a lot of data and a lot of computational resources.
The results have surprised even the most ardent supporters, and the subsequent deployments of working AI systems have by turns captivated and alarmed the public. Both the power and limitations of these systems are difficult to appreciate, which is an obstacle to informed public debate and the shrewd use of these tools in business and government.
Nearly all jobs in finance and management will be touched by AI, but relatively few will be completely eliminated. Instead, one should think of tasks being replaced by AI, rather than jobs, which will place a premium on people knowing where and how this technology can be deployed. There are also many societal, ethical, and legal issues that arise, and tomorrow’s business leaders must be attuned to the implications of this technology in these areas.
The Centre for Human and Machine Intelligence, HMI, conducts basic and applied research at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Decision & Social Science, and Finance & Management. Our focus is to develop and advance our understanding of computational systems that augment human capabilities for judgment and decision-making.
The principal aims of the HMI are:
Gregory Wheeler is Professor of Theoretical Philosophy and Computer Science at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. Gregory’s research interests in theoretical philosophy and computer science center on reasoning under conditions of uncertainty, with a focus on the foundations of probability, statistics, and machine learning.

“Disruption“ belongs to the most used expressions in connection to the rapidly progressing Digitalisation. Applications such as Blockchain and Big Data are already driving the acceleration of business models and processes. Artificial Intelligence and the need to continuously assess its potential and risks are increasingly prevalent in everyday business life at a growing pace.
We help you identify and make the most of new parameters – guiding and supporting you through the many processes of change in seminars, certification courses, workshops and individual coaching sessions.
The recent wave of innovation in Artificial intelligence (AI) has enormous disruptive potential, but there is a decided shortage of professionals capable of harnessing the power of the latest modelling techniques and moving AI from the drawing board into real life. Learn more
As more and more Blockchain based applications evolve, an in-depth knowledge of the underlying technologies is becoming indispensable. Equipped with this knowledge, you can leverage Blockchain opportunities to build your company’s digital future. Learn more
Machine Learning, Disruption, Fourth Industrial Revolution or Blockchain are just some of the terms we encounter in the context of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In order to implement the technology successfully, it is first of all necessary to find out how it can explicitly benefit your company and your customers. Learn more
The AI Lab belongs to the AI Initiative at Frankfurt School and shows the university's commitment to this topic. It is the home for artificial intelligence and digital transformation at FS.
Here, innovation-oriented and collaborative students, employees, faculty members and partners come together. The AI Lab is a hub for projects and topics within AI, ranging from machine learning and deep learning to image recognition and natural language processing. From internal digitalisation projects to external tech events, the AI Lab offers a designated space for open and collaborative learning and working, both on a department level and institution wide.
Frankfurt School’s ProcessLab research center focuses on applied research on process management in the finance industry. A team of researchers from the areas of process management, organizational behavior, and information systems addresses various research questions around on how to manage, improve, and innovate business processes in banks, insurance companies, and other firms from the financial services sector. This does also involve the utilization of new digital approaches and technologies, such as process mining/analytics, process robotics, or blockchain.
The ProcessLab does also organize the annual ProcessLab conference, one of the largest German industry events on process management in the financial industry; this year’s conference theme is “From Digital to Smart Processes – Analytics, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence”.
