Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Artificial intelligence (AI) is regarded as the science and technology for producing an intelligent machine—particularly, an intelligent computer program. Machine learning is an approach to realize AI and is a collection of statistical algorithms. Because of the rapid development of computer technology, machine learning has been actively explored for a variety of academic and practical purposes in financial markets. This Special Issue focuses on the broad topic of “AI and Financial Markets” and includes novel research associated with this topic. Articles on the application of AI to financial markets are welcome.

The Special Issue could include contributions on the application of AI to asset return forecasting, volatility forecasting, portfolio allocation, market risk, credit analysis, and so on.
