Online seminar – Artificial Intelligence and Systemic Risk @ FBF Online Platform
Oct 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Participation free, registration mandatory

Register here  

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing how the financial system is operated, taking over core functions because of cost savings and operational efficiencies. AI will assist both risk managers and microprudential authorities. By the same token AI has also the potential to destabilise the financial system, creating new tail risks and amplifying existing ones due to procyclicality, endogenous complexity, optimisation against the system and the need to trust the AI engine.

In this online seminar, Professor Jón Daníelsson, Director of the Systemic Risk Centre at the London School of Economics, will discuss this topic on the basis of the most recent results of his research, published in a paper in June 2019. The presentation will be followed by the intervention of a discussant and a Q&A session with the public.

Drawing on his newly released monograph Currency, Credit and Crisis: Central Banking in Ireland and Europe (Cambridge University Press, May 2019), Patrick Honohan, former Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland, will re-examine the role of the ECB in managing the euro area crisis, pointing to some analytical flaws and missed opportunities both at the level of monetary policy, and, beyond that, in regard to national bank resolution and fiscal adjustment.

The presentation will be followed by comments by George Papaconstantinou, former Finance Minister and Minister of Environment and Energy of Greece and part-time professor at the European University Institute’s School of Transnational Governance and by Maria Ana Barata, 4th year PhD Researcher at the European University Institute. The online seminar will be closed by a Q&A session with the public.
