Professor Lilia Maliar (GC/Economics) was awarded a $308,000, three-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for her research on using artificial intelligence to analyze complex and highly dimensional economic models.

Her research has interesting applications in FinTech and beyond.

Maliar is developing a deep learning framework that makes it possible to cast a broad class of economic models into a form that is suitable for intelligent machines — an approach that opens a new path in economic research. “AI has many impressive applications like image and speech recognition, composing music, and playing chess and Go”
