A conversation with Quants, Thinkers and Innovators all challenged to innovate in turbulent times!
Join QuantUniversity for a complimentary summer speaker series where you will hear from Quants, innovators, startups and Fintech experts on various topics in Quant Investing, Machine Learning, Optimization, Fintech, AI etc.
Topic: Machine Learning and Model Risk (With a focus on Neural Network Models)
All models are wrong and when they are wrong they create financial or non-financial risks. Understanding, testing and managing model failures are the key focus of model risk management particularly model validation.
For machine learning models, particular attention is made on how to manage model fairness, explainability, robustness and change control. In this presentation, I will focus the discussion on machine learning explainability and robustness. Explainability is critical to evaluate conceptual soundness of models particularly for the applications in highly regulated institutions such as banks. There are many explainability tools available and my focus in this talk is how to develop fundamentally interpretable models.
Neural networks (including Deep Learning), with proper architectural choice, can be made to be highly interpretable models. Since models in production will be subjected to dynamically changing environments, testing and choosing robust models against changes are critical, an aspect that has been neglected in AutoML.
