Webinar – The New Frontier – AI Driven Credit Score

The Rutgers Business School Virtual Lunch & Learn Series presents Assistant Professor of Professional Practice Merav Ozair discussing how AI can replace the FICO system for deriving a more authentic credit score and in real-time; and how such algorithms should be mindful of any biases.

Have you ever received an email after visiting a random website about their services and products? Or your smartphone suggesting new applications for you?

No matter what internet service we use, our activities are being tracked and cataloged. Whether it’s purchases we make on the Apple store or Amazon or which videos we watch or articles we read – we are being monitored, tracked and assessed, in real-time! This is all driven by algorithms developed by companies mainly for marketing and business operations.

If all of our activities – economic or otherwise – are being tracked, then why not use this information to derive a real-time, authentic credit score? The Apple credit card, operated by Goldman Sachs, is an example of such an attempt.

Dr. Merav Ozair is a data scientist, a quant strategist and a Crypto/Blockchain expert. She has in-depth knowledge and experience in global financial markets and their market microstructure.
