The Cutter Business Technology Journal published an article on Jan. 19 by seven S&T faculty in business and information technology. The article is titled “Fintech Empowerment: Data Science, AI, and Machine Learning.”

Authors are:

  • Keng Siau, chair and professor
  • Michael Hilgers, professor
  • Langtao Chen, assistant professor
  • Steve Liu, assistant professor
  • Fiona Nah, professor
  • Richard Hall, professor
  • Barry Flachsbart, professor

The article discusses how data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning are affecting the evolution of “fintech,” the technologies used to deliver financial services. After presenting fintech’s competitive advantages in combination with these other advanced technologies, the article posits that financial institutions that don’t move forward with the innovations will be eliminated from the marketplace.

To help students stay competitive with disruptive innovations, Missouri S&T now offers an undergraduate fintech minor and a graduate fintech certificate.

The Cutter Business Technology Journal delivers market insights from global business and thought leaders, researchers and practitioners on the strategies that help organizations keep pace with continuous innovation and transformation.
