A research workshop by Prof. Anirban Chakraborti Professor, Jawaharlal Nehru University (Currently on leave) Dean Research, BML Munjal University was held on July 12, 2022.
Topic – Uses of data science in Economics and Finance
Description of the workshop topic
Systems ranging from an economy to financial markets can be described as ‘complex systems’ as they are dynamic, evolving, emergent and interconnected. There exist a wide variety of quantitative and qualitative behaviour that complex systems demonstrate, making it increasingly difficult to decipher them. In this workshop, we will take a data science approach to understand complex socio-economic systems, and use interdisciplinary techniques such as machine learning, network theory, agent-based modelling, etc.
