This course studies the impact of recent technological innovations in the financial sector. We first study developments in digital money, ledgers, and payment systems. We then study the use of big data and artificial intelligence in the provision of credit. Finally, we explore different possible futures for how the overall financial sector could be organized. Throughout the course, students will learn both the underlying economics of fintech as well as practical statistical tools for developing new fintech products. The recent financial innovations will also be put into their historical, social and ethical context.
