Transforming lives through technology.
FAIC vision is to facilitate the building of effective
AI solutions in a FinTech context via a multidisciplinary effort where different experts contribute their expertise from different areas.
It involves a rethink of the traditional methods we currently use to build software as they need to be adapted to become a collaborative effort between multidisciplinary domain experts and software development/data management teams. FAIC will bring together fragmented academic research areas under one roof and act as a facilitator for multidisciplinary teams from both business and computing fields working in agile/flexible ways and contributing new methods and techniques for building and managing AI Systems.
UNSW is ranked among the top 50 universities globally and FAIC involves internationally recognised researchers working together across the Engineering and Business faculties, both are top-ranked in Australia.
UNSW was a lead participant in the Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre (CMCRC) in the early 2000s and has continuously engaged with the financial sector via applied multidisciplinary IT-related research studies.
FAIC has established a multi-vendor cloud technology infrastructure for experimentation involving several industry partners notably AWS, Databricks and BrewAI.
FAIC has acquired a wide range of datasets to support research activities in modelling and sharing domain knowledge and processing large amounts of data.
FAIC is unique in its focus on applying software engineering techniques for building effective AI solutions for real-world problems. It investigates new ways of incorporating explainability, trust and responsibility in relation to AI systems in a Fintech context.
At FAIC, we believe that AI is the future of finance, and we're committed to staying at the forefront of this exciting and rapidly evolving field. Join us on this journey and discover what's possible when you have the power of AI at your fingertips.
