+
'''Project Description:''' The rise of big data analytics in the financial industry in general and consumer finance in particular is raising old and new issues for public concerns. Issues of moral hazards, discrimination, data manipulation, asymmetric information between lenders and borrowers, privacy, inequality and consumer protection are now being raised and discussed at the EU and the US. Technologies of data collection, automated and algorithmic profiling are changing the landscape of finance. The regulatory response  to these challenge is the focus on this project. It asks how, when and with which methods regulators respond (or should respond) to the new realties of big financial data? How do the US and the EU response differ? How can we explain these differences?

'''Project Description:''' The challenges of the governance and regulation of emerging technologies are increasingly on the public and political agenda. These challenges call for integrative study and cross-technology fertilization that will cover the impact of artificial intelligence on economic sectors from finance via transport to the labor markets.  This project has two aims. First, to challenge the current regulatory governance literature and to refine it with regards to the new challenges and opportunities these technologies offer. Second, to explore the extent in which these new technologies contribute to a further expansion of regulation in general and the regulatory state in particular:

CURRENT Research

1) Big Financial Data and Consumer Interests: Should Regulation be the Answer?

Project Description: The rise of big data analytics in the financial industry in general and consumer finance in particular is raising old and new issues for public concerns. Issues of moral hazards, discrimination, data manipulation, asymmetric information between lenders and borrowers, privacy, inequality and consumer protection are now being raised and discussed at the EU and the US. Technologies of data collection, automated and algorithmic profiling are changing the landscape of finance. The regulatory response to these challenge is the focus on this project. It asks how, when and with which methods regulators respond (or should respond) to the new realties of big financial data? How do the US and the EU response differ? How can we explain these differences?

2) The Regulation and Governance of Emerging Technologies

Project Description: The challenges of the governance and regulation of emerging technologies are increasingly on the public and political agenda. These challenges call for integrative study and cross-technology fertilization that will cover the impact of artificial intelligence on economic sectors from finance via transport to the labor markets. This project has two aims. First, to challenge the current regulatory governance literature and to refine it with regards to the new challenges and opportunities these technologies offer. Second, to explore the extent in which these new technologies contribute to a further expansion of regulation in general and the regulatory state in particular: Publication Planned or in Progress: Revisiting Regulatory Capitalism: The Challenges of Artificial Intelligence, a manuscript under preparation
