Strengthening European financial service providers through applicable reinforcement learning

  • Host institution: University of Twente.

  • Starting month: M3.

  • Duration: 36 months.

  • Pillar 1: Introduction to AI for financial applications (WU Vienna University of Economics and Business, 4 ECTs), Work Package 2

  • Work Packages Included: WP2, WP6, WP7, WP8


Reinforcement Learning (RL) has become popular for automating uncertain decision-making in complex environments. Deep reinforcement learning can make impressive algorithmic decisions in closed environments, but real-world applications in open environments are harder. This project examines how RL can advance digital finance.

Expected Results

The project will address several RL implementation issues in digital finance. Utility-based RL deliverables will improve financial decision-making by developing multi-criteria analysis, extreme scenarios, and risk management methods. RL in decision-support will be optimised for explainability, regulatory compliance, model abstractions, and human judgement. We will also examine technological challenges like Digital Twin environments, machine learning pipelines, and digital finance ecosystem integration.

Planned Secondments

  • Cardo AI (CAR), Altin Kadareja (CEO), M6, 18 months, applied research on Fintech innovations with Deep learning

  • European Central Bank (ECB), Lukasz Kubicki, M27, 4 months, training on EU principles, supervision policies and research
