Prof. Al Naqvi

AIAI Principal Investigator Professor Naqvi's Pioneering Work in Artificial Intelligence

Professor Naqvi’s work is focused on applying deep learning to study advanced models of financial engineering, portfolio management, and asset management. He uses a unique approach that combines complex adaptive systems, behavioral finance, game theory, and real options to design state of the art artificial intelligence system to predict stock movements and financial market performance. Specifically, Professor Naqvi’s model closes the gap between operating decisions of a firm (for example Supply Chain Management) and its financial decision-making (for example, Capital and Capital Structure). Such models can be used to study the performance and competitive dynamics of companies, industries, and national economies.

Al Naqvi specializes in building AI companies, products, national strategy, business and agency models, and research centers. He is CEO and Professor at the American Institute of Artificial Intelligence. Under his leadership, American AI offers AI and Machine Learning training programs, conducts sophisticated research, and is developing stealth products.

The rise of artificial intelligence is nothing short of a technological revolution. AI is poised to completely transform accounting and auditing professions, yet its current application within these areas is limited and fragmented. Existing AI implementations tend to solve very narrow business issues, rather than serving as a powerful tech framework for next-generation accounting. Artificial Intelligence for Audit, Forensic Accounting, and Valuation provides a strategic viewpoint on how AI can be comprehensively integrated within audit management, leading to better automated models, forensic accounting, and beyond.

The rise of artificial intelligence is nothing short of a technological revolution. AI is poised to completely transform asset management and investment banking, yet its current application within the financial sector is limited and fragmented. Existing AI implementations tend to solve very narrow business issues, rather than serving as a powerful tech framework for next-generation finance. Artificial Intelligence for Asset Management and Investment provides a strategic viewpoint on how AI can be comprehensively integrated within investment finance, leading to evolved performance in compliance, management, customer service, and beyond.

On the commercial side, artificial intelligence applications are powering many sectors. Globally, governments are exploring how to comprehend, incorporate, apply, and use artificial intelligence technologies. The scope of government use of artificial intelligence technology goes beyond that of commercial organizations and is far more complex. In government, the challenges will be as follows: (1) How can governments use artificial intelligence technology to improve their efficiencies? (2) How can governments become more citizen-centric, service based, accessible, and responsive? (3) How can governments protect their citizens from the misuse of artificial intelligence (e.g., alleged Russian bots' interference in U.S. elections)? (4) How can governments use artificial intelligence technology to make better policy decisions and avoid wrong decisions (economic, social etc.)?

As the artificial intelligence revolution sweeps through the global economy, nothing is more important than pure play leadership. Using a fable, “The Beaver Bot of Yellowstone” guides business leaders on how to lead their firms through the mysterious and complex cognitive transformation. Anyone can master the game with pure play leadership rules. In a reading that lasts no more than a one-way Chicago–DC flight, “The Beaver Bot of Yellowstone” helps leaders who don’t have the time or the patience to read thousands of pages of research and theses to get to the bottom of the leadership principles for the cognitive era.

As the cognitive revolution sweeps the business world, this book is the first guide for Human Resources professionals on how to navigate through the artificial intelligence transformation. A non-technical book, it is meant for HR strategy leaders. A concise guide on how to develop an integrated vision for the Human Resources department and on how to formulate a plan for leading the artificial intelligence revolution, this book is the first book on the topic. The book presents a comprehensive plan and orchestrates a strategy to embrace and lead. The book introduces AIHR (Artificial Intelligence Human Resources) and the concept of MAHRM (Machine and Human Resources Management).

Technological breakthroughs relating to artificial intelligence has redefined business operations worldwide. For example, the ways in which data is captured, processed, and utilized to optimize customer interactions has grown by leaps and bounds. The change is redefining the structural dynamics of business strategy, economic theory, and management concepts. Leading technology companies around the world have expanded their research in artificial intelligence. With IBM’s launch of Watson, a new cognitive era has started. Investment firms have backed numerous emerging artificial intelligence companies. Meanwhile, there is paucity of academic and business research on the subject. This book project is a pioneering examination of how artificial intelligence is transforming the contemporary business strategy.

Taming the Ticker uses a behavioral finance approach to create shareholder value by understanding, incorporating and actively using shareholder expectations in both operational and financing decisions. An expectations centric framework for fundamentals based investing.
