Analytics and AI Experts

Analytics and AI are not new at the Warrington College of Business. The College is home to more than 40 faculty members with research or teachings interest directly related to analytics and AI, and that number is only growing. Their research and teaching focuses on the analysis of large volumes of corporate, social media, stock market and electronic commerce data using cutting-edge methods. They also contribute to a growing body of research on social implications of analytics and AI, such as the governance of AI for corporate digital responsibility, AI’s role in structural bias in decision making in several domains.
