RESEARCH

We emphasize and encourage links between academic researchers and practitioners at financial institutions to bring theoretical techniques to bear on real-world issues.

Technology Disruption and Innovations

Technology disruptions to the financial sector have the potential to impact individuals, disrupt economies, and destabilize governments. Digitalization and technological advances are challenging the way financial institutions operate and creating new consumer expectations.

Financial institutions need to change and adapt in response to these expectations with alternative product offerings and services. GRI understands this demand to stay current and is dedicated to empowering our member institutions with the latest information to stay abreast on developing Fintech innovations; gaining insight on their capabilities, understand their risks and identify the opportunities.


A Resource Estimation Framework for Quantum Attacks Against Cryptographic Functions

“A Resource Estimation Framework for Quantum Attacks Against Cryptographic Functions” provides an update on our ongoing work related to estimating the real-world effort it will take for a quantum computer to compromise specific cryptographic functions at the foundation of protecting our ICT infrastructure.

AI Frontiers: Where We are Today and the Risks and Benefits of An AI Enabled Future

“Artificial Intelligence” is a very powerful narrative. In fact, today, many leading thinkers envision a future where machines surpass humans in intelligence. In Part One of our two part series, we assess of the potential near term risks and benefits of Artificial Intelligence. Later, in Part Two, we explore how AI is expected to impact Financial Services and what specific use-cases we expect to see over the next 1-3 years.

How Natural Language Processing is Reshaping the World of Finance

Natural Language Processing is a sub-section of the artificial intelligence domain that is focused on teaching computers to understand natural human languages. NLP encompasses a range of theory-motivated computational techniques which attempt to address the disconnect between human and computer languages.
