The goal of all-inclusive finance is to bring reliable and high quality financial service to everyone everywhere, rich or poor. Machine learning plays a key role in making financial services more accessible affordable secure and sustainable, and hence more inclusive. This requires solving sophisticated technical challenges in the machine learning space involving a diverse range of entities, such as people, small businesses, online platforms, financial institutes and even fraudsters, and over a wide spectrum of domains including graph & structured learning, adversarial learning, privacy-preserving learning, explainable modeling, reinforcement learning, decision making and optimization, etc. In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to the challenges and opportunities on this topic.
