The Evolution of Enterprise Model Risk Management

"Model risk management is the art of handling the inherent uncertainty related to mathematical modelling. We create algorithms for many different reasons. In the past, most models were built to study the evolution of dynamical systems (e.g. a credit risk model or a valuation model). Models were often created via a first-principles approach with analytical tractability in mind. Nowadays, ML models are everywhere, impacting both our individual behaviour and changing the dynamics of entire societies."
