Factor Models, Machine Learning and Asset Prices - AQR, Yale University, University of Chicago

We survey recent methodological contributions in asset pricing using factor models and machine learning. We organize these results based on their primary objectives: estimating expected returns, factors, risk exposures, risk premia, and the stochastic discount factor, as well as model comparison and alpha testing. We also discuss a variety of asymptotic schemes for inference.
