Overview

This conference brings together innovators, experts, and practitioners utilizing artificial intelligence, alternative data, data science, and technology to kickoff a series of events focused on the impact of these advances on the world of finance. Artificial Intelligence and methods of analysis such as machine learning, the availability of new data sets, sophisticated computing, and computerized trading have the potential to revolutionize the financial services industry. Investment managers who adopt these new technologies are likely to have an edge.

Nonetheless, with innovation there can be potential setbacks; some data will have no value and complex computing techniques won’t always produce better results. Finding the right balance between human and machine is critical. Though explainable AI in on the horizon, allocators and asset owners may find themselves assessing a blackbox. This event examines the effects of AI-driven methods of analysis, new data sets and increased computing power on finance.
