Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI & ML) are said to “predict the future through analysing the past” — the Holy Grail of the finance sector. They can replicate cognitive decisions made by humans yet avoid the behavioural biases inherent in humans.

Processing news and social media data, classifying (market) sentiment and how it impacts Financial Markets is a growing area of research. The field has recently progressed further with many new “alternative” data sources, such as email receipts, credit/debit card transactions, weather, geo-location, satellite data, Twitter, Micro-blogs and search engine results. AI & ML are gaining adoption in the financial services industry especially in the context of compliance, investment decisions and risk management.

This unique conference comes to Hong Kong from years of success in London and other international locales. It will help people to demystify the buzz around AI, Machine Learning and Sentiment Analysis.
