Date: 21st July 2021

Time: 10.00 EST / 1500 BST / 16.00 CET

Duration: 1 hour

Miquel Noguer I Alonso PhD founder of Artificial Intelligence in Finance Institute (AIFI) and two other Faculty Members will have a conversation on the 21st of July 10.00 am EST 2021 about AI and the future of quantitative finance. Quantitative Finance is modelling financial asset returns and risks, portfolio allocation, price options and model volatility and model ESG investing.

Al these areas require the use of advanced algorithms and different combinations of datasets, high and low frequencies, numerical and categorical variables, structured and unstructured data, time series and cross sectional data with highly multidimensional spaces and potentially non-stationary environments.

Traditional econometrics models, factor models option and volatility pricing models as well as portfolio optimization approaches have been used to deal with all these challenges.

Machine learning, Reinforcement Learning and Natural Language processing offer new tools for quants to build financial engineering models to deal with these issues. We will explore in a panel session how these new tools are and will be used in different contexts.

We will cover in detail all these topics in our AIFI Summer Bootcamp from 23rd of August to the 3rd of September 2021. Delegates can then pass the AIFI certification.
