AI in Finance & Algo Trading NYC Meetup


We are excited to announce our first Meetup group event in New York.

We also want to thank our corporate sponsors and speakers from Refinitiv and Beacon Platform.

We have planned for the following agenda:

I. Welcome

II. Talk

Dr. Mark Higgins (Beacon): "Deep Hedging using Neural Networks in Beacon"

Abstract: The JPMorgan QR team invented "deep hedging": training neural networks to give optimal hedges for derivatives portfolios in the presence of transaction costs and unhedgeable risks. We applied that technique to hedging of natural gas storage facilities, implemented through Google TensorFlow in Beacon's Python-based quant platform. This talk describes the results as well as how we did the implementation.

III. Talk

Refinitiv Labs: tbd (data-driven finance, machine learning)

IV. Break

V. Talk

Dr. Yves Hilpisch (TPQ | TAIM): "AI-Powered Algorithmic Trading"

Abstract: The talk explores approaches to use AI, Machine Learning & Deep Learning for market prediction and algorithmic trading. It also discusses the importance of strategy deployment and the application of execution rules to optimize P&L. A demo of The AI Machine platform is given.

VI. Book Raffle & Signing (Python for Finance, 2nd ed., O'Reilly)

VII. Networking, drinks & snacks

We hope to see you in person in New York. Feel free to spread the word!

We have released a Python library for users to access Eikon data directly from any application running on the desktop. This is ideally for testing models and performing data analysis using the capabilities offered by Python. In this session, we will introduce the Eikon Data API, explain cases, and demonstrate the use of Python to retrieve pricing and reference data and news.

Still in its infancy, self-driving technology holds the promise of dramatically reducing traffic-related deaths and injuries, while extending transportation options to a broader audience, from schoolchildren to aging, infirm and physically challenged people who may be unwilling or unable to drive.


As Chief Scientist and Head of Uber’s Advanced Technologies Group, Toronto, Raquel Urtasun is among the top thinkers focusing on AI and machine learning in self-driving vehicle development, a sector that has drawn the attention of—and billions of dollars in investment from—global automakers, suppliers and tech companies.
