Diverse Applications of AI in Finance, Prashant Reddy, PhD, JP Morgan, UofC
Join the New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Institute for Data Science for the Spring 2021 Seminar Series bringing together scientists, engineers, and users to develop data-driven technologies to solve real-world problems.
About this Event
Many aspects of finance, especially in complex trading domains, have been driven by numerical methods for many decades. However, with recent advances in deep learning, there has been strong interest not only in machine learning, but also in broader AI approaches such as knowledge representation, constrained optimization and planning, game theory, NLP, human-robot interaction and model explainability. In this talk, I will present a diverse set of research areas and applications being pursued at J.P. Morgan, including examples of deep reinforcement leaning in multi-agent systems. The goal of the talk is to not only demonstrate new approaches to well-understood problems in finance, but to also highlight exciting new opportunities in areas such as synthetic data generation, cryptography and AI fairness.
