The 14th INQUIRE UK Business School Seminar organised with University College London will took place on Monday 10th June 2019 in London.
Partnering with the computer science department at UCL for this event gave Inquire members an opportunity to hear from strong scientists, bringing innovation and in-depth research in a field where it is essential to distinguish between genuine results and empty claims. They shared how their research can be applied to finance and investment management.
In particular we will saw presentations on Machine Learning and NLP methods applied to Investment Management by experts such as Tomaso Aste (UCL), Stephen Roberts (Oxford University), Nick Firoozye (UCL/ExodusPoint), Craig Lewis, Jan Witte (UCL) and further thought on how to take climate risk into account by Stefano Battiston (University of Zurich).
Presentations were also complemented by a Young Quant Event, giving us the opportunity to listen to fresh ideas from students on new investment models, strategy, data source, and applying machine learning techniques in an innovative way. In this new initiative Inquire seeks to bring new emerging talent in contact with Inquire and its sponsor firms.
