Recorded in Bloomberg's London offices in November 2019:
We first provide a mini-tutorial on Adjoint Algorithmic Differentiation (AAD) (also known as back-propagation in machine learning). We then illustrate how neural networks may be used to compute dynamic values and risks of trading books with applications to risk management of derivatives, valuation adjustments (XVA), counterpart credit risk, FRTB and SIMM margin valuation adjustments (MVA). We also describe new techniques to substantially improve deep learning on simulated data, and…Continue
Automatic Adjoint Differentiation (AAD) and back-propagation are key technologies in modern machine learning and finance. It is back-prop that enables deep neural networks to learn to identify faces on photographs in reasonable time. It is AAD that allows financial institutions to compute the risks of complex derivatives books in real time. The two technologies share common roots.
