Although RPA tools make significant strides, automating routine tasks and allowing humans to focus on more sophisticated ones, yet, they can’t adjust their procedures to self-execution without human help. On the other hand, there are natural language processing tools, with all their power to finally automate routine tasks.
Working in unison with RPA, artificial intelligence solutions “rethink” the ways companies…Continue

In my previous post, I introduced the ELAINE Community Tool that can be used to discover variables from textual communications.
Statistical predictors work well for charting the course of economic activities based on macro factors that elicit supply and demand if the market environment is within a close proximity of a pattern that resembles previous economic cycles. Unfortunately, in today’s geo-political environment, many of these new variables are injecting forces that…Continue

Deep Learning is picking momentum in Quantitative Finance, outside the obvious application to the prediction of asset prices (where to my knowledge it is not particularly effective) and spreading into the more serious application area of option pricing and risk management.
These two recent papers clearly demonstrate the benefits of DL as a pricing technology alternative to the classical FDM and Monte-Carlo in certain contexts:…Continue
