Intelligent Autonomous Trading Systems – Are We There Yet?
Over the last two decades, trading has seen a remarkable evolution from open-outcry in the Wall Street pits to screen trading all the way to current automation and high-frequency trading (HFT). The success of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) seems like natural progression for the evolution of trading. However, unlike other fields of AI, trading has some domain specific problems that project the dream of set-it-and-forget-it money making machines still some way in the future. This talk will describe the current challenges for intelligent autonomous trading systems and provides some practical examples where machine learning is already being used in financial applications.
