Making Deep Learning relevant to Investment Management

Despite steady progress in the fields of Machine Learning and Data Science, on balance the Investment Management industry has been cautious about embracing these new technologies - for very good reasons. In this talk the CEO of ForecastThis, Dr. Justin Washtell-Blaise, will illustrate some important ways in which Deep Learning and related techniques are helping to close this gap.

Justin earned his PhD in Computational Semantics and MSc in Multidisciplinary Informatics from the University of Leeds. He has extensive expertise in the development and application of machine learning methods, having led R&D and Data Science teams on various challenging problems, including data science automation, loan risk modeling, fraud detection and commodity and retail price forecasting.
