High performance gaming and artificial intelligence computing giant NVIDIA launched its Deep Learning Institute (DLI) last year, and is now offering the first courses on applying this technology to the finance vertical. One of the first deep learning lab courses focusing specifically on the domain of capital markets trading will be taking place on 5 December at Newsweek's AI and Data Science in Capital Markets event in New York (places are limited). Andy Steinbach, head of AI in financial services and senior director at NVIDIA, explained: "There's not a lot of academic research that shows how to take these neural network techniques and adapt them to finance.

"We set out to develop labs that would show how to marry the basic building blocks like auto-encoders, recurrent neural networks, reinforcement learning, with very relevant finance problems like algorithmic trading, statistical arbitrage, optimising trade execution, and so we have done … [Read more...] about NVIDIA teaches the world about deep learning in finance
