Edinburgh University | Trader 2.0: How is Machine Learning Transforming the Trading Desk?

Date: Thursday 27th May

Time: 1pm - 2pm

This panel will bring together industry leaders from the banking and asset management industries to discuss how the growing use of machine learning is changing the nature of work on the trading desk. The panel will look at the skills set required,  whether machine learning is "replacing" human decision-making, or instead is changing where in the trading or investment process it is needed; and how the practice of risk management changes when trading decisions are automated.

Speakers:

Dr Taylor Spears, Chancellor’s Fellow and Deputy Director, MSc in Finance, Technology, and Policy, University of Edinburgh Business School (Chair)

Dr Sonia Schulenburg, Founder, CEO, and Director, Level E Research Limited

Dr Gabor Zala, Managing Director, Derivatives and Structured Products, Commerzbank AG

Dr Paulina Ziembińska, Vice President, Trading Research, BlackRock
