Deep Learning in Finance Summit Comes to Singapore to Discuss Emerging Trends and Opportunitiesby Fintech News Singapore March 8, 2017
Technologies such as big data analytics, neural networks, evolutionary algorithms, and machine learning have revolutionized financial services over the past 20 years. Now, fintech is on the verge of a truly revolutionary moment with the integration of artificial intelligence and deep learning into financial services.
Deep learning is a branch of machine learning based on a set of algorithms that attempt to model high-level abstractions in data. Essentially, it is where a machine uses matrices of artificial neurons to scan through information, look for patterns and make decisions, much like how the human brain operates but at a much faster pace.
Already, deep learning has been applied to many areas of finance. For instance, fintech startup Unfraud leverages artificial intelligence and deep learning technology to analyze big data and prevent online fraud. Another company, Binatix is a deep learning-based trading firm that has developed machine learning algorithms to gather analytic edge in trading.
New York-based Dataminr is a leading real-time information discovery company. Using machine learning algorithms, it transforms real-time data from Twitter and other public sources into actionable signals for clients in the financial sector.
Artificial intelligence, robots and automation will offer new opportunities for human endeavor and new markets will follow. Also Finance Chatbots is a hot topic, some promising example can be found in this blogpost by Strand.
