The state of ML in the Capital Markets and key steps to progressing ML in your firm – 24 March, 1:00pm GMT

  • How is ML being used today? What are the key applications?
  • Where has ML been most effective in the financial sector, where will it be in future?
  • When it comes to explainability and what regulators and clients are looking, what are the main impediments, challenges and opportunities?
  • What are the common mistakes made that lead to wasted effort when it comes to ML development? How can you make ML more efficient?
  • Is there a talent gap across the financial services industry when it comes to hiring engineers with AI backgrounds? Will remote work and a more spread-out workforce help to solve the talent gap, or exacerbate the disjointedness of ML development?
