RISE OF THE MACHINE: TRADING IN A DIGITAL WORLD
Join ACI UK and UBS on June 26 2019 to debate the rise and rise of automation, algos and AI in the trading room. This event will kick off with a keynote presentation “Are Robots Taking My Job?” by Mark Goodman, Head of Electronic Execution, UBS, followed by a cross-industry panel debate on the impact of increased ‘electronification’ on market liquidity, regulation and behaviour.
“….there is no deep difference between what can be achieved by a biological brain and what can be achieved by a computer. It therefore follows that computers can, in theory, emulate human intelligence — and exceed it” Professor Stephen Hawking
Moderated by industry ‘legend’ Gavin Wells, our panel includes James O’Connor, Head of FX & MM Desk, Bank of England; Richard Turner, Senior Trader, Insight Investment; Nicolas Bader, GIC and Dr Pierre Vermaak, Executive Director, Strategic Development Lab, Quants, UBS.
