Why Emerging Technologies & Alternative Data
Disruption is here, and the world of finance is at its epicenter. Investment professionals need to upgrade their skill set to ensure their relevance in this new investment paradigm. Many businesses that are being disrupted by emerging technologies (i.e. artificial intelligence, alternative data, blockchain, digital media) will be addressed. The panelists for this conference will discuss the most thought-provoking themes, salient trends, and biggest investment opportunities that are revolutionizing various businesses and the way we perceive them. Our machine intelligence discussion includes artificial intelligence, deep learning, machine learning and their applications. Among other topics, we will also be addressing a rapidly expanding world of alternative data with the goal to better comprehend the value of companies and beyond.
These emerging technologies and alternative data are becoming more critical in all sectors of our economy. Innovative investment managers increasingly seek unstructured alternative data sources to help them outperform their peers by reaching the best insights the fastest. Alternative data includes such actionable sources as satellite images, social media feeds, logistics, credit card sales, mobile geolocation data, and sentiment data which are utilized by artificial intelligence techniques such as deep learning and reinforcement learning. These will become increasingly essential tools for those seeking new alpha or enhancing existing alpha in investment management as well as to those eager to augment and speed up their operational processes.
The conference can assist you to create a road-map for your next venture with lessons learnt from those who have it done before, and give you a chance to ask questions and learn from experts. Having a blueprint to implementation, a plan to scale-up and the right talent in place is critical to ensure your project results in the anticipated ROI. Managers and companies which devote resources in these areas will benefit from an "informational" edge.

WINDOWS TO INNOVATION 2018
VENUE - The Cutting Room
44 East 32nd Street, New York City (map)
A unique expansion from our core topic - fantastic forays into live entertainment after the panel discussions on Monday evening November 5th will not only augment the learning exchange but help provide an experience for all attendees far beyond traditional networking. Similar to City Winery, our last year’s conference venue, The Cutting Room is not a hotel. The typical conference distractions (concierge, bell hops, that always-present plethora of tourists) will not interfere with the focus, or the fun. The acoustics are superb, with no second guessing as to what was just said from either panel members or those with comments and questions.
Our conferences include evening live entertainment. Upon completion of panel discussions on Monday November 5th, we will provide exquisite entertainment for attendees to enjoy a variety of shows. We strongly believe that an inspirational and stimulating environment enhances the networking experience among conference participants.
