RavenPack Presenters

Armando Gonzalez, CEO

Day One: 12:00pm - Armando's stand alone presentation, titled "Big Data is the New Currency", is the way data is collected, anonymized and monetized largely without the owner’s permission is ready to be disrupted providing many benefits to hedge fund data buyers. This presentation provides a pathway for the individual to control and share in the value their data creates, and for data users to gain access to richer more specific data sets.

Peter Hafez, Chief Data Scientist

Day One: 4:40pm - Peter will participate on a panel discussion titled "Understanding the very latest developments in NLP: What is the current state of play, and how can you benefit from incorporating it into your investment strategy?" Covering the following:

  • Rule based NLP vs deep learning, i.e. relying on human intervention and ingesting touches of augmented AI rules to better detect key elements of languages in a proper NLP system
  • Using proprietary deep tech and being early adopters of new technologies as opposed to relying on open source
  • The challenges of adapting an English NLP engine to different languages, public sources (such as Twitter that almost has its own language), or thousands of different types of file formats (proprietary textual content from clients)
