The conference featured speaker sessions from industry and academic leaders, master classes on MATLAB delivered by senior MathWorks engineers, MathWorks demo stations, and MathWorks partner booths.
Our Chief Data Scientist’s session was on the topic of "Exploiting Alternative Data in the Investment Process". The emergence of big data in finance has shifted the alpha focus away from being faster to being smarter and more efficient than the competition. Access to alternative data sources is considered a key input to such a process. During his talk, Peter Hafez will provide an overview of the changing investment landscape. He also covered some of his team's latest research in the space.
MathWorks also demonstrated how to incorporate RavenPack data into MATLAB. The RavenPack team showcased our platform which allows us to make our data accessible to all as an on-demand service.
