Artificial Intelligence News & Topics

Artificial Intelligence (AI) takes many forms for the trading industry including electronic trading, quantitative trading strategies, algorithmic trading development and research, risk, compliance, and management. AI refers to simulated intelligence using computer programs. These programs are designed to “think” for the purposes of achieving some tasks. For CloudQuant this task is typically determining a trading signal to initiate an investment or to close out an investment.

Forms of AI include rules-based programming, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning.

CloudQuant Thoughts: The points that Mr. Kaufman makes on the instant availability of "noise" is very interesting. We don't consider this to be noise at CloudQuant.
