Why You Should Attend

The Future of Market Structure: Rise of the Machines

About the course:

10 years ago, the Rise of the Machines (aka high frequency trading algorithms and artificial intelligence) completely altered the terrain of what we call the Capital Markets. Not only are today's markets something the human traders of a generation ago would fail to recognize, they're no longer a place where human actions of any sort have much of a remaining role. The digitalization of the workplace gives organizations a new set of options for getting work done. It’s time to move beyond alarmist rhetoric about market automation and consider how human-machine collaboration can deliver a higher level of productivity. The question to ask isn’t how many finance jobs will be replaced by artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics, but how work can be reconfigured in order to achieve the optimal integration of talent and machines. From liquidity improvements, to big data, to settlement technology, and blockchain, we are now in a new wave of automation, and AI in the capital markets is here to stay.
