One of the more intriguing events of the year is AI & Data Science in Trading March 19-20 at the Met Pavilion in NYC. It seems that the agenda is ultimately valuable even outside of trading as it discovers future enterprise value proposition, talent, business models and more.

HOW DOES AI FACTOR INTO YOUR VALUE PROPOSITION?

And so the agenda begins with a take on the very question that’s been bandied about intelligent automation forums for the past few years. Moving forward, are you a financial services company or are you a tech company? This is the ‘survive or die’ question for enterprises the world-over. If you don’t answer it the right way it could mean the end.

Outlook for the hedge fund industry: survival of the leanest or the most tech savvy?

HOW DOES AI FACTOR INTO YOUR FUTURE?

Asset allocation takes the stage to hash out Evaluation, Analysis and Risk moving forward. But while Cerebus’ former Chief of AI is on the panel, it’s only the Risk point that nods at unpacking how artificial intelligence plays into the future.

HOW DOES AI FACTOR INTO YOUR NEW TALENT?

No matter how much buy-in comes from the top, no matter how culturally ready the enterprise is and no matter how well change has been managed, you don’t make it out of tomorrow without top talent. And experienced AI talent is extremely hard to come by these days. Global corporate enterprise is in the process of building the plane- how many people could possibly know how to fly it? The agenda seems to start to answer that question with this session.

HOW DOES AI FACTOR INTO YOUR NEW BUSINESS MODELS?

Quite literally, the Refinitiv, Mizuho, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs panel is the money session of the event– and not only because of the impressive panelists. It’s the focus on how to grow enterprise value through new customer solutions offered by leveraging new tech teams. The caveat is that the bullet points only mention AI in the way of dealing with regulations, but ‘new business models’ is in the topic title itself so panelists will be hard pressed to not offer up some true clues on viable paths forward.

Panel discussion: How are investment banks leveraging their quant and data science teams to build new business models and add value to clients?
