Coming into its 6th edition, the AI & Data Science in Trading Virtual Event brings together experts in the use of AI and advanced data analytic techniques within asset management, primarily for finding alpha, managing risk and optimizing portfolios. In the absence of physical events and typically located in NY and London, we’ve now created our first virtual event, free to attend worldwide for the whole AIDST community.

Join two days of content online, with technology simulating a real-life exhibition hall and conference theatre with dedicated networking opportunities. Learn from over 40 industry thought-leaders from hedge funds, asset managers and investment banks, as they share their knowledge and experience on how to use AI to tailor your investment decision-making.

During the event, you’ll be able to listen to inspiring keynotes, vigorous panel debates, network with other attendees, be a part of Live Q&As and set up one-to-one meetings with your colleagues, customers and suppliers.

Why You Can’t Miss AIDST 2021?

• Provocative panels with varied panellists provide dynamic discussions on the most innovative AI tools and techniques as well as topics that are usually proprietary
• Virtual networking opportunities, birds of a feather sessions and virtual booth showcases with over 2000 AI/ML experts within the industry
• Practical and tangible solutions from other asset managers, hedge funds and IBs on how they are utilising AI to inform their data-driven decisions
