Attendees will enjoy three leading-edge paper presentations. The conference will kick off with an introduction of a custom algorithm for better extracting meaning from financial text, then transition into a broad exploration of the potential and challenges surrounding the use of artificial intelligence in robo-advising. The morning will conclude with research considering the disproportionate impact of big data on the price informativeness of large versus small firms, as well as its effect on large firms’ lower cost of capital.

Our Keynote Lecture on an emerging topic in data science: causality, or causal inference. The day will begin with an overview of the concept, then move on to cover examples of how investors currently apply causality. Finally, there will be a panel conversation on implementing data science in investment management.
