Podcast: Artificial intelligence for capital markets and to stop cyberbullying

In episode 4 of Tech Lightning Rounds, Beth Kindig goes directly to the source of artificial intelligence expertise and hosts discussions with technologists who specialize in the field. Interviews are held in “lightning round” format, which are rapid interviews with tech experts for immediate depth on each topic.

Artificial intelligence makes it possible for machines to learn from experience. To adjust for superior intelligence, the machines are trained as more data is analyzed. Highly publicized uses for AI include chess matches or self-driving cars. The most potent application for artificial intelligence, however, may be the way it’s being used right now across stock markets. Stock trading is a real-life game of chess with unlimited upside if you can master your opponents with machine intelligence: the economy, market volatility, and of course, other stock traders.

Christophe Coutelle of Element AI breaks down two artificial intelligence products being tested in Asia’s stock markets today, including the Portfolio Rebalancer and Trade Scheduler. The first product helps portfolio managers identify which stocks they should be focused on, and also helps to identify the right moment to sell or buy specific stocks.

Beth Kindig, from Intertrust, asks Coutelle if this will provide an advantage to institutional investors over individual investors. Listen to the podcast on iTunes to hear this discussion, plus information on how AI can stop cyber bullying, and why AI will actually improve jobs rather than cause unemployment (like many fear).
