AI is successfully used across many industries, however, as the driver of investment decisions, it is still under utilised and partly misunderstood. It is not a crystal ball that predicts the future; however, it can be a powerful tool to deliver investment results that are coherent with the investors expectations.

In this webinar, Tommaso Migliore, CEO and Co-founder of MDOTM, will show how a purpose-built neural network is able to react quickly on market changes and protects the investors from unexpected surprises.

Tommaso will assess what kind of input data will yield the most reliable results and also share some of the dead-end roads that were encountered on the way to a reliable and robust architecture of neural networks for portfolio construction and risk management.
