Cvent Transition Guide


The impact of “AI/ML” in capital markets is growing. However, pure outperformance requirements have expanded to include more robust, explainable, trustworthy, sustainable, efficient, transparent, and simply larger AI/ML models that open a new era of model building. New algorithms, approaches, risk management techniques, governance and infrastructures can help address this.

Jochen will give an overview and present some use cases, one of which is based on a project with Munich Re Markets on robust accelerated portfolio construction and market data generators, recently published in the Journal of Financial Data Science. Another use case targets explainable, trustworthy AI with an application in credit scoring. Jochen will also present the underlying energy-efficient enterprise platform for high-performance computing and AI/ML at scale, as well as some related open-source initiatives to democratize AI supercomputing.

Last, Jochen will describe some sustainable/green finance technologies such as GeoAI and ESG-NLP.
