At the Profit & Loss conference in Singapore Damien Loh, CIO of Ensemble Capital, talked how AI tools can be applied to FX trading.
Profit & Loss: Artificial intelligence has become a big buzzword in finance. What does this term mean to you and how are you actually using this technology?
Damien Loh: So it’s a very buzzy term, and that’s why we make a distinction by saying that we’re using deep learning. AI can just be a general definition where any process that requires thinking is automated in some way and there are people using the AI catchall buzzword that just have a linear regression in an excel spreadsheet.. And you can tenuously call that AI, but it’s nothing really game changing.
