How Autonomous Learning Investing Strategies (ALIS) is Transforming Investment Management

Autonomous Learning Investment Strategies (ALIS) is the confluence of big data, artificial intelligence, data science and record low processing and storage costs.  ALIS will replace the way current fundamental/technical discretionary and quantitative managers run their portfolios.

This panel will cover:

How is ALIS likely to impact the asset management industry, investing and Wall Street employment?
How do ALIS managers use big data that didn't previously exist and is growing at Moore's law to generate returns from the market? 
How do ALIS managers develop systems that run autonomously, like self-driving cars, and get smarter, improving themselves without human intervention? 
What metrics are important in the world of ALIS?

Starting with an "Introduction To Autonomous Learning Investment Strategies” Keynote by Michael O Weinberg, Chief Investment Officer, and a Senior Managing Director of MOV37 and Protégé Partners, this event will include a panel with Michael and Ryan Morris, founder of Meson Capital, and Renee Yao, founder of Neo Ivy Capital Management.

In early 2015, Renee set up her own firm, Neo Ivy Capital Management, a quantitative hedge fund manager that focuses on trading liquid, publicly traded equity securities via statistical arbitrage strategies, in anticipation of trading on behalf of Millennium Partners.
