Winter Workshop

Building for the Future, Today 

As machine learning moves from buzzword to project and the public cloud becomes home not just to Silicon Valley startups but also to staid fund managers, chief information officers at investment management firms find themselves wrestling with the practicalities of using advanced technologies and methods in existing IT organizations. Move to the public cloud, yes, but what to move first, and how to secure it? Practice devops, by all means, but with which people and what skills? Comb through petabytes of alternative data looking for investment signals, of course, but how to meld technical experts and portfolio managers into an effective team? At Financial Technology Forum’s 2018 Winter Workshop we’ll examine how investment technologists are answering these questions.

Featured Speaker

Gordon G. Chang

Author of Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes On The World

In volatile North Asia, there are two Koreas, one rich and the other poor. Now, the poor Korea, backed by China, has the ultimate weapon to destroy the rich one, supported by the United States. The situation is inherently unsustainable. At the same time, many in Washington no longer believe the U.S. can tolerate the North’s weapons programs. Within perhaps a year, the Kim regime will be able devastate the American homeland with nuclear warheads. Author and commentator Gordon Chang will talk about the possible futures for the increasingly troubled Korean peninsula.
