EQDerivatives Launches Machine Learning/Alt Data Platform, machineByte

machineByte is a platform dedicated to machine learning in investment management across data, learning types, markets and asset classes.

London, United Kingdom, December 08, 2018 --(PR.com)-- EQDerivatives, Inc. has announced the launch of machineByte, a platform providing news & commentary, data and research on how machine learning and alternative data is being applied in financial markets.

The platform will provide information across asset classes and across markets from the perspectives of quantitative professionals, data scientists, academics and machine-learning practitioners.

“We have been appointed by global institutional investors to develop this platform to provide not only the theoretical approach to machine learning in investment management, but also case studies and examples of how machine learning can be used in quantitative investment management,” said Robert McGlinchey, director and co-founder of machineByte and EQDerivatives. “Those investors are currently exploring machine learning and AI by attempting to discover non-linear trends in data, to maximise trade execution and to diversify allocation frameworks.”

For a free trial to machineByte, contact Peter Juncaj at juncaj@eqderivatives.com.

In addition to its online news & commentary service, the machineByte Journal of Machine Learning in Finance will open for submissions in January.

Next week, machineByte will host a global machine learning in quantitative investment management forum to celebrate the launch. machineByte 2018 will be held on December 13, 2018 at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, California, in close proximity to both San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Speakers will include Myron Scholes of Janus Henderson, Joe Staines of J.P.Morgan Asset Management, Nicholas Chan of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, Joseph Thurakal of Tigmera, and Matt Rowe of Headwaters Volatility.
