“Real Time Machine Learning Architecture and Sentiment Analysis Applied to Finance" by Juan Cheng, Data Scientist at InfoTrie

The vast proliferation of data related to the financial industry introduces both new opportunities and challenges to quantitative investors. These challenges are often due to the nature of big data and include: volume, variety, and velocity.

In this talk, Dr. Cheng will take the audience on a tour of the “big-data production line” in InfoTrie and show how the financial news collected from various and customizable sources are transformed into quantitative signals in a real-time manner. The talk will touch on various kind of topics like sentiment analysis, entity detection, topic classification, and big-data tools.
