May 8, 2019 – Galahad’s CEO Rob DiCesare delivered a keynote presentation with an overview on how natural language processing and machine learning are being used to make better investment decisions in the highly competitive global investment industry. Rob said “One of the most powerful breakthroughs from today’s AI is the ability to use natural language processing to tap into the value of unstructured data.”
Rob shared examples about how real-time data from earnings calls, news and tweets can be used to more accurately predict company earnings and stock price. And noted that the biggest gains are achieved when NLP-based textual models are combined with traditional numeric time series models.
