About this ebook

Artificial intelligence (AI) and big data have their thumbprints all over the modern asset management firm. Like detectives investigating a crime, the practitioner contributors to this book put the latest data science techniques under the microscope. And like any good detective story, much of what is unveiled is at the same time surprising and hiding in plain sight.

Each chapter takes you on a well-guided tour of the development and application of specific AI and big data techniques and brings you up to the minute on how they are being used by asset managers. Given the diverse backgrounds and affiliations of our authors, this book is the perfect companion to start, refine, or plan the next phase of your data science journey.
