How to survive the new challenges in quant finance?
Key takeaways from QuantMinds International 2019, Vienna
If there's one thing we've learnt from this year's QuantMinds International, Vienna, it is that machine learning is the hottest thing in quant finance at the moment.
This May, we've heard some incredible presentations on the use cases of machine learning, it's limitations, and even how to set it up! It is clear to us that the role of the quant has changed irreversibly, and the new tasks need new skills and new faces. Furthermore, the rise of alternative data, crypto, and blockchain, open up whole new avenues for quants to walk.
