Taking Stock of Stock Analysis

On 1 April 2019, we saw the power of machine learning techniques in building an automated stock investment system.  A/Prof Carol Hargreaves described a data science approach to identify top stocks, a trading system that not only she built with her expertise but also used by her personally.  We are grateful for the support from the host ING Bank, and for having Annerie Vreugdenhil (Head of Innovation, ING Wholesale Banking) open the event.
