Our latest tool in the box
Our Quantitative Equity Research team has developed a Natural Language Processing (NLP) tool on streaming finance news, which can extract insights and enhance predictions from unstructured natural language. While concentrating our research efforts on specific stock signals, we'll continue sharing any insight and on developing our NLP research over the coming months. NLP is a field of artificial intelligence that enables computers to analyse and summarize human generated textual data as well as transforming it to data representations friendly for quantitative models.
