Machine Learning in Quantitative Finance

Machine Learning in Quantitative Finance

Author: William McGhee Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/08/2020

Written by a senior and well-known member of the Quantitative Finance community who currently runs a research group at a major investment bank, the book will demonstrate the use of machine learning techniques to tackle traditional data science type problems - time-series analysis and the prediction of realised volatility but will also look at novel applications. For example, the Universal Approximation Theorem of Neural Networks shows that a neural network can be used to approximate any function (subject to a number of weak conditions), although how the network is trained is not given. This will be explored within the book. Specific applications will include using a trained neural network to represent market-standard volatility smile models (such as SABR) as well as complex derivative pricing. The book will also potentially look at training a network via reinforcement learning to risk manage a derivatives portfolio. Readers will be attracted by a comprehensive presentation of the techniques available, with the historical perspective providing intuitive understanding of their development, combined with a range of practical examples from the trading floor. Key features: Describes modern machine learning techniques including deep neural networks, reinforcement learning, long-short term memory networks, etc. Provides applications of these techniques to problems within Quantitative Finance (including applications to derivatives modelling) Presents the historical development of the subject from MENACE to Alpha Go Zero and AlphaZero

The Digital Ape

The Digital Ape

Author: Sir Nigel Shadbolt, Roger Hampson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/08/2020

The smart-machines revolution is reshaping our lives and our societies. Here, Sir Nigel Shadbolt, one of the world's leading authorities on artificial intelligence, and Roger Hampson dispel terror, confusion, and misconception. We are not about to be elbowed aside by a rebel army of super-intelligent robots of our own creation. We were using tools before we became Homo sapiens, and will continue to build and master them, no matter how complicated they become. How we exercise that control-in our private lives, in employment, in politics-and make the best of the wonderful opportunities, will determine our collective future well-being. Chapter by chapter, The Digital Ape outline how our choices and the use and adaptation of the tools we've created can lead to opportunities for the environment (both built and natural), health, and our security. Shadbolt and Hampson are uniquely well-suited to draw on historical precedent and technical know-how to offer a vision of the future that is exciting, rather than nerve-wracking, to contemplate.

Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse

Deep Fakes and the Infocalypse

Author: Nina Schick Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/08/2020

It will soon be impossible to tell what is real and what is fake. Recent advances in AI mean that by scanning images of a person (for example using Facebook), a powerful machine learning system can create new video images and place them in scenarios and situations which never actually happened. When combined with powerful voice AI, the results are utterly convincing. So-called 'Deep Fakes' are not only a real threat for democracy but they take the manipulation of voters to new levels. They will also affect ordinary people. This crisis of misinformation we are facing has been dubbed the 'Infocalypse'. Using her expertise from working in the field, Nina Schick reveals shocking examples of Deep Fakery and explains the dangerous political consequences of the Infocalypse, both in terms of national security and what it means for public trust in politics. She also unveils what it means for us as individuals, how Deep Fakes will be used to intimidate and to silence, for revenge and fraud, and how unprepared governments and tech companies are. As a political advisor to select technology firms, Schick tells us what we need to do to prepare and protect ourselves. Too often we build the cool technology and ignore what bad guys can do with it before we start playing catch-up. But when it comes to Deep Fakes, we urgently need to be on the front foot.

AI Narratives

AI Narratives

This book is the first to examine the history of imaginative thinking about intelligent machines. As real Artificial Intelligence (AI) begins to touch on all aspects of our lives, this long narrative history shapes how the technology is developed, deployed and regulated. It is therefore a crucial social and ethical issue. Part I of this book provides a historical overview from ancient Greece to the start of modernity. These chapters explore the revealing pre-history of key concerns of contemporary AI discourse, from the nature of mind and creativity to issues of power and rights, from the tension between fascination and ambivalence to investigations into artificial voices and technophobia. Part II focuses on the twentieth and twenty-first-centuries in which a greater density of narratives emerge alongside rapid developments in AI technology. These chapters reveal not only how AI narratives have consistently been entangled with the emergence of real robotics and AI, but also how they offer a rich source of insight into how we might live with these revolutionary machines. Through their close textual engagements, these chapters explore the relationship between imaginative narratives and contemporary debates about AI's social, ethical and philosophical consequences, including questions of dehumanization, automation, anthropomorphisation, cybernetics, cyberpunk, immortality, slavery, and governance. The contributions, from leading humanities and social science scholars, show that narratives about AI offer a crucial epistemic site for exploring contemporary debates about these powerful new technologies.
