Trading Edges Podcast Episode 32 - Artificial Intelligence and Trading with Luc Begnoche

Uncategorized Apr 05, 2017


I wanted to share this podcast I recently did with fellow Montrealer, Luc Begnoche, who is the cofounder and CEO of startup AIDvisors.

In this episode we talk about Artificial Intelligence and trading.

Nowadays we read a lot of headlines around the exponential developments in AI and how many companies are rushing to bring AI related technologies to market. The promise is that AI can and will change the way we do everything - that is the way retailers sell, the way we make purchases, drive cars, practice medicine, grow crops, and so on but what will AI do to trading?

To help us explore this topic I invited cofounder and CEO of startup AIDvisors Luc Begnoche to share his perspectives around the history of AI, the different applications of AI, the application to trading, and how Luc’s company is bringing to market a consumer friendly AI driven trading service.

Take a listen to the episode, leave us some feedback and let us know what you think?

On the one hand we hear about the dangers of AI taking over the world and on the other spectrum we have about the potential human assisting benefits.

So what do you believe at it pertains to trading?

Will AI will disrupt the financial markets or will AI ultimately the markets even more efficient?
