(Pension & Investments) Watch out, investment professionals — machine learning is coming to a company like yours. This subset of artificial intelligence isn’t just for programming self-driving cars or sorting cat pictures. It’s entering the investment management space, and its disruptive potential is only beginning to emerge.
From Siri and Alexa to Amazon and IBM’s Watson, computer programs driven by artificial intelligence draw on massive amounts of data to solve previously intractable problems. Machine learning gives computers the additional ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. This type of AI enables computers to change — to learn — when exposed to new data.
