Will this workshop be included in the live stream option? Also, who will be presenting?



Hi Frank,

Unfortunately no. Our workshops will not be live streamed, only the main conference on April 29th will be. Our futures workshop will be taught by one of our data scientists, Max Margenot. Max holds a MS in Mathematical Finance from Boston University and has a strong background in statistics and computer science. He has implemented trading systems based on machine learning in the past and has published research on theoretical mathematics.

Also, a number of our engineers will be on hand at all workshops, to help with questions and coding.



Thanks Kelly!
