WAIAF 2019 - Workshop of Artificial Intelligence Applied to Finance

Financial world has been impacted and transformed by a real revolution due to recent advances in Artificial Intelligence. New products and solutions based on disruptive technologies such as Smart Robots, Deep Learning, and Cognitive Expert Advisors among others, like Blockchain (cryptocurrencies) are changing the status quo in many countries, including Brazil. Researchers and entrepreneurs in Fintechs (high-tech startups focusing on the financial market) as well as large financial companies have invested significant time and resources in the application of new technologies to the market. Moreover, finance is also an excellent field for validation and testing of various intelligent techniques, as it provides a data-driven environment with objective rules and accessible to autonomous agents across the global network.

The WAIAF 2019 is scheduled to take place on 14 and 15 May at ITA. This workshop aims at integrating, in a high level, researchers and practitioners of Artificial Intelligence applied to Finance. Focusing on meeting the current demands of companies in this economic sector, the participants have the opportunity to present and discuss new methodologies, tools, challenges, and technologies. Therefore, this event contributes by shrinking the distance between, researchers and practitioners, thereby allowing a better targeting of research in academia and access to new technologies and results by the industry.

Based on 2018 edition’s data, we expect an audience of approximately 200 people by 2019. This audience should be composed of researchers, professionals and students linked to the major areas of Artificial Intelligence and Finance throughout the country, especially from São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro. Researchers from other countries are also invited.
