A key part of analysing financial data is communicating results. In this talk, we shall look at various ways of visualising financial data in Python, using a number of visualisation libraries, such as Plotly and Matplotlib. We’ll explore using GPU accelerated plotting too, to create animations based on market data, as well as creating dashboards (eg. to explore US unemployment at a more granular level).
On 6th April 2022, OpenAI publicly announced DALL.E 2, a ground-breaking AI system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language. In this talk, we will explore how DALL.E 2 works from first principles, including how it combines several techniques such as CLIP image embeddings and diffusion models to produce a state-of-the-art text-to-image AI system. We will also discuss the potential future opportunities and implications of using DALL.E 2 and the risks of making powerful AI models commercially available through APIs.
We propose and analyze differentially private (DP) mechanisms for call auctions as an alternative to the complex and ad-hoc privacy efforts that are common in modern electronic markets. We prove that the number of shares cleared in the DP mechanisms compares favorably to the non-private optimal and provide a matching lower bound. We analyze the incentive properties of our mechanisms and their behavior under natural no-regret learning dynamics by market participants. We include simulation results and connections to the finance literature on market impact.
Tens of trillions of US dollars in opportunity over time will be possible for proactive businesses of all sizes that engage in robust action on climate change. Huge capital investment and operations opportunities, transitioning with all deliberate speed from fossil fuels to renewables, will have positive impacts perhaps greater than the industrial revolution and the digital revolution.
The vision for this climate action is to conserve a liveable planet for our children; a secure planetary home. The mission is for the present generation to ramp up robust climate action urgently – substantially and quickly, with opportunity – to fulfil the vision.
