#10YEARSOFQUANTINSTI

As they say, knowledge is the greatest gift in life. While celebrating our 10 years of existence, we’ve planned this series to thank our community. We are thankful to you from the bottom of our heart for showing the love & support in our journey over the years!


About the Session

This is the second webinar of our #10YearsOfQuantInsti series.

In this session, we’ll be interacting with Dr Thomas Starke on Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL). DRL has been very successful in beating the reigning world champion of the world's hardest board game GO. This talk explains the elements of DRL and how it can be applied to trading through "gamification".

Dr Starke has lectured ‘Computer simulation’ at Oxford University and is very active in the quantitative trading community. He frequently conducts workshops and presentations on algorithmic trading around the world.
