Nigel Young Speaks at TechWeek Chicago
Nigel Young, Spot’s CTO, was invited to TechWeek Chicago to participate in the FinTech series of panel events. Nigel joined five other industry experts in a wide-ranging discussion about Deep Learning, Data and the Rise of Machines. Focusing on the challenges that face the trading industry, Nigel talked about machine learning and big data, specifically as they relate to proprietary trading. As a way to marry human thinking with technology, Nigel sees the need to focus on augmented intelligence instead of artificial intelligence.
TechWeek Chicago took place from June 22-28, bringing together over 13,000 technology entrepreneurs, visionaries, and thought leaders to network and discuss technology and innovation and bring the tech community together. Spot’s interns and other employees attended various events at TechWeek, and Nigel was excited and honored to join this year’s group of speakers.
