Sowing the Seeds of AI Strategies with Howard Siow of Taaffeite Capital Management The Derivative

    • Investing

Artificial Intelligence is a hot topic in every walk of life, and perhaps no more so than in the world of hedge funds and alternative investments. Howard Siow, Founding Principal and CEO at Taaffeite Capital, joins The Derivative to discuss how AI is used in the hedge fund world, and how everyone wants AI to predict every move in the market, but that’s not actually what AI does well. Howard talks how AI can be used as an incremental change agent, chicken farming, being a venture capitalist, the effect of human biases, the dirty little secret holding AI back, trying to solve complex problems, being an engineer, launching Taaffeite, opportunities in China, and growing up down under in Australia.
