Multimodal Machine Learning at Scale: AI for Research in Finance


Data analytics is mostly geared towards tabular data (numerical and categorical). Humans form decisions using not only tabular data but also make judgments based on text they read, such as news, reports, etc. Econometrics and Machine learning have been used successfully on tabular data and also on text and images, but the combination of text and tabular data is much more powerful. This is especially useful in finance, where humans have been using multimodal data to make decisions, and the talk will showcase the value of this approach with new tools.
