Presentation: "Computational Finance, Past, Present, and Future"

Time: Wednesday 17:15 - 18:15

Location: Westminster Suite

Abstract: The speaker will outline the role in an economy that a financial system is supposed to perform, and provide a brief taxonomy of computational finance in the last ten years. Important subfields of computational finance will be discussed: the role of the financial system they facilitated, and the technically interesting problems that practitioners of those subfields face. A brief analysis of what went wrong in the financial system in 2007-2008 will prompt a discussion of the fields within computational finance which are likely to prove interesting from a business standpoint over the course of the next decade.
