Research Centre: Research Centre for Machine Learning
Speaker: Peter Simon from DataRobot
We will discuss current trends in applied machine learning — the growing importance of automated machine learning and model interpretability, and what to look out for as a data scientist embedded in a business — why building good models is just the start.
Peter graduated from City's MSc in Data Science in 2017 and leads the financial markets data science practice at DataRobot. He works closely with banking, fintech, and asset management clients on numerous high-ROI use cases for DataRobot’s industry-leading automated machine learning platform. Prior to re-focusing his career on data science, Peter gained over twenty years’ experience in senior quantitative research, portfolio management, trading, risk management and data science roles at investment banks and asset managers including Morgan Stanley, Warburg Pincus, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Lansdowne Partners and Invesco, as well as spending several years as a partner at a start-up global equities hedge fund.
