Financial Evolution: AI, Machine Learning & Sentiment Analysis

UNICOM is organising Financial Evolution: AI, Machine Learning & Sentiment Analysis on 23-24 June 2021.

Innovations in Finance and harnessing of Technology have resulted in making the term Fintech a portmanteau word.

The rise of AI and Machine learning has impacted many aspects of investment models and technologies at the same time it has disrupted some other.
