Harnessing the Power of Data Science and AI in Investing 

By combining the power of big data, data science, and deep human expertise to modernize the way we invest, systematic investing is unlocking new ways to seek consistent portfolio outcomes amidst a world of unpredictability. As systematic investors, we focus on generating alpha by maintaining an information advantage in markets. We’ve been researching and integrating AI, machine learning, and NLP technologies into our investment process for many years. The recent release of ChatGPT brought the latest breakthroughs in AI to the public’s awareness, driving an explosion of excitement and attention around the topic. What may be less well known is that the predictive abilities of AI can also be applied in the investing world. Within BlackRock Systematic, these technologies enhance our ability to analyze datasets and forecast investment outcomes—transforming the way we invest by remaining on the cutting-edge of innovation. Join us to learn more!
