SQA Fuzzy Day Conference “Learning and Adaptation in Financial Markets”
During the past decade financial markets witnessed significant dislocations in traditional pricing relationships. An emerging field of evolutionary finance attempts to reconcile observed market anomalies by applying Darwin's principle of natural selection to study trading behavior and asset price dynamics. This new perspective, with Adaptive Markets Hypothesis (AMH) at its core, views markets as a competitive and adaptive mechanism as investors learn from and adapt to the changing environment. Under AMH, this market selection mechanism transfers wealth to investors who are well adapted to the environment from investors who are less adapted. This full-day conference brings together leading experts in cognitive science, behavioral and computational finance to present empirical and experimental evidence of human (biased) learning and to discuss implications of learning and adaptation to investment management. Join our keynote speaker Andrew Lo, Nick Barberis, Jasmina Hazanhodzic, Brian Uzzi, Blake LeBaron, Todd Gureckis, Christopher Neely, and your colleagues for a thought-provoking discussion.
