CloudQuant's CEO was interviewed by Anthony Crudele of Futures Radios show to discuss topic including Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning applied to algorithmic trading. Alternative datasets are a major topic of discussion. People are saying that data is being created faster than ever before. That really isn't true. What is really happening is that data is being captured and stored at a faster rate than ever before.

We have found that innovators, with atypical backgrounds and education, when given access to institutional grade tools and datasets can create something unique. There is significant value that can be derived. Our business model is proving this out daily.
