Tech Talk 5.0

CME Group invites you to join us at Tech Talk 5.0 for an evening of innovation-driven discussions with technology thought-leaders in the trading industry and beyond.

Live from London for the first time, this annual event brings together industry leaders and experts who are pushing the boundaries of technology in areas such as deep learning, blockchain, predictive analytics and much more. 

Hear industry experts weigh-in on topics such as:

  • The Digitization of Assets – Explore the different views on Blockchain, Bitcoin and other emerging digital assets within financial markets. Hear about real use cases being implemented by firms today, including CME Group.

  • Next Generation Data – Take a look at how emerging technologies, such as deep learning, are being used within our industry to extract significant value from a wide range of financial and non-financial datasets.

  • Cloud/Big Data – More than 10 years since its inception, we take a closer look at why cloud continues to enable financial markets innovation at a greater pace than ever before.

  • Architecture – Examine technologies that have the potential to revolutionize our industry, such as Quantum computing, and discuss practical implementations that can be leveraged today.
