Professor Xi Chen is interviewed about how machine learning will impact finance
— January 19, 2017
Excerpt from eFinancialCareers -- "Machine learning technology will make many jobs obsolete – some will be replaced by machines in the future. Examples include driverless cars, automated trading systems, and robots as waiters and cleaning people, to name just a few. I think one way [to approach the problem of unemployment] is to provide people with a better education so that the next generation will be trained to perform jobs that machines are not competent in."
