RE:WORK Interviewed I Know First CEO Yaron Golgher In Anticipation Of AI In Finance Summit

In preparation for this years AI in Finance Summit sponsored by RE:WORK at which both I Know First co-founders will be speaking at,RE:WORK interviewed I Know First CEO Yaron Golgher  to learn more about the company and whether the market is truly predictable. At the conference, Mr. Golgher will be discussing his work as CEO and co-founder of the fintech company as well as the underlying technology of the machine learning algorithm .

At I Know First, we utilize a combination of advanced machine learning techniques in order to get the most accurate forecasts. We combine deep learning, reinforcement learning, supervised and unsupervised learning methods, artificial neural networks, and more in our forecasts and other AI based products.

How the I Know First algorithm works

In order to understand how the algorithm works, it must first be established that the stock market itself is predictable rather than simply a series of completely unpredictable random events. In the interview, Mr. Golgher explains that the stock market is a holistic system governed by chaos and can thus be viewed as a chaotic system. Like the weather (another chaotic system), the stock market can then be forecasted thanks to the unique characteristics and feedback cycles of this type of system.

Additionally, the interview discusses what sets I Know First apart from other firms attempting to predict the stock market. Primarily, I Know First’s daily stock market forecasts are available to both institutional and individual clients rather than just to big banks. This makes the power of AI in stock prediction accessible to everyone.

The interview ends on a hopeful note for the future: I Know First has plans to implement its algorithm to forecast liquidity, quantify uncertainty of stocks, and create intraday predictions while also expanding into other industries such as healthcare.
