Outline

The presentation aims to provide an up-to-date overview on the emerging field of applying quantum computing to the field of quantitative finance.

 

Sections:

•            Introduction: The transformation of quantitative finance with algorithms, machine learning, and data; the broad expected impact of quantum computing

•            What is "quantum advantage" and how it is related to "quantum supremacy"

•            What does "achieving quantum supremacy" mean for near-term algorithm development?

•            What is a "hybrid algorithm"? A quantum algorithm that we can execute right now!

•            Examples and discussion on how quantum advantage can be sought in finance

o            Ex1: quantum generative modelling for scenario simulation with quantum circuit born machines

o            Ex2: accelerating option pricing with approximate amplitude estimation

o            Ex3: better discrete portfolios with Quantum Approximate Optimization algorithms

•            Future outlook on quantum algorithms and hardware


Speaker

Mattia leads CQC's research team in high-impact applications of quantum algorithms in the fields of machine learning and optimization. His team's work includes the development of deep learning to financial time-series modeling and decision making. Mattia holds PhD in Physics from King's College London.
