How to predict future market move? The objective of this internship is to develop a “robot advisor” and to compare its predictions with current market trends
Big Data allows new forms of data processing. One of the most promising attempts is the so-called Robot Advice. Robot Advice can be looked at as a functionality, which provides automated financial advice by means of applying a combination of data analysis techniques on a broad range of available information. The goal is to provide financial advice with limited or no human intervention.
The first part of this stage will be dedicated to select the index that will be used to build the robot advisor prototype. This can be a stock exchange, a market index, or even a currency. Then, based on historical data, influencing indicators should be selected, coming from social media (Twitter, facebook, other) or other brand-new fields (weather, Twit from influencers). The challenge will be also here to collect enough data to feed the prototype and to improve it based on results. ELCA will support the student to select the more realistic usecase to ensure a first prototype can be proposed.
The second part will be dedicated to the creation of the prototype. The Robot Advice Engine would extract, transform and interpret the data using specific connectors covering the multiple data sources. The derived data would then be processed using different techniques (classification, e-reputation, relationship discovery, sentiment analysis, pattern recognition, etc.). By combining the findings/results of the analysis performed, the engine would generate a prediction. The result of this prediction will then be compared to real case. Or even to human predictions.
As a conclusion, the student should propose a report, based on its results, evaluating the relevance of non-financial indicators to predict market trends. And perhaps prepare the topics for the next internships!
Use Case Example: Weather forecast in the USA and stock exchange / Twit of Mr Trump and Chinese currency /Average temperature in North America and SMI
