Marshall Chang
Founder & CIO at A.I. Capital Management

Profile

Marshall is the founder and CIO of A.I. Capital Management (AICM), a fund that pioneers the use of Deep Reinforcement Learning in FX trading. Their research centers on exploratory Deep RL algorithms that finds its own trading strategies as opposed to pre-defined and human engineered signals. From a higher level, traditional supervised/unsupervised approaches are to use neural nets as another non-linear analytical tool, whereas RL approach is to teach computers how to be good traders. Just like AphaGo and OpenAI Five that solves complex dynamic control and planning tasks in their respective fields of Go and Dota, Marshall attacks problems trading the financial markets as another environment for the RL agent to optimize. The focus on FX markets roots from his personal trading since college dorm room. Marshall has long been an avid technical trader and has since combined machine vision into chart reading. Graduated from Brandeis University with an MA in Finance, he's a young hedge fund entrepreneur active in the Boston startup community. Outside of coding and trading, he spends his time snowboarding and practicing Jiu-jisu.
