The 4th Research Symposium was co-organized and co-funded by BIGFI - The center for Big Data in Finance at Copenhagen Business School. BIGFI is a Center of Excellence established by the Danish National Research Foundation and led by Professor Lasse Heje Pedersen. The center seeks to generate a fundamentally new understanding of finance based on the rapid increase in available data combined with the revolution in data science and computing power.

The theme for the 4th Symposium was the application of AI/ML within portfolio optimisation to e.g. support sustainable investments, implications of AI-powered trading strategies and the potential of advanced technology such as AI and quantum computing for solving complex problems.
