Hudson River Trading’s BIPOC Tech Summit

Hudson River Trading is proud to host our first-ever BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color) Tech Summit: a virtual platform for BIPOC undergraduate, graduate, and experienced engineering talent to learn, talk, and network around tech in the quantitative finance industry! Attendees will get an inside look at what it’s like to work in the world of automated trading, and have the opportunity to learn about the interesting technical problems we tackle on a daily basis. Join us for talks, panels, and networking sessions hosted by HRT engineers covering a wide scope of topics, including artificial intelligence in trading, demystifying decentralized finance, asynchronous programming, a “how to” guide on running a private cloud, and much more!

Session One

Algo Track: Arbitrage 101
Learn the basics of arbitrage as well as some relevant trading background.

Engineering Track: Gotta Go Fast: Trading Quickly and Safely with FPGAs

Session Two

Algo Track: High Frequency Trading 101
An automated trading system makes investment decisions, sends instructions to exchanges, and has profit (or loss) at the end of the day, all without human intervention. In this talk, you’ll learn how a computer could make investment decisions – and pick up some useful industry jargon along the way.

Engineering Track: Engineering for Low Latency
An introduction to the concept of low latency in algorithmic trading and how it guides the way in which we engineer our code.

Infrastructure/Trading Tech Track: Timekeeping In a Blazing Fast Industry
In the trading world, having your time off by seconds can be a huge problem. In this talk, we will go over all of the hardware and software that goes into the accurate timekeeping that is required to support trading at the speed of light.

3:00 PM

Session Three

Algo Track: AI in Trading Talk
Learn how AI can be applied to problems in trading, and challenges that may arise when doing so. No background in AI or trading is required.

Engineering Track: Data in Trading Talk
How can real world data enable HRT to make better trading decisions? In this talk you will learn how firms like HRT use data to make informed financial trades and the engineering challenges involved.

Infrastructure/Trading Tech Track: Taking Care of the Herd: Running a Private Cloud at HRT
At HRT, we run our own internal private cloud, which comes with many fascinating real-world problems like power, HVAC, networking, and many creative ways to make that more efficient like dunking servers in oil! Join us as we take you on a tour of all of the things that go into reliably running a data center at scale.

3:30 PM

Algo Track: Decentralized Finance Demystified
Learn how smart contracts, decentralized exchanges, and decentralized lending are creating a new financial universe.

Meet Jason, Prashant, and Oaz

 

When not making us all a little nervous with his penchant for daring hobbies, Jason is a true philomath. If there is something to learn and conquer, he will, especially if it involves programming. Jason seeks adventure on the water and in the sky; he is a world-champion sailor with a passion for aviation. When not in the office, Prashant can probably be found on a tennis court, or in Tribeca with his wife and two daughters. And our newest partner, Oaz, is above all else passionate about expanding HRT’s trading. Reading, swimming, and yoga are all activities Oaz enjoys when he’s not engrossed in exploring a new trading idea.

All of the partners embody HRT’s culture of hard work, ethics, and the tireless pursuit of opportunity.
