DataScouting and SpeedLab talk about their joint DeepFinance project

DeepFinance is a research proposal that DataScouting, in partnership with SpeedLab GmbH, and the School of Informatics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, submitted in late 2019. The proposal has been accepted, turning DeepFinance into a working project since mid-2020.

Co-financed by national funds (Operational Programme Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation 2014-2020/EPAnEK, and the National Strategic Reference Framework/NSRF), and EU funds (European Union, and the European Regional Development Fund), DeepFinance aims to develop a complete platform for semantic and sentiment analysis from social media streams using deep learning. This platform can be then used to further develop unified tools for financial portfolio management that can effectively fuse multi-modal information that is extracted from various sources (including social media streams).
