Application of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) in Algorithmic Trading
As digital innovation and cognitive solutions gain more traction, there is a need to create greater awareness and familiarity with the latest technology trends amongst ourselves. Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) seems to be advancing well through their hype cycle and are entering the phase of widespread deployment.

The main use case would be about independent behaviour modelling of the market participants, construction of objective functions and suitable optimisation techniques.
