Aric Whitewood is co-founder of WilmotML, a machine learning and macroeconomics focused investment and advisory firm. He is also an Honorary Senior Lecturer in the Computer Science Department of University College London (UCL), for which he runs several research programs with UCL students on machine learning topics.
He focuses on the combination of neuroscience, artificial intelligence (A.I.), and investing, with a particular emphasis on developing investment systems that are transparent (enabling trust in investment decisions) and that operate on longer timescales than has historically been the case with algorithmic systems (typically months).
Previous to his current position, he was Head of Data Science in Credit Suisse Zurich, where he ran A.I. projects across a number of businesses and geographic locations. He also served as the Banks subject matter expert in machine learning, regularly presenting to both the Banks management as well as its major clients.
He holds a PhD in Electronic Engineering from UCL (2006).
