    Tuesday, June 16, 2020 at 8:00 AM until 9:00 AMEastern Daylight Time

    Zoom Web Conference

    This will be a high-level talk looking at some of the projects that were initiated in the Hanlon Laboratories. Rather than going into depth on these projects, this talk will instead focus on their significance and impact. Among the projects for discussion: A liquidity project with Dr. Dragos Bozdog, a credit rating project sponsored by UBS, the SHIFT project sponsored by the CME Foundation and Capco, and our newest Robotics Application Integrated Development (RAppID) platform.

He has written four books and served as an editor for four more, has published more than 50 peer-reviewed publications, and has given presentations at conferences and seminars worldwide.
