State Street combines machine learning and human expertise to launch Quantextual Idea Lab


State Street (NYSE:STT) has launched Quantextual Idea Lab, which it says combines the power of machine learning with the knowledge of human experts in order to help investment professionals efficiently read and interpret lengthy research reports, and apply relevant findings to their investment strategies.

Part of the next generation of intelligent client solutions developed by State Street Global Exchange, State Street’s data and analytics business, Quantextual Idea Lab uses machine learning algorithms to consume complex research reports, tag them by investment themes and assets as well as suggest new, relevant materials based on the end-user’s specific needs, preferences and observed reading behaviour. The solution then carefully overlays the experience and market knowledge of Quantextual’s own research team to continuously improve the algorithms’ performance and accuracy.
“Today, the speed, sophistication and volume of information far outpaces our ability to consume it,” says Stephen Lawrence (pictured), head of Quantextual Research, State Street Global Exchange. “Efficient intake of research is essential for identifying investment opportunities and managing risk. With limited time investors may overlook or delete important research insights. Those who can make sense of large amounts of information quickly will front run peers.
“Through Quantextual, we’ve designed a workflow that empowers the transformation of carefully curated ideas into decisive and strategic action. As more investment firms shift to a model of covering research costs out of their own P&L’s, an additional benefit of Quantextual is that it allows them to systematically review research consumption, to help them optimsze their research spend.”
