In the financial world—especially in the field of hedge funds and high-frequency trading—using predictive analytics can increase decision-making accuracy and speed. Equity trading, for example, leverages data algorithms that recognize signals from a wide variety of data types to make ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ decisions in split seconds. But machine learning algorithms are only as good as the data that goes into them.
