The focus of the session will be the book ‘Dark Pools: The rise of A.I. Trading Machines and the Looming Threat to Wall Street’ by Scott Patterson, who is a financial journalist and a reporter for the Wall Street Journal. Dark Pools offers a look into the current play of trading and stock exchange and is a fascinating story of how global markets have been hijacked by trading robots.
