Dark Pools: The rise of A.I. trading machines and the looming threat to Wall Street (Paperback)Scott Patterson (author)
- In stock
Dark Pools is the pacy, revealing, and profoundly chilling tale of how global markets have been hijacked by trading robots - many so self-directed that humans can't predict what they'll do next.It's the story of the blisteringly intelligent computer programmers behind the rise of these 'bots'. And it's a timely warning that as artificial intelligence gradually takes over, we could be on the verge of global meltdown.
