Arnaud Vincent obtained his master’s degree (DEA) in automated systems for manufacturing at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan in 1998. Over the past 15 years he has worked in the racing tyre division of Michelin and as the CEO of an IT start-up in the early 2000’s (in datamining), before joining a IT company, subsidiary of BPCE group, as CEO and head of innovation for the past seven years.
To complete his PhD research, he left BPCE group in 2013 and got his PhD at Mines ParisTech in November 2013. His thesis was focused on “Human computation applied to algorithmic trading.” Now he’s about to launch a new IT company in order to provide specific products based on human computation for hedge funds and banks.

As of the early 2000's, Internet has opened paths to a new form of collective intelligence, human or humanoid computing. Be reassured, reader, this is not a way to turn your brain into a computer. What it does is coordinate thousands of connected people together to assemble a computer power that exceeds, for certain complex problems, what is already available today via supercomputers. The specialty biochemistry was first on the track, and now we see financial affairs joining in. So, let's see what happens when amateurs take over a market trading room.

La biochimie a ouvert la voie, la finance commence à l'emprunter. Que se passe-t-il quand des amateurs prennent les commandes d'une salle de marché?
