J.P. Morgan Presents Keynote at FPL

Stephen Weston from J.P. Morgan will present “Field Programmable Logic in investment banking – why scale and complexity drive the need for speed” on September 5 at FPL 2011 – the 21st International Conference on Field Programmable Logic and Applications – sponsored by Maxeler Technologies, covering the computational challenges currently being faced by global banks and discussing some details of their work with Maxeler Technologies.

Increased complexity and scale in both models and data, combined with the demands of high frequency trading, the risk management of complex portfolios and the competitive and regulatory environment have conspired together to create huge computational challenges for global banks. This talk considers the scope of these challenges and examines how field programmable logic devices can be used to provide computational speed at a price-performance point attractive to both technologists and business users alike.
