While technology professionals at financial services firms are aware of the impacts delivered by advancements in machine learning, artificial intelligence and augmented reality, new research breakthroughs in areas like materials science and discoveries in genomics can also have a huge impact on IoT, sensors, robotics, embedded intelligence, ever-increasing prediction accuracy, and more. Red Hat’s Alessandro Petroni, global director of application platforms and head of financial services strategy, will be joining other technology visionaries and futurists for a Wall Street Technology Association (WSTA) panel discussion on emerging technologies, January 18 in New York City.

The event will kick off at 8:00 a.m. at The Yale Club of New York City, with the panel discussion starting at 9:00. Panelists will explore emerging technologies through the lens of their potential impact on financial services firms, with the goal of giving attendees an expanded view on what critical technologies are emerging over the next few years, and the roadmap on which it will begin to materialize. Attendees will walk away with actionable next steps to enable them to prepare for the future.

The panel will be moderated by Johna Till Johnson, CEO and founder of Nemertes Research. Red Hat’s Alessandro Petroni will be joined by fellow panelists Barry Feirstein, consulting solution manager at Magenic; Swamy Kocherlakota, CIO of S&P Global; Rami Musallam, co-founder, president and CEO of CaféX Communications; Keith Steward, AWS artificial intelligence specialist for Amazon Web Services; Sunayna Tuteja, director of emerging technologies, innovation and strategic partnerships at TD Ameritrade; and Colin Wynd, VP and head of common services for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
