Subtle Indicators of Decision Making in Finance-Relevant Text

Abstract: In finance there are two basic types of data: market data, which indicates trading decisions; and alternative data, which is used to support decision making. Much alternative data takes the form of natural language documents. In this talk I will briefly survey how NLP is used to process alternative data in finance. I will then describe one particular experiment, where Katherine Keith (a Bloomberg summer intern) and I analyzed financial analysts' decision making via earnings call transcripts. I will close with an overview of other data science research at Bloomberg.
