DCM Statement Regarding the Presentation Titled “Understanding Weak Points in Machine Learning Investing”

In our continuing effort to educate the capital markets about the use of machine learning to provide superior investment decisions, we participated in two conferences with a presentation titled “Understanding Weak Points in Machine Learning Investing.” The first conference was at the Clariden Global Conference in New York City on December 5, 2017, and the second was the RavenPack “Big Data & Machine Learning Revolution” event in London on April 25, 2018.

The presentation was also posted on this website, on YouTube, and on other websites. In the interest of transparency and respect for third-party intellectual property rights, we identified several sources of information at the end of this presentation.

Since then, it has been brought to our attention that there may have been some confusion regarding the specific source of the information presented.

Upon closer review, we recognize that such attribution was neither clear nor sufficient. Thus, we wish to clarify that slide numbers 3, 19, 20, 21, and 22 of our presentation stated work authored by Dr. Marcos Lopez de Prado of True Positive Technologies, LP. Although we attributed Dr. Lopez de Prado as a source towards the end of the presentation, we realize now that this attribution was too general for its purpose. We apologize to Dr. Lopez de Prado and our customers for any confusion our actions may have caused. We have removed the abovementioned slides from our platform and from circulation to prevent further confusion.
