We are a focused team of 7 data scientists devoted to a handful of targets spreaded across Verticals. Our co-founders, Marta Díez-Fernández and Sergio Álvarez-Teleña are seasoned professionals of digital transformation with internationally recognized impact.
"If we searched for a company that unifies skills along Risk Management, Science and Technology we wouldn't find many but they would all be good. If we required those skills to be internationally recognized as tier one, we may find a handful but surely, they would all be special. If we further required those skills to blossom at their intersection, we would find SciTheWorld."
Along risk management, our co-founders have largely multipled profits in trading, finally holding senior positions such as Global Head of Algorithmic Trading and Global Head of Data Science. Scientifically, their research is in use in the optimal hedging of several trading floors; and their human-bot convergence (Systematic_me/ Avatar Calibration) has been recognized by the UK EPSRC due to its "Impact in the Digital Economy". Sergio is also Hon. Senior Research Associate at UCL and has been included by the UK's Digital Economy Network in the top 4 analytic researchers at UCL across all CDTs. Technologically, they designed the platform that won the prize to the "Best Trading Platform" of the industry at the Banking Tech Awards, 2016.
All in all, what SciTheWorld has wrapped up is a world class judgement on algorithmic interaction. Whether this interaction is bot-human or, more interestingly, bot-bot. As a result, the company was launched in 2015 primarily to manage its founders' investments through A.I. and, at the same time, to boost the algorithmic race on cybersecurity at a blue chip. We are now externalizing most of what we do, starting from Financial Computing and Augmented Machines Research.
