In our recent work, we detail an AI and machine learning mechanism able to assist in correlating a large body of text with numerical data series used to describe financial performance as it evolves over time. Our deep learning-based system pulls out from large amounts of textual data potentially relevant and useful textual descriptions that explain the performance of a financial metric of interest – without the need of human experts or labelled data.
