The AI and big data revolution have energized the financial market in ways not seen since the introduction of electronic trading in the 1980’s.

The concept behind deep learning is surprisingly easy to understand. Through thousands of iterations of trial and error, artificial neural networks are able to classify profitable states of a tradable asset as measured through a compilation of data signals.

The question remains: With the influx of new alternative data sources flooding the market, how can one measure the efficacy of an alternative data signal?
