Reinforcement learning for order execution

RBC Capital Markets and Borealis AI have developed Aiden, RBC’s electronic execution platform. The scope for reinforcement learning in finance is huge, since there are often many rapid decisions that need to be made and these need to take into account the present condition of the market. Aiden is one of the first steps in RBC’s adoption of these technologies.
