On the podcast, James first interviews Joakim Strid, head of European surveillance at Nasdaq, about how the exchange is incorporating machine learning into its surveillance program. They then discuss how AI is set to change surveillance as a whole in the years to come. After that interview, Emilia David, US reporter for Waters, joins James and Anthony to discuss how T+2 came about in the United States. Then finish things up by discussing must-watch TV for the fall now that Game of Thrones is over. [Editor's note: We apologize for the sound quality on Joakim's interview; he was in Chicago and had to call in. It's worth listening to, though, because the material is very interesting and informative.]
