Launch of the Autumn College Lecture Series

On Thursday 24th September, College students attended the first in an online lecture series regarding current affairs. Ronan Patrick gave us an Introduction to Financial Markets, answering questions such as: what is the difference between a commercial bank and an investment bank, a bond and an equity, a hedge fund and a mutual fund. Financial markets can seem an intimidating topic due to complex and convoluted definitions. However, this lecture expressed concepts simply and concisely and provided a great introduction to those wishing to understand how money is concentrated in nations and societal groups. I look forward to The Politics of Artificial Intelligence, the next lecture, which looks in detail at bias and discrimination associated with AI—think facial recognition and the recent exam algorithm.
