                            A substantial and growing volume of worldwide trading activity
                            now is determined by Quantitative Finance (“QF”), which
                            incentivizes the modeling of human group behavior to efficiently
                            allocate capital. The distributed computation and communication
                            capabilities of QF have become an integral part of the trading web
                            and constitute a likely field for the emergence of artificial
                            intelligence on a par in many respects with that of humans. This
                            talk will discuss the brief history of electronic trading and
                            Quantitative Finance, discuss the current architectures of the
                            worldwide trading web, and explore the potential role of high-
                            frequency financial trading as a catalyst for the emergence of
                            computational intelligence that not only is faster than human
                            minds but also, physically, orders of magnitude larger (i.e.,
