Product description

Dark Pools is the pacy, revealing, and profoundly chilling tale of how global markets have been hijacked by trading robots - many so self-directed that humans can't predict what they'll do next. It's the story of the blisteringly intelligent computer programmers behind the rise of these 'bots'. And it's a timely warning that as artificial intelligence gradually takes over, we could be on the verge of global meltdown. "Scott Patterson has the ability to see things you and I don't notice." (Nassim Nicholas Taleb, New York Times bestselling author of Antifragile, Fooled by Randomness and The Black Swan).

Financial Times "[A] gripping, excellent expose" PQ Magazine "A great read ... and raises an important question: could the trading machines destroy the capital markets?" Reuters UK "As an exposition of Wall Street nerdcraft, Dark Pools truly delivers ... Patterson's tales of ingenuity and cunning read like a spy novel" Sunday Business Post "Financial journalist Scott Patterson looks at the real world of AI trading machines and crafts a story equally as riveting" British Airways Life Magazine
