How does Lumesis utilize AI/ML in the Platform?2021-10-27T10:14:39-04:00

Lumesis uses AI/ML to more accurately fill in the gaps in the yield curve when there are no market comparable bonds and trades. Lumsesis’ AI/ML deployment is as accurate or more accurate than traditional interpolation or extrapolation 96% of the time.  Lumesis has published a White Paper, available here.

Why would AI/ML not be available?2021-10-27T10:15:40-04:00

A/I would not be available for the following reasons:

  • All maturities have at least 1 comparable bond/trade.
  • No comparable bonds/trades are available for any maturity.
  • No coupons are entered for Tax Exempt deals.
  • The Target Issue does not contain a Sector and State.
