Success Story: Decision support tool combining artificial intelligence and behavioural finance adapted to trading and portfolio management

NCC presenting the success story

The French NCC: CC-FR, dedicated to HPC, HPDA and AI technologies, brings together the community of technology providers and users. CC-FR federates the HPC, HPDA and AI ecosystem and supports SMEs on the use of intensive computing, high-performance data analysis and artificial intelligence.

Industrial Organisations Involved:

CC-FR, set up within the framework of EuroHPC, is managed by the European Pole of Competence in high performance digital simulation Teratec, in association with the European Center for Advanced Research and Training in Scientific Computing Cerfacs and with the participation of the Big National Equipment Intensive Computing  Genci.

Name:  HORA Technology ;  Website : – ;

Technical/scientific Challenge:

Horae Technology is an entrepreneurial and independent investment management company, founded in 2021, and approved by the French financial market Authority (AMF). Our mission: Enhance the value of our clients’ savings. Horae Technology addresses both private clients and institutional investors through the mutual fund « Horae Opportunities » and the management of customised mandates. We offer a discretionary and flexible investment philosophy by investing in liquid stocks and bonds in the American and European markets. With the prominent support of the Ecole Polytechnique, Horae Technology develops experimental decision-support algorithms inspired by behavioural finance and deep reinforcement learning


Thanks to CRIANN high-level expertise in intensive computing, Horae Technology has been able to significantly increase the power of its artificial intelligence tool and the robustness of its models. Individual and personalized support has also enabled the company quickly become autonomous in the use of the MYRIA supercomputer. Today, Horae Technology continues to improve its tool and aims for a full integration of artificial intelligence in its investment process over a period of 6 months.


In September 2021, Horae Technology integrated the CC-FR Tailored Program, to benefit from a

high-level support in intensive computing. In collaboration with CRIANN (Regional Centre

Information Technology and Digital Applications Normandy), Horae Technology was able to access the MYRIA supercomputer, equipped with more than 10,000 computing cores connected in very high throughput, and capable close to 700 trillion transactions per second.


This computing power enabled the company to:

• significantly improve the calculation time of its intelligence algorithms’ training artificial;

• accelerate the performance of its tool through the parallelization of its code and the ability to analyze thus thousands of financial securities simultaneously.
