AI Changes Everything: The Dark Side of AI

S5:E1 Featuring Shah Gilani and Addison Wiggin

Shah Gilani

It’s a new season on The Wiggin Sessions, and today, we have an extraordinary guest, Shah Gilani. Shah boasts a financial pedigree unlike any other. He ran his first hedge fund in 1982 from his seat on the Chicago Board of Options Exchange floor. When options on the Standard & Poor’s 100 began trading on March 11, 1983, Shah worked in “the pit” as a market maker.

His work laid the foundation for what would later become the VIX – to this day, one of the most widely used indicators worldwide.
