Title

UvA ABS:  How Big Data Innovates Finance​

Event Description

In collaberation with Amsterdam Business School: 

 
​How Big Data Innovates Finance

 
Join us on Friday, March 22nd, at UvA ABS's upcoming finance speaker event where we bring leading professionals in the industry and academia together to discuss How Big Data Innovates Finance, what the current state-of-the-art technology in the field is, which novel datasets and data analytics can be used to improve companyies' results and thus investment decisions. 

 
Big Data is rapidly changing today’s investment environment in several dimensions. New, novel datasets are being used to gain a competitive edge in investment decision-making over traditional methods. The data sources are endless, both private and public, e.g. CCTV, social media, business apps, sensor data, just to mention a few.

On the other hand, Big Data helps investors to create better algorithms to improve predicting future returns. In addition, investment decisions are influenced by how and to what extent companies use the Big Data to improve their business and thus their earnings.

In this speaker event, we bring leading professionals in the industry and academia together to discuss these topics. We will highlight what the current state-of-the-art technology in the field is, which novel datasets and data analytics can be used to improve companies' results and thus investment decisions.
 
Come and meet our executive students, alumni, and industry leaders.
