Why you should consider participating:

The amount of data available to organizations and individuals is unprecedented. In fact, according to IBM, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day.

In this one-hour virtual session, David Haber and Neal Kumar, co-founders of Cognitir, will give insights into the recent hype around data science. What is big data? What is not big data? Why is data science important to finance professionals, and how can it help us make better decisions?

They will then walk the audience through relevant situations where data science is applied in the finance industry, including sentiment analysis, risk credit management, financial fraud, and customer segmentation. The webinar will conclude with a brief discussion of data science/big data and how it is used in today's fintech industry.

David and Neal will keep the last 10 minutes of the webinar open for participant Q&A.
