Panel Debate:


"Is the financial service as an industry incompetent with data? They benefit from a high level of data maturity, with more people focussing on it than any other sector. Yet it is still unable to predict any big financial crisis. Considering its highly evolved risk models, and teams consisting of highly intelligent people, how can this industry still suffer from a constant cycle of massive boom and busts? What’s the future for Big Data in Finance?"
