Final Agenda Announced.
Hope every one had excellent summer! Welcome all who have joined in the last few weeks. We are all set for our next event at Level 39 Canary Wharf on Thursday, 18th September evening.
Having discussed various threads of Data Analytics Innovation and Entrepreneurship in last events, our focus this time is to hear stories on the ground from Industry practitioners and entrepreneurs.
On behalf of 1 Wisdom Street Limited, I would like to thank our event sponsoring partners Anomaly42 and Tableau Software, their Senior leaders and speakers for supporting the event and their time.
As I promised earlier, starting this event we have a slot for ‘Featured Startup’ included in the agenda.
Here is the detailed Agenda:

Analytics & Business insight in the ongoing Big Data Confusion – Sarvesh Kumar, CEO & Founder Singular Intelligence Limited, 1 Wisdom Street Limited

Keynote 1: 6:15 PM – 6:45 PM
Anomaly42: Money Laundering and Living KYC: Changing the Fundamentals of Banking
- Laurence Shaw, Founding partner of Fusion AI Partners and CEO of Anomaly42, a company focused on turning big data into business relevant smart data.
Anomaly42 was incorporated in May 2013 to help businesses uncover the intelligence hidden within Big Data. We automate the process of collecting all the data connected to an individual company, market sector or specific client case.
We then extend the emerging data ecosystem with over 160 sets of verified data and other publicly available – generally unstructured - data. Using next-generation algorithms, we then break the data down into an atomic form and apply powerful visualisation tools to make connections that would otherwise remain unseen.
We effectively turn Big Data into business-relevant Smart Data.
We have already customised platform solutions for fraud prevention, civil and criminal investigations, derivatives contracts, and anti-money laundering / combating the financing of terrorism (AML CFT).
Our keynote presentation covers our breakthrough work with money laundering and our proprietary form of Living KYC (know your customer) - which we believe will fundamentally change banking, as we know it today.
Keynote 2: 6:45 PM – 7:15 PM
Tableau Software: Democratising Data.
James Eiloart, VP EMEA and Joe Clarke, EMEA Sales Trainer
Tableau Software, a pioneer in data visualization has a mission to help people see and understand their data – not just techies and PhD statisticians but ordinary business people. It’s a simple mission, but by delivering against this Tableau Software has secured a top spot in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and has become arguably the fastest growing BI vendor in history.
So what’s all the fuss about? Why are people getting so excited about Tableau?
Can it really help people of all skill levels get to their data wherever it might be, explore it in an intuitive and visual manner and share it with their peer and colleagues – all without writing a single line of code or script? It is really massively faster to generate insight using Tableau than any traditional BI tool? Is it true that with Tableau you can build cool, beautiful, informative and interactive data visualisations in a matter of minutes? Does Tableau really enable companies to unlock the extraordinary creative potential that lies within their employees?
And if it’s really such a hot company – are these guys hiring?!
James and Joe will endeavour to share some insight in to Tableau: the company; the product and the European business. (And by the way….yep – we’re hiring!)
Keynote 3 : 7:15 – 7:30
TheySay Analytics : Real time Sentiment Analytics
Jon Halestrap, VP Business Development
Following on from our appearance on BBC news we have now launched another Scottish Referendum site that can be accessed at:
This time we have taken a slightly different approach in that we have focused upon emotions.
Since its launch it has been really interesting to see how this has changed with almost every political announcement.
The emotional functionality has been available through our API for some months and will be released through our MoodRaker product in the next few weeks.
The original referendum site is still available at:
