What we're about

The focus of this Meetup group is to provide free monthly community data events.

About us

The Data Science Festival is a global data community. We aim to connect the data world and foster the sharing of knowledge, inspiration and ideas.

The global network is dedicated to free education through grassroots technical events. we will cover the latest topics that matter most to data scientists and data engineers. There will be no demos that you can learn from a book or video, instead our speakers will be discussing real world problems, what works, what doesn’t work and why they’ve implemented the solutions they have. They will generate lively discussion and debate, offering real-world take-aways to help you in your job.

Who is the Data Science Festival for?

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• Academics, founders, researchers, authors

• R, Python and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualisation developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision makers from data centric startups and large companies looking to utilise open source tools

Talk Title: Open Banking Insights: how Moneyhub provides users with more than just their finances in one place.

Summary: Open Banking has been around a few years now and is powerful in the fact it enables an interface to be provided where someone can view their current accounts, credit cards, pension and mortgage all in one place. This is beneficial from a budgeting and financial management perspective.

Moneyhub is a platform that connects to over 200 banking institutions to achieve this aggregation providing direct to consumer apps, a white-label proposition and APIs that provide a springboard for other companies to built their apps upon without having to worry about the underlying complexity of connecting to all of those banks. However, it provides so much more.

The talk will focus on the insights provided through the Moneyhub API, as well as in-app, that enable a zen state of mind about your finances and how we use Data Science to achieve them. As a user I want to know if any of my accounts may go overdrawn due to a pending payment, the fact they’ve raised my telephone bill (again) or that my spend on sausage rolls is increasing exponentially. A little Recurrent Neural Net overview will be thrown in, in the context of cleaning messy transaction descriptions as no talk is complete without the mention of data cleansing.
