On our next meetup, you will get introduced of MovingPandas, a new locally brewed Python library, and you will hear a use-case from RBI's Data Science team on how banks do automated document reading with the help of NLP tools.
Doors open at 18:00. Hope to see you there!


1. Anita Graser: Python for Movement Data Analysis

The analysis of movement is an important research topic in, for example, geography, ecology, visual analytics, GIScience as well as in application domains such as urban, maritime, and aviation research. Movement data analysis requires tools for the manipulation and visualization of movement or trajectory data. This talk presents the new Python library

Anita is a Scientist at AIT Austrian Institute of Technology (center for mobility systems)

2. Daniel Bekesi: NLP in a bank - Automated Document Reading

Despite the fast pace of digitalization happening in the modern world, core processes in the banking area are still based on printed documents to a large extent. Document processing, therefore, consumes a significant amount of manpower and processing time, as well as an increasing operating risk level of the bank by being prone to human errors. In this session, you will learn how automated document processing can create a great opportunity to modernize and simplify the way modern banks work, reduce associated operation risk level, as well as reduce time and costs spent within a given process area.
