Other Uses of R in a Bank

This month we have Vincent Saulys discussing ways to use analytics--with R--at bank besides trading.  We previously announced it for the 29th but it will be on the 30th now.

About the talk:

R is a great analytical tool for the front office, but it can be useful in other areas as well.  In this talk Vincent will share some of the ways he is using R at his firm.  Topics will include error and outlier detection, social network analysis and using data analysis to improve productivity.

Vincent is a Vice President in Technology with over 20 years of financial services experience.  Notable past projects include on-line trading systems; a unified web portal for institutional clients; and is credited with a patent (2010) for an on-line debt offering and exchange system.    Vincent is currently working to bring analytical techniques and tools to post trade processing and technology.

Graduate of Stevens Institute of Technology (B.E. and M.E. in Electrical Engineering)


Pizza, sponsored by Collective, starts at 6:15, Vincent will begin at 7 and then we head to the bar.

    This was an interesting talk on the uses of R outside of the trading desk. It would have benefitted from some sort of demonstration of whether it be on novelty detection or application behavior.

    Excellent; The presentation did raise a number of questions regarding the target of the survey . It did not collect and correlate the data on the activity of the developesrs to the tasks assigned but associated the clicks to an open application like the ide / outlook.
