Warwick Finance Network and Rise - The Future of Data

Beyond the buzzwords, what do AI, ML and DL really mean for both FinTechs and large financial institutions? What is the future of data, and what challenges are we all likely to face?

This event is a collaboration between Warwick Finance Network and Rise created by Barclays. It’s an informal interview and panel conversation with five industry experts, who will discuss their career, their industry and their vision for the future of data.
