Artificial Intelligence is transforming industries and reshaping how information is used and how decisions are made by integrating accelerated analytics, text, speech, and images on a nearly unfathomable scale. This event is part of a Data Science and AI Series first organized by the CFA of San Francisco in partnership with the FDP Institute ( Financial Data Professional). FIAM has adopted this generic theme, and, partnership with professional associations and selected partners/sponsors globally, will organize webinar style events to sensitize /inform /share views on issues, challenges and opportunities brought by disruptive technologies in Finance/assets management. The central theme of this webinar is inspired by Refinitiv’s recent survey entitled The Rise of the Data Scientist. This event is offered in partnership with AIMA Canada, in collaboration with the FDP Institute, the CAIA Association and other partners as the EMB.
