Is Data a Double-Edged Sword?

12:30 pm - 12:50 pm Big Data Evolution and its Impact on Predictive Models in Finance and Telecommunications

Petr Pascenko - Head of Data Science, Profinit
  • The Big Data in many domains (especially banking and telecommunications) mostly consist of very large transaction datasets.
  • Each transaction (payment, call, text, message, etc.) is a small piece of evidence of the existence of a hidden link between the subjects on both sides of the transaction.
  • By processing data carefully, we can aggregate this evidence and find those links. Where there are links, there is a network - a network built on implicitly expressed preferences. In our research program, we focus on mining business knowledge from such networks.
