ATG Workshop: Focus on IT Careers and Starting your Fintech Business

March 22 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

We’ve made some exciting enhancements to enrich the learning experience.


It is our pleasure to introduce Data Strategist, Analytics Consultant and Knowledge Architect, Irina Muhina (Ph.D in AI). Irina will open by providing real world guidance on the fantastic IT career paths and dynamic startup opportunities that exist in today’s global IT market. Irina is a member of the ATG organizing committee, and I’m sure you’ll find her nuanced knowledge of the Data Science space quite riveting. For those seeking inspiration for a Fintech or Mobile startup, highly respected innovator Dr. Emma Navti (Ph.D) will join us on a live WebEx link from London, UK. A Certified Cloud Technology and Mobile Payments Expert, Emma will be walking us through the implementation of a “Digital Banking Platform” on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. Using this cutting-edge case study, attendees can expect to learn about the business aspects, as well as the underlying server-less, scalable and resilient architecture capable of handling millions of user transactions.

To round off the Fintech theme, our long term friend Richard Boire will be returning to impart some valuable, practical data mining skills aimed at today’s entrepreneur. We all know that Financial Services have been at the forefront in the application of the principles of Data Mining/Data Science in optimizing overall company profitability for the last 40 years. At the same time, the application of data science utilizes a smart four step approach which ultimately can be applied across all industry sectors. Planning to launch a business in the new digital world? Consider the data science impact:

* Data you will collect
* How you need to organize your data
* How you monetize the data you acquire
* What data science tools (AI and machine learning) will you need
* What are the data science skill sets you need In this session, Richard will walk us through a structured data science approach, and outline how it was applied in two financial services sector case studies. —————————————————————
