Download our guide to Financial Services at Data + AI Summit to help plan your Summit experience.

I joined Databricks earlier this year and continue to be amazed by the value the platform brings to customers and organizations. From bringing alternative and social data (think:reddit) into real-time financial decision-making, and fast-tracking vaccine distribution, Databricks is enabling data-driven innovation for organizations in an unprecedented way.

As I learn about each possibility, I grow more excited about our upcoming Data + AI Summit in May. Data +AI Summit is the global event for the data community, where 100,000 practitioners, leaders and visionaries come together to engage in thought provoking dialogue and share the latest innovations in data and AI. At this year’s Data + AI Summit, we’re excited to announce a full agenda of sessions for data teams in the Financial Services industry. Leading innovators from across the industry - including Capital One, Intuit, Northwestern Mutual, JP Morgan and S&P Global - are joining us to share how they are using data to minimize risk, tap into value and innovate engaging and prosperous services for their customers.

Financial services keynotes and thought leadership panel

On our mainstage, we have Dr. Manuela M Veloso from JP Morgan who will be speaking about the intersection of machine learning and finance. Dr. Veloso is the Head of J.P. Morgan AI Research and a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), where she led the Machine Learning Department. She also co-founded the RoboCup international robotics competition. Her talk will be a stellar thought leadership session!

Our keynote speaker for Financial Services at Summit is Don Vu who led Data & Analytics at Major League Baseball (MLB) for 13 years and is now revamping how data is leveraged at Northwestern Mutual through organizational transformation, a modern data stack and aligning business objectives to data and AI use-cases. Join us on Thursday, May 27 at 9 am ET for our capstone Financial Services event at Data + AI Summit.

Following our keynote, you’ll have the opportunity to join a panel discussion with data analytics and AI leaders in Financial Services. Intuit, ABM AMRO and KX systems share their data transformation stories, and how they are accelerating change in their teams.

Alos, join us for live demos on the hottest data analysis use cases in the Financial Services industry, my favorite one being:

Alternative data always offer a competitive advantage to those brave enough to mine it. Investment strategies are widely discussed on public forums and could be used by institutional investors as a leading indicator to near-term events.
