Thinking of attending Strata Data Conference New York 2017? We’re excited to announce that on September 26, Quandl’s Chief Data Officer, Abraham Thomas, will be presenting a talk on logistics data.
Entitled “Oh buoy! How data science improves shipping intelligence for hedge funds,” Thomas’s presentation will delve into the many ways hedge funds use supply chain and logistics data to predict a pattern or movement in a specific security. This is an exciting area for data scientists today as financial professionals are ever-hungry for new sources of exhaust data to fuel their trading algorithms.
Thomas’ talk will take place at 1:35pm ET as part of the Data-Driven Business Management sessions. You can find full details on the conference page.
