Description

Hi FinTekkis!

here are the first two talks for our upcoming meetup:

1) "Enabling smart pricing schemes in mobility through data augmentation"
(Dr.-Ing. German Castignani | Motion-S Sarl)

Motion-S is a spin-off from the University of Luxembourg, founded in 2014. At Motion-S, we focus on measurable telematics metrics with proven link to driving risk to create our driving profiles. Beside of the classical telematics parameters: speeding, braking, steering and acceleration, we are able to augment your raw mobility data with contextual information in order to compute exposure to risk with Contributory Factors for road accidents – including distraction, fatigue driving, road layout and disobeyed priority on the roads. As a research-based start-up, we have a strong scientific background, that drives us every single day to understand mobility in its core and to develop new solutions for an ever-changing world.

Bio: Dr.-Ing. German Castignani holds an engineering degree in Computer Science from University of Buenos Aires (Argentina, 2009) and a PhD (with honours) in Computer Science from Institut Mines-Telecom Atlantique (France, 2012). After a first experience as scientific researcher in the field of wireless networking, mobile sensing and driver profiling, Dr.-Ing. German Castignani founded in 2014 Motion-S, the first spin-off of the SnT / University of Luxembourg. Dr.-Ing. German Castignani is currently CTO and Chief Data Scientist at Motion-S, leading a technical team of mobile and backend developers as well as data scientists. He is also Research Fellow at the SecanLab research group at SnT / University of Luxembourg, where he continues his research activities by co-tutoring PhD students and research associates.


2) "Domesticating The Irrational Mind"
(Hans von Mühlen - Client Principal | Thought Works Deutschland GmbH)

InsurTech start-ups like Lemonade demonstrate how the concepts behind behavioural economics and cognitive biases impact digital product design and innovation. The term is being used since the early 1990ies and has a growing influence on strategic thinking and decision making. In this meetup Hans von Mühlen will give an inspirational overview of this exciting and influential topic and nudge the audience into a follow-up discussion.

Bio: Hans von Mühlen is a consultant with ThoughtWorks, a global IT consultancy. He has worked for various clients within the financial sector ranging from fintech startups to multi-national banks and insurance companies. He helps clients in the financial sector to create continuous learning environments to leverage lean, agile and devops practices and to build complex adaptive systems for frequent innovation.
