Event description

Description

Our conference series explores innovation in data science, highlighting applications to risk management. This year’s topics are Impact Investing and Fintech, and confirmed speakers include Kay Giesecke, Adair Morse, Alex Papanicolaou, Alex Shkolnik, Philip Stark, and Kewei Tang.

The third annual CDAR Symposium, presented in partnership with State Street, will convene on October 27, 2017 from 8:30am to 6:30pm at UC Berkeley’s Memorial Stadium.

The Consortium for Data Analytics in Risk (CDAR) supports research into innovation in data science and its applications to portfolio management and investment risk. Based in the Economics and Statistics Departments at UC Berkeley, CDAR was co-founded with State Street, Stanford, and the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS). This year, CDAR welcomes a new founding member, the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE) based in Chengdu, China! CDAR organizes conferences, workshops, and research programs, bringing together academic researchers from the physical and social sciences, and industry researchers from financial management firms and technology development companies large and small.
