DSI launches research collaboration with Thomson Reuters



Bringing data science expertise to bear on global big data challenges in finance and law

The Data Science Institute, Imperial College London and Thomson Reuters are working together to bring data science expertise from both corporate and academic worlds to bear on global big data challenges impacting financial and legal professionals. The initiative aims to drive faster innovation in FinTech and RegTech industries through collaborative research projects.

The projects will bring together academics from across Imperial's departments to do cutting edge research informed by real industry problems. The collaboration will utilise the KPMG Data Observatory to visualise data, enabling novel exploration of data and unearthing fresh insights.

This partnership will create a global ecosystem whereby academics, financial markets institutions, and technology firms can collaborate to tackle FinTech issues such as supply chain risk, financial risk management, real-time data analysis and RegTech issues such as the impact of regulation.
