"Data and mathematics. The promoters of the data driven companies"

Abstract of the talk: 

It is a hardly questionable fact that data is an invaluable, strategic asset for companies carrying out their own digital transformation processes. The current challenge is the extraction of all of data's value. With this goal in mind, statistical and AI mathematical models are being used with the aims of increasing companies’ income, reducing costs through efficiency models and mitigating risks targeted at improving business management.
