Featured presenter: Anthony Scriffignano, SVP, Chief Data Scientist at Dun and Bradstreet
Business decisions have always been informed by data: data about the suppliers, customers, and other counterparties in a relationship, the nature of a transaction and historical risk are but a few examples. With the advent of AI and other advanced analytical capabilities at the forefront of decision-making, it is crucial to challenge our longstanding beliefs and practices regarding, the discovery, curation, and synthesis of data. Our data is changing in curious and sometimes alarming ways. In this session, Dr. Anthony Scriffignano, SVP/Chief Data Scientist at Dun and Bradstreet, will explore how the massive availability and changing nature of data is altering the way modern business decisions are made. He will discuss some of the common myths and inconvenient truths about the data we use to make decisions. The session, both relevant and at times irreverent, will challenge how we think about the data that is underpinning so much of what we do in the modern world.
