Jorge Sanz speaks about Data Analytics at the Philharmonie

Published on 06/02/2018

On 31 January 2018, Prof. Dr. Jorge Sanz, LIST’s leading expert in business analytics and regulatory technologies, participated as keynote speaker in the conference "Are you ready for Big Data era?" organised by the Bank Edmond de Rothschild at the Philharmonie Luxembourg.

The conference was met with great interest and gathered around 300 professionals from companies and institutions across a large array of sectors. As guest speaker, Prof. Sanz gave deep insights into the world of data and its potential for the development of Luxembourg, whether in the financial industry, the economic world or the daily life of ordinary citizens.

Prof. Dr. Sanz’s presentation “Leading from Luxembourg: how to drive value from a Big Data” started with the current data ecosystem in and around the country and put into perspective that data per-se does not provide any decisions and that sheer data volume does not necessarily lead to any value creation either. The road ahead calls for massive investment in education and training as data literacy and flexibility in the evolution of workers’ skillset are key elements for societies to continue profiting from the onset of technological change.

Discussions with Prof. Sanz and other LIST representatives went on during the walking dinner that was held courtesy of Bank Edmond de Rothschild in the magnificent lobby of the Philharmonie.
