Competitive pressure, new data technologies, and advances in machine learning have combined to drive evolution of the financial services industry. Analytical and research skills are in high demand on Bay Street and well beyond. In the context of my experience at one of Canada’s largest banks, I will discuss how scientific minds can succeed in industrial setting. We will work out a business problem using basic probability concepts.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
