2020 is an unprecedented year for humankind in most parts of the world across industries and markets. It is the first time when the world join hands to accelerate the use of technologies in a vast scale as we work from home, attend university online and even work out virtually.

In this session, Emily will discuss the latest technologies and data used by the financial sector in decision making, the benefits they bring, their challenges and limitations in times of crisis and the outlook of technology in the new normal.
