Big Data promises to change all sectors of our economy, and deeply affect our society. But beyond the current hype, what are Big Data's salient qualities, and do they warrant the high hopes? How will Big Data shape businesses, especially the financial services industry? What do we need to harness Big Data? And where are Big Data's limits? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this talk.

This lecture celebrates the opening of the Oxford-Nie Financial Big Data Laboratory made possible through the generous support of Financial Data Technologies Ltd. The lecture will be preceded by a brief opening ceremony presided over by Professor Andrew Hamilton, Vice-Chancellor, University of Oxford, followed by a drinks reception.
