Friday lunchtime lecture: Open Source Finance - What would it look like?

Friday 11 October 2013, 1:00pm - 1:00pm

Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street, London, EC2A 4JE

The first of two lectures examining opening up financial data.

The financial sector is a notoriously closed and opaque system, with barriers to entry at many different levels. What elements, technologies and players are required to open it up, and what would the result look like?

Brett Scott, author of The Heretic's Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money sketched out some ideas from the cutting edge of open source finance.
