Alternative Banking System

October 18, 2011

I just got invited to join the Alternative Banking System working group from Occupy Wall Street. It’s run by Carne Ross, who has written a book called the Leaderless Revolution. I’m excited to meet the group this coming weekend. It looks like there will be many interesting and unconventional thinkers there.

I got back last night from my Cambridge, where I spoke to people about doing math in business. I will write up my notes from that talk soon and post them, and they will include my suggestions for how to prepare yourself to be a data scientist if you’re an academic mathematician. This is a first stab at a longer term project I have to define a possible “data science curriculum”.

    Great to find your blog! Wish I had gotten to know you better in grad school. My current work is now mostly banking research. Please feel free to ask me banking questions, or bounce ideas off me for sanity checks. I can also point you to my favorite literature on banking. There are some great ideas out there.
