Guest speaker: Jim Northey, ISO TC68 Technical Committee Financial Services Chair & Global Technical Committee Co-chair of FIX Trading Community will be presenting on the landscape of financial object models and a history since the year 2000.
A look at the standards landscape from a macroeconomic and geopolitical perspective, possible learnings from forty years of commitment to standards from material science to computer science to financial technology. A brief review of FIX as the original Fintech disruptor. Do standards still have a role in the age of disruption due to the massive sociological change brought on by the Fourth Industrial Revolution? The talk will meander with some musings on some of the principles of standardization, the nature of communities, a visit back to Hintjens' social architecture. A discussion on key standards that could impact or be impacted by the current wave of Fintech disruption and innovation. How knowledge representation, machine learning, and natural language processing can be applied to standardization via machine readable specifications using the open meta-standard FIX Orchestra as an example in Fintech.
