The Fields Institute, Toronto

November 11 – 12, 2016

The topic of the conference concerns the new datasets becoming available in Economics and Finance, and the modelling and statistical techniques to treat these data. Typical examples are scanned data on household expenditures available for millions of customers, in real time and for a large number of goods, the individual preferences Net data set type, or the continuous geolocation of drivers by GPS used to store the risk of accidents for car insurance. These data were not available before. They require new structural economic models, but also new structural tools for analyzing the large datasets (‘Big data” framework).
