Data has always been the life blood of finance. However data in the first wave of computational finance was all structured. With the emergence of the Internet, social media, and the IoT, the nature of analysis for investment decisions has shifted from linear analysis to nonlinear techniques. Robert Passarella offers a survey on how we arrived at this point in finance, where we came from, and where we’re going, as we leave the world of model-driven finance and enter into the world of data-driven finance.
