“Investment into FinTech is at unprecedented levels and banks are gearing up in order to defend their industry from relentless disruption through startups. In the Analytics Center of Excellence at Barclays we are working on advanced analytics and predictive systems that will power the future of consumer banking. In this talk we will explore the technologies, algorithms and data structures that enabled us to build 3LM. A system that determines the location of card transactions at impressive scale.
