The 21st century is ruled by data and in reality, it is turning out to be the ‘blood’ of this technology-driven era. From multinational companies to small startups, every organization today requires a Data Scientist.
The function of a data scientist is getting more important for a traditional organization because big data is constantly transforming business strategies and marketing skills and data scientists are the core of this change. Rather than simply collecting, mining, and making sense of data, data scientists are industry experts with specialist, in-depth domain knowledge. Data scientists design data modeling processes, create algorithms and predictive models to extract the data the business needs, and help analyze the data and share insights with peers.
By many accounts, becoming a data scientist is said to be a highly desirable career path. Harvard Business Review called data science “the sexiest job of the 21st century,” noting that “high-ranking professionals with the training and curiosity to make discoveries in the world of big data” are in major demand.
Making a career in this avenue is lucrative, but many people are skeptical of their growth as data scientists. To help them accelerate their career as data scientist, the BSE Institute has organized a webinar by Mr. Anurodh Gupta, Head of Data Science Compliance in Societe Generale GSC.

As the world is revolutionizing, even stock broking has evolved. In this new era, digital techniques are used in trading to help in the complex calculation of buying and selling of stocks and one of the emerging techniques in talks is Application Programming Interface (API).
APIs have become increasingly popular tools, with the likes of Meta (formerly Facebook), Amazon, SalesForce, and many more establishing their own APIs that allow companies to access some of their services without having to fully migrate into their ecosystem.
API is a tool that has helped in making trading easy. Earlier, retail traders were forced to screen for opportunities in one application and separately place trades with their broker, but today many retail brokers provide APIs that enable traders to directly connect their screening software with the brokerage account to share real-time prices and place orders.
API can also be used to customize trading platforms as per the user, or even upgrade their advisory services. The API also helps to integrate with third party advanced trading and charting tools. But this is not it, there is much more to the API concept, to help guide in the process of understanding API, the BSE institute has organized a webinar on ‘Open API revolution in India Stock Broking Industry’ by Mr. Raghava BS, Director of Products at CoinSwitch Kuber.
