QUT Global Law, Science and Technology Seminar Series – Episode 4
“A Scholar’s Journey – or how someone who struggles with his iPhone is the world’s most read and cited FinTech scholar”
The QUT Global Law, Science and Technology Seminar Series aims to bring together national and international speakers who will explore the personal, societal and governance dimensions of solving real world problems which are influenced by, and through the interactions of science, technology and the law.
The series will host speakers who think about ‘technology’ and ‘science’ as broadly construed to refer to methods of framing or interacting with the world, and that enable the critical and imaginative questioning of the technical, science, environmental and health dimensions of law and life.
In this fourth seminar of our series, Scientia Professor Ross Buckley will reflect upon his research on FinTech, RegTech, data, and related matters.
When: Monday, 20 September – 2:00pm (AEST-BNE time)
Where: Zoom – Meeting ID: 899 9563 0549 / Password: 302725
ABSTRACT – This presentation explains how I come to be doing what I do (trust me, it certainly wasn’t planned) and the major findings in the past 8 years of research into FinTech, RegTech, data, and related matters.
It then goes on to try and peer into the future – into a world of data-driven finance, in which many financial services are delivered, at least from the consumers’ perspective, by BigTechs like Google, Facebook or Amazon, rather than banks. And a world in which we control who uses our data and how, which enhances competition across the entire Australian economy.
