Hedge fund Renaissance Technologies is looked upon by Wall Street with awe and envy in equal measure. Particularly, Medallion Fund, an employees only fund it runs. Bloomberg last year wrote the fund has returned more than $55 billion, making it more profitable than funds run by feted veterans such as George Soros. The Renaissance flagship fund, which will turn 30 next year, has returned more than 25% profits in most of its years of investing. Money doubles in a little more than three years at that rate.

Summary: Some observations about new major trends and directions in data science drawn from the Strata Hadoop conference in San Jose last week. This is always exciting, enervating, and exhausting but it remains the single best place to pick up on what's changing in our profession. This conference is on a world tour with four more stops before repeating next year. The New York show is supposed to be a little bigger (hard to imagine) but the San Jose show is closest to our intellectual birthplace. After all this is the place where to call yourself a nerd would be regarded as a humble brag.
Within the silos of incumbent financial services, so-called fintech companies are good at picking off one thing only and doing it well. This approach is also taken within data science, where a lot of the properly intelligent work is about understanding the domain (problem) and how best to use the information/data for the problem you have. In doing so, a fintech approach – collaboration, open-sourcing code – is helping to gradually change the culture of finance, even in some hitherto heavily guarded domains. Newsweek is hosting an AI and Data Science in Capital Markets conference on December 6-7 in New York. Dr Tristan Fletcher, research director, Thought Machine, said: "Without this specialisation and domain knowledge, it's very hard to rise above the noise.
