Big Data Strategy is a spin-off of Torux Software Ltd. Thanos Koukoutsakis, Torux Software owner says: “In February 2013 Torux Software was awarded the Open Data Innovation Voucher by the Technology Strategy Board of the UK. Since then, we have been working, in cooperation with the Computer Science Department of the University of Brighton, on the development of documentation and classification of the various types of relevant data sources, available technology and analytics, as well as on the methodology that will be used to develop Big Data inspired Equity Investment Strategies. Big Data Strategy will step on this significant body of work and move it to the next level in application, product and service development.”
“We have selected Seedrs to raise funding for our spin-off start-up, because it is a major and rapidly growing Crowdfunding platform in the UK and we are confident that not only are we going to achieve our fundraising target, but our new business will also benefit from the participation and engagement of our new investors,” says Thanos.
A core driving force behind the success of Big Data Strategy fundraising effort and subsequent product, service and business development, will be its highly experienced Advisory Board, whose members include Callum Runsie (seasoned Hedge Funds Sales and Trading expert), Saso Dzeroski (Big Data expert as Associate Professor at the University of Ljubliana), and Jianfeng Feng (Data Analytics expert as Professor at the University of Warwick).
Associate Professor Saso Dzeroski says that “Mining big, fast flowing data, from commercial and public sources, will be used by BDSS to analyze sentiment about stocks and predict movements of their prices. This will result in up-to-date and effective Investment Strategies.”
According to Professor Jianfeng Feng, “Big Data has much more information about shares future behavior than the normal market indices and company balance sheets can provide. Using modern machine learning methods to properly mine the information in Big Data can produce reliable prediction of shares future movements. Reliable prediction is the cornerstone of success of an equity investment strategy.”
