David K.A. Mordecai, President of Risk Economics, participated in the jointly sponsored Santa Fe Institute (SFI) and Fidelity Investments Software Complexity: Implications for the Capability, Integrity and Security of Large Scale Software Systems Conference. Dr. Mordecai’s presentation was entitled Implications for the Financial Industry. The conference took place on May 11, 2011 at the Fidelity Investments office in Boston, MA.
This conference explored ways in which the study of complex systems in other domains of science and technology can be valuable for large-scale software systems, surveyed the state of the art in verification and validation of large-scale software systems from the academic and corporate perspectives, and considered implications of large-scale systems for the financial industry.
