Amplify Business Intelligence with Visual Analytics


The financial industry have accumulated an ample amount of data that bring new inspirations to business intelligence. Processing vast amounts of information into knowledge and improving data utilization capabilities provide opportunities for the development of business intelligence. Visualization has a direct and close connection with knowledge expression and is an important means of interpreting complex data.

We are FinVis group under the HKUST VisLab. We are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of financial data and finding ways to effectively organize them to better serve business intelligence. We design the more sophisticated visual analytics rather than mere visualization, to provide a new perspective for financial knowledge exploration.
