FINOS Mini-Summit: Accelerating Open Source Software and Standards in Financial Services
FINOS is a community of developers, technologists, and industry leaders from major financial institutions, tech firms, fintechs, and consultancies. This is a highly competitive, highly regulated industry, dealing with massive amounts of complex data while meeting the needs of demanding internal and external users, which means it’s essential to focus on both efficiency and innovation. This FINOS Mini-Summit will showcase projects that address key challenges in financial services that are also applicable to other industries. It will also highlight some of the unique and interesting challenges that financial services firms encounter while collaborating through open source, solutions the community is developing, and how you can get involved.

FINOS Mini-Summit Agenda

  • 1:00 PM - 1:10 PM   Introduction to Mini-Summit - Tosha Ellison, COO, FINOS 
  • 1:10 PM - 1:30 PM   The challenges and opportunities of building open source communities in the highly regulated financial services industry - James McLeod, Director of Community, FINOS
  • 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM   Why we need open sourced Data Models in the Financial Industry - Pierre de Belen, Managing Director, Goldman Sachs; Ffion Acland, Vice President, Goldman Sachs; Ian Sloyan, Director, Market Infrastructure and Technology, ISDA; Nigel Cobb, Senior Data Modeller, REGnosys; Moderated by Rob Underwood, Chief Development Officer, FINOS 
  • Panelists from the Financial Sector will talk about the value of shared data models in the industry and how they can significantly impact collaboration and efficiency.
    • Values: Fostering Collaboration across industry participants and regulators, positive impact on agility & time to market, cost reduction
    • Benefits of having a 3rd party hosting the shared models
    • How open sourcing Legend makes shared modeling possible + expedites & fosters collaboration in the industry
  • 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM   Building Highly Reliable Software More Efficiently - Stephen Goldbaum, Executive Director, Morgan Stanley; Mark Marron, Principle Research SDE, Microsoft; Aitana Myohl, Strategic Initiatives Manager, FINOS
    • Building highly reliable software should be easier.  Studies estimate that there are 10 bugs for every 1,000 lines of code a developer writes.  That has led to a plethora of tools to test and assess the quality of the code we write.  While these are great for the checks once the coding is written, there are still great opportunities to improve the coding process itself.  Dependable software can be written without requiring massive amounts of developer effort, elite teams, or verification experts and new languages and tools are paving the way.
    • In this talk we demonstrate leveraging three powerful open-source projects to efficiently write dependable systems:  Microsoft’s Bosque language for writing ultra-dependable application code; Morphir, a FINOS project recently contributed by Morgan Stanley, for efficiently producing multi-platform code from pure business logic; and Microsoft’s Dapr for running applications in a robust and cloud-ready infrastructure.  In particular, we will explore how these tools promote reliability and correctness while still being easily usable by development teams.
  • 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM   The Art and Tech of Generating Secure & Authentic Synthetic Data - Paul Groves, Senior Vice President and Lead Technical Architect, Citi; Andrew Carr, Scott Logic
    • In this talk, Paul Groves from Citi and Andrew Carr from Scott Logic will discuss challenges to creating realistic synthetic data as well as solutions that the two firms have developed to address this. Learn more about how you can leverge two open source projects, DataHub and Data Helix, to solve your synthetic data challenges.
  • 4:30 PM - 5:00 PM   Streaming, cross-sectional data visualization in Jupyterlab with Perspective and Apache Arrow - Junyuan Tan, J.P. Morgan
    • At J.P. Morgan, traders, researchers, and engineers use Jupyterlab and Perspective, a high performance streaming data visualization library, for analytics across large, real-time datasets. Junyuan Tan demonstrates how Perspective and Apache Arrow can be used to accumulate, dissect and visualize streaming data - all within a Jupyter Notebook.
    • Many data visualization libraries are built with static data in mind, where everything is known before the visualization is created. Analyzing data streams in real-time, however, is a crucial part of many industries. Combining JupyterLab's ease-of-use and flexibility with Perspective, a high-performance streaming data visualization library, users can rapidly prototype, analyze, and visualize results from a multitude of data sources both live and static.

Open Source Drones Summit by The Dronecode Foundation
The Dronecode Foundation presents the Open Source Drones Summit. Get started in drone development, learn all you need to know to start developing today. The summit will be focused on the PX4 Autopilot Ecosystem, hosted by project maintainers, top contributors, and Dronecode Foundation staff.

The PX4 Autopilot is an open-source flight control project with a BSD license for unmanned vehicles. PX4 supports multiple vehicle configurations (VTOL, multicopters, rovers, and underwater vehicles). You will be able to fly around in a simulator, using open-source software, and learn how to interact with PX4 based UAVs.

Topics covered in the Open Source Drones Summit
  • The basics of PX4, from source to building a simulation environment.
  • The basics of the MAVSDK, the SDK for PX4, customize, and control drones without touching the autopilot codebase.
  • Leverage other open-source projects like ROS, UAVCAN, and Pixhawk.
  • How the PX4 community works, how to contribute upstream, and where to go for help.
  • Join the Dronecode Foundation community, Public work calls, Workgroups, Special Interest Groups, and more.

The summit will include sessions on the latest trends in open source drones and robotics, the fundamentals of developing drone software and hardware-based on open source, and how to connect and cross-collaborate with the thriving community that has thousands of drone developers and system integrators from around the world.

Open Source Projects Covered
  • PX4 Autopilot
  • MAVLink
  • QGroundControl (QGC)
  • Pixhawk
  • ROS


[2pm - 2:20pm] Open source drones with PX4
By Ramon Roche, Program Manager, Dronecode Foundation

A complete look at the PX4 autopilot ecosystem, where it started, how the community works, what is Dronecode Foundation, the collaborative open source projects hosted under Dronecode Foundation and the main components of the PX4 ecosystem (QGC, MAVLink, MAVSDK, Pixhawk Standards)
The main advantages of using PX4, how to leverage the more than 10 years of history behind the project, successful commercial systems that are flying with PX4.

[2:20pm - 3:00pm] Tutorial: Controlling PX4 drones with MAVSDK
By Gonçalo Couteiro Atanásio, PX4 Ambassador

This talk will introduce MAVSDK architecture, supported programming languages, platforms and finally how it can be used to send commands to a drone. You will learn how to build the PX4 code, launch a simulator and use a ground station in this case, QGroundControl. Next you will see that by using a Python library of auto-generated code we can communicate with the drone using MAVLink protocol. To do that, it will be used the simulation and QGC, showing the drone actions, in response to the commands that are sent using a Python script.

[3:00pm - 3:40pm] Accelerate autonomous systems to market with PX4 and open standards
By Travis Bottalico , Software Engineer at ModalAI

Learn how ModalAI has leveraged Dronecode hosted projects to efficiently bring advanced autopilot systems to market. By using open source components like PX4, MAVLink, QGroundControl, MAVSDK and MAVROS, ModalAI is accelerating autonomy by providing innovators with robot and drone perception and communications systems.

[3:40pm - 4:00pm] Panel Discussion 
The future of open source drone technology. Computer vision navigation, more robust hardware, cloud connectivity, what should developers focus on and how to stay up with the industry trends.
