The Telegram (St. John’s) - - BUSINESS -

TORONTO - Se­cu­ri­ties reg­u­la­tors say they are in­creas­ingly em­ploy­ing data an­a­lyt­ics and other so­phis­ti­cated tools to track down fi­nan­cial mis­cre­ants faster, but th­ese tech­nolo­gies won’t be able to fully re­place hu­man judg­ment. The direc­tor of en­force­ment at the On­tario Se­cu­ri­ties Com­mis­sion said Thurs­day that they need th­ese tools to crunch the mind­numb­ing vol­ume of data it takes in for in­ves­ti­ga­tions, and do it in weeks, not years.
