  • Blockchain: Making It More Than Just a Trend
    Blockchain: Making It More Than Just a Trend Travin Keith, Sergey Ivliev, Vlad Dramaliev, Makoto Takemiya, Kat Kirilova Recorded: Oct 12 2017 61 mins
    Perhaps one of the buzziest of buzzwords for the past few years has been "Blockchain". But for those who are well-versed in the technology and the goings on of the industry, it is definitely more than just hype.

    Join this session where a panel of experienced Blockchain specialists will discuss:

    -Viability of Use Cases - Just because a centralized database can be more efficient doesn't mean it's the most viable

    -Preventing Blockchain from Being Just a Trend - if blockchain isn't viable as the solution, it shouldn't be used

    -Public vs Private Blockchain Use

    -State of the Industry - Understanding that a lot of the platforms and frameworks are in their early stage of development and that support may not be readily available

    Moderator: Travin Keith (Agavon),
    Panelists: Sergey Ivliev (Lykke), Vlad Dramaliev (aeternity), Makoto Takemiya (Soramitsu), Kat Kirilova (Crypto Tickets)
  • Image recognition with deep learning
    Image recognition with deep learning Layla Tadjpour, Data Science Consultant, Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California. Recorded: Oct 11 2017 39 mins
    In this webinar, we will learn about image recognition with deep learning. After a brief overview of what deep learning is, and why it matters, we will learn how to classify dogs from cats. That is, how to train a model to recognize dog images from cat images.

    We use Keras, an easy to use python deep learning library that sits on top of Tensorflow, and “fine-tuning”, a very important skill for any deep learning practitioner, to train a model to classify the images.

    Once we trained our model to classify dogs from cats images with high accuracy, we dig into the details of the trained model and look at its building blocks, i.e., Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), Fully Connected Block and activation functions to develop an understanding of how the deep learning model works.

  • The Cognitive Bank: Leveraging Advanced Analytics and Artificial Intelligence
    The Cognitive Bank: Leveraging Advanced Analytics and Artificial Intelligence Vivek Bajaj, Global VP of Solutions for IBM Financial Services Recorded: Sep 21 2017 63 mins
    Today the payments industry faces a rebirth by necessity. Financial institutions process massive volumes of customer and payments transaction data, much of it unstructured and untapped.

    Cognitive Systems have the ability to understand, reason and learn. In Financial Services applying cognitive capabilities to real world payments issues like safer and faster payments is yielding significant results. Furthermore Risk and Compliance and segment of one engagement are areas where ROI is tremendous when leveraging advanced analytics and artificial intelligence in cohesion.

    Learn from real world use cases of how financial institutions globally have gained significant competitive advantage by becoming a truly Cognitive Bank.

  • Using Machine Learning in Software License Discovery for Greater SAM Maturity
    Using Machine Learning in Software License Discovery for Greater SAM Maturity Bill Dyck, Nick Rendall Recorded: Sep 13 2017 56 mins
    Accurate software asset management (SAM) is critical to a company’s IT operations in order to optimize usage and cost, and ensure that license compliance is achieved to avoid true-ups and penalties. Keeping a company’s software application library up-to-date for SAM has been a continuous struggle for asset managers given the time it takes for manual entry of new titles, the changing information in software titles, and the sheer number of titles across an enterprise organization. Every software title not recognized in their library causes potential license compliance breaches (leading to true-ups and potential fines) and reduces an organization’s ability to optimize their software license usage for cost optimization.

    Micro Focus (HPE Software) has added the industry leading IDOL unstructured search engine to add machine learning to Universal Discovery, drastically improving in the process of software license recognition and teaching for quicker software license recognition and a consistently up-to-date SAI over time. Join us on September 13th for an introduction to this exciting new capability and to understand the business value it can bring to your SAM program.

    • Introduction to machine learning and the IDOL engine
    • Machine learning in Universal Discovery
