  • Build, Scale, and Deploy Deep Learning Pipelines with Ease
    Build, Scale, and Deploy Deep Learning Pipelines with Ease Sue Ann Hong, Tim Hunter and Jules S. Damji Recorded: Jul 27 2017 62 mins
    Deep Learning has shown a tremendous success, yet it often requires a lot of effort to leverage its power. Existing Deep Learning frameworks require writing a lot of code to work with a model, let alone in a distributed manner.

    This webinar is the first of a series in which we survey the state of Deep Learning at scale, and where we introduce the Deep Learning Pipelines, a new open-source package for Apache Spark. This package simplifies Deep Learning in three major ways:

    1. It has a simple API that integrates well with enterprise Machine Learning pipelines.
    2. It automatically scales out common Deep Learning patterns, thanks to Spark.
    3. It enables exposing Deep Learning models through the familiar Spark APIs, such as MLlib and Spark SQL.

    In this webinar, we will look at a complex problem of image classification, using Deep Learning and Spark. Using Deep Learning Pipelines, we will show:

    * how to build deep learning models in a few lines of code;
    * how to scale common tasks like transfer learning and prediction; and
    * how to publish models in Spark SQL.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go
    Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage-Turquoise: Where Does My Data Go Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, Scott Shadley, Micron, J Metz, Cisco, Chad Hintz, Cisco Aug 1 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    In this, the seventh entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into the mysticism and magic of what happens when you send your data off into the wilderness. Once you click “save,” for example, where does it actually go?

    When we start to dig deeper beyond the application layer, we often don’t understand what happens behind the scenes. It’s important to understand multiple aspects of the type of storage our data goes to along with their associated benefits and drawbacks as well as some of the protocols used to transport it.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Volatile v Non-Volatile v Persistent Memory
    •NVDIMM v RAM v DRAM v SLC v MLC v TLC v NAND v 3D NAND v Flash v SSDs v NVMe
    •NVMe (the protocol)

    Many people get nervous when they see that many acronyms, but all too often they come up in conversation, and you’re expected to know all of them? Worse, you’re expected to know the differences between them, and the consequences of using them? Even worse, you’re expected to know what happens when you use the wrong one?

    We’re here to help.

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Please join us on August 1st for another edition of the “Too Proud To Ask” series, as we work towards making you feel more comfortable in the strange, mystical world of storage.
  • Using Big Data & Machine Learning to Uncover Hidden Cyber Threats
    Using Big Data & Machine Learning to Uncover Hidden Cyber Threats Ofir Barzilay, VP R&D at Cyberbit Endpoint Detection & Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst, Interarbor Solutions Aug 1 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As we’ve learned from the recent WannaCry and Petya attacks, attackers can now bypass not only antivirus systems but more advanced, next-generation security systems and put large enterprises out of service.  Today, detecting advanced attacks requires understanding their behavioral patterns and analyzing massive amounts of data in near real time. This can be achieved by using machine learning, behavioral analysis and big data security analytics.

    Join us on this webcast and learn how Cyberbit Endpoint Detection is using next generation technologies originally developed for confidential military projects, to detect threats that outsmart conventional security solutions.

    What you will learn:

    -Why most organizations are vulnerable to advanced cyberattacks even after deploying security systems
    -How behavioral detection and machine learning can surface a cyber threat that penetrated the organization - before damage was done.
    -How you can detect zero-day attacks and accelerate response and slash SOC operation cost
    -How Cyberbit uses Vertica with near real-time data ingestion and advanced data transformation from hundreds of thousands endpoints
  • Precision Hunting with Artificial Intelligence
    Precision Hunting with Artificial Intelligence Josh Zelonis, Senior Analyst at Forrester, and Stephen Pieraldi, Senior Director of AI and ML at E8 Security Aug 1 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    You know it already: artificial intelligence (AI) is key to making sense of big data -- it’s the only way to scale security data analytics, because the “spray and pray” shotgun approach is too expensive and too imprecise to combat advanced attacks.
