    Trust, Transparency, and the Opportunity of Artificial Intelligence
    Richard Tibbetts - Product Manager, AI, Tableau | Kris Skrinak - Machine Learning Lead, AWS Recorded: Feb 20 2019 57 mins
    The promise of artificial intelligence (AI) is that machines will help humans make better decisions. In some cases decisions are automated away; in other cases humans collaborate with AI to make the best decisions. In all cases, people need to understand what machines are doing, to avoid mistakes, to make ethical decisions, and to understand their data.

    Gartner research indicates “85% of CIOs will be piloting artificial intelligence programs through a combination of buy, build, and outsource efforts.” But as organisations become more reliant on AI and machine learning models, how can humans be sure they are receiving trustworthy answers to the right questions?

  • Empower your Enterprise with a Self-Service Data Marketplace
    Empower your Enterprise with a Self-Service Data Marketplace
    Aashish Majethia, Senior Solutions Engineer Recorded: Feb 13 2019 38 mins
    Analysts need timely access to enterprise data in order to stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing environment. Typically, business users need to request access through the IT department, which can be a waiting game, either because of technological roadblocks, governance restrictions or both. This adds more work, more process, and more frustration on both sides. Having the ability to find data sets, examine, update, and provision the data themselves allows business users to move quickly and frees IT to work on higher priority items.

    A modern data platform should provide a self-service data marketplace that gives right-sized governed access to data. The security permissions allow IT to define who needs access to the correct data at the appropriate stage of the data pipeline. This becomes quite complicated in regulated environments. Users should be able to search for data they have access to, explore and potentially update the metadata associated, and provision it into a sandbox when ready.

    Join us as Aashish Majethia, a Senior Solutions Engineer, dives into the self-service data marketplace and what is required to make it successful. He will cover topics including:
    - Catalogs
    - Self-service data preparation
    - Governance considerations and how they can enable a more agile data-driven enterprise

  • Best Practices for Architecting Robust BGP Routing Policies – The Global Carrier
    Best Practices for Architecting Robust BGP Routing Policies – The Global Carrier
    Shawn Morris, Vice President of Systems, Applications and Software (SAS), Global IP Network, NTT Communications Recorded: Feb 13 2019 59 mins
    What actually makes good routing policies "good"? The telecoms industry has mostly focused on teaching each other how to implement BGP features in their networks, but there has been very little dialogue on how to design robust policies. Many global carriers do not even educate their customers on how to use and take advantage of them. In this webinar, NTT Communications and the Global IP Network will offer a conceptual model to look at routing policies, offer terminology to help discuss them, and analyse routing policy design patterns and best practices.

    NTT Communications will also share its experience from creating and deploying large scale complex routing policies in a carrier IP network that you can use to sharpen up your routing policy or even build one from scratch.

    The Best Way to Assess Incident Response Preparedness
    Jeff Laskowski, Security Consulting Director, FireEye Mandiant Feb 21 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Many breached organizations—of all sizes—believed they had effective security programs and incident response plans. Reality proved otherwise.
    Now, executive leaders are far more concerned with incident preparedness. When the Board asks, ‘How ready are we, really?’ your security team must have a defensible response.

    • Test your team’s detection and response capabilities to protect key assets against real-world targeted attacks—without the consequences of a real incident
    • Assess your organization’s crisis management capabilities through the lens of an executive team
    • Improve your team’s detection and response capabilities in accordance with the latest attacker tactics, techniques, and motivations

    Join this webinar today to learn what it takes for your team to know how they would perform under a real threat, before they actually have to.

    What makes data scientists happy? Of course data. They want it fast and flexible, and they want to do it themselves. But most classic data warehouses (DW) and data lakes are not easy to deal with for agile data access. A more practical solution is the logical data warehouse (LDW), which has shown to be a more agile foundation for delivering and transforming data and makes it easy to quickly plug in new data sources.

    Attend this webinar to learn:

    * How easily new data sources can be made available for analytics and data science
    * How your organization can successfully migrate to a flexible LDW architecture in a step-by-step fashion

    The Future of Marketing Emerging from Technology of Today: 3 things to watch
    Yana Lapitskaya - Managing Director, Yay!Starter Marketing; James Mclaughlin - Regional Account Manager, Intro Feb 26 2019 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Artificial intelligence has been around for a while and is already shaping the digital marketing – even if you haven’t noticed it. Every time you work with Google Ads – you are feeding in the data that informs Google’s AI enabling them to serve you with keyword suggestions, additional ad options and much more. Imagine this happening around the clock on a global scale! No wonder Google knows everything.

    Neuroscience has uncovered the decision-making process happening in our brain that advertisers knew very little about.

    Making advertisers understand how system 1 and system 2 brain works as well as their differences is like giving a video camera to someone used to drawing primitive pictures to capture and interpret the reality… It is changing the game forever – the TV, print and digital advertising will never be the same again! We are perhaps witnessing the biggest revolution in marketing since the launch of social media advertising.

    Blockchain is the newest kid on the block, and we are yet to see it manifesting itself in marketing but even now we can say it will go far beyond the cryptocurrency world, tokenizing and decentralizing the digital economy further.

    What does it all mean for you and your company?

    Sign up to our webinar ‘The Future of Marketing Emerging from Technology of Today: 3 things to watch closely’ to learn more about Artificial Intelligence, Neuroscience and Blockchain shaping the new marketing reality.
