  • Developing a successful brand protection strategy Developing a successful brand protection strategy Joel Stobart, CTO of Brand Custodian, and Jeff Moore, Operations Director at AAL Recorded: Feb 22 2017 50 mins
    Counterfeit medicines cause an estimated 170,000 deaths a year, with the WHO estimating more than 120,000 people a year die in Africa as a result of fake anti-malarial drugs. This is also having an incredibly harmful impact on the brands and companies who are being imitated.

    Emerging economies, particularly in South East Asia, present a real challenge for companies who are keen to expand internationally while defending their brand and products against counterfeiters. A robust brand protection strategy is required, but distance, culture, technology, and different levels of intellectual property protection can create an extremely difficult environment in which to operate.

    Brand protection is still a niche activity, but companies are starting to realise that brand protection offers a real chance to materially affect the bottom line of their business, show their respect for consumers and deliver the consumers’ expectation of products.

    Joel Stobart is Chief Technology Officer at Custodian Solutions; a novel brand protection company that uses cloud-based software to re-think and re-design the way brand protection is carried out, joins us alongside Jeff Moore, Operations Director at AAL; a Global Intelligence consultancy who manage investigations and provide solutions to clients brand protection issues worldwide – for this webinar on brand protection strategies for intellectual property owners operating in South East Asia.

  • Machine Learning towards Precision Medicine Machine Learning towards Precision Medicine Paul Hellwig Director, Research & Development, at Elsevier Health Analytics Recorded: Feb 16 2017 47 mins
    Medicine is complex. Correlations between diseases, medications, symptoms, lab data and genomics are of a complexity that cannot be fully comprehended by humans anymore. Machine learning methods are required that help mining these correlations. But a pure technological or algorithm-driven approach will not suffice. We need to get physicians and other domain experts on board, we need to gain their trust in the predictive models we develop.

    Elsevier Health Analytics has developed a first version of the Medical Knowledge Graph, which identifies correlations (ideally: causations) between diseases, and between diseases and treatments. On a dataset comprising 6 million patient lives we have calculated 2000+ models predicting the development of diseases. Every model adjusts for ~3000 covariates. Models are based on linear algorithms. This allows a graphical visualization of correlations that medical personnel can work with.

  • Evolving the Industrial IoT Into Strategic Advantage Evolving the Industrial IoT Into Strategic Advantage Bill Roberts, Director, Global IoT Practice, SAS; Ted Connell, Director, Solution Architect Group, Intel Recorded: Feb 15 2017 56 mins
    Heavy industry was first to arrive at the IoT party, quickly recognizing the potential to augment existing processes and establish new protocols. As a result, organizations that embraced the industrial internet of things (IIoT) have been at the forefront of fine-tuning applications and establishing best practices. And while many of those practices have turned out to be impactful, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that the opportunity is much bigger with predictive analytics.

    We’ve entered a perfect storm where the falling costs of capturing, processing and analyzing data coincide with the explosion of data streams generated by millions of pieces of connected equipment, devices and systems. And the same technology that created the perfect storm has empowered customers with near-instant data and instantaneous engagement with each other and also with your organization. So the opportunities extend beyond tactical process improvements and have become both strategic and enterprise-wide.

    Recognizing and capitalizing on the opportunities requires an evolution of skills and mindset, made possible with key technology relationships. The Industrial IoT collaboration between SAS and Intel enables organizations to capture, process and analyze data. The end result is the ability to evolve their strategic advantage and realize the full value of their IIoT data.

    Tune in to this webinar to gain insights and best practices for evolving the industrial IoT into strategic advantage for your organization.

  • Getting Beyond the Hype: Why Hadoop is not a Panacea for All Things Big Data Getting Beyond the Hype: Why Hadoop is not a Panacea for All Things Big Data Bill Theisinger, YP and Ben Smith, HPE Mar 2 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    You can’t talk about big data today without hearing about Hadoop. For many people, Hadoop is synonymous with big data, but it’s not necessarily the best tool for every use case and every project. Before committing to it, businesses need to ignore the hype, look at their needs, and determine if and where Hadoop fits into their big data initiatives.

    Join Bill Theisinger, vice president of engineering for platform data services at YP(sm), formerly known as YellowPages.com, to hear how his company is maximizing the value they get from Hadoop by supplementing it with HPE Vertica, an analytical database.

  • Data Visualization IS NOT Self Service BI - The Case for IoT in BI Data Visualization IS NOT Self Service BI - The Case for IoT in BI Lee Hermon, Sisense Engagement Manager and Adi Azaria, Sisense Chief Evangelist Recorded: Feb 15 2017 27 mins
    Businesses today already know that visualization in business intelligence is an essential part of competitive success. Yet, too many organizations are falling behind because of the inability to keep up with demand for information. One mistake is thinking that self-serve data visualization is all they need when setting up a self-service BI environment.

    Debunking the common myth, we will explore why data visualization IS NOT self-service BI. The only way for Information workers to become more self-sufficient is by having a BI environment that is more usable but also more consumable. It is these two themes—usability and consumability - that play crucial roles in a fully functioning self-service BI environment. Using modern IoT technologies, the modern business can expand access and consumability of data by engaging the human senses of sight, sound, and touch.

    Join Lee Hermon, Sisense Engagement Manager, as he explores the limitations of current Self Service Visualization models and Adi Azaria, Sisense co-founder & Chief Evangelist as he introduces how IoT in Business Intelligence is changing the game.

    According to recent research, “67% of high-performing CEOs are actively embracing agility, and 100% of them state that their companies actively experiment with new products and services.”* To deliver what customers really want, improve your bottom line and see teams really engage, you need to go beyond sprints and standups to business-level agile.
