  • Semantic AI: Bringing Machine Learning and Knowledge Graphs Together
    Semantic AI: Bringing Machine Learning and Knowledge Graphs Together Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Booz Allen Hamilton & Andreas Blumauer, CEO, Managing Partner Semantic Web Company May 23 2018 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Implementing AI applications based on machine learning is a significant topic for organizations embracing digital transformation. By 2020, 30% of CIOs will include AI in their top five investment priorities according to Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2018: Intelligent Apps and Analytics. But to deliver on the AI promise, organizations need to generate good quality data to train the algorithms. Failure to do so will result in the following scenario: "When you automate a mess, you get an automated mess."

    This webinar covers:

    - An introduction to machine learning use cases and challenges provided by Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton and top data science and big data influencer.
    - How to achieve good data quality based on harmonized semantic metadata presented by Andreas Blumauer, CEO and co-founder of Semantic Web Company and a pioneer in the application of semantic web standards for enterprise data integration.
    - How to apply a combined approach when semantic knowledge models and machine learning build the basis of your cognitive computing. (See Attachment: The Knowledge Graph as the Default Data Model for Machine Learning)
    - Why a combination of machine and human computation approaches is required, not only from an ethical but also from a technical perspective.

  • Does it matter if an algorithm can't explain how it knows what it knows?
    Does it matter if an algorithm can't explain how it knows what it knows? Beau Walker, Founder, Method Data Science May 24 2018 3:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becoming enforceable in the EU on May 25, 2018, many data scientists are worried about the impact that this regulation and similar initiatives in other countries that give consumers a "right to explanation" of decisions made by algorithms will have on the field of predictive and prescriptive analytics.

    In this session, Beau will discuss the role of interpretable algorithms in data science as well as explore tools and methods for explaining high-performing algorithms.

    Beau Walker has a Juris Doctorate (law degree) and BS and MS Degrees in Biology and Ecology and Evolution. Beau has worked in many domains including academia, pharma, healthcare, life sciences, insurance, legal, financial services, marketing, and IoT.

  • How to Bring BI into the Big Data World
    How to Bring BI into the Big Data World Claudia Imhoff, renowned analyst & Founder - Boulder BI Brain Trust and Ajay Anand, VP Products & Marketing - Kyvos Insights May 25 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Business intelligence (BI) has been at the forefront of business decision-making for more than two decades. Then along came Big Data and it was thought that traditional BI technologies could never handle the volumes and performance issues associated with this unusual source of data.

    So what do you do? Cast aside this critical form of analysis? Hardly a good answer. The better answer is to look for BI technologies that can keep up with Big Data, provide the same level of performance regardless of the volume or velocity of the data being analyzed, yet give the BI-savvy business users the familiar interface and multi-dimensionality they have come to know and love.

    This webinar will present the findings from a recent survey of Big Data and the challenges and value many organizations have received from their implementations. In addition, the survey will supply a fascinating look into what Big Data technologies are most commonly used, the types of workloads supported, the most important capabilities for these platforms, the value and operational insights derived from the analytics performed in the environment, and the common use cases.

    Attendees will also learn about a new BI technology built to handle Big Data queries with superior levels of scalability, performance and support for concurrent users. BI on Big Data platforms enables organizations to provide self-service and interactive on big data for all of their users across the enterprise.

    Yes, now you CAN have BI on Big Data platforms!

  • Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (EMEA)
    Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (EMEA) Rick van der Lans, Independent Business Intelligence Analyst and Lakshmi Randall, Director of Product Marketing, Denodo May 30 2018 8:30 am UTC 45 mins
    Data lakes are centralized data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically
    copied to a data lake which serves as a one storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system.
    So, what’s the solution?
    A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimizing the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.

    Attend this session to learn:

    • Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
    • Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
    • How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.

    Do not miss this opportunity to make your data lake project successful and beneficial.

    At most organizations, conference rooms are less than perfect--and that affects the productivity of any meeting. Inconsistency is the cornerstone of meeting room space, whether it's the power outlet locations, wired or wireless connectivity, brand of digital whiteboard, or video conferencing capabilities. That's why many companies are investing in "Conference Room of the Future" initiatives.

    Nemertes recently conducted research among 600+ global organizations, and this webinar will focus on best practices.

    It will address the following:
    • What technologies are crucial to effective meetings?
    • Who should run the meeting-room overhauls for the most success --IT or facilities?
    • What are the differences between smaller, huddle rooms and large conference rooms, in terms of user expectations?
    • How do advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence and Internet of Things, play a role in meeting rooms?
    • What should IT leaders look for in management and monitoring tools?

    We look forward to sharing this information with you and answering your questions!
