  • Take Advantage of Business Moments with Apache Kafka
    Take Advantage of Business Moments with Apache Kafka Bill McLane, Product Evangelist, TIBCO Software Recorded: Oct 15 2018 23 mins
    Sometimes a moment is all you have.

    A successful digital business must be able to detect and intelligently respond in real-time to business moments. Either to take advantage of an opportunity or to prevent a tragic loss, these moments and how we respond to them define our organization’s success or failures as well as our path forward.

    These moments could be focused on improving the customer experience, gaining operational efficiencies, or mitigating risks. At the very center of such moments lies an architecture that has the ability to move information between disparate systems or devices and to identify the meaningful events within the ever-increasing volumes of data.

    This is what Apache Kafka was designed to do. Kafka is a streaming platform based on a distributed, persistent, publish-subscribe logging system.

  • Multifactor Password-Free Security for Computer Access
    Multifactor Password-Free Security for Computer Access Ravin Sanjith, Program Director, Opus Research | John Spencer, Chief Product Officer, Veridium Recorded: Oct 11 2018 57 mins
    The ‘mobile first’ movement has resulted in most UX investments being focused on smartphones, tablets, smart home devices, etc. However, the faithful computer and laptop continues to be the workhorse of the masses and is where the most demanding and high-security tasks are performed. So why is it that there are no user-friendly and secure solutions for authenticating into computers and laptops?

    The insecurity of passwords is a UX problem, and shortcuts to make them easier lead to security risks, which lead to breaches. Most of the much-publicized mega-data breaches the past few years have been because of compromised or stolen passwords. According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Incident Report, faulty passwords were responsible for 63% of all confirmed data breaches between 2016 and 2017.

    Finally, the combination of sensor-rich smartphones and biometric authentication are making it possible to eliminate passwords entirely.

    Using Veridium’s solutions, the challenges of unlocking and logging into a workstation have been overcome. In this webinar, you will enter a world that has continuous seamless logins with little friction. That world is being made possible through Veridium’s disruptive approach to authentication.

    In this webinar you will learn how:
    - Enable secure passwordless logins online and offline
    - Advanced smartphone capabilities can be leveraged to improve access
    - To reduce the risk of large-scale data breaches by eliminating passwords

  • 3D Organ-on-a-chip Applications Using the AIM Biotech Chip
    3D Organ-on-a-chip Applications Using the AIM Biotech Chip Kuan Chee Mun and Mahama Aziz Traore Oct 22 2018 1:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    In vitro 3D cell culture models have emerged as a bridge between conventional 2D cell culture models and the complex & expensive in vivo animal models. By analyzing and comparing the biological behavior of tissues embedded in 3 dimensional hydrogels, results are significantly different from classic 2D cell culture in terms of proliferation, morphology, drug response and gene expression. These differences have been attributed to the topographically complex 3D environment surrounding the cells, where cell adhesion, structure, effector transport and mechanotransduction are substantially altered. A carefully designed 3D model can provide more physiologically relevant information using experimental designs unachievable by conventional 2D assays at a fraction of the cost of in vivo models.
    Current 3D cell culture assays like hanging drop culture often lack the capability to organize different co-cultured cell types in a meaningful way. The application of chemical gradients or flow is usually not possible.
    We are now able to address this issue with a modular microfluidic platform that can co-culture multiple cell types in discrete 3D and 2D channels. Organotypic assays with animal model-like complexities using human cells have been developed for research, drug discovery & diagnostics. These include models for immune checkpoint, T-cell killing efficiency, angiogenesis, metastasis, cell migration, microvascular networks and the blood-brain barrier. Additional applications that focus on a liver model will also be discussed. Drug Induced Liver Injuries (DILI) contributes to drug failures, drug withdrawals and acute liver failures. The liver strongly interacts with other organ systems and in some instances the metabolites secreted by the liver are responsible for other organs' injury. Engineered 3D liver models may increase the physiological relevance of drug toxicity by maintaining the expression levels of key cytochrome P450 enzymes and metabolic activity in liver cells.

  • [Ep.1] What's Big in BI: An Ethical Foundation for the AI-Driven Future
    [Ep.1] What's Big in BI: An Ethical Foundation for the AI-Driven Future Harry Glaser, Co-founder and CEO of Periscope Data and Erin Junio, Content Manager at BrightTALK Oct 23 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's What's Big in BI series.

    What is the moral responsibility of a data team today? As artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies become part of our everyday life and as data and big data insights become accessible to everyone, CDOs and data teams are taking on a very important moral role as the conscience of the corporation.

    In this episode of What's Big in BI, Harry Glaser highlights the risks companies will face if they don't empower data teams to lead the way for ethical data use across a variety of functions including business intelligence, analytics, big data initiatives and more.

    Harry founded Periscope Data in 2012 with co-founder Tom O’Neill. The two have grown Periscope Data to serve more than 1000 customers. Glaser was previously at Google, and graduated from the University of Rochester with a bachelor’s degree in computer science.
  • Debunking Customer Experience Myths
    Debunking Customer Experience Myths Lynn Hunsaker Oct 23 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ask ten people what customer experience or customer-centricity means and you could get ten different answers. This is a grave concern as studies show 90% of executives say customer experience is mission-critical. Like any hot topic, everyone wants to join the bandwagon, claiming their products and services enhance customer experience and customer-centricity. This has muddied the waters as mainstream adoption follows what’s advocated by the biggest marketing budgets and as benchmarking studies underscore mainstream practices.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Lynn Hunsaker, Chief Customer Officer of ClearAction Continuum, for this free, one-hour webinar. Lynn will go beyond “best-practice” to a clear view of what’s what in customer experience and customer-centricity. Recent studies show that no brands today – even the ones perpetually at the top of the most admired companies lists – are performing to customer experience quality expectations.

    In this webinar, we’ll take a look at who’s doing best, and what’s still needed to deliver the financial promises of a truly customer-centric business. Join us to 1) Get real: what’s customer experience and what’s customer-centricity from customers’ viewpoint? 2) Raise your game: practical ways to leapfrog current practices to achieve higher performance, and 3) Keep it real: how to instill momentum to make highly profitable customer-centricity a way of life.

    Challenges Transitioning Machine Learning from Prototyping to Production Grade Santi Adavani, Co-Founder of RocketML Oct 23 2018 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The artificial intelligence revolution is being enabled by the rapid increase in data, computing power in the cloud, and hardware accelerators like GPUs and algorithm innovations. However, only < 5% of organizations have adopted or deployed AI in their operations and > 80% are gathering knowledge and prototyping.

    In this webinar, we identify the challenges of transitioning from Prototype to Production. We break them down into four categories of challenges:

    1) Code portability,
    2) Scalability,
    3) Hyperparameter optimization or Automated machine learning, and
    4) Model Deployment.

    In this talk, we will address challenges 1 & 2 using RocketML to aid in building production-grade AI applications. These techniques will not only improve data scientists' productivity, but will also reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to market incumbents.

    The webinar is hosted by Fundoo.info and moderated by IITAGH Board Member.

  • The Rise of Exponential Organizations (ExO)
    The Rise of Exponential Organizations (ExO) Salim Ismail Oct 24 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A new technology that scales quickly from one to a million users has become a common and straightforward phenomenon. Scaling an organization at exponential speed, however, is quite another matter. Organizational growth is usually linear—incremental and slow. In recent years, however, exponential organizations (ExOs) such as Oculus, Airbnb, WhatsApp, and DropBox have experienced dramatic growth trajectories and achieved multi-billion dollar valuations in just a few years.

    Unlike traditional businesses that combine assets and workforces within organizational boundaries, ExOs leverage the world around them, such as other people’s cars and spare rooms. In some cases, they are outperforming their competitors by as much as tenfold.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for one of the most interesting presentations you will attend all year. Scott's special guest presenter is Salim Ismail, the best-selling author of Exponential Organizations, a sought-after business strategist, and a serial entrepreneur, having founded technology companies including Ångströ, which was acquired by Google in 2010. He is also the Founding Executive Director of Singularity University.

    Salim is a prolific speaker, having given more than 100 talks in 2017 to audiences of all sizes in 12 different countries. He has been profiled across a vast array of media outlets, including The New York Times, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Fortune, Forbes, WIRED, Vogue, and the BBC.
