  • Hunting Criminals with Hybrid Analytics, Semi-supervised Learning, & Feedback Recorded: Aug 23 2017 62 mins
    David Talby, CTO, Atigeo
    Fraud detection is a classic adversarial analytics challenge: As soon as an automated system successfully learns to stop one scheme, fraudsters move on to attack another way. Each scheme requires looking for different signals (i.e. features) to catch; is relatively rare (one in millions for finance or e-commerce); and may take months to investigate a single case (in healthcare or tax, for example) – making quality training data scarce.

    This talk will cover a code walk-through, the key lessons learned while building such real-world software systems over the past few years. We'll look for fraud signals in public email datasets, using IPython and popular open-source libraries (scikit-learn, statsmodel, nltk, etc.) for data science and Apache Spark as the compute engine for scalable parallel processing.

    David will iteratively build a machine-learned hybrid model – combining features from different data sources and algorithmic approaches, to catch diverse aspects of suspect behavior:

    - Natural language processing: finding keywords in relevant context within unstructured text
    - Statistical NLP: sentiment analysis via supervised machine learning
    - Time series analysis: understanding daily/weekly cycles and changes in habitual behavior
    - Graph analysis: finding actions outside the usual or expected network of people
    - Heuristic rules: finding suspect actions based on past schemes or external datasets
    - Topic modeling: highlighting use of keywords outside an expected context
    - Anomaly detection: Fully unsupervised ranking of unusual behavior

    Apache Spark is used to run these models at scale – in batch mode for model training and with Spark Streaming for production use. We’ll discuss the data model, computation, and feedback workflows, as well as some tools and libraries built on top of the open-source components to enable faster experimentation, optimization, and productization of the models.
  • Toward Internet of Everything: Architectures, Standards, & Interoperability Recorded: Jun 21 2017 63 mins
    Ram D. Sriram, Chief of the Software and Systems Division, IT Lab at National Institute of Standards and Technology
    In this talk, Ram will provide a unified framework for Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Smart Networked Systems and Societies, and then discuss the role of ontologies for interoperability.

    The Internet, which has spanned several networks in a wide variety of domains, is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. These networks are currently being extended to have significant sensing capabilities, with the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). With additional control, we are entering the era of Cyber-physical Systems (CPS). In the near future, the networks will go beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal-information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks.

    This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of people (social networks), smart devices, and smartphones or mobile personal computing and communication devices that will form smart net-centric systems and societies (SNSS) or Internet of Everything. These devices – and the network -- will be constantly sensing, monitoring, interpreting, and controlling the environment.

    A key technical challenge for realizing SNSS/IoE is that the network consists of things (both devices & humans) which are heterogeneous, yet need to be interoperable. In other words, devices and people need to interoperate in a seamless manner. This requires the development of standard terminologies (or ontologies) which capture the meaning and relations of objects and events. Creating and testing such terminologies will aid in effective recognition and reaction in a network-centric situation awareness environment.

    Before joining the Software and Systems Division (his current position), Ram was the leader of the Design and Process group in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division, Manufacturing Engineering Lab, where he conducted research on standards for interoperability of computer-aided design systems.

  • The Role of FPGAs in SparK Accelerators Recorded: Aug 29 2016 61 mins
    Shreyas Shah, Principal Data center Architect, Xilinx
    In the cloud computing era, data growth is exponential. Every day billions of photos are shared and large amount of new data created in multiple formats. Within this cloud of data, the relevant data with real monetary value is small. To extract the valuable data, big data analytics frame works like SparK is used. This can run on top of a variety of file systems and data bases. To accelerate the SparK by 10-1000x, customers are creating solutions like log file accelerators, storage layer accelerators, MLLIB (One of the SparK library) accelerators, and SQL accelerators etc.

    FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) are the ideal fit for these type of accelerators where the workloads are constantly changing. For example, they can accelerate different algorithms on different data based on end users and the time of the day, but keep the same hardware.

    This webinar will describe the role of FPGAs in SparK accelerators and give SparK accelerator use cases.
  • Using Predictive Analytics to optimize Application operations: Can you dig it? Recorded: Jul 22 2016 23 mins
    Lesley-Anne Wilson, Group Product Rollout & Support Engineer, Digicel Group
    Many studies have been done on the benefits of Predictive Analytics on customer engagement in order to change customer behaviour. However, the side less romanticized is the benefit to IT operations as it is sometimes difficult to turn the focus from direct revenue impacting gain to the more indirect revenue gains that can come from optimization and pro-active issue resolution.

    I will be speaking, from an application operations engineers perspective, on the benefits to the business of using Predictive Analytics to optimize applications.

The benefits of big data (especially high-variety data) will be demonstrated with simple examples that can be applied to significant use cases.

    The goal of data science in this case is to discover predictive power and prescriptive power from your data collections, in order to achieve optimal decisions and outcomes.
  • Live Webinar: Overcoming the Storage Challenges Cassandra and Couchbase Create Recorded: Jun 30 2016 53 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    NoSQL databases like Cassandra and Couchbase are quickly becoming key components of the modern IT infrastructure. But this modernization creates new challenges – especially for storage. Storage in the broad sense. In-memory databases perform well when there is enough memory available. However, when data sets get too large and they need to access storage, application performance degrades dramatically. Moreover, even if enough memory is available, persistent client requests can bring the servers to their knees.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Plexistor where you will learn:

    1. What is Cassandra and Couchbase?
    2. Why organizations are adopting them?
    3. What are the storage challenges they create?
    4. How organizations attempt to workaround these challenges.
    5. How to design a solution to these challenges instead of a workaround.
