  • Demystifying Machine Learning (ML) - What it is and What it is NOT. Aug 20 2019 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Prashanth Southekal,PhD Managing Principal at DBP-Institute
    Today almost every organization in the world is exploring opportunities to leverage data for business performance. Machine learning (ML) is an emerging field within Artificial Intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to learn using data without being explicitly programmed. However, given that ML is an emerging field, there still is lot of confusion and misunderstanding on ML in many industry sectors. In this webinar, Prashanth Southekal will talk about the key characteristics of ML using the business forecasting as an example. The learning objective of this webinar is to help managers and C-suite with information on the ML dependencies, complexities, and resource needs for the successful deployment of ML solutions in their organization.
  • Health, not just healthcare: a data-driven approach Jun 12 2019 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Kallol Mahata, Co-Founder & COO, PCIC
    Our current health system in the United States operates in a silo model that is plagued by broken feedback loops that lead to misaligned incentives between payers, providers, managed care organizations, and social service agencies. A dearth of communication and interoperability between systems contributes to uncontrolled costs and missed opportunities to improve operational efficiency. Furthermore, the most vulnerably patients - individuals who experience adverse social determinants of health in addition to medical and/or behavioral challenges – are often excluded or made worse by the system’s inability to coordinate care across social and medical domains. With a universe of data at our fingertips, we can and must find creative solutions to these problems.

    By bringing together social and medical data, we can see a more global view of the healthcare system – more specifically, where it’s working and failing. By linking social and medical utilization data from the whole ecosystem of care, we quickly see overlaps in care, avoidable redundancies in services used, and unmet needs on a population level. We integrate these insights into a comprehensive health management system that supports shared care plans between social and medical agencies, providing a holistic view of patient needs through real-time dashboards.

    While we have a long way to go to fix our healthcare system, we have the data to help move us towards a more equitable solution, where healthcare can be affordable and accessible to all in our communities.

  • Building a Strong Foundation: An Architect’s Perspective on Inclusion Recorded: Mar 7 2019 38 mins
    Parul Vyas, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP
    In recent years, diversity has come a long way nationally and internationally. Current data suggests that we still face challenges to engage diversity with inclusion. Per recent reports, the architecture/construction sector still lags and in need to empower women, practice equity and promote diversity.

    This presentation will review national efforts for D&I - where we were and where we are now.
    We will try to understand the concept/forms of exclusion and how our efforts both at a personal level and professional level can eliminate it. Eventually, it is not about being a woman or a minority, it is about becoming aware of exclusive behavior and cultivating inclusive thoughts and actions.

    1. Attendees will be able to understand the importance of inclusion & its relation to diversity. It is
    very easy to exclude.
    2. Participants will learn about women in the field of architecture and construction, challenges we
    face and what the industry is doing to empower us.
    3. We will discuss how to enhance relationships by valuing and respecting ethnic, cultural
    differences and accommodating different stages of lives we all are in.

  • Challenges Transitioning Machine Learning from Prototyping to Production Grade Recorded: Oct 23 2018 64 mins
    Santi Adavani, Co-Founder of RocketML
    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.
  • Building Modern Apps at Cloud Scale with Data Services Recorded: Sep 19 2018 61 mins
    Kannan Muthukkaruppan, Co-Founder and CEO of YugaByte
    A number of modern, geo-distributed apps are being built in verticals such as retail, finance and SaaS. In an increasingly multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud world, the applications are becoming portable, but the databases are not. Enterprises are seeking to re-platform the data layer for scalability, developer friendliness and cloud-neutrality.

    The transactional database tier powering these apps has been a high-latency, hard-to-scale, master-slave RDBMS for a long time. Multi-master configurations or the use of a separate NoSQL DB (for multi-region data distribution) are common solutions. However, none of these solutions achieve the desired business outcomes of high customer satisfaction, increased data protection, and regulatory compliance.

    This talk will dive into how it is necessary to unify the best of SQL and NoSQL into one database in order to deliver the above business outcomes, and how YugaByte is helping democratize the transactional database layer by offering a single non-proprietary database that can span public and private clouds. YugaByte’s value proposition is strong for both CIOs, who can avoid cloud vendor lock-in at the database layer, and for developers, who don’t have to re-architect existing applications because of YugaByte’s built-in native compatibility to popular NoSQL and SQL interfaces.

    The Webinar is hosted by Fundoo.info along with IITAGH Board Members.
  • Scaling Agile with SAFe and Metronome Recorded: Sep 18 2018 62 mins
    Sudi Sankavaram, CIO, Radus Technology Solutions
    Teams have been adopting and practicing Agile for years. Scrum and Kanban are two popular approaches used by agile teams to plan and iterate their development cycles. While these approaches have transformed software development for individual teams, they lack the constructs needed to synchronize multiple teams, provide Companies with a mechanism to adapt to change, and deliver enterprise software and systems in the shortest sustainable lead time. The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) leverages Agile practices and Lean product development to coordinate planning and delivery for multiple agile teams. This approach to scaling agile has led to the following benefits:

    · Increase in solution quality

    · Increase in productivity

    · Increased employee engagement

    · Faster time to market

    · Better predictability

    · Improved transparency

    Join Radus Software for a 45 minute webinar to discuss scaling agile. Our experts will provide an overview of agile maturity, discuss the tipping points for scaling agile, and highlight the various levels of SAFe to help Organizations determine the best fit for their transition from agile teams to agile programs and/or portfolios. and how Metronome our SAFe ALM the first and only platform built specifically for SAFe from the ground-up, can help you with this journey through scaling your agile environment..

  • A 3 step Framework for a Product Manager to Prioritize in a Complex Ecosystem Recorded: Jul 13 2018 46 mins
    Sundar Balasubramanian, Director of Product Management at Intuit
    A Product Manager has the unenviable task of prioritization, balancing several short and long-term objectives to arrive at the what and when for the product team. For an early stage product, stack ranking priorities might be sufficient. For a mature product, the challenge is often deciding what not to focus on at any given time because several areas will need at least a minimum level of investment to continue to serve your customers and stay competitive. The right prioritization framework, therefore, depends on the factors such as maturity of the product, organization and competitive environment.

  • Enterprise Artificial Intelligence Recorded: Jun 25 2018 39 mins
    Rajkumar Vaidyanathan,Senior Director & Principal Data Scientist at Noodle.ai
    Enterprises are a complex ecosystem where multiple business entities interact in highly non-linear and iterative fashion often resulting in operational chaos. Human stakeholders tend to make decisions based on intuition and limited perspective. AI and machine learning algorithms can augment these decision-making processes by removing guess-work to a large extent. This enables reduction of cognitive bias that may exist. Enterprise AI is a convergence of business context, design & human factors, technology and data science. The talk will give an insight into what type of challenges exist in an enterprise and how a data-driven AI solution can help augment the theory-based models to improve the overall operational efficiency.
