Recent use cases include expert systems, workflow automation, pattern recognition across real-time data sets, customer relationship management with predictive behavior, and many more.
The models at the core of this revolution require data - data is the fuel that powers accurate models. How do you get the most from data and ensure it meets your requirements?
This webinar, in partnership with deepsense.ai will cover:
How to get started with defining AI project requirements and objectives
How to prioritize analytical projects in your company
The challenges involved in collecting and storing data and how to avoid them
How to extract values and eliminate complexities
What external sources you should use in your data pipeline
The telco edge can take many shapes depending on the geography, the existing network infrastructure, current and future services to be delivered. No two telcos, today, have the same perceived needs. Additionally, these needs might change drastically depending on what the future holds for new services such as 5G, IOT or AI at the edge.
Join Canonical’s telco team to hear about the strategies and tactics you can adopt to build an edge that can match your requirements of today and tomorrow.
Wide area networks, when managed inefficiently can prove costly for businesses as both hardware and the provisioning of geographically distributed devices can represent a hard cost.
Edge deployment costs can be measured in:
Capital and operational expenses
Real estate occupied
For businesses looking to set up servers in remote locations with remote site footprint constraints, MAAS provides a compelling model.

Edge clouds and devices are one of the fastest growth segments for cloud computing. This webinar will dive into the benefits of using Kubernetes as part of your edge strategy - for both edge clouds and edge devices.
We’ll also explore use cases, architecture, and tools that will help you at every stage of your development lifecycle - from development to production deployments at scale. Microk8s and Charmed Kubernetes will be explored in sufficient detail to get you started with Kubernetes on Ubuntu.
Put simply, edge computing is the method of processing data where it is being generated, at the edge of a network, allowing for real time data-processing without latency as opposed to sending it to a data centre. Since these ‘edge devices’ are integrated to the physical world and interact with people, it can be said that the edge is the physical location where things and people connect to the cloud.
The drive to edge computing has been born out of necessity as a result of the huge amounts of data being generated by devices. With the advancement of ‘smart-tech’ generating vast amounts of data daily, edge computing is here to stay and will continue to provide cost effective security assurances, speed of compute and scalability for businesses.
Join our upcoming webinar hosted by Galem Kayo, Ubuntu Product Manager to understand what is driving businesses to process their data at the edge and how you can add an edge computing layer to your business infrastructure.

Join this webinar to find out about the latest security features of
Ubuntu Core, the tiny, transactional version of Ubuntu designed
specifically for IoT. Learn about how Ubuntu Core leverages the latest
security enhancements from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and combines this with the
secure, always-up-to-date and transactional nature of snaps to provide
the best platform on which to build IoT devices. Alex Murray, Technical
Lead of the Ubuntu Security Team, also details upcoming security
enhancements on the future roadmap for Ubuntu Core.
Traditional development methods do not scale into the IoT sphere. Strong inter-dependencies and blurred boundaries among components in the edge device stack result in fragmentation, slow updates, security issues, increased cost, and reduced reliability of platforms. This webinar showcases the use of Ubuntu Core and snaps as an alternative to the existing model, with a strong focus on isolation, reliability and an accelerated development cycle.

Security remains the number one concern when designing and deploying IoT devices. High profile breaches continue to occur and concerns cease to subside. For any organisation, security needs to be front of mind and considered from the start - not as an afterthought. Having no mechanism in which to address security concerns can be as significant as threatening the survival of a business.
Many organisations have adopted Ubuntu Core to help manage the security and integrity of their IoT devices. Ubuntu Core features leading security credentials and protects against online threats. However, with many IoT devices deployed remotely, how can organisations ensure protection against physical access and the data on those devices?
This webinar gives a technical overview of how Ubuntu Core with full disk encryption and secure boot can be implemented to provide protection in such scenarios including a case study of this in practice.
Many enterprises still run Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, but this release will be moving from Basic Security Maintenance to Extended Security Maintenance in April as the release transitions from the five-year LTS maintenance window.
While updating to the latest version of Ubuntu LTS release is recommended, updating can be an operational concern for some, particularly those with larger deployments.
By joining this webinar you will learn:
- What the transition to Extended Security Maintenance for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS means
- Guidance on updating 14.04 LTS systems to 16.04 LTS or 18.04 LTS
- Security and compliance Q&A with Ubuntu Security Manager, Joe McManus
