  • Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues Recorded: Jul 20 2017 61 mins
    Alex Kwiatkowski (Finastra), Peter Jackson (Southern Water), Jessica Holzbach (Penta)
    In an increasingly digitalised world, the value of information grows ever higher. Winning organisations – whether in financial services or any other vertical sector – will be those who can harness the power of data analytics to develop microscopic levels of insight and foresight into customer behaviours and operational activities in order to make progressive improvements on a continuous basis. Product development informed by factual evidence rather than educated guesswork, or real-time risk management based on a hyper-accurate picture of exposures, bring significant internal and external benefits.

    However, while banks want to get closer to their customers, is the feeling mutual? Data privacy is a very sensitive issue, and the perception of what constitutes intrusion will likely vary between individuals. Institutions, therefore, need to walk a fine line between what’s genuinely useful and what’s genuinely creepy.

    During this webinar, a panel of respected subject matter experts will discuss and dissect the key issues related to the widespread use of data analytics in financial services, identifying the obstacles which need to be overcome and the enablers that will drive FS forward successfully.

    Laura Schewel, CEO, StreetLight Data
    From automated vehicles to ride hailing apps, transportation as we know it is changing - and fast. But new technologies alone won't help communities build the efficient, equitable, and sustainable transportation networks communities want. In fact, these innovative technologies could do just the opposite, especially if they are not deployed wisely. Cities must collect the right data and enact the right policies to ensure they do not exacerbate problems like inequity and traffic, and to hold themselves accountable to the promise of new mobility technologies.

    In this webinar, you will find out why - and how - the smartest cities of tomorrow will be those that adopt data-driven transportation strategies today. Join for Laura Schewel's presentation to gain insights into:

    • Why the status quo for transportation data collection is no longer good enough
    • The types of Massive Mobile Data that are useful for transportation and urban planning
    • Algorithmic processing techniques that are critical for making this data useful
    • Case studies from California and Virginia that demonstrate why Massive Mobile Data drives more effective transportation planning
    • A forward-looking blueprint for using Massive Mobile Data to maximize the potential benefits of new transportation technologies - and minimize negative impacts

    Laura Schewel founded StreetLight Data, a mobility analytics provider, after spending more than a decade as an advanced transportation researcher and statistician at the Rocky Mountain Institute and FERC. She has particular expertise in transportation systems, sustainability and safety, and vehicle/system modeling and analysis.

  • Visualizing Smart Cities: How Data Visualization can help shape our communities Recorded: Jun 23 2017 46 mins
    Andy Kriebel, Head Coach at The Data School, Tableau Zen Master & Eva Murray, Tableau Evangelist at EXASOL, Tableau Trainer
    Whenever there is data, there is the chance to visualize it and gain valuable insights that can drive change and improvements. Governments have realized the potential that data holds for transforming our towns, cities, living spaces and communities to better address the needs of our modern society.

    Governments may want to change public transport services to suit commuters who move away from city centers due to increasing living costs, or develop programs that deliver more support services to areas showing high incidences of mental illnesses, or simply monitor bike traffic to assess the necessity of additional cycle lanes and bike share programs in our capitals. Data and data visualization can help us identify the needs of our communities and can support us in addressing them effectively.

    In this webinar Andy and Eva will present examples of Government using data to improve services for communities and will share how you can get involved through analyzing open data and becoming part of the wider 'dataviz' community.

  • How to get data moving: Impact of big data on transportation Recorded: Jun 23 2017 23 mins
    Arwen Smit, Head of Marketing, dovu
    Moving from A-B is slowly being revolutionised through data. Car-sharing and ride-hailing are just the beginning. Thousands of connected devices are currently monitoring data points, and although stand-alone analysis can be useful, true innovation occurs when these data sets are combined to transform into something new.

    In the near future, IoT data explosion and the API revolution will collide to change city planning, urban movement and the role of the car in the 21st century.

    First off, we set out to understand what big data means in the context of transportation, answering questions such as what is it, where is it coming from, and what can you do with it.
    - Next, we'll zoom out and apply these learning to transport innovation in a wider context, considering how it will influence concepts such as urban movement, social mobility, and quality of life.
    - Finally, we'll discuss the relationship between open data and innovation.
  • Interpreting IoT Data: Context is Everything Recorded: Jun 23 2017 46 mins
    Dr. Boris Adryan, Head of IoT & Data Analytics, Zühlke Engineering GmbH
    For decades “things” have been connected to the Internet. Embedded in carefully planned end-to-end solutions, the what and why of the data arising from these devices has often been hard-coded. In other words, in the M2M world, it is usually clear from the outset what is going to happen with the data. In a future IoT, this won’t necessarily be the case. In a world full of connected devices, the meaning and the potential of the device data is only going to become clear in the context where it is needed in.

    But how can software tell that your connected thermometer is useful for a medical application, or that a car in the drive way is likely an indicator of your partner’s presence? This is where device catalogues, information models and ontologies come in handy.

    While the talk is not specifically tailored towards a smart city focus, it should become clear how these technologies can be useful in such environment.

  • 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.
