Tackling Business Challenges with Master Data Management
Data is fast becoming the most valuable asset a business possesses. New technologies are making it easier to store, integrate and analyze ever-growing volumes of data. But technology alone can’t turn data into profit. You need a master strategy to ensure data is trusted, timely and accessible. You need MDM for the Product Domain.
Join Liaison Technologies for a discussion of MDM for the Product Domain (or PIM) from a strategic business perspective. We'll dispel the confusion surrounding this fledgling discipline and highlight some of the many pain points MDM can ease when done right. In the process, you'll discover:
• How MDM can impact your omni-channel marketing strategy
• The benefits of connecting data across an enterprise
• How to reduce time to market with clean, accessible data

In order to accelerate innovation and learning, the data science team at Uber is looking to optimize Driver, Rider, Eater, Restaurant and Courier experience through reinforcement learning methods.
The team has implemented bandits methods of optimization which learn iteratively and rapidly from a continuous evaluation of related metric performance. Recently, we completed an AI-powered experiment using bandits techniques for content optimization to improve the customer engagement. The technique helped improve customer experience compared to any classic hypothesis testing methods.
In this session, we will explain various use cases at Uber that this technique has proven its value and how bandits have helped optimize and improve customer experience and engagement at Uber.
Today’s ultra low-power sensors and wireless modules not only allow batteries to last longer but also make completely self-sustaining IoT devices possible.

Tariq Ali Asghar, CEO, Emerging Star investment Group
This webinar explains how Big Data in the context of IoT is going to impact Financial Services Organizations and what steps these incumbent organizations need to undertake for benefitting from this mega trend instead of getting drowned by it.
The key take-away from this webinar is that “As financial services companies embark on a journey to gain a better understanding of customers in order to provide effective and differentiated services, the amount of data is growing, IoT is multiplying this growth of data, and data structures are becoming more complex. Fintech Organizations need to develop technical capabilities to handle this Big Data and turn it to their advantage.”
About the speaker:
Tariq is a Fintech Expert, writer and thinker based in Toronto Canada and is currently working on an initiative to disrupt the conventional Insurance Industry with “Block chain and IOT applications to the insurance industry” for his startup.
Legacy development approaches and tools simply aren’t architected to handle the enormous flow of real-time, event-driven, data streams generated by IoT devices, existing systems, and people.
In this session, learn how the revolution in event-driven application platforms enable innovative companies to develop, deploy and run real-time enterprise applications with dramatically reduced time-to-market, significantly lowered development and maintenance costs, and maximized agility in the face of requirements for continuous innovation and digital transformation.

At most organizations, conference rooms are less than perfect--and that affects the productivity of any meeting. Inconsistency is the cornerstone of meeting room space, whether it's the power outlet locations, wired or wireless connectivity, brand of digital whiteboard, or video conferencing capabilities. That's why many companies are investing in "Conference Room of the Future" initiatives.
Nemertes recently conducted research among 600+ global organizations, and this webinar will focus on best practices.
It will address the following:
• What technologies are crucial to effective meetings?
• Who should run the meeting-room overhauls for the most success --IT or facilities?
• How do advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence and Internet of Things, play a role in meeting rooms?
• What should IT leaders look for in management and monitoring tools?
We look forward to sharing this information with you and answering your questions!
With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becoming enforceable in the EU on May 25, 2018, many data scientists are worried about the impact that this regulation and similar initiatives in other countries that give consumers a "right to explanation" of decisions made by algorithms will have on the field of predictive and prescriptive analytics.
In this session, Beau will discuss the role of interpretable algorithms in data science as well as explore tools and methods for explaining high-performing algorithms.
Beau Walker has a Juris Doctorate (law degree) and BS and MS Degrees in Biology and Ecology and Evolution. Beau has worked in many domains including academia, pharma, healthcare, life sciences, insurance, legal, financial services, marketing, and IoT.
Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Booz Allen Hamilton & Andreas Blumauer, CEO, Managing Partner Semantic Web Company
Implementing AI applications based on machine learning is a significant topic for organizations embracing digital transformation. By 2020, 30% of CIOs will include AI in their top five investment priorities according to Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2018: Intelligent Apps and Analytics. But to deliver on the AI promise, organizations need to generate good quality data to train the algorithms. Failure to do so will result in the following scenario: "When you automate a mess, you get an automated mess."
This webinar covers:
- An introduction to machine learning use cases and challenges provided by Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton and top data science and big data influencer.
- How to achieve good data quality based on harmonized semantic metadata presented by Andreas Blumauer, CEO and co-founder of Semantic Web Company and a pioneer in the application of semantic web standards for enterprise data integration.
- How to apply a combined approach when semantic knowledge models and machine learning build the basis of your cognitive computing. (See Attachment: The Knowledge Graph as the Default Data Model for Machine Learning)
- Why a combination of machine and human computation approaches is required, not only from an ethical but also from a technical perspective.
In this webinar, Metadata.io CEO Gil Allouche will talk about the different ways AI is being used by marketers.

AI is a powerful tool, but often companies get more excited about their technology than in the customer value they’re creating. Geordie Kaytes will share a framework for building customer-centered AI products. You’ll learn how to craft a far-reaching vision and strategy centered around customer needs and balance that vision with the day-to-day needs of your company.
Learn a framework for creating and communicating a vision that describes the overall direction of your AI product, a defined product strategy, a cross-functional roadmap aligned with the strategy, and a list of metrics that track progress towards the strategy
About the Speaker: Geordie Kaytes is the director of UX strategy for Boston-area UI/UX studio Fresh Tilled Soil and a partner at Heroic (https://www.heroicteam.com), a design leadership coaching firm that helps growing companies scale their digital product capabilities.

As we move to the conversational UI and take advantage of NLP and AI in general, we change the way we interact with technology dramatically. The standard GUI is many times fully eliminated, leading to novel challenges in UX. Tasks are removed from the user’s oversight with invisible or seamless software, and the output is not always as expected. But sometimes that output is correct within the parameters given and simply perceived as an error.
Dennis will talk through where x.ai has encountered error perception issues as we seek to develop frictionless software, how we thought about the problem and the communication strategies we’re exploring to resolve it.
