Vision and Visualization: Practical Wisdom from Research in Human Vision

In data visualization, we map data values and relationships onto visual dimensions to create a graphical representation for exploration and analysis. How can we best use the power of the human visual system to make these values and relationships clear? Using examples from information design, cartography and data graphics, we will demonstrate how insights from research in color perception, perceptual organization and visual attention have helped define best practices for visual analysis.

You will learn how to utilize a few perceptual and cognitive building blocks that can inform a wide variety of visualization choices, and to demonstrate how these influenced the design of the Tableau product.

  • Data Fabric: A New Paradigm For Self-Service Data & Data Scientists Recorded: Dec 12 2017 45 mins
    Kelly Stirman, VP Strategy, Dremio
    Data Scientists are rare and highly valued individuals, and for good reason: making sense of data, and using the machine learning libraries requires an unusual blend of advanced skills. Why is it then that Data Scientists spend the majority of their time getting data ready for models, and a fraction actually doing the high value work?

    In this talk we introduce the concept of Data Fabric, a new way to provide a self-service model for data, where data scientists can easily discover, curate, share, and accelerate data analysis using Python, R, and visualization tools, no matter where the data is managed, no matter the structure, and no matter the size.

    We will talk through the role of Apache Arrow, the in-memory columnar data standard that is accelerating analytics for GPU-based processing, as well as the role of Pandas and Arrow in providing unprecedented speed in accessing datasets from Python.

    We will discuss:

    How StormRunner Functional is the latest functional test offering from Micro Focus. In this session, Chris Trimper, an early adopter and beta tester, will share his experiences with this new product

    How Virtual Table Server (VTS), in days of Mercury Interactive, was the often-overlooked repository for dynamically updated real-time test data. Even after a revamp and relaunch in 2014, many people still don't use it, but they should. Richard's VTS demo will help you to get value from this great add-on for LoadRunner and Performance Center

    How Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning are rapidly impacting businesses and customers, enabling another massive shift through technology enablement. In this session, Todd DeCapua will share how these capabilities are being leveraged in Performance Engineering now, and into the future.
  • The Human Role in AI Recorded: Dec 12 2017 36 mins
    Peter Bruce, President and Founder, The Institute for Statistics Education at Statistics.com
    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a hot topic, and there is widespread alarm that AI will replace humans in the analytical process. Adam Selipsky, the CEO of Tableau, terms this a myth, and said recently that AI's role will remain that of an assistant to the analytics professional.

    In this talk we go beyond that, and look at some interesting aspects of the human role as an integral component of machine learning and statistical modeling.

    We discuss how human expertise "supervises" machine learning, how reliance on multiple sources can deliver surprising expertise, and when that system can go wrong.

  • Effective High-Speed Multi-Tenant Data Lakes Recorded: Oct 25 2017 45 mins
    Sean Suchter, CTO and founder, Pepperdata
    Big Data has increased the demand for big data management solutions that operate at scale and meet business requirements. Big Data organizations realize quickly that scaling from small, pilot projects to large-scale production clusters involves a steep learning curve. Despite tremendous progress, critically important areas including multi-tenancy, performance optimization, and workflow monitoring remain areas where the operations team still needs management help.

    Intended for enterprises who already have a data lake or are setting up their first data lake, this presentation will discuss how to implement data lakes with operations tools that automatically optimize clusters with solutions for monitoring, performance tuning, and troubleshooting in production environments.

    Sean is the co-founder and CTO of Pepperdata. Previously, Sean was the founding GM of Microsoft’s Silicon Valley Search Technology Center, where he led the integration of Facebook and Twitter content into Bing search. Prior to Microsoft, Sean managed the Yahoo Search Technology team, the first production user of Hadoop. Sean joined Yahoo through the acquisition of Inktomi, and holds a B.S. in Engineering and Applied Science from Caltech.
  • Three Ways To Accelerate Your Data Lake Migration To Cloud Recorded: Oct 25 2017 45 mins
    Kelly Stirman, VP Strategy, Dremio
    Public cloud deployments have become irresistible in terms of flexibility, low barriers to entry, security, and developer friendliness. But the sheer inertia of traditional data lakes make them difficult to transition to cloud. In this talk we'll look at examples of how leading companies have made the transition using open source technologies and hybrid strategies.

    Instead of following a "lift and shift" strategy for moving data lake workloads to the cloud, there are new considerations unique to cloud that should be considered alongside traditional approaches related to compute (eg, GPU, FPGA), storage (object store vs. file store), integrations, and security.

    Viewers will take away techniques they can immediately apply to their own projects.
