Current deep learning approaches require large amounts of labeled data. The creation of labeled data is expensive, error-prone, and time-consuming. Despite these challenges, in the last decades, tremendous successes in machine learning have been achieved in the area of supervised learning that requires the compilation of large datasets with labels (for example, grouping pictures based on the person in the image). In contrast, unsupervised learning algorithms do not require labels and require minimal human participation. However, due to significant technical difficulties, they haven’t been as successful as supervised learning algorithms.
Self-supervision overcomes these technical difficulties to extract value from very large unlabeled datasets using machine learning with minimal human intervention in cybersecurity, precision medicine, and predictive maintenance applications. The new method circumvents these difficulties and clears the way to scaling unsupervised learning algorithms to large and complex datasets. We will show applications of these methods in cybersecurity and drug discovery problems.

While there are many predictions about how the future of analytics will unfold, we don’t have to always wait for them to come true for analytics to be a value producing component of the business. It is desirable to proactively shape the future of analytics in a way that produces value while mitigating the undesirable effects such as bias, lack of privacy, etc. A holistic approach is required for the benefits to materialize, just focusing on acquiring data or AI algorithms is not enough. In this webinar I will share key challenges to achieving these goals and what actions businesses can take to shape a future that is more likely to produce the outcomes we want.
Our actions today have a large impact on the future of analytics.
What are the critical issues we should focus on?
What steps we can take to ensure that analytics evolves in a form that is desirable?
What are the potential pitfalls to avoid?
Marius Moscovici, CEO of Metric Insights | Mike Smitheman, VP of Sales and Analytics of Metric Insights
The ability to drive consistent use and widespread adoption of Business Intelligence is an ongoing challenge for many companies, and the inability to achieve this consistency and uniform adoption can significantly impede their progress in becoming information and data-driven organizations.
Departmental siloes, tool proliferation, end-user data literacy, and other challenges too often produce an environment in which a shared, common understanding of the organization’s key performance indicators fail to materialize. In addition, metrics and measurements – the much-discussed “single-source-of-truth” – often fail to take shape, which in turn leads to competing versions of the truth; a lack of trust in available decision-making data; and, degradation in decision-making speed and effectiveness.
In this webinar, we will:
• Explore the underlying conditions that lead to the challenges of driving consistent and company-wide adoption of Business Intelligence
• Examine case studies of companies that have successfully solved these challenges
• Suggest solutions to the issues preventing organizations from building the necessary but elusive "Single Source of Truth"
Peter Kacandes, Sr. Technical Product Marketing Lead, Imply.io
Enterprise Analytics are currently often the purview of a narrow group of data scientists and trained analysts, with business users bottlenecked by those experts, or left to rely on static BI dashboards that are too slow for data exploration, but the economy increasingly demands that front-line business decision makers need real-time self-service analytics to make decisions faster and improve the customer experience.
In this talk, Peter Kacandes, a Sr. Technical Product Marketing Lead at Imply.io, will discuss:
The origins of this problem in the architecture of the current analytics tech stack, and the emerging hot analytics technology stack, which opens up self-service analytics on real-time big data to hundreds or thousands of business people at a company.
How a real-time data store that is 10-100X faster than data warehouses or data lake query engines, combined with an intuitive and high-speed UI, can empower untrained “citizen analysts” such as marketing, product, and operations managers, to make myriad daily decisions faster and data-driven.
The learnings of well-known companies who have implemented hot analytics for use cases such as user behavior, network, application and service performance monitoring, and real-time fraud detection.

Dr. Umesh Rao. Hodeghatta, Chief Data Scientist, N-U Sigma U2 Analytics Lab
AI systems and algorithms are trained and modeled and validated by humans on the data generated by humans or sensors or other automated systems. This poses challenge and risk of introducing human bias into the models, though many of us assume the AI systems are unbiased. As we are marching towards 2021 and making significant progress towards more sophisticated algorithms and models, we should also consider reducing bias in AI. Without managing bias, any AI initiative may fall apart due to the lack of trust and confidence by CEOs and leadership. In this session, we will be discussing some of the ethical and trust issues of AI systems due to AI Bias, and how organizations can model and validate AI systems and algorithms to reduce AI Bias.
Far too many companies struggle with data-related issues such as integrating online and offline data, a lack of collaboration between teams, low data accuracy, and poor data accessibility. You already know that creating a single source of truth for your customer data is the first step to good customer data management. Having your data all in one place provides a single data set that everyone in the company can use. This is the key to making your tools and teams work better together. A Customer Data Platform (CDP) can do all this and more. CDPs are designed to normalize large amounts of data across a wide variety of systems gathering data on the same individual in very different ways.
Have you heard of a CDP before and the value it brings?
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
-What is a CDP?
-What are the advantages of a CDP over a data lake?
-How can a CDP enable better business intelligence reporting?
-How CDPs can be leveraged with use cases designed for marketing, product and operations teams?
-And so much more!

Giovanni Lorenzoni, CEO and Co-founder, BitBang, Data Management and Data Insights Consulting service
Companies are developing at speed and adopting innovative solutions for competitive differentiation and sustainable growth.
Efficient data management and analytics solutions are at essence for leaders to adopt a data-driven culture. Insights must be reliable to make more accurate decisions, optimize go-to-marketing strategies and achieve operational excellence. However, disparate systems and data silos hinder an organization’s ability to do this, instead leading to a growing amount of inaccurate data and overhead expenses.
It is a Mosaic approach of platforms and capabilities that will provide a truly valuable analysis where tools and analytics services are vital ‘participants’ in a data ecosystem. Integrating tools and combining data into a data environment so that it can be seamlessly accessed by data management services and used by end-users is key to monetize data and automate data-driven processes. Companies will need a continuous procedure for identifying, engaging with, and evaluating new data platforms and partners and, when appropriate, integrating these elements into analytics processes.
Rather than simply investing in data warehousing and advanced analytics tools, it is important that organizations take a step back and look at the systems of insights to build every project up from a mosaic of platforms and services to build an interconnected set of elements and organize them in a way that achieves data-driven insights. Understanding the interconnection between the systems of insights, people, processes, and microbiome of the entire organization will take you to 2021 and beyond.
