  • Data is the New Oil and Martech is the Oil Refinery Recorded: Aug 30 2018 45 mins
    Adnyesh Dalpati, Solutions Architect, Iotians Group
    Marketers have inevitably grown more and more reliance on data, with the general view being held that collecting more data means knowing more about your audience. But having more data is not the only prerogative but monetizing it by using right set of tools and technology is the way forward.

    This webinar will focus in interesting ways marketing technology can enable businesses to monetize their data.
  • Machine Learning Challenges - Data Integration and Transformation Recorded: Aug 29 2018 51 mins
    Umesh Hodeghatta Rao, CTO, Nu-Sigma Analytics Labs Webcast: Data Integrity & Normalization
    AI Machine Learning model accuracy depends on the quality of data. In data science, when we say quality of data, it means data consistency, data completeness and data correctness which are all part of data integrity. In this session we will talk about how machine learning models can be adopted for data integration. Also, in case of some of the machine learning models, we assume data is normally distributed or data elements are appropriately scaled. However, it is not always true. Hence, data has to be transformed by normalizing data without losing its integrity. This is a big challenge in data science. Data integrity is maintained with the help of integrity constraints or the rules that are designed to keep data consistent and correct. In this session we will discuss some of the techniques and methods used for data integration, data transformation and normalization while ensuring data integrity. We will walk you through the steps involved with the help of examples.
  • How to Share State Across Multiple Apache Spark Jobs using Apache Ignite Recorded: Aug 28 2018 42 mins
    Akmal Chaudhri, Technology Evangelist, GridGain Systems
    Attend this session to learn how to easily share state in-memory across multiple Spark jobs, either within the same application or between different Spark applications using an implementation of the Spark RDD abstraction provided in Apache Ignite. During the talk, attendees will learn in detail how IgniteRDD – an implementation of native Spark RDD and DataFrame APIs – shares the state of the RDD across other Spark jobs, applications and workers. Examples will show how IgniteRDD, with its advanced in-memory indexing capabilities, allows execution of SQL queries many times faster than native Spark RDDs or Data Frames.

    Akmal Chaudhri has over 25 years experience in IT and has previously held roles as a developer, consultant, product strategist and technical trainer. He has worked for several blue-chip companies such as Reuters and IBM, and also the Big Data startups Hortonworks (Hadoop) and DataStax (Cassandra NoSQL Database). He holds a BSc (1st Class Hons.) in Computing and Information Systems, MSc in Business Systems Analysis and Design and a PhD in Computer Science. He is a Member of the British Computer Society (MBCS) and a Chartered IT Professional (CITP).

  • Data Governance: Achieving Sustainability Among Whiners Recorded: Aug 28 2018 61 mins
    Seth Maislin, Principal Consultant, Earley Information Science & Seth Earley, CEO, Earley Information Science
    Let’s face it - no one likes the ‘G’ word. It’s too often a sour antidote to excitement and nimbleness: Triple checks, security barriers, privacy forms, council reviews. It’s as awful as pulling teeth and paying taxes, right?

    Thankfully it doesn’t have to be, and many organizations have found an effective rhythm for long-term, sustainable data stewardship.

    Join us on Tuesday, August 28th, at 11:00 AM ET as we discuss ‘Data Governance: Achieving Sustainability Among Whiners,’ where we’ll explore how you can implement this necessary rhythm, even if you’re surrounded by governance resistors.

    You will learn:

    1.Good governance is empowering, not (only) a “necessarily evil”
    2.The Effective As: Automation, Assignment, Attitude
    3.Analytics for achieving fast failure (and recovery)

  • Get Your Data In Line! Journey From Data Chaos to Regulatory & Compliance Zen Recorded: Aug 28 2018 49 mins
    Janine Darling, Founder & CEO of STASH
    This presentation will walk you down the path
    of ‘where did we come from, how did we get here, and what the devil do
    we do now’, regarding data regulatory and compliance issues.

    Practical regulation and compliance considerations
    involve more than hearsay, smoke and mirrors, promotional and
    marketing jargon, and a myriad of other informational and technical
    proliferation swirling around the world today. Visualization or applying
    the latest technology and techniques are little if any value without real
    data supporting the value of the outcomes of their use. Intuition, domain
    knowledge, and reasonable approximations can mean the difference
    between a successful model and a catastrophic failure.

    This presentation will dive into creating a clear picture of the matters at hand, without any unnecessary acronyms, technical mud puddles, or narrative that threatens to put attendees to sleep. The outcome? Knowing how to more confidently prepare for and make the correct decisions on what to protect, why, and how in your organization.
  • Implementing a Sparse Logistic Regression Algorithm in Apache Spark Recorded: Aug 21 2018 39 mins
    Lorand Dali, Data Scientist, Zalando
    This talk tells the story of implementation and optimization of a sparse logistic regression algorithm in spark. I would like to share the lessons I learned and the steps I had to take to improve the speed of execution and convergence of my initial naive implementation. The message isn’t to convince the audience that logistic regression is great and my implementation is awesome, rather it will give details about how it works under the hood, and general tips for implementing an iterative parallel machine learning algorithm in spark.

    The talk is structured as a sequence of “lessons learned” that are shown in form of code examples building on the initial naive implementation. The performance impact of each “lesson” on execution time and speed of convergence is measured on benchmark datasets.

    You will see how to formulate logistic regression in a parallel setting, how to avoid data shuffles, when to use a custom partitioner, how to use the ‘aggregate’ and ‘treeAggregate’ functions, how momentum can accelerate the convergence of gradient descent, and much more. I will assume basic understanding of machine learning and some prior knowledge of spark. The code examples are written in scala, and the code will be made available for each step in the walkthrough.

    Lorand is a data scientist working on risk management and fraud prevention for the payment processing system of Zalando, the leading fashion platform in Europe. Previously, Lorand has developed highly scalable low-latency machine learning algorithms for real-time bidding in online advertising.

  • Improve Customer Experience through Multi-Arm Bandit Recorded: Jun 21 2018 59 mins
    Jeremy Gu, Sr. Data Scientist, Uber
    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.
