Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

UCC Series [Ep. 5]: Conference Room of the Future

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?
• What are the differences between smaller, huddle rooms and large conference rooms, in terms of user expectations?
• 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!

  • Data Integrity and Normalization Aug 29 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 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. For example, 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 transformation and normalization while ensuring data integrity. We will walk you through the steps involved with the help of examples.

  • Get Your Data In Line! Journey From Data Chaos to Regulatory & Compliance Zen Aug 28 2018 12:00 pm UTC 45 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.
