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

Scalable Cross-Platform R-Based Predictive Analytics

In this webinar we will take a quick tour through an end-to-end predictive analytics session. We will start by exploring our data with summaries and histograms.

Using the knowledge gleaned from data exploration, we will create transformations to clean our data and prepare it for model building. Next, we will establish a prediction baseline by performing linear regression.

Then we will apply a state-of-the-art black box algorithm, Ensembles of Decision Trees, to push prediction to the limit. Finally, we will use this high quality ensemble model to score new data, completing the prediction workflow.

We will discover how to perform these steps scalably using an R-based tool across a wide range of platforms: Windows and Linux laptops and workstations, multicore servers, Hadoop and MPI clusters, and massively parallel databases.

    Financial data is both the most intimate and most powerful data we have about ourselves. Financial data should not kept in a silo but openly available to third parties, -- this is required for true innovation. However, security and data protection are crucial. Banks and third party providers have to work together to provide the infrastructure required to innovate.

    Join this webinar where we will discuss:
    -The power of APIs -- how to integrate banking data and financial sources quickly and easily
    -What developers need to know about banking APIs and how to foster new services in the FinTech space
    -PSD2 Post-Brexit -- what now?
    -Will traditional banks be replaced by FinTech banks one day?
    -Which is the biggest challenge: market education, technical issues, or regulation?

  • The Role of FPGAs in SparK Accelerators Aug 29 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Shreyas Shah, Principal Data center Architect, Xilinx
    In the cloud computing era, data growth is exponential. Every day billions of photos are shared and large amount of new data created in multiple formats. Within this cloud of data, the relevant data with real monetary value is small. To extract the valuable data, big data analytics frame works like SparK is used. This can run on top of a variety of file systems and data bases. To accelerate the SparK by 10-1000x, customers are creating solutions like log file accelerators, storage layer accelerators, MLLIB (One of the SparK library) accelerators, and SQL accelerators etc.

    FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) are the ideal fit for these type of accelerators where the workloads are constantly changing. For example, they can accelerate different algorithms on different data based on end users and the time of the day, but keep the same hardware.

    This webinar will describe the role of FPGAs in SparK accelerators and give SparK accelerator use cases.

  • How to build a geolocated recommender using Spark ML, Cassandra and Akka Recorded: Jul 14 2016 46 mins
    Natalino Busa, Head of Applied Data Science at Teradata
    Natalino introduces a collection of machine learning techniques to extract insights from location-based social networks such as Facebook, demonstrating how to combine a dataset of venues’ check-ins with the user social graph using Spark and how to use Cassandra as a storage layer for both events and models before sketching how to operationalize such predictive models and embed them as microservices. In terms of data architecture this processing follows closely the SMACK stack.

    The proposed data-pipeline is effective at detecting patterns in the sequences of visited venues and recommend relevant venues to visit next, based on the user, and friends location's history as well as the venue popularity graph. Natalino Busa explains how these predictive analytics tasks can be accomplished by using Spark SQL, Spark ML, and just a few lines of Scala and Python code.
