The Nature of Analytics & Stream Computing: Dances with Rhinos

Why is IBMer Rick Clements so well informed in regards to the white rhinoceros? Like researchers and environmentalists, he’s been given valuable insight through IBM InfoSphere Streams. And it’s more than just general knowledge about this endangered beast. It’s powerful information and insight that allows nature preservers to stop poachers before they ever strike. Through geospatial positioning, wildlife protection agencies use InfoSphere’s analytical capabilities to predict migration patterns and where those patterns cross with human activity. These agencies can then go on the offensive and stop the poachers from coming anywhere close to this 6,000-pound beast. It’s this exact same predictive capability of InfoSphere Streams that allows retailers to engage customers, monitor their preferences and prevent the competition from swooping in and stealing them away with offers on inferior services or products. So whether its understanding and protecting wildlife or better understanding and serving retail customers, IBM InfoSphere Streams is getting you in touch with the real nature of analytics.

  • Unsupervised learning to uncover advanced cyber attacks Aug 22 2017 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Rafael San Miguel Carrasco, Senior Specialist, British Telecom EMEA
    This case study is framed in a multinational company with 300k+ employees, present in 100+ countries, that is adding one extra layer of security based on big data analytics capabilities, in order to provide net-new value to their ongoing SOC-related investments.

    Having billions of events being generated on a weekly basis, real-time monitoring must be complemented with deep analysis to hunt targeted and advanced attacks.

    By leveraging a cloud-based Spark cluster, ElasticSearch, R, Scala and PowerBI, a security analytics platform based on anomaly detection is being progressively implemented.

    Anomalies are spotted by applying well-known analytics techniques, from data transformation and mining to clustering, graph analysis, topic modeling, classification and dimensionality reduction.

  • Machine Learning towards Precision Medicine Recorded: Feb 16 2017 47 mins
    Paul Hellwig Director, Research & Development, at Elsevier Health Analytics
    Medicine is complex. Correlations between diseases, medications, symptoms, lab data and genomics are of a complexity that cannot be fully comprehended by humans anymore. Machine learning methods are required that help mining these correlations. But a pure technological or algorithm-driven approach will not suffice. We need to get physicians and other domain experts on board, we need to gain their trust in the predictive models we develop.

    Elsevier Health Analytics has developed a first version of the Medical Knowledge Graph, which identifies correlations (ideally: causations) between diseases, and between diseases and treatments. On a dataset comprising 6 million patient lives we have calculated 2000+ models predicting the development of diseases. Every model adjusts for ~3000 covariates. Models are based on linear algorithms. This allows a graphical visualization of correlations that medical personnel can work with.
  • Bridging the Data Silos Recorded: Feb 15 2017 48 mins

You'll learn about data sources available to you, how you can start automating this data collection, and the many insights that are at your fingertips.
  • Data Visualization IS NOT Self Service BI - The Case for IoT in BI Recorded: Feb 15 2017 27 mins
    Lee Hermon, Sisense Engagement Manager and Adi Azaria, Sisense Chief Evangelist
    Businesses today already know that visualization in business intelligence is an essential part of competitive success. Yet, too many organizations are falling behind because of the inability to keep up with demand for information. One mistake is thinking that self-serve data visualization is all they need when setting up a self-service BI environment.

    Debunking the common myth, we will explore why data visualization IS NOT self-service BI. The only way for Information workers to become more self-sufficient is by having a BI environment that is more usable but also more consumable. It is these two themes—usability and consumability - that play crucial roles in a fully functioning self-service BI environment. Using modern IoT technologies, the modern business can expand access and consumability of data by engaging the human senses of sight, sound, and touch.

    Join Lee Hermon, Sisense Engagement Manager, as he explores the limitations of current Self Service Visualization models and Adi Azaria, Sisense co-founder & Chief Evangelist as he introduces how IoT in Business Intelligence is changing the game.
  • Comparison of ETL v Streaming Ingestion,Data Wrangling in Machine/Deep Learning Recorded: Feb 15 2017 45 mins
    Kai Waehner, Technology Evangelist, TIBCO
    A key task to create appropriate analytic models in machine learning or deep learning is the integration and preparation of data sets from various sources like files, databases, big data storages, sensors or social networks. This step can take up to 50% of the whole project.

    This session compares different alternative techniques to prepare data, including extract-transform-load (ETL) batch processing, streaming analytics ingestion, and data wrangling within visual analytics. Various options and their trade-offs are shown in live demos using different advanced analytics technologies and open source frameworks such as R, Python, Apache Spark, Talend or KNIME. The session also discusses how this is related to visual analytics, and best practices for how the data scientist and business user should work together to build good analytic models.

    Key takeaways for the audience:
    - Learn various option for preparing data sets to build analytic models
    - Understand the pros and cons and the targeted persona for each option
    - See different technologies and open source frameworks for data preparation
    - Understand the relation to visual analytics and streaming analytics, and how these concepts are actually leveraged to build the analytic model after data preparation

    They will present an architecture which is composed of four parts: a jupyter server-only gateway, a Scala/Spark Jupyter kernel, a Spark cluster and a angular/bootstrap web application.
  • Visualization: A tool for knowledge Recorded: Feb 14 2017 49 mins
    Luis Melgar, Visual Reporter at Univision News
    During the last decades, concepts such as Big Data and Data Visualization have become more popular and present in our daily lives. But what is visualization?

    Visualization is an intellectual discipline that allows to generate knowledge through visual forms. And as in every other field, there are good and bad practices that can help consumers or mislead them.

    In this webinar, we will address:

    -What it’s Data Visualization and why it’s important
    -How to choose the right graphic forms in order to represent complex information
    -Interactivity and new narratives
