    Brian Gross, VP Digital Innovation, Aeromexico
    AI isn’t a nice-to-have any more, it’s a must-have. There’s a reason why corporate giants like Google, IBM, Yahoo, Intel, Apple, and Salesforce are competing to snatch up private AI companies. In the first quarter of 2017 alone, 37 AI companies were swallowed whole.

    Companies aren’t just using these AI tools to enable existing marketing strategies; they’re taking those strategies to the next level, going beyond simple retention and delivering active engagement. AI technology offers companies unprecedented insight into customer behaviors, patterns, and beliefs, allowing you to seamlessly anticipate customer needs and serve up hyper-personalized, emotionally resonant campaigns where and when they’re most welcome.

    2018 is the year to seize the AI advantage. To learn more about the technology you need, the opportunities it unlocks, and what it takes to get your ball in the game, don’t miss this VB Live event!

  • Customer Support through Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning Recorded: Feb 22 2018 60 mins
    Robin Marcenac, Sr. Managing Consultant, IBM, Ross Ackerman, Dir. Digital Support Strategy, NetApp, Alex McDonald, SNIA CSI
    Watson is a computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language. Watson was named after IBM's first CEO, Thomas J. Watson. The computer system was specifically developed to answer questions on the quiz show Jeopardy! (where it beat its human competitors) and was then used in commercial applications, the first of which was helping with lung cancer treatment.

    NetApp is now using IBM Watson in Elio, a virtual support assistant that responds to queries in natural language. Elio is built using Watson’s cognitive computing capabilities. These enable Elio to analyze unstructured data by using natural language processing to understand grammar and context, understand complex questions, and evaluate all possible meanings to determine what is being asked. Elio then reasons and identifies the best answers to questions with help from experts who monitor the quality of answers and continue to train Elio on more subjects.

    Elio and Watson represent an innovative and novel use of large quantities of unstructured data to help solve problems, on average, four times faster than traditional methods. Join us at this webcast, where we’ll discuss:

    •The challenges of utilizing large quantities of valuable yet unstructured data
    •How Watson and Elio continuously learn as more data arrives, and navigates an ever growing volume of technical information
    •How Watson understands customer language and provides understandable responses

    Learn how these new and exciting technologies are changing the way we look at and interact with large volumes of traditionally hard-to-analyze data.
  • Neural Networks/Deep Learning to Transform Modern AI Platform Recorded: Feb 22 2018 64 mins
    Dr. Umesh Hodeghatta Rao, CTO, Nu-Sigma Analytics Labs
    AI is changing the way organizations do businesses and how they interact with customers. AI continues to drive the change. Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing will become standards in AI solutions. Deep Learning is based on brain simulations and uses deep neural networks. AlphaGo is the first AI system to defeat a professional human Go player, the first program to defeat a Go world champion, and arguably the strongest Go player in history. Baidu improved speech recognition from 89% to 99% using Deep Learning. Every AI and Machine learning scientist is required to know Deep Learning tools in his / her current job scenario.

    In this session, we will be discussing what is Deep Learning and why it is gaining popularity. We will explain AI solutions using Deep Learning with a practical example. Deep Learning has an edge over other machine learning techniques as with the increased volume of data, performance increases with Deep Learning. Further, Deep Learning enables Hierarchical Feature Learning i.e. learning feature hierarchies.

  • What is your Land Value, Thessaloniki? A Real (estate) Data Visualization Story Recorded: Feb 20 2018 46 mins
    Charalampos Xanthopoulakis, Data Visualizations Architect
    Selling your house in the financial crisis-stricken Greece is up to this day a great ordeal. When faced with such a challenge, I was baffled by the sparsity of conclusive data on land value at my birthplace city, Thessaloniki. Embarking on a personal mission and collecting and processing more than 10K online housing ads together with open data, I managed to render an insightful interactive visualization of the actual real estate values on borough and city block level that was published through the Greek media. Join me on this thought process journey to find out how to

    o Gather vast online data with simple scripting

    o Combine your data with open data into meaningful structures

    o Create interactive data visualizations that have an actual impact @ infographeo.com

    This will be an interactive session, so please feel free to bring your thoughts and questions to share during the session.

  • The Role of Data in XR Recorded: Dec 13 2017 31 mins
    Amy Peck, Founder/CEO, EndeavorVR
    Knowledge is power, but how do we use data for better insights and understanding? What are the benefits and perhaps more importantly, what are the risks?

    In this webinar, we will look at both sides of Data in XR:

    • Data Visualization within a virtual environment
    ⁃ Examining large data sets in 3D
    ⁃ Translating 2D into 3D
    ⁃ Interacting with data
    ⁃ Rethinking how we analyze data

    • Capturing data from virtual environments
    ⁃ Data points from within the environments
    ⁃ How companies are using captured XR Data
    ⁃ Connecting 2D & 3D data sets
    ⁃ Privacy and personal data
  • Data Fabric: A New Paradigm For Self-Service Data & Data Scientists Recorded: Dec 12 2017 45 mins
    Kelly Stirman, VP Strategy, Dremio
    Data Scientists are rare and highly valued individuals, and for good reason: making sense of data, and using the machine learning libraries requires an unusual blend of advanced skills. Why is it then that Data Scientists spend the majority of their time getting data ready for models, and a fraction actually doing the high value work?

    In this talk we introduce the concept of Data Fabric, a new way to provide a self-service model for data, where data scientists can easily discover, curate, share, and accelerate data analysis using Python, R, and visualization tools, no matter where the data is managed, no matter the structure, and no matter the size.

    We will talk through the role of Apache Arrow, the in-memory columnar data standard that is accelerating analytics for GPU-based processing, as well as the role of Pandas and Arrow in providing unprecedented speed in accessing datasets from Python.

  • Three Ways To Accelerate Your Data Lake Migration To Cloud Recorded: Oct 25 2017 45 mins
    Kelly Stirman, VP Strategy, Dremio
    Public cloud deployments have become irresistible in terms of flexibility, low barriers to entry, security, and developer friendliness. But the sheer inertia of traditional data lakes make them difficult to transition to cloud. In this talk we'll look at examples of how leading companies have made the transition using open source technologies and hybrid strategies.

    Instead of following a "lift and shift" strategy for moving data lake workloads to the cloud, there are new considerations unique to cloud that should be considered alongside traditional approaches related to compute (eg, GPU, FPGA), storage (object store vs. file store), integrations, and security.

    Viewers will take away techniques they can immediately apply to their own projects.
  • Designing Data Lakes: Architecture options with open source tools Recorded: Oct 25 2017 63 mins
    Maloy Manna, PM Engineering, AXA Data Innovation Lab, Paris
    The concept of Data lakes evolved to address challenges and opportunities in managing big data.

    Organizations are investing massive amounts of time and money to upgrade existing data infrastructures and build data lakes whether on-premises or in the cloud.

    This talk will discuss architectures and design options to implement data lakes with open source tools. Also covered are challenges of upgrade & migration from existing data warehouses, metadata management, supporting self-service and managing production deployments.
  • Virtual Data Lake: A Reality Recorded: Oct 25 2017 42 mins
    Hélène Lyon, IBM, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Z Solutions Architect
