Session Abstracts

Talk - Operationalizing AI

The value of data is in the actionable insights that can be derived from it. Traditionally, Business Intelligence relied on mining structured data to describe and diagnose business events and outcomes to help towards making business decisions. This process of creating reports to understand "what has happened?" has limitations. It does not allow you to identify all the hidden relationships between data. If the report did not capture an insight, it will remain unknown.

When people interact with data, the insights are dependent on the human ability to understand data. Human bias also creeps into the analysis. As the complexity and variety of data increase, it becomes humanly impossible to keep track of it. This is where Machine learning and or AI is widely used.

Data is everywhere and to analyse data using traditional methods can no longer guarantee quality actionable insights. What has changed? The talk will cover this topic with real-world examples. Riaz will walk you through how to set up an end to end enterprise-grade platform to operationalize AI using the open-source Hazelcast technology and will provide a short demo of the sample project.

. In the middle of the talk, we will serve BEERS & PIZZA COURTESY OF OUR FABULOUS DUBJUG PARTNERS
