[session] #IoT's “Smart” Sea Change | @ThingsExpo @JohnCrupi #AI #M2M

The "Smart" Sea Change in IoT Now that the world has connected "things," we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Engineering System Architect at Greenwave Systems, will discuss how as more smart, AI-enabled "things" operate at the edges of our networks, we'll see things moving beyond being connected and into actively embodying intelligence. Speaker Bio John Crupi is Vice President and Engineering System Architect at Greenwave Systems, where he guides development... (more)

[session] #DeepLearning, Trading & #FinTech | @CloudExpo #BigData #AI #ML

How Is Deep Learning Used in Trading Deep learning has been very successful in social sciences and specially areas where there is a lot of data. Trading is another field that can be viewed as social science with a lot of data. With the advent of Deep Learning and Big Data technologies for efficient computation, we are finally able to use the same methods in investment management as we would in face recognition or in making chat-bots. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Gaurav Chakravorty, co-founder and Head of Strategy Development at qplum, will discuss the transformational impact of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning in making trading a scientific process. This focus on learning a hierarchical set of concepts is truly making investing a scientific process, a utility. Speaker Bio Gaurav Chakravorty is a co-founder and Head of Strategy Development at qplum, ... (more)

[session] #FinTech Analytics | @CloudExpo @KineticaDB #Bitcoin #Blockchain

Bringing Real-Time, Interactive Analytics to the Financial Industry The financial services market is one of the most data-driven industries in the world, yet it's bogged down by legacy CPU technologies that simply can't keep up with the task of querying and visualizing billions of records. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Jared Parker, Director of Financial Services at Kinetica, will discuss how the advent of advanced in-database analytics on the GPU makes it possible to run sophisticated data science workloads on the same database that is housing the rich information needed to drive trading decisions. With the unique multi-core architecture of the GPU, financial computations can be processed efficiently and quickly, making it ideal for financial services streaming datasets. He will share how several financial institutions' quantitative science groups are specifical... (more)

Are You Thinking About Big Data When Doing IoT? – You Should Be | @ThingsExpo #ML #IoT #M2M #BigData

Are You Thinking About Big Data When Doing IoT? - You Should Be There is no denying the Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot topic. Gartner positions IoT as being at the peak of the ‘hype cycle.' From a size perspective, these ‘Things' can be anything, from a small sensor to a large appliance, and everything in between. The data transmitted by these devices, for the most part, tends to be small - tiny packets of information destined for consumption and analysis, bringing value to the business. Is there hype? Yes. As with any new technology, there is always a level of hype involved. Are the data packets involved small? For the most part, yes (there are always exceptions). While both may be true, The Internet of Things is growing at breakneck speed. No matter which analyst you read, the growth predictions are staggering. Gartner predicts that we will hit over 20 billion ... (more)

An #AI-Defined World | @CloudExpo @ReneBuest #AiDI #ArtificialIntelligence

Disruption: The Cloud Was Just the Beginning For years, the cloud has been considered as the most powerful and disruptive force ever. What is true for IT, however, it is hard to find legit arguments for the entire enterprise stack. The cloud delivers the necessary toolset to support the digital evolution on a very technological level to purchase, build and run an infrastructure, platform and software as service. Thus, the cloud must be considered as the foundation, the non-discussable requirement! However, for IT as well as business decision makers the voluntary exercise now is artificial intelligence (AI). Only if they can collect, aggregate, process and make use of the companies' knowledge as well as the knowledge of the surrounding environments in an automated way, they will be competitive in the future. Indeed, last year the hype around AI has reached its clim... (more)

To Bot, or Not to Bot | @ThingsExpo #AI #IoT #M2M #MachineLearning

I developed a bot.  Last weekend I opened the website https://rundexter.com/bot and developed a bot, which I then integrated with Twilio for messaging.  I named it BeccaBot after our daughter.  Just to be clear, her name is Becca, not Bot. It was a bot designed purely to freak-out our daughter.  It was highly successful.  Here are some things I learned. You tell the bot to look for specific words or even phrases and then act upon them in specified ways.  You can answer with text, or a website link, or an image, etc.  You can ask for a name, and program the bot to remember the name. For example: User: Hello Bot: Hi, what's your name? User: Becca Bot: Hello Becca! Bot: I've been reading your Facebook page and see you were in Seattle recently with Claire. That last part I added just to freak-out my daughter - a father's prerogative. The bot was not programmed ... (more)

AWS Broke the Internet Again or, Better, a Typo | @CloudExpo #AI #ML #DL

Amazon Web Services (AWS) broke the Internet again or better "a typo". On February 28, 2017, an Amazon S3 service disruption in AWS' oldest region US-EAST-1 shuts down several major websites and services like Slack, Trello, Quora, Business Insider, Coursera and Time Inc. Other users were reporting that they were also unable to control devices which were connected via the Internet of Things since IFTTT was also down. Those kinds of disruptions are becoming more and more business critical for today's digital economy. To prevent these situations, cloud users should always consider the shared responsibility model in the public cloud. However, there are also ways where Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help. This article describes that an AI-defined Infrastructure respectively an AI-powered IT management system can help to avoid service disruptions of public cloud provide... (more)
