  • The Modern Data Stack

    12h30 - 13h00

    There is a lot of complexity to the way people approach data management and data integrations, these complexities can be simplified with a Modern Data Stack (MDS). In this presentation, we will address these well-known issues and look at how the introduction of a columnar cloud-based data warehouse revolutionized the way organizations build analytics. We will look at 3 independent components of the Modern Data stack and how they work perfectly in conjunction with the most simplified form of data pipelines. Lastly, we will talk about Fivetran's automated ELT pipelines act like electricity for the MDS.

    Think that artificial intelligence (AI) is hard? Turns out, you're right, and for many business leaders, 2020 has been the year of the "reality check", when they lay the groundwork for a realistic AI-powered future. PwC's third annual AI Predictions report reveals lessons in how business and technology executives are overcoming challenges, what their priorities are for AI progress and how they expect to reap rewards. To help you make the right AI moves this year, PwC has created this list of five priorities to go from reality check to real-world payoff. We predict the businesses that follow this blueprint will be poised for a more transformative payoff in the years ahead.

  • AI for Enterprise Requires Unique Tools to Meet the Needs of Teams within Business

    15h30 - 16h00

    Attributes and real-world examples of the next-generation of software for AI in enterprise: a better means to collaborate, work smarter and get buy-in for your AI projects.

    Previous software tools first designed to develop AI in academic research contexts are less-than-ideal for developing applied AI solutions for enterprise today. Here we present core attributes required for the next-generation of software tools needed to expedite the application of AI in business and industry. We begin with an overview of our research where we assessed the needs of hundreds of AI professionals as well as completed prototypes and simulations of various applied machine learning projects. These findings guided our development of a novel integrated development environment (IDE) for advanced machine learning projects that is visual and less abstract. Our discussion will focus on why features of our software help better meet the needs of AI professionals in enterprise, focusing on issues related to:

    • Better debugging of models and streamlined workflows;
    • Facilitating collaboration and input from non-technical members within the business as well as oversight by domain experts such as clinicians for health-related projects
    • Strengthened abilities to simulate outputs and renderings from machine-learning models in order to better demonstrate AI innovations to clients and regulators.

    Throughout the presentation, we will frame each topic within actual case studies and projects we completed with our enterprise clients in industries that include defense, transportation, biomedical research and more.

Cloud & Cybersecurity Demo Stage

  • Offensive AI vs. Defensive AI: Battle of the Algorithms

    09h30 - 10h00

    Among rapidly evolving technological advancements, the emergence of AI-enhanced malware is making cyber-attacks exponentially more dangerous and harder to identify. In the near future, we will begin to see supercharged, AI-powered cyber-attacks leveraged at scale. To protect against Offensive AI attacks, organizations are turning to defensive cyber AI, which can identify and neutralize emerging malicious activity, no matter when, or where, it strikes.  

     In this session, learn about: 

    • Paradigm shifts in the cyber landscape
    • Advancements in offensive AI attack techniques
    • The Immune System Approach to cyber security and defensive, Autonomous Response capabilities 
    • Real-world examples of emerging threats that were stopped with Cyber AI

  • Connect the lifecycle of your data with Cloudera Data Platform (CDP)

    10h00 - 10h30

    Often, individual teams within organizations race towards their own point solutions for quick wins.  This, however, creates silos that limit the sharing of data and insights across divisions and opens the organization up to significant risks from gaps in governance and security.

    During this demo, you’ll learn how Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) Public Cloud experiences are designed to:

    • Help your organization make sense of all your available data at unprecedented speed and scale
    • Build end-to-end data pipelines spanning edge devices all the way to the public cloud
    • Deploy and manage production machine learning workspaces for teams while maintaining adjustable guardrails for cost
    • Deliver data to the hands of your users that need it without compromising security and governance
