Featured conference sessions

1:30pm–2:10pm Wednesday, 12/02/2015
Shirshanka Das (LinkedIn)
Slides:   1-PDF 
LinkedIn describes how they’ve built a self-serve petabyte-scale reporting platform centered around Hadoop, that powers all business decision making at LinkedIn. We describe how we overcame challenges to scale to over a thousand analysts, over a thousand metrics, and provide daily, hourly, as well as real-time reports. This has reduced turnaround times for dashboards from weeks to a few hours.
11:00am–11:40am Wednesday, 12/02/2015
Kai Xin Thia (Lazada)
Southeast Asia provides a unique challenge to large recommender systems: how will you design one system that recommends products to millions of users, many whom are spread across several countries, with their own language and cultural preferences? Well, you don't. Instead, we will explore a hybrid system that integrates inputs from a variety of recommenders and deploys it on a distributed system.
2:20pm–3:00pm Thursday, 12/03/2015
Julie Rodriguez (Sapient Global Markets)
Designing data visualizations presents us with unique and interesting challenges: how to tell a compelling story; how to deliver important information in a forthright, clear format; and how to make visualizations beautiful and engaging. In this talk, Julie will share a few disruptive designs and connect those back to vizipedia, her compiled data visualization library.
11:00am–11:40am Wednesday, 12/02/2015
Todd Lipcon (Cloudera)
This session will investigate the trade-offs between real-time transactional access and fast analytic performance in Hadoop from the perspective of storage engine internals. We will discuss recent advances, evaluate benchmark results from current generation Hadoop technologies, and propose potential ways ahead for the Hadoop ecosystem to conquer its newest set of challenges.
2:20pm–3:00pm Thursday, 12/03/2015
Selene Chew (Adatao)
In "The Power of Myth," Joseph Campbell distilled the modern story form as "A Hero's Journey." This talk presents the relevance of the story form in data analysis, and shows examples of how to tell insightful data stories.
11:50am–12:30pm Wednesday, 12/02/2015
Thomas Holleczek (Singtel)
We present a traffic measurement system that monitors subway and expressway traffic from telco location data.
4:00pm–4:40pm Thursday, 12/03/2015
Amit Kapoor (narrativeVIZ Consulting)

Understand techniques to effectively visualise multi-dimensional data to aid exploratory data analysis. We will look at standard 2D/3D, geometric transformations, glyph-based, pixel-based, and stacking-based approaches to visualise this data, and also explore the interactive approaches needed to make them work.
