Don't get stung by extreme data (or honey bees) (sponsored by Kinetica)

Daniel Raskin (Kinetica), Jonathan Greenberg (Kinetica)
1:45pm–2:25pm Tuesday, May 1, 2018
Location: Beekman Parlor

What you'll learn

  • Explore technology relating to the extreme data economy through an example that uses real-time data collection, machine learning, and analytics visualization help rescue the honey bee


In the new era of the extreme data economy, companies across industries are turning data into an asset above and beyond any product or service they offer. But unprecedented agility is required to operationalize AI, keep business in motion, and succeed in this post-big data era. To enable this level of agility, companies are turning to instant insight engines that are powered by NVIDIA GPUs, bringing unparalleled speed, streaming data analysis, visual foresight, and streamlined machine learning all in the same data platform.

Daniel Raskin and Jonathan Greenberg explain what the extreme data economy is about and how machine learning advances along with accelerated parallel computing will play a key role in translating data into instant insight to power business in motion, using a real-world environmental analytics problem—the collapse of domestic honey bee hives—as an example. You’ll see how real-time data collection, machine learning, and analytics visualization help rescue the honey bee with IoT streaming sensor data in real time, edge-computing solutions that process image inferencing algorithms on still images and live video in the field, and a GPU-accelerated database engine for real-time data ingestion, query, machine learning, and visualization. You’ll also learn how adaptable and accessible these cutting-edge technologies have become to rapidly optimize, validate, and deploy trained neural networks­—all while helping to rescue the honey bee in the real world.
