Abigail Lebrecht (uSwitch)
Data-driven decision making is still contentious, with decision makers skeptical that the data knows more than they do. Often they're right; if data is not communicated with a good understanding of the uncertainty, the findings can be meaningless. Abigail Lebrecht uses Bayesian and frequentist techniques to highlight bad data communication in business and the media and shows how to get it right.

Erik Nygard (Limejump Ltd)
In order to move away from carbon-intensive fossil fuels to a greener generation mix, a transformational shift toward a smarter energy system is needed. This shift requires an unprecedented amount of data to be processed to unlock hidden capacity and demand flexibility on the network. Erik Nygard explains why this is only possible with disruptive energy tech and advanced analytics.

Gopal GopalKrishnan (OSIsoft, LLC.), Hoa Tram (OSIsoft)
For decades, industrial manufacturing has dealt with large volumes of sensor data and handled a variety of data from the various manufacturing operations management (MOM) systems in production, quality, maintenance, and inventory. Gopal GopalKrishnan and Hoa Tram offer lessons learned from applying big data ecosystem tools to oil and gas, energy, utilities, metals, and mining use cases.
