What you'll learn

  • Explore Intel's strategy to lower barriers to advanced analytics and AI, make results faster and more efficient, and enable data scientists and developers to make better use of existing infrastructure

Description

Competing on insight is fast becoming the new normal. The extraction of insight from data ushers in new opportunities to innovate faster, streamline costs, and deliver more customized customer experiences. And yet the barriers to efficient, rapid and scalable analytics are holding back enterprises of all sizes as they wrestle with everything from managing data sprawl to deploying new algorithms.

Kevin Huiskes and Radhika Rangarajan discuss Intel’s strategy to lower barriers to advanced analytics and AI, make results faster and more efficient, and enable data scientists and developers to make better use of existing infrastructure, emphasizing solutions based on the latest Intel Xeon Scalable platform and the open source framework BigDL, a distributed deep learning library for Apache Spark.

This session is sponsored by Intel.
