Keynote: The ideal AI Stack - Enhancing models through human intelligence

Tricia Wang, Global Tech Ethnographer & Co-founder, Sudden Compass
AI offers the tantalising promise of better predicting the future to drive the right decisions but making the most of it is not as easy as it seems…

For companies to capitalise on AI, they must know how to successfully leverage meaningful data. While AI technologies can surface more data points and guidance, it needs to be matched with human knowledge to generate high fidelity insights. Tricia Wang will share strategic tips on building data models for today’s business paradigm that reflect human input to evolve the next generation of machine learning. The key to unlocking real world applications of AI is when data scientists can work with domain experts to integrate their human intelligence or what she calls Thick Data to improve their models and be closer to delivering that promise.

Global technology ethnographer Dr. Tricia Wang, helps companies innovate and grow by integrating big data — all that you know about your customers and your market — with thick data, the human element that is invisible to quantitative data analysis. Tricia is the co-founder of Sudden Compass, a firm that helps companies leverage data to move at the speed of their customers. She is a recognized leading authority on digital transformation, operationalizing data science, customer experience, and ethics of personal data usage in artificial intelligence. In addition to her work in industry, Tricia has spent decades researching youth culture, social media, and Chinese internet culture. Her work resonates with a wide audience, from C-Suite leaders to data scientists to designers to marketers and university students.

There is no greater risk than being blind to the unknown.

Leverage the cloud to modernise your data warehouse

  • Joydeep Das, Vice President, Product Marketing

Harness real-time for faster insights in a rapidly evolving world

  • Dinesh Chandrasekha, Director Product Marketing
  • Peter Leckie, Solutions Engineer

Streaming data is on the rise and poses a challenge for enterprises to manage since it is high-volume, high-velocity data in varied forms and formats. However,  the primary issue is that enterprises are struggling to harness such fast data to get immediate insights and actionable intelligence in real-time. Businesses are missing out on key opportunities to retain customers, improve operational efficiencies or boost their revenue when they are unable to harness the value of fast data in real-time. Streaming platforms can help but adopting streaming platforms can also be challenging. In this session, Dinesh Chandrasekhar will highlight some of the industry-wide challenges, the need for harnessing real-time and key use cases that drive immense business value in a rapidly evolving world. During this session, you will also hear from local Cloudera Solutions Engineer, Peter Leckie, on questions he regularly hears from customers on the challenges they face.
