Big Data: The Future of Creating Knowledge
May 14, 2015
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: Knowledge. Wired editor-in-chief Chris Anderson’s 2008 “The End of Theory: The Data Deluge Makes the Scientific Method Obsolete” chartered a revolution in how businesses are run and humans create knowledge. Today, Big Data is an uber-hyped business and IT buzzword, IoT is accelerating data creation, and Artificial Intelligence, such as Machine Learning and Deep Learning, is back in fashion. Are we at the start of the most radical transformation of thoughts and knowledge, with computers, not humans, leading the way? The experts speak. Vishal Dhanuka, Hortonworks: “Given enough data, everything is statistically significant" (Douglas Merrill). Jay Thoden van Velzen, SAP: “Imagine a box with 500 million knobs, 1,000 light bulbs, and 10 million images to train it with. That’s what a typical Deep Learning system is” (Yann LeCun). Francesco Mari, SAP: “Causal explanations of chance events are inevitably wrong" (Daniel Kahneman). Join us for Big Data: Future of Creating Knowledge
Future of Business with Game Changers, Presented by SAP
Tuesday at 7 AM Pacific Time/10 AM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
The world of business is being dramatically impacted by the increasing adoption of the Cloud, and by the mainstreaming of new technologies that have hitherto been the domain of imaginative Hollywood films, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things, augmented reality and more.
Join host Bonnie D. Graham as she invites you to take an additional coffee break with game-changers for our series on how modern technology is completely redefining the world of business, on the Future of Business with Game-Changers.
With digital transformation becoming a mission-critical imperative, every company needs to simultaneously chart its future path while keeping an eye on the rear-view mirror to see who’s coming up in the fast lane to overtake them. In many ways, this is making every business a technology business, no matter their size, industry or geographic location.
