The Frontiers of Technology sessions leverage one of the largest technology clusters in the world to provide a broad perspective on the technologies driving the future. From security to data storage, civic media to the cloud, robotic ocean exploration to deep space, to the convergence of AI and Big Data, these sessions present a rich smorgasbord of ideas and their impacts on you and your community.
Panels consist of:
CIO Panel: Challenges of the Cloud Based Enterprise: Enterprises are faced with yet another major shift in computing paradigms to a virtual cloud based environment. CIOs have to balance the challenges of security and privacy imperatives with the benefits of the new architectures. A distinguished panel of CIOs from different industries share their perspectives and strategies to deal with this tectonic shift.
Big Data Analytics: Is more data, better data? How do we identify and develop intelligent data that filters out the noise from the real information? This panel explores the frontiers of Big Data drawing from a cross section of industries and vendors working at the leading edge in this domain.
Interconnected everything – The World at my fingertips: From connected cars to connected homes, devices are everywhere. How does one deal with the deluge of data and ensure security and safety as these systems grow more complex and interconnected?
Taking Artificial Intelligence to the next level: The explosion of data and intelligent devices has spurred the parallel development of tools and techniques to parse the flood of data being generated. Find out how these solutions – from Deep Learning to Natural Language processing – are being used across industries and applications – from finance to automobiles, from robotics to personal assistants.
Social/Civic Data: How does one unlock the vast amounts of data generated by social, civic and municipal organizations? How can one engage citizens to help identify and solve municipal problems through shared data and applications? This panel presents how some cities and governments are operating by making public data more accessible to spur innovative partnerships and crowdsourced solutions.
