Check out our YouTube playlist to watch all the talks from Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise 2020. Abstract As massive amounts of new geospatial data are collected, it is increasingly challenging to search and find data of interest. New upcoming NASA missions, such as NISAR and SWOT will be generating tens of terabytes a day, … Read More
Check out our YouTube playlist to watch all the talks from Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise 2020. Abstract In this talk we look at the challenges of making geospatial data accessible and rapidly consumable in disaster response scenarios. The wide variety and large volume of commercial and public data available in AWS coupled with scalable … Read More
This talk will review two common use cases for the use of captured metric data: 1) Real-time analysis, visualization, and quality assurance, and 2) Ad-hoc analysis. The most common open source streaming options will be mentioned, however this talk be concerned with Apache Flink specifically. A brief discussion of Apache Beam will also be included in the context of the larger discussion of a unified data processing model.
Apache Spark is one the most popular general purpose distributed systems in the past few years. Apache Spark has APIs in Scala, Java, Python and more recently a few different attempts to provide support for R, C#, and Julia. This talk looks at Apache Spark from a performance/scaling point of view and the work we … Read More
I was lucky enough last week to attend PHLAI, a Comcast-sponsored conference on machine learning and artificial intelligence. The dreary weather did not dampen our spirits as practitioners and business stakeholders met to discuss one of the most important trends in our lifetime.
I recently attended the O’Reilly AI Conference in New York where artificial intelligence practitioners showcased the impressive strides they’ve made so far in using AI for real-world applications
The tech industry is in the middle of a massive, uncontrolled social experiment. Having made commercial mass surveillance the economic foundation of our industry, we are now learning how indiscriminate collections of personal data, and the machine learning algorithms they fuel, can be put to effective political use. Unfortunately, these experiments are being run in … Read More
We will talk about Spotify’s story of migrating our big data infrastructure to Google Cloud. Over the past year or so we moved away from maintaining our own 2500+ node Hadoop cluster to managed services in the cloud. We replaced two key components in our data processing stack, Hive and Scalding, with BigQuery and Scio … Read More
Today’s podcast features Ken Rimple’s interview with Sameer Farooqui and Brian Clapper of DataBricks, the creators of the Spark Big Data engine.
Spark is becoming a data processing giant, but it leaves much as an exercise for the user. Developers need to write specialized logic to move between batch and streaming modes, manually deal with late or out-of-order data, and explicitly wire complex flows together. This talk looks at how we tackled these problems over a multi-petabyte dataset at Cerner.
