Featured Sessions


Three Problems, Three Myths, Three Realities

Speaker: Anil Gadre, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer at MapR Technologies

This session explores the hottest problems customers are struggling to sort out given the advent of many new breakthrough technological tools. It also addresses conventional wisdom and myths and highlights the reality around three hot issues with best practice guidance and recommendations for each.




Putting Data Into Action: How Technology Can Speed Time to Value

Speaker: Jack Norris, Senior Vice President Data & Applications at MapR Technologies

The session will provide a deeper look at how an underlying platform can simplify and speed the ability to put data into action. This session will also cover first use cases, architectural design, and implementation best practices, along with how small agile teams can drive successful projects.




Can Video Push Pub/Sub Streaming to the Brink?

Assessing the practicality of distributed streams for delivering video to GPUs for real-time face recognition.

Speaker: Ian Downard, Senior Technical Engineer at MapR Technologies

Deep learning with GPUs is often used to accelerate model development and performance in production. However, the challenge is feeding data to GPUs as fast as their ability to process it. Integrating GPUs natively into a data platform creates a breakthrough that allows for ingestion of high quality data into GPUs. This presentation busts the myths that bringing data to GPUs is hard and requires specialized data clusters. The demo application for real-time face detection from live video feeds builds on a sound but simple GPU based architecture and uses the same platform that is used for your data analytics.




Expert Panel

Panelists: Jack Norris, Anil Gadre, Keynote Speaker, Customer presenter

Turn ideas from the day into your own practical course of action. This panel of experts applies the insights from the day’s sessions to real-world challenges by engaging the audience in a spirited discussion.
