    IP EXPO Keynote Theatre

    Wed 4th Oct 10:00 to 10:40

    Opening Keynote: Where IT and Physics Collide

    Rock star physicist and TV personality Professor Brian Cox will explore the incredible world of where science and IT collide. With the end of Moore’s Law seemingly only a few years away and the data centres powering the cloud having to expand exponentially to keep ahead of demand the current trajectory we are on seems unsustainable.

     

    Technologies such as IOT, artificial intelligence, and analytics are all booming and will require ever more storage, power and computing muscle. We store everything and want to analyse it, automate it and access it immediately wherever we are and so far only 40% of the world is online.

     

    Physics increasingly holds the answer as scientists armed with this incredible computing power work on game changing technologies such as graphene and quantum computing. Professor Cox will remove the science fiction from the science fact and help us all understand how will these technologies will impact IT and cyber security and all of us.

    Business as Usual in a Digital War Zone

    The increasing sophistication and damage from online threats has escalated in parallel with increasing demands for business productivity, interoperability, and anytime access. The ability to work amidst and within these two exponential trends is this era's single most complex technical challenge. In this presentation Brad Anderson (Corp. VP, Microsoft) will discuss in detail new technology pioneered by Microsoft to protect organizations while allowing them to improve collaboration, data access, and productivity.

  • Using deep learning and domain specific enterprise data to build state-of-the-art Entity Recognition models for your voice and chat AI products Add to Schedule Vijay Ramakrishnan  |   Cisco  |   AI in the Enterprise

    AI in the Enterprise Theatre

    Wed 4th Oct 11:00 to 11:30

    Using deep learning and domain specific enterprise data to build state-of-the-art Entity Recognition models for your voice and chat AI products

    Currently, Named Entity Recognition (NER) tasks use shallow machine learning models like Maximum Entropy Markov Models or Multi-class logistic regression to get good accuracies on Natural Language Processing tasks. More recently, deep neural models, especially recurrent neural networks like Long short-term memory (LSTM) have given state-of-the-art accuracies on NER data. We present a hybrid model that uses gazetteer data with a bi-directional LSTM model to beat current state-of-the-art accuracies, enabling our systems to power IOT type applications which have a high transcription error rate.

    Serverless Computing for the Internet of Things

    Many systems now being promoted as Internet of Things platforms are really existing products and services being rebranded as 'IoT'. Others offer 'complete' IoT solutions, which attempt to lock customers in to a single vendor solution.
    Red Sift is a platform designed to integrate dissimilar  systems and platforms with minimum effort. It offers a real-time, event driven serverless processing model which scales automatically.

  • Predicting congestion on London’s roads with Beam and Tensorflow Add to Schedule Oliver Gindele  |   Datatonic  |   Data Analytics

    Data Analytics Theatre

    Wed 4th Oct 12:20 to 12:50

    Predicting congestion on London’s roads with Beam and Tensorflow

    Predicting congestion is an important part of any traffic management system. With accurate forecasting traffic can be effectively regulated, ensuring safe and fast journeys on the roads. In this work we present a deep learning model which accurately forecasts congestion based on road sensor data from Transport for London (TfL).

    The IoT (internet of things) nature and scale of the raw sensor data demands extensive preprocessing as a first step towards a predictive traffic model. We used Apache Beam for this task as it let us create efficient data pipelines which can be executed in distributed frameworks such as Apache Spark of Apache Flink. Beam natively handles streaming workloads which makes it an ideal candidate for large scale preprocessing of real-time data such as streams from road sensors.

    The preprocessed data was then used to train a neural network to predict the congestion ahead of time. A recurrent neural network (RNN) was chosen to model the traffic time-series for each of the sensors. This deep learning architecture was implemented in Tensorflow and it allowed us to accurately model the time-series and the correlations between the sensors on the road network. With this end-to-end example we demonstrate how Beam and Tensorflow can be used to build predictive models for time series data.

    Rage with the machine not against it. Machine learning for Event Management

    With an explosion in the complexity of IT, managing the events generated by your catalogue of different monitoring solutions is getting out of control. And between the sheer volume, configuring the aggregation/filter/impact rules and the lack of contextual information, reacting effectively has become near impossible.

    This challenge can be simplified with machine learning and analytics. Come to this session to learn how to bring machine learning and service context to managing events, cutting through the noise and ensuring you can act on the alerts that matter.

    Want to speak with robots like people? Speak with people like robots!

    Natural language processing in legal information offers insights relevant to the entire field. The complexity of legal jargon makes abstracting patterns especially difficult.

    Pre-processing the data well is thus extremely important. One way to improve results is to feed better data to the algorithm. Better data can also come from conscious language choices of the data’s creators: lawyers, judges, academics, and others. The emergence of a data-structure-consciousness in the creation of data by legal professionals would reveal the possibility of a simplified dictionary designed by NLP-specialists that allows for perfect man-machine communication.

  • GDPR and the work-time paradox Add to Schedule Stewart Room  |   PwC  |   IP EXPO Keynote

    IP EXPO Keynote Theatre

    Wed 4th Oct 15:00 to 15:30

    GDPR and the work-time paradox

    The GDPR is built on a false assumption of organisational readiness for the new law and data protection confidence and maturity. This false assumption creates a work time paradox, that there has always been too much to do and too little time, therefore legislative compliance failure is inevitable, even in the best run and best resourced organisations. If you're running a GDPR programme, how do you prioritise and know if your choices are good? What's your understanding of GDPR? You need to understand the concepts of adverse scrutiny, and the priorities of people and stakeholders who will want to challenge you.

    PANEL: DevOps: What’s Now, What’s Next?

    It’s now accepted wisdom that adopting some DevOps methodologies in software development is advantageous for companies of all sizes. The principles of DevOps have gone from ideals discussed between a small group of enthusiasts to an item point on the agenda of CIOs of most of the world’s largest companies in a little under 10 years. But why has it become so popular and has it lived up to its early principles? As adoption becomes more widespread how are those principles likely to change?
