IDC’s Data Science and Big Data in Digital Transformation Forum is an opportunity for executives to explore and discuss the challenges, apportunities, and best practices. It is an information-sharing forum providing a networking platform for CxOs and LOB executives from leading local organizations.

Attendees will engage in challenging debates and cutting edge knowledge sharing with IDC analysts and industry thought leaders regarding the opportunities that Big Data, AI & Cognitive provides to gain competitive advantage.

Big Data, Analytics is the one of the pillars of IDC’s 3rd Platform, a set of business-transforming technologies and applications that also includes cloud services, mobility, and social business. The use of BDA to support business strategies is a multifaceted subject. On the one hand, it is a matter of collecting and aggregating internal and external sources of information — often in real time — as seamlessly as possible to enable analysis. In another sense, it’s about developing the insights from analytics to extract value from those enormous data stores. On yet another level, it’s a question of where and how those insights are applied within the enterprise. As companies experiment with IoT and make initial deployments, they need to cope with many complexities and challenges. Companies worry about upfront costs and security risks, while these systems require new skills and planning to develop new systems and architectures. Furthermore, the impact of these systems can cause further challenges, as process automation can be transformative and drive dramatic changes to the organization.

Each year sees new investment to manage and harness the value of data of all types and forms that could be relevant to drive business value – a sign of continuing interest and increased opportunity. Yet big data and analytics is not one thing, so there is not one future or one opportunity. Big data/analytics is being applied in diverse solution contexts: people (customers, employees), things (products, materials), and money (accounts, investments). And analytics is being deployed in various workloads – real-time operations to offline discovery/exploration to prospective planning and strategy. Ultimately, however, BDA, used effectively, enables a continuous process of leveraging massive streams of structured and unstructured information for business value.

Machine Learning & Deep Learning Fundamentals

São cada vez mais frequentes as menções nos media generalistas a termos como Machine Learning, Deep Learning ou Inteligência Artificial. Em geral, fala-se do poder disruptivo destas tecnologias e nas formas como poderão vir a transformar o funcionamento das empresas e da sociedade. Muitas vezes é difícil compreender a diferença entre o que já existe, aquilo que estas tecnologias já fazem e aquilo que se pensa poderem vir a fazer. É pouco frequente encontrar explicações claras sobre o que são e como funcionam estas tecnologias. Sendo certo que terão um papel importante no nosso futuro, é importante compreender em que consistem, o seu estado de desenvolvimento, os requisitos para a sua aplicação e qual o seu real potencial, só assim poderemos preparar o futuro.

Neste workshop iremos olhar para o que realmente significam estes termos, o que está por detrás destas buzzwords. Após o workshop os participantes terão uma noção clara do que é Machine Learning e Deep Learning, os diferentes tipos de Machine Learning, como funciona, como pode ser utilizada e potenciais desenvolvimentos futuros.

Formador: Fernando Bação, Subdirector, Nova IMS, Director of the Investigation Center, MagIC; Information Management Program Director, Nova IMS.
