#cdsEurope Day Two ends in ‘Big Data for Social Good’: Data Officers, Analysts and Scientists = MYTH BUSTERS!

16-09-13-chief-data-scientist-day-2First speaker Armando Vieira from Bupa Global, a health insurance company, about Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

Second speaker Dan Kellett from Capital One – promising ‘certainty’ in the credit card market – by combining the understanding of statistics with the understanding of data.

His Venn diagram says:

  • Data Scientist = Machine Learning + Coding + Data Engineering

He advocates using the right tool! Here is a catalogue of data analytics tools

Mark Wall from IBM talks about Cognitive Business:

  • we can’t measure productivity;
  • we can’t measure interactivity and transactions;
  • a war on talent has been created.

Cognitive computing will transform our world:

  •  ‘Watson Virtual Agent’
  • ‘Digital Insights’ is about the visualisation of transactions
  • ‘Design Thinking’ = user outcomes + multidisciplinary teams + ‘restless reinvention’

‘Outthinking’ the competition means conceiving new opportunities:

  • our minds don’t distinguish between the ‘real’ and the ‘virtual’
  • we haven’t yet got the ‘lens of focus’
  • using tools as ‘enablers’ and ‘advisors’.

All in all, a FABULOUS event with EXCELLENT talks and discussions – ending very upbeat with Nuria Oliver who talked about Big Data for Social Good and OPAL!!!

Next, I shall compare the functionality of my prototype with IBM Watson!
