PRO: Artificial Intelligence Dev Summit [clear filter]
Thursday, June 20

11:30am EDT

Sawyer can address several topics including:  -- Lessons learned from using AI robots -- How to build a robotics and data science team (Easypost has a team of 20 robotics and industrial engineers tackling AI robots) -- Will robots replace humans ‚Äì a perspective from a company doing exactly that -- Building a predictive analytics model from scratch including common mistakes. Easypost has built a machine-learning cluster that predicts when packages will arrive based on a number of factors. When a FedEx facility was bombed last year, they saw the data/interruption before the event was made public. -- How to design a warehouse for AI/robots from the ground up (e.g. everything has bar codes, everything is in tubs, etc.)

Workshop Stage 2

1:30pm EDT

PRO TALK: Python and R for Advanced Analytics
As the complexity and volume of data grows, data teams are optimizing their analytics workflows to support more complex logic, advanced transformations and customized visualizations that will be crucial in future proofing your business. There isn’t an abundance of external conversation about the languages used to analyze these massive quantities of data, but analysts and developers are becoming more sophisticated as their field matures, evolving to work with bigger datasets and integrating new techniques into their workflow. This means more than just finding new ways to innovate with SQL — advanced languages like R and Python have become a more critical part of everyday analysis and should be a centerpiece in the developers “day zero” strategy when building any technology stack. In this presentation,Britton Stamper, Senior Sales Engineer at Periscope Data by Sisense , will discuss the advantages of implementing SQL vs. Python & R as part of your developer tech stack strategy and explain how to bring the workflows of all three together on one platform. To illustrate how SQL and Python work together to answer complex data questions, Britton will share real-life examples of how adopting this strategy can impact your business now and in the future.
