SAS: Machine Learning Models and Streaming Analytics on the Edge and in the Cloud (9:30am – 10:30am ET)

Machine learning provides powerful techniques including computer vision, device monitoring, vibration analysis, and many others to predict when machines will break or for object detection for improving business outcomes. Join SAS team members Steve Sparano, Principal Product Manager for IoT, and Tom Tuning, IoT Solution Architect to learn how some of these techniques can be applied on the edge or in the cloud using streaming analytics from Python and open source so you can improve the bottom line.

Klarrio & SAS (10:30am – 11:30am ET)

More information coming soon!

Klarrio: AL on IoT, Incremental Online Learning (11:30am – 12:30pm ET)

IoT affords exciting opportunities to capture and process data with very low latencies—especially useful for use cases where adaptation and immediacy are required, e.g., health monitoring; industrial equipment monitoring and control; cyber-threat detection; or highly personalized intelligent home automation. Conventional batch-oriented machine learning remains useful in streaming, but emerging incremental techniques address use cases where the batch approach is insufficient. Join Ted Morris of Klarrio US to talk about these new streaming use cases, and learn foundation concepts for planning and implementing incremental learning solutions. Background in basic streaming data concepts and in Python highly recommended, although not required.

Networking (12:30pm – 1pm ET)
