A Natural Approach to Big Data
(formerly Flocks, Swarms and Starfish: Simply Advanced Tactics from the Natural World)
Technology is as much about technique as it is tool, and the working relationship between humans and “big data” is no exception. We simply can’t reap the benefits of all the data available to us without rethinking how humans and computers relate to each other. Today, programmers, analysts and others are challenging paradigms that have held since the beginning of the electronic computing era – looking at how machines can learn, how intelligence can emerge from distributed systems, and more. Join us to learn about some of the ways that people are learning new ways of partnering with computers to find solutions for some really big problems and opportunities.
Big data is useless unless you can make sense of it. Sam Charrington has a perspective on how the tools that sit on top of big data can make it useful for things like resource allocation, revenue optimization, and even predictive medicine. He’s gone from leading teams that pioneered distributed computing systems inspired by bees to consulting at the leading edge of machine learning. He’ll share the potential he sees as resilient systems begin to learn, and he’ll help us explore where we’re headed as machines gain the ability to make complex decisions faster than people can.
Leslie McIntosh is Director of Clinical Informatics at Washington University School of Medicine and co-leads the St. Louis Machine Learning Group. She’ll share how modeling systems of patients, research and outcomes provides evidence to guide care decisions, and how seeing them as social actors helps make sense of really big data.
