Software Experts Summit 2013
Join us at IEEE Software magazine’s Software Experts Summit 2013, a one-day event at which leaders from industry and research examine uses, analytics, core techniques, and technologies to explore the opportunities and challenges that smart data science present.
SES 13 will showcase practical talks from real-world practitioners as well as thought leaders in research to advance understanding of this timely topic. Come network with both presenters and fellow attendees!
The lineup of speakers will include luminaries from both industry and research, such as
- James Whittaker, Microsoft
- Paul Zikopoulos, IBM
- Wolfram Schulte, Microsoft Research
- Jeromy Carriere, Google
- John Howie, Cloud Security Alliance
- Ayse Bener, Ryerson University
- Forrest Shull, Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering
Why Smart Data Science? According to IBM, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. Ninety percent of the data available has been produced during the past two years, and that amount is expected to increase exponentially in the years to come. But dealing with the increasing magnitude of generated data is only one aspect of the challenges we face when it comes to being smart about data. Additional challenges exist in
- using even small sets of data to guide decision making due to inconsistent data structures;
- analyzing different types of data, such as text messages, multimedia presentations, and video streams; and
- effectively using the technologies that create and manage data.
And yet, organizations must make reliable, secure, and quick decisions on such data every day.
Check back often! We’ll be posting additional speakers as we finalize the day’s agenda.
On June 8th, Seattle’s IEEE section sponsored a booth at the 2013 Science Festival. Fun was had by all, especially the volunteers that helped man the booth that day. A special thanks to Walter Wittel, Nathan Hawkinson, Siva Narayanan, and Michael that helped man our booth and helped out with the group at Seattle’s Maker Fair. We could not have made this event the success it was without you. Also, thank you Scott Monk for coming out of nowhere and putting together that awesome Kirlian display. Our booth was full of some interesting things for patrons to experiment with and experience. I think we inspired a few kids. As proof, one of our Drawdio sheets had this image on it. It sounds like “Mary had a Little Lamb,” but starts to sound a little ‘techno’ after awhile.
