Last week, from the 4th to the 7th December, the first edition of Strata Data Conference Singapore took place, the event that brings together the best Data Scientists, analysts, executives and leading companies from around the world in its different editions, with the aim of sharing the latest trends and the most innovative solutions for companies around Big Data and Data Science.
Carme Artigas, who has also participated this year in Strata London and Strata New York, has been responsible for opening the Strata Data Conference in Singapore with a keynote of high expertise entitled “From Smart Cities to Intelligent Societies”. Artigas has explained how smart cities facilitate the convergence of technologies such as Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, IoT, Robotics, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.
“It is necessary to move towards an intelligent society, towards cities that inspire and empower people to create, experiment and, above all, reinforce human potential,” claimed Carme precisely in Singapore, the well-known ‘Smart Nation’, “This represents multiple benefits for cities: from more transparency and more efficiency to more security and economic development “.
In addition, our CEO and Co-Founder has also starred in the paper “Analytics at the core of IoT ecosystems” in which she has tackled the Internet of Things from a new point of view: the importance that analytics must have to collect benefits from IoT technologies. In this line, she highlighted the need for a new data-oriented culture. “Companies must be aware that the strategic value of companies lies in their own data.”
Precisely, in the framework of her third presentation “Analytics Centers of Excellence as a way to accelerate Big Data Adoption by business”, Artigas has defended the creation of analytical centers of excellence to accelerate the Big Data adoption process with the aim of converting companies in ‘data-driven’ companies.
“When companies see that Big Data has business value, the next challenge is to scale up the Big Data use cases they implement and make them really transversal throughout the organization,” concluded Carme Artigas.
Among the speakers invited to the Strata Data Conference in Singapore were Paco Nathan, O’Reilly Media, John Akred, CTO of Silicon Valley Data Science, Amr Awadallah, CTO of Cloudera or Jesse Anderson, Managing Director of Big Data Institute.
