2EMC CONFIDENTIAL—INTERNAL USE ONLY Session Descriptions The Data Dream Team As the promise of data science skyrockets, so does demand for its practitioners. Organizations looking to quickly grow data science capabilities are finding a brutally competitive market. At the same time, statistically minded professionals across the business and students in universities around the globe are flocking to the field. In this chaos of a fast emerging field, how do you understand what is essential? What does a data dream team look like, and what is the DNA of its members? Keynote: What We Can Predict About Prediction Statistician, political analyst and FiveThirtyEight.com founder Nate Silver debunks the myths of prediction in subjects ranging from the financial markets to weather to sports to politics. As data science grows, so does the world of prediction. Yet with this advancement comes a danger: predictions that fail often do so at a great cost to society. How do you distinguish a true signal from a universe of noisy data? Nate, seeking truth, has researched the most successful forecasters in our world, from hurricanes to baseball, from the poker table to the stock market. Hear what he’s learned, and change the way you think about prediction. Roundtable: The Economic, Political, and Societal Roles of Social Data A social data explosion has unleashed the beginnings of a fundamental shift in how individuals behave, companies function, and governments and other organizations wield influence. Yet, we are just starting to understand how the social data movement will shape our future. Is there truly revolutionary value in social data or are we approaching a bubble? Where is course-changing social data value to be found? What will characterize those organizations that are positioned to extract and use social data to lead their markets in new directions? How will social data change the way we think about our future? What are the roadblocks and risks? We’re gathered some of the top social data minds to tear through some of the most challenging and provocative themes we’re encountering and tap into a vision for what comes next in a discussion led by the international editor of TIME, Jim Frederick. Big Data Shift and Business Transformation We’re already seeing how data has shifted the way entire industries move. Where are the most profound impacts being felt already, and what has data science already accomplished? To explore this phenomenon, we’ve brought together captivating use cases that impact us all. Hear how data science is changing our lives with firsthand accounts from the front lines. Get a chance to pop the hood and get into the guts with a technologist to technologist conversation about what these masters were setting out to accomplish, how they approached it, and lessons learned along the way.
3EMC CONFIDENTIAL—INTERNAL USE ONLY Session Descriptions Analytics Maturity: Master or Novice? What industries are evolving most rapidly to seize the power of data science? How do organizations need to change to become data-driven? Join us for a discussion with Michael Chui of McKinsey and one of the authors of the seminal report, “Big data: The next frontier for innovation, competition, and productivity”, as he describes the model for progressing to analytics maturity. Navigating the Road from Business Intelligence to Data Science: Trials and Triumphs What really are the limits of BI? What does it take to transform to reap the promise of data science? And how will the field change as more BI experts start practicing data science? Learn the tricks of the road from a leader that has successfully made the transformation. From Raw Data to Value Data No doubt: the promise of big data can be tantalizing. But even as the opportunity becomes better understood, the data itself disappoints. As industries evolve, the conversation shifts to focus on not just big data but usable data—and ultimately to data that delivers top line value. These speakers have encountered—and are overcoming—the limitations. Hear their struggles and strategies firsthand, and hear their vision for transforming data into gold. Tapping Into the Pulse of the Data Science Movement The level of data science innovation in universities is astounding. We’ve gathered the most influential young professors in the field together to take us through what’s happening right at the pulse. Moderated by one of the great pulse setters himself, Mike Driscoll of Metamarkets. Data Visualization at the Point of Influence Data holds the promise of catalyzing unprecedented innovation, shifting the way we think about our world, or even mobilizing entire communities—but only if the stories are heard. The practice of visualization has evolved rapidly and the conversation is shifting. How do you transform insights into powerful stories? How do you ensure that visualization not just reveals an insight, but stimulates new understanding? Explore the importance, challenges and power of effective visual storytelling. Our Data, Our Stories, Our Lives The Data Science Summit welcomes back the “crowd favorite” speaker, Jonathan Harris to take us on an inspiring exploration of the personal data story we are all creating.
