BigQuery and Cloud Machine Learning: advancing large-scale neural network predictions - Intermediate
Featuring Kaz Sato
The real value of BigQuery is not its speed. It's the power of "democratizing enterprise data." Because of BigQuery's scalability, you can isolate any workload on BigQuery from others. That means you can let non-engineers, such as sales, marketing, support and others, execute...DataWarehouse DataAnalytics machinelearning deeplearning bigdata infiniteconf

Google Dataflow: The new open model for batch and stream processing - Beginners
Featuring Robert Kubis
In 2004 MapReduce was introduced, a model that kick-started big data. 10 years later, Google published Dataflow - a new paradigm, integrating batch and stream processing in one common abstraction. This time it was more than a paper, but also an open source Java SDK and a cloud managed service to...bigdata-streaming bigdata Dataflow apache-beam infiniteconf datascience data
Keynote: Fast Big Data - Enabling Financial Oversight
Featuring Dave Thomas
For the last decade, there has been increased concern about the integrity of capital markets. The crash of 2009, the coverage of flash trading, and weekly announcements of cyber attacks have justifiably shaken the public's confidence. However, fast big data also enables the good guys! In this...fast-data data-engineering bigdata datascience infiniteconf
