"Detecting risks in unstructured data by scaling the execution of Data Science"

How Deloitte has detected “the signal in the noise” to solve client regulatory and risk challenges by creating a flexible API platform (“Infinity Architecture”) for executing Machine Learning Models and Risk engines at scale. Leveraging the elastic scalability of AWS along with Open Source and custom solutions to process audio, documents and other unstructured data to provide insights and detect risks and issues for clients.

Talk 2:

"Event-Driven Data Lake and Infrastructure as Code Concept at UK e-commerce"

What could be the data platform requirements for an e-commerce company? AWS has a range of services that can be utilised to build a robust, event-driven, serverless data platform. This helps significantly reduce development and operational resource requirements and enables a more self-service oriented approach to data. However, are AWS's serverless technologies flexible enough for complex use cases? How much can a technology like Kinesis Firehose be customised? Can an efficient test-release cycle be put in place for a serverless technology? What tool should we use to deploy the whole infrastructure? We will walk through these questions, share our experiences and present our „lessons learned” during our journey to building an event-driven serverless data platform.
