Robustly detecting outliers in nonlinear data using the ROUT method:
Detecting outliers is a regular part of the data cleansing data engineers performs. However, standard outlier detection methods do not generalize to nonlinear regression. He presents an overview of the ROUT method and an application thereof, together with a comparison to other outlier detection methods on our dataset.

Data Warehouse Modernization with AWS:
With the rise of Cloud Computing and Analytics, organizations got almost unlimited capabilities to become data-driven organizations. However, it is not so easy for organizations with legacy technology stack. During this talk, he will cover the journey of Data Warehouse migration projects from an on-premise solution to AWS. Moreover, he will cover the ETL tool selection process for the Cloud DW as well as the adoption process for the end-users. Moreover, he will talk about extending of traditional Data Warehouse for Big Data use cases using EMR and Spark as well as setting Data Lake. Finally, he will make a quick demo of Cloud ETL (Matilion ETL) that accelerated cloud migration projects.
