In the spirit of fun and learning about advanced data analytics, Andrew and John will share their NCAA bracket that was built with a cognitive computing engine. CBIG has been leveraging a software called Eureqa, which provides organizations with an understanding of the complex relationships hidden in both structured and unstructured data while enabling deterministic and measurable actions with a high degree of confidence.

The event begins at 3:00 with networking / happy hour followed by presentations from John and Andrew at 5:30. We'll continue with a networking session after the presentations until 7:00. Beer, wine, soft drinks, pizza, and wings will be provided.


Andrew, a former technical lead building the Vertica Analytics Platform, will be joined by John Onder, a recognized leading expert in the strategy, planning and implementation of business intelligence, data warehouse and big data analytics solutions.
