Building The Data Lakehouse

Online event

First there were applications. Then there were data warehouses. Then people found they could start to include text into their decision making process. Next analog/IoT data appeared and there were data lakes and data scientists. Out of this miasma comes the data lakehouse. The data lakehouse incorporates different kinds of data and provides an infrastructure for the data scientist, the business analyst and the business owner to have insight into their data like never before. The data lakehouse gives new meaning to the term “data driven”.

This presentation discusses the origins of the data lakehouse, the architectural structure of the data lakehouse, and the challenges and the opportunities presented by the data lakehouse.

Agenda:

11:45 am - 11:50 am Arrival and socializing
11:50 am - 11:55 am Opening
12:00 pm - 1:50 pm Bill Inmon, "Building The Data Lakehouse"
1:50 pm - 2:00 pm Q&A

About Bill Inmon

Bill Inmon – the father of the data warehouse, has written 62 books and sold over a million copies worldwide. Bill’s books have been translated into 9 languages. One book Bill wrote has sold over 500,000 copies. Bill was named by ComputerWorld magazine as one of the ten people who most influenced the first 40 years of the computer profession.

Bill’s latest book coming out in October is BUILDING THE DATA LAKEHOUSE, Technics Publications, New Jersey. Bill resides in Denver, Colorado.

Cloud Microservices for the next Billion People

Online event

The food wastage in India is 70 tonnes per year, and there is mismanagement at several layers. Approximately 20-30% of the wastage happens in the last mile, between wholesale traders, and retail mom-and-pop stores. Is there something we can do about food wastage?
This was the problem statement I attempted to solve as a first engineering hire at a startup. Our customers were 12.8 million retail owners that deal in FMCG (Fast-moving consumer goods, such as food grains, tooth paste, etc.). The goal was to develop a platform for retail traders (mom and pop shop owners / small and medium business owners) to buy FMCG products from wholesale traders using an Android app.
We were attacking a deeply entrenched business practice to help solve a societal goal. For a section of the population which is not very well versed with smartphones and technology, the user experience had to be designed from the ground up to be multi-lingual, fungible, unstructured, and relevant. In this talk, I cover how we went about iterating the solution from a simple SMS based system to a full fledged app backed by micro-services. Having a micro-service architecture provided us the agility to experiment and iterate quickly, and we were able to push out changes much faster, and help solve wastage problems even sooner.
I will discuss the several problems we faced in this segment with regards to unstructured data, and how our data models had to adapt. We used cloud services extensively, so I will also cover how different pieces came together in a cogent form to build better experience for our customers.

After having worked in bigger companies on software projects that scale to millions of devices, this was a unique challenge for me, and something I am very proud of. I would like to share my experience in building empathetic software for the masses.

Agenda:

4:55 pm - 5:00 pm Arrival and socializing

Deep Embeddings and Section Fusion for Music Segmentation

Please register using the zoom link to get a reminder:

https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_DfwFTpQuTp2JizrqO1Co1Q

Music segmentation algorithms identify the structure of a music recording by automatically dividing it into sections and determining which sections repeat and when.

In this talk I give an overview of this music information retrieval problem and present a novel music segmentation method that leverages deep audio embeddings learned via other tasks.

This approach builds on an existing segmentation algorithm replacing manually engineered features with deep embeddings learned through audio classification problems where data are abundant. Additionally, I present a novel section fusion algorithm that leverages the segmentation with multiple hierarchical levels to consolidate short segments at each level in a way that is consistent with the segmentations at lower levels.

Through a series of experiments and audio examples I show that this method yields state-of-the-art results in most metrics and most popular publicly available datasets.

Agenda:

11:45 am - 11:55 am Arrival, socializing and Opening
11:55 am - 1:00 pm Oriol Nieto, "Deep Embeddings and Section Fusion for Music Segmentation"
1:00 pm - 1:10 pm Q&A
