I am attending the IBM Insight 2014 conference this year, along with many(!) other big data analytics luminaries, including Jake Porway (@jakeporway, of Data Kind), James Kobielus (@jameskobielus, the IBM Big Data Evangelist — I love that title!), Carla Gentry (@data_nerd, of Analytical Solution), Lillian Pierson (@BigDataGal, data journalist and author of the new book “Data Science for Dummies“), and thousands (maybe millions) more!
There are many new developments happening in 2014 across the big data universe that will be discussed at #IBMinsight. These include cloud-based analytics, cognitive analytics, Big SQL, the Internet of Things, machine-to-machine analytics, real-time actionable insights from data, content-based customer experience management, and predictive everything (e.g., customer intelligence; manufacturing; biomedical conditions; etc.). This is the place to be right now in order to learn about these rapidly evolving advancements.
For the twitter crowd, you can follow and jump into one of the Insight Tweet Chats from anywhere in the world. For example, join the discussion on Sunday October 26 at 11:00pm (New York time): https://www.crowdchat.net/IBMInsight
Even if you cannot be in Las Vegas(**) for this great event (perhaps “The 2014 World Series of Big Data”), you can still watch the presentations online and learn all about the latest Big Data Analytics and Data Science insights via “Insight GO“. The IBM InsightGo site describes it like this:
InsightGO is IBM’s interactive digital platform, streaming live broadcasts straight to your laptop or mobile device. It’s the next best thing to being in Vegas.
InsightGO is specially designed for both offsite and onsite attendees and features:
InsightGO will be hosted by writer, gamer and video star Veronica Belmont.
InsightGO registration is complimentary.
(**) What happens in Vegas stays in my Twitter timeline!
