UK Symposium on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining 2013, organised by BCS SGAI, the Specialist Group on Artificial Intelligence. Very flattered and almost intimidated to be invited to add an analyst's view to the speakers.
Here's the abstract;
"The emergence of in memory databases, notably for businesses the
announcement in January 2013 that HANA now underpins the SAP Business Suite
(and by the time of UKKDD 2013 expect Oracle to have offered something similar),
illustrates that data mining capabilities are moving from the ‘interesting, and
nice to have’ categories, to potential business differentiators. In this
presentation Mike will look at the potential adoption and benefits of in memory
databases, and describe why he believes that Data Scientist is going to be the
next big role within business information management."
Expect some challenging debate.
