BIG DATA WITH MAX WELLING: THE CHALLENGES


The challenges

Max Welling, Research chair in Machine Learning at the University of Amsterdam and VP technologies Qualcomm Netherlands, talks about Gdpr, augmented reality, wearables, interactive chatbots and the best skills to learn for a student.

Currently, major companies are investing in AI to handle difficult customers in the future. Google's most recent development analyzes language and converts speech into text. The platform can identify angry customers through their language and respond appropriately. :)

The utilization of Big Data also faces challenges in the Education industry. From a technical point of view, a major challenge in the education industry is to incorporate big data from different sources and vendors and to utilize it on platforms that were not designed for the varying data. From a practical point of view, staff and institutions have to learn the new data management and analysis tools.

Large and small companies have cyber-threats within and outside of their control such as data breaches, theft of company secrets, spying, attacks on computer networks, and damage to critical systems. Many companies are considering the challenges of cybersecurity and looking to new business applications such as cloud computing to secure data. However, cloud computing has enormous security and privacy risks relating to dependence on untrustworthy or unevaluated third parties.

Quite often, big data adoption projects put security off till later stages. And, frankly speaking, this is not too much of a smart move. Big data technologies do evolve, but their security features are still neglected, since it’s hoped that security will be granted on the application level. And what do we get? Both times (with technology advancement and project implementation) big data security just gets cast aside.

Indeed, data collection creates issues we need to be aware of.  Whereas tracking might follow you in real-time, a variety of internet companies and services can collect your browsing data and share your computer or router MAC address with third-party advertisers and companies.  With this data companies you have no direct interaction with can build up a pretty good profile of your internet habits and web browsing.

Thanks to Big Data, every Web ad you will soon see on Facebook and across the Web will have been bid upon in real time by advertisers who will pay based upon your perceived value as a potential customer.

Absolutely agreed on fact that we should learn more coding langulages, but are all the people capable of doing that ? I mean, you should have certain skills, so that you can improve in that field ...

Here is one challenge of Big Data I find it difficult to wrap my head around.

Nobody is hiding the fact that big data isn’t 100% accurate. And all in all, it’s not that critical. But it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t at all control how reliable your data is. Not only can it contain wrong information, but also duplicate itself, as well as contain contradictions. And it’s unlikely that data of extremely inferior quality can bring any useful insights or shiny opportunities to your precision-demanding business tasks.

Lucas,  Here are a couple of in-depth guides to augmented reality: source 1, source 2.  

Nioh,

Augmented reality is the technology that expands our physical world, adding layers of digital information onto it. Unlike Virtual Reality (VR), AR does not create the whole artificial environments to replace real with a virtual one. AR appears in direct view of an existing environment and adds sounds, videos, graphics to it.  A view of the physical real-world environment with superimposed computer-generated images, thus changing the perception of reality, is the AR.

Many algorithms are developed by a whole team, sometimes this team is made up of 3 people, sometimes this team can be a whole company sector as in Google's search engine, what if when I develop a feature I write in depth documentation. and then you as a customer have access to it, this could be a solution.

I would have loved to see a more in-depth discussion of augmented reality.  It seems to be an important and interesting application area of AI.

Martin D. Hoffmann

We spend a huge amount of time doing all kinds of things on our cell phones.  Some people say that is why we should know exactly how they work. I happen to disagree.  It is a topic that will likely be discussed for years to come.

Wioleta Brzezinski

As far as I know GDPR is already in effect in Europe.  The one thing I was interested in but could not quite conclude from the presentation is whether it covers algorithms too.

Olena Matey

It is my belief that one day we will have robots we would be able to talk to the way we talk to other human beings.
