Business Impact From IoT? Just Add Data Science
Presenter: Sarah Aerni, Senior Data Scientist, Pivotal The Internet of Things (IoT) will forever change the way businesses interact with each other and their customers. In 2020, 25 billion connected “things” will be in use, reports Gartner. IDC predictions are even higher as analysts estimate IoT will grow from 15 billion devices in 2015 to 30 billion devices in 2020. With the adoption of these devices, effective leveraging of the torrent of data will be critical to driving the transformation of industries. Central to the fundamental shift will be the ability to pool data, and build models that drive real and significant actions. From smart sensors to connected hospitals, Sarah will use illustrative use cases to demonstrate the fundamental concepts required to drive true impact from these connected devices. She will cover which models are most appropriate for a variety of actions and outcomes, what considerations around data access and processing are critical, and which tools are available to accomplish your task at hand.
