Smart Cities Connect 2020: Resolving Big Data Challenges Key to Smart City Success

smart cities connect 2020: resolving big data challenges key to smart city success

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Cary Smart City Program Manager Terry Yates emphasized the importance of educating city personnel on available resources. When attempting to solve a problem, staffers may go searching for the latest new application without realizing the city already owns a solution. Furthermore, “we’ve worked out the data management and security” aspects of the solution, Yates said.Managers soon realize the benefits of integrating with the common platform as well, as data used to resolve their issues may complement city projects elsewhere.
“As soon as that data comes into your architecture, standardize it so it can be ingested into all of your platforms,” Yates said. Cary collects data with Dell Boomi and distributes data to users through Salesforce. The town stores documentation on all of its productions in a central location using Box.
In the case of stormwater, floods “don’t have municipal boundaries,” Yates said. The Triangle region shares data through Cary’s platform, which can then automate a response to conditions. Should floodwaters reach a certain height, the platform automatically alerts public works to close the road, for example. Yates likened the platform to a Fitbit for the region.
Raimundo emphasized the importance of avoiding data silos and educating departments and …

Is Snowflake Stock Overpriced? @themotleyfool #stocks $SNOW

is snowflake stock overpriced? @themotleyfool #stocks $snow

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Recent-IPO darling Snowflake (NYSE:SNOW) deserves its high valuation. The data-warehouse-as-a-service specialist has been growing revenue at a fast pace over the last several years, and it remains exposed to the long-term growth opportunities that cloud and data analytics represent.
But the company’s lofty valuation suggests the market expects phenomenal long-term performance. Does that mean that Snowflake’s stock overpriced, despite the company’s attractive potential?
Phenomenal growth in data storage and analysis
As enterprises have been digitizing their operations, they have been accumulating vast amounts of data. That trend isn’t likely to wane: Research outfit IDC estimates the amount of worldwide data will grow at a compound annual rate (CAGR) of 61% by 2025.
The good thing is companies can exploit that knowledge to make business decisions. However, until recently, analyzing such a growing amount of data required cumbersome processes, hardware, and software.

Thus, Snowflake leveraged cloud computing to simplify big data management and analysis. For instance, its platform doesn’t require data analysts to process and organize data before storing it for analysis. And its customers can use and scale resources on-demand from any of the major public cloud vendors, Amazon, Microsoft, and Alphabet’s Google. 
In addition, the company …

Big data, machine learning shed light on Asian reforestation successes

big data, machine learning shed light on asian reforestation successes

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Since carbon sequestration is such an important factor for mitigating climate change, it’s critical to understand the efficacy of reforestation efforts and develop solid estimates of forest carbon storage capacity. However, measuring forest properties can be difficult, especially in places that aren’t easily reachable.
Purdue University’s Jingjing Liang, an assistant professor of quantitative forest ecology and co-chair of the Forest Advanced Computing and Artificial Intelligence (FACAI) Laboratory in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources, led an international team to measure forest carbon capacity in northeast Asia. Their research, which blends remote sensing, field work and machine learning, offers the most up-to-date estimates of carbon capture potential in reclusive North Korea and details the benefits of reforestation efforts over the last two decades in China and South Korea.
“Because there is historically scant data from North Korea, people know little about how much carbon is stored in this region,” said Liang, whose findings were published in the journal Global Change Biology. “Based on the data we can collect from northeast China and South Korea, we used machine learning and big data analysis to estimate how much carbon is stored across the entire region. We …

Welcome to Insurance Covered! The podcast that looks at the inner workings of the insurance industry with the help of expert guests.
This episode we are joined by Brendan McGurk, who is a barrister at Monckton Chambers, and we will be looking at the big data and data profiling in relation to the insurance industry.
Brendan has recently released an award winning book ‘Data profiling and insurance law’ and we begin by discussing an overview of what the book covers. One aspect of this is looking at the way in which insurers will use big data and predictive analytics for the purpose of underwriting. Brendan explains that as insurers get more access and involvement in big data, they will be able to more accurately access and price risk. He goes on to explain that competitive advantage will be with the insurers that develop the best algorithms for assessing risks.
When looking at where insurers might get this kind of data Brendan explains the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) which is the vast web of devices connected to the internet. Brendan identifies three devices that contribute useful data for insurers; black boxes in cars, wearable technology ( …

CS: Let’s talk some more about churches and tech in the context of outreach. The big question I have is, were you surprised to find churches engaging in what we might consider predatory behavior? I think I gathered from the film that you find that a lot of pastors at these smaller churches don’t mean to be doing anything nefarious with people’s data, they don’t know how these apps are being used? But others are willing players in the use of microtargeting for political purposes.
Given my own background growing up with a music pastor for a dad and seeing how the sausage is made, when I see that churches are using third-party apps to target the sorts of people who tend to become adult converts—addicts, alcoholics, people with mental health issues, people going through divorce—it doesn’t surprise me at all. I think it’s quite insidious, and it’s an amazing use of technology, but I come from the kind of churches …
