Will the “programmable era” of computers be replaced by Cognitive Computing systems which can learn from interactions and reason through dynamic experience just like humans? With rapidly increasing volumes of Big Data, there is a compelling need for smarter machines to organize data faster, make better sense of it, discover insights, then learn, adapt, and improve over time without direct programming. This paper is sponsored by: Cognitive Scale.

In most applications we use today, data is retrieved by the source code of the application and is then used to make decisions. The application is ultimately affected by the data, but source code determines how the application performs, how it does its work and how the data is used. Today, in a world of AI and machine learning, data has a new role – becoming essentially the source code for machine-driven insight. With AI and machine learning, the data is the core of what fuels the algorithm and drives results. Without a significant quantity of good quality data related to the problem, it’s impossible to create a useful model. Download this Whitepaper to learn why the process of identifying biases present in the data is an essential step towards debugging the data that underlies machine learning predictions and improves data quality.

This paper argues a case for the use of coarse grained reconfigurable array (CGRA) architectures for the efficient acceleration of the data flow computations used in deep neural network training and inferencing. The paper discusses the problems with other parallel acceleration systems such as massively parallel processor arrays (MPPAs) and heterogeneous systems based on CUDA and OpenCL, and proposes that CGRAs with autonomous computing features deliver improved performance and computational efficiency. The machine learning compute appliance that Wave Computing is developing executes data flow graphs using multiple clock-less, CGRA-based System on Chips (SoCs) each containing 16,000 processing elements (PEs). This paper describes the tools needed for efficient compilation of data flow graphs to the CGRA architecture, and outlines Wave Computing’s WaveFlow software (SW) framework for the online mapping of models from popular workflows like Tensorflow, MXNet and Caffe.

This paper examines whether blockchain distributed ledger technology could improve the management of trusted information, specifically considering data quality. Improvement was determined by considering the impact of a distributed ledger as an authoritative source in TD Bank Group's Enterprise Data Quality Management Process versus the use of standard authoritative sources such as databases and files. Distributed ledger technology is not expected, or proven, to result in a change in the Data Quality Management process. Our analysis focused on execution advantages possible due to distributed ledger properties that make it an attractive resource for data quality management (DQM).

The Age of Information and the associated growth of the World Wide Web has brought with it a new problem: how to actually make sense of all the information available. The overarching goal of the Semantic Web is to change that. Semantic Web technologies accomplish this goal by providing a universal framework to describe and link data so that it can be better understood and searched holistically, allowing both people and computers to see and discover relationships in the data. Today, organizations are leveraging the power of the Semantic Web to aggregate and link disparate data, improve search navigation, provide holistic search and discovery, dynamically publish content, and complete ETL processes faster. Read this white paper to gain insight into why Semantics is important, understand how Semantics works, and see examples of Semantics in practice.

The age of Big Data is upon us. Storage costs are going down, and data analytics is becoming more capable and more user-friendly. Even your auto mechanic will be storing a petabyte of data soon. Big Data will give businesses new insights and help improve operations. With these new tools come questions about how to use them. But your mechanic knows more about fixing a transmission than developing a Hadoop cluster, and similar concerns hold true for larger enterprises. Businesses everywhere are looking for guidance.

Spreadsheets are a mainstay in almost every organization. They are a great way to calculate and manipulate numeric data to make decisions. Unfortunately, as organizations grow, so does the data, and relying on spreadsheet-based tools like Excel for heavy data preparation, blending and analysis can be cumbersome and unreliable. Alteryx, Inc. is a leader in self-service data analytics and provides analysts with the ability to easily prep, blend, and analyze all data using a repeatable workflow, then deploy and share analytics at scale for deeper insights in hours, not weeks. This paper highlights how transitioning from a spreadsheet-based environment to an Alteryx workflow approach can help analyst better understand their data, improve consistency, and operationalize analytics through a flexible deployment and consumption environment.

Organizations maintain data-based assets in hopes of successfully employing them in support of strategy. In an attempt to provide valued products and/or services, a customer relationship management (CRM) strategy should attempt to improve what is known about the wants and needs of existing customers. An organization may desire to transfer its inventory to its suppliers and to only play the role of transaction broker. A third strategy might be to use data to obtain significant efficiencies from productions/operations, ensuring a low cost advantage.

David Loshin reexamines the way we ingest, manage, consume, and transform data into actionable information and intelligence. Read how this industry expert makes the case for data governance with an unconventional business-first focus. The conventional wisdom on data governance proposes hierarchies, operating models, and processes for data policy definition and implementation. Unfortunately, poorly-designed and minimally-planned data governance processes are ineffective because they are bureaucratic and overwhelming. This is especially true when processes are imposed by fiat, take a long time, and don't result in any short-term improvement in information value. But proper data governance is a critical success factor for master data management! In this paper, we examine the motivations for coupling data governance with master data management and consider how to evolve data policies and processes to position master data management for success.
