Dear & Esteemed Colleagues,
This upcoming conference to be held in the most beautiful city of Singapore will explore research and dissemination of research findings from Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Cloud Computing, Data Mining and related fields/topics across the globe. Further, this conference on these emerging topics would also support and encourage inter-disciplinary research in different academic disciplines and try to forge clear linkage between academia and industry.
“Artificial intelligence will reach human levels by around 2029. Follow that out further to, say, 2045, we will have multiplied the intelligence, the human biological machine intelligence of our civilization a billion-fold.” – Ray Kurzweil
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is gradually getting into every walk of our life. Artificial Intelligence, undoubtedly, is pretty powerful. When we check our gmail or interacting with Amazon Echo, we intermingle with Artificial Intelligence, a very intelligent and smart technology this generation, of course, is enjoying and benefiting in a substantial manner. In education, for instance, AI has made deep in-roads and help students to learn even the most difficult aspects and lessons without much of a difficulty. Research on AI indicates that in the near future, a combination of AI and supporting mechanisms would help students to learn any subjects or topics sitting quite conveniently at home from any of part of the World. Again, it is helpful to for them to learn everything at their own convenience and suitability.
In business, AI helps in many ways. It is helpful in budgeting, financial analysis, market research, trend predictions/forecasting, role as helpdesk executive and answering customer calls/appointment fixing.
The simplest form of explanation about Big Data is that one collects data from both traditional and digital sources in order to identify trends, patterns and emerging paradigms, help us make sound decisions to drive growth and profitability in the long-run. In a nutshell, companies understand what their customers want and manufacture products and services perfectly in alignment with their preferences.
‘Data Science’ and the related technologies are passing through a revolutionary phase. More particularly, Big Data has greater impact on our life as this emerging tool is able to process massive amounts of data faster and help gain fresh insights just like an intelligent individual. This fast- emerging technological advancement is extremely helpful to know new things about our life and the way we do business. There is no field where big data has not made an impact which includes, agriculture, entrepreneurship, health care, stock markets, banking, insurance, transport, super markets, etc.,
Data Exploration is a technique used to understand the data available better and make use of it in a purposeful manner to improve our lives. It is helpful to generate new knowledge, validate them, build models and clearly identify the patterns emerging. Using Big Data, achieving this is quite possible, argue scientists. Research reports indicate that the data generated and stored by the industry keep doubling, almost every year. It further states that a mere 10% access to more data would increase their sales turnover, exponentially. By the year 2020, it is estimated that about 1.7 megabytes of data and information will be gathered for every human being living on this planet. So, companies are looking for ways and means to process these unstructured and complex data in order to boost their sales and profitability. This is all the more necessary in the current competitive global landscape. In a nutshell, data-driven innovation helps companies to make headway faster and achieve their goals. Also, AI helps us to live healthier, happier, more productive and extremely useful to the society.
The business needs, unquestionably, are changing, day by day. They need more and more focused and relevant information to make rational business decisions. However, for small businesses, it would be really difficult to invest massive funds on infrastructure to collect and store the required information and data. Here is the perfect solution for this important necessity. Clouds are very helpful to obtain data and the much-needed resources from sources outside to companies. Again, smaller companies cannot appoint a team of computer/data security experts and afford the costs involved. Also, ‘data theft’ could be yet another problem that they might face. On the other hand, if they resort to using clouds, better data availability, better security and lesser costs help them make use of the data in an optimal manner. Certainly, Clouds are changing the way our businesses are growing and one has to make use of its potential to full extent.
Clouds and Data Mining are inter-related and support each other. Data Mining is helpful in the process of extracting the relevant information from the clouds in order to ensure and improve high-quality information. It is interesting to note that integrating data mining techniques with Clouds helps users to extract the information according to one’s needs. Data Mining is helpful in searching trends, surfing data, mining emotions and understand social interactions. It has its applications in business, social interactions, games, media, music and health-care data, for instance.
Data mining along with other techniques is helpful in market analysis, fraud detection, customer service, and other manufacturing processes. It is a natural evolution of the advent of the information technology. The most interesting aspect of data mining is that one can discover a lot of previously unknown information, patterns and relationship present in these data. We can apply statistical models and other machine learning methods. It also helps in both quantitative and qualitative analysis and predictions in order to make rational business decisions.
Panel discussions and brain-storming sessions are always a part of our conferences and they have received a lot of appreciation from the delegates participating in our events from different parts of the world.
At the upcoming conference in Singapore, a Panel Discussion on Artificial Intelligence and Big Data will be organized for the benefit of delegates attending the event, from across the globe.
Topic: Ensuring Business Success using the Power of Data!
Of late, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Clouds and Data Mining have revolutionized the business world, today. The upcoming conference on these crucial topics aim at achieving the following objectives.
1. Offer a platform to experts in the field of AI, Big Data, Clouds, Datamining and Analytics to advance knowledge about these important and emerging topics and share their findings and knowledge with fellow academicians and experts who would gather at the conference from different parts of the world.
2. Promote, encourage and support scientific and research collaborations across different related disciplines.
3. Suggest ways and means to make use of AI, Big Data, Clouds, Data Mining and related technologies to make rational decisions in business in order to ensure business success and profitability, in the long run.
Kindly submit your research papers/abstracts/case studies/posters in any of the areas listed below. You may also participate at the conference as an ‘observer’ without presenting a paper.
