Where It Begins; With
“Big Data” and Analytics
And Why We Care About
“It”

“BABY CRASHING”; WORKING TO SEE THE UNSEEN
University of Ontario Institute of Technology Research Project to monitor
premature infants in the ICU at Sick Children’s Hospital

With Data Acquired;
 Nosocomial Infection Prediction

Sources

On-the-fly stream computing
InfoSphere Streams

Files, TCP Sockets

 Monitoring heart rate variability with
other information to predict sepsis
 System was shown able to warn
of life threatening sepsis up to
24 hours earlier than
experienced ICU Nurses

“Data is the New Oil”
In its raw form, oil has little value.
Once processed and refined, it helps power the world.

Dr. Bernard Meyerson

Define “Big” As In
BIG DATA

Oil & Gas

Modern facilities have
more than 80,000
sensors in place, and
a single reservoir will
produce more than
15 petabytes of data
in its lifetime

Retail

Consumers post
500 million tweets
and 55 million
Facebook updates
each day

Healthcare

Each person will
generate 1 million GB
of health-related data
in their lifetime –
equivalent to about
300 million books

The price of not understanding can be extreme.

Welcome to the dawn of the Cognitive Era.

AI: Accessible Intelligence

Compassion

Intuition

Deep Learning
Discovery

Design + Machine
Human
Large-scale math

Value judgments

Common sense

Fact checking

Cognitive
systems
must learn
at scale,
reason with
purpose,
and interact
with humans
naturally.

THE COGNITIVE ERA




Man/Machine collaboration becomes the norm.
We store knowledge, not data.
Business transforms by intent vs. trial and error.
The digital divide disappears.
Government services define “Happy” versus
“Satisfied” as the new standard.
