TDWI Conference, 5th-6th November 2018, Zürich, Switzerland

The future of Analytics and Innovation – an unknown land

In November I gave a talk at the TDWI conference in Zürich. Big corporations are typically very slow in innovating and usually don‘t manage to do any real research. Why is so difficult for them? The Analytics field seems predestined for innovation and research, but still very few companies are really able to use their data at their full potential. Many don‘t even really know what data they have, or how to use it and profit from it. Is it possible to change all that? It is not only possible, but a necessary step for big corporations to survive in the next years. Innovation and research are not solutions to isolated problems, but the way we will need to transform the way we work in the future to be successful in any market.

Erfahrungsbericht: Wenn Forschung auf produktive Umgebung trifft, Zürich, November 2018

Nach der Entwicklung von Text-Mining-Algorithmen zur Erkennung von Duplikaten beim Testen von Tickets stand Helsana vor einer echten Herausforderung. Wie integriert man die Technologie in eine heterogene Umgebung? Wie kann Künstliche Intelligenz mit vielen anderen Technologien gut funktionieren?
In diesem Vortrag  werde ich einen Überblick darüber geben, welche Herangehensweise sie ergriffen haben, um die technischen und organisatorischen Herausforderungen in einem forschungsbasierten Projekt zu bewältigen, und wie die Forschungszusammenarbeit mit Universitäten und Fachhochschulen uns geholfen hat, erfolgreich zu sein.

  • Wie unterscheidet sich ein forschungsbasiertes Projekt von einem klassischen
  • Wie Forschungskooperationen Unternehmen in KI-Projekten helfen können
  • Was ist die größte Herausforderung? Die Technologie oder die Unternehmenskultur?
