    BIWA and Spatial SIG Techcast: Introducing Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph

    Tuesday, July 21, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Oracle has recently released a new big data product. Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph offers a set of analytic services and data models that support Big Data workloads on Apache Hadoop and NoSQL database technologies. Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph includes two main components. A property graph database with 35 built-in graph analytics functions can discover relationships and generate recommendations and other graph patterns in big data. Spatial analysis functions and services can evaluate data based on how near or far something is to one another, or whether something falls within a boundary or region; they can also process and visualize very large geospatial map data sets and imagery. We will share an overview of the new features and use cases. Learn how developers and data scientists can manage their most challenging graph, spatial, and raster data processing in a single enterprise-class Big Data platform. 

    Featured Speaker: James Steiner, Vice President, Server Technologies, Oracle

    IOUG IoT SIG Webcast: Affective Computing-Driven Campaign and CRM Systems

    Thursday, August 6, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Emotions drive consumer actions and purchase decisions. Yet, surveys, sentimental analysis, and other available consumer research tools are not able to quantify consumers’ emotions -- how they really feel about their brand engagement.Consumers experience brands by developing feelings for those brands and emotional connections to them, and talking about those brands with other people. The problem, however, is that real-time analytics for return on engagement is difficult to obtain, and yet understanding how and why people engage with your brand is the linchpin to achieving success. 

    How can wearables and the Internet of Things help brands quantify consumer perceptions of brands and drive purchase decisions?Join this webinar to find how The Art of Human Emotions answers this question for brands.

    In his presentation, Scott will touch specifically on the Neuroscience, affective computing, AI/ machine learning Affection Emotion Sensing Platform (ESP).

    Featured Speaker: Scott Amyx, CEO of Amyx+McKinsey
