We’re excited to announce our participation in the upcoming 2018 Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. You can catch our BigDL demo at the Intel Capital Showcase Tent on Tuesday, February 27th and Wednesday, February 28th located outside of the main Fira Gran Via venue.
This year for MWC, machine learning and AI are being hyped, and with good reason: many of the solutions already enabled today seem to be drawn straight from science fiction and the potential for disruption and innovation seems almost boundless. AI is the key to managing, using and scaling the rich data sets enabled by connected technologies. As a technology and business tool still in its infancy, however, it brings along a complex web of issues and this theme aims to cut through that complexity.
In today’s insight-driven world, performing real-time analytics on data has become increasingly key for businesses across industries. In the IoT world, being able to run analytics as close to the source as possible has become a necessity in order to reduce the amount of data being transferred over the wire. Not only that, it’s also crucial if your goal is to provide quick feedback, even if limited, to the edge device (transportation vehicle, oil rig, mobile device, etc).
GigaSpaces Demo at MWC 2018
Date: February 27-28, 2018
Location: Intel Capital Showcase Tent (glass tent located next to Hotel Fira Congress Barcelona).
What we will demo: In our demo, we will review edge analytics, IoT and discuss how you can reduce the analytics gap. We will also showcase our solution with Intel BigDL for AI Deep Learning innovation and how to simplify artificial intelligence (AI) through an integration between GigaSpaces’ InsightEdge platform and Intel’s BigDL open source deep learning library for Apache Spark. The combined solution forms an enhanced insight platform based on Apache Spark; offering a distributed deep learning framework that empowers insight-driven organizations.
Adoption of AI innovations like deep learning is growing rapidly across industries such as financial services, healthcare, transportation, and retail; where GigaSpaces has a strong track record in delivering high-performance solutions. In addition, the company has expanded its analytics portfolio over the past year to incorporate full-stack analytics (SQL, streaming, machine learning) through Apache Spark. The BigDL and AI portfolio provide an infrastructure-optimized solution for deep learning workloads leveraging Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. Together the technologies fill a critical market gap by creating an intelligent insight platform that makes it easy to innovate on real-time advanced analytics applications with low risk and TCO.
MWC 2018 runs from February 26 to March 1. It is the most important mobile communications event in the world. Every year, numerous executive directors of telephone companies, producers, and suppliers from all over the world take part in this event. The estimated number of attendees at past editions of MWC is 50,000 – 60,000 people.
Every year, hundreds of businesses meet during the MWC to create new businesses, introduce the latest products and talk about the future of mobile communication. This event offers a unique opportunity to connect engineers, scientists, and investors of wireless systems and mobile applications with leading experts and executives in the communications sector.
