MALMO

Big Data: Technological and Research Insights and Challenges
November 23, 2015 / 5:00 PM – Stora Varvsgatan 6
Data Science is an interdisciplinary field dealing with processes and systems in order to extract and discover knowledge
or insights from large volumes of data in various forms, structured or . . . unstructured.
Recently, several actors in the business, industrial and public sectors are starting to develop new approaches and technologies to deal with big data sets for better understanding large scale world problems. Health care, transportation, marketing, business decision making and energy efficiency are just some areas of application in which interesting big data techniques and solutions are emerging.
In this Think Tank, let us focus on the various aspects of data science in general and on real-time analytics in particular.
In the data science part, the discussion will cover some of the recent approaches
to solve Big Data related problems.
In the real-time analytics part, we will discuss current trends, including applications areas such as intelligent marketing and smart transportation to provide some new insights as well as to identify related research challenges.
As a specific case, we will briefly discuss the main ideas behind a recent research project proposal on Real-time analytics embedded solutions for improving various processes in the agricultural sector. These efforts are part of the Indian-Swedish collaboration program supported by Vinnova and the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.
Speaker
Dr. Juwel Rana
Applied Artificial Intelligence
November 24, 2015 / 5:30 AM – Stora Varvsgatan 6
Artificial Intelligence solutions have the potential to transform healthcare as we now it today. By 2030 the vision of us all manufacturing our own medicines with advanced printing methods in our home . . . with the optimal dosage is not far fetched. Artificial Intelligence solutions can be found in most industries today, but healthcare and life sciences have yet to adopt such technologies en masse. Applied Artificial Intelligence involves solutions of real-life problems with technologies such as machine learning, neural networks, genetic algorithms etc. The AI field itself is interdisciplinary and based on computer science, mathematics, psychology, linguistics, philosophy and neuroscience. Life Science and healthcare
in particular is centered around matters such as patient safety, evidence-based decision making, regulatory compliance, legal considerations, reimbursement, sensitive data, identify theft etc. In navigating this field the mathematical and technological comprehension of AI tools does not suffice. How can healtchare be transformed and what sacrifices may be made on the way? This presentation gives a brief introduction to Artificial Intelligence and ventures into the complexities of the healthcare and other parts of the Life Science.
The second part of the presentation is a case study of an authentic case Lytics worked with; detecting drowsiness in ECG data. In this case study we will discuss machine learning for time series data and describe the progress and events during the project. We will dwell on topics like feature extraction and also talk a bit about the nature of ECG signals.
This presentation requires no previous knowledge or experience of Applied Artificial Intelligence or Life Science. Its intended audiences are software engineers, clinicians or the general public interested in the combination of the two and what can be achieved with such solutions.
Speakers
Mattias Paulsson is Partner & CEO of Lytics (formerly Experlytics) in Malmö. He has served in international positions
in the medical device and ICT industries and spends the majority of his time at Lytics in crafting applications and solutions for their customers and business partners. He holds an M.Sc. in Business Administration from School of Economics and Management at Lund University and a B.Sc. in Sociology from Linnaeus University.
Jonas Aron Öman is a data scientist and analyst at Lytics where he develops machine learning solutions for problems in medicine and healthcare. Jonas has previously worked at Expertmaker and also teaches in Artificial Intelligence at Lund University. He holds an M.Sc. in Engineering Physics from Lund University where he specialized in statistical modeling.
Mikael Andreen is a data scientist and analyst at Lytics which means he is responsible for applying algorithms on data to gain insights. Mikael has a background in programming and signal processing. He has previously worked within the mobile phone industry in Malmö and Lund at companies such as Ericsson, Sony and Blackberry. He holds an M.Sc in Electronics from Lund University, majoring in signal processing and digital communications.
Code for Humanity Challenges & Ideation
November 24, 2015 / 5:30 PM – Stora Varvsgatan 6
Want to improve society by good design or considering joining Open Hack Dec 4?
Using technology to improve the world is no small cause. While there are numerous organisations who work with problems in . . . society they are not built in such a way that lends to cost effective and user centric designs. Sometimes they simply can’t afford this luxury since they are government funded or NPO’s (Non-Profit Organisations). This leads to large gaps in the services provided to the communities and citizens that need them most. Fortunately there are ways that civic engagement can allow everyone to contribute. Tech for good initiatives are launching in communities across the globe and the Code for Humanity Open Hack (http://openhack.io) is one such initiative.
During this workshop we will present solutions people are already building to address gaps in social services. We will also introduce user centric design and break up into ideation sessions to identify possible solutions to to specific groups of societies members. If you have never performed such workshops, no problem, guides will be present, just bring your creativity hat and let’s get the ideas rolling!
Graphs and Big Data
November 25, 2015 / 5:30 PM – Stora Varvsgatan 6
How do Graphs relate to Big Data? What is Big Data for Graphs? Just how big is Big? And how well do current database
systems scale to handling Big Graphs?
In this session we will take a closer look at . . . these questions. We will also talk about more practical and directly applicable questions, such as how to actually make sense of big data, and reasons for why you would want to manage big graphs.
Speaker: Tobias Lindaaker
Tobias has been working with Neo4j for the past 8 years, and has both
an intimate understanding of the graph database space, as well as deep insight into how Neo4j relates to Big Graphs.

Code for Humanity Open Hack Technical Training
November 26, 2015 / 5:30 PM – Stora Varvsgatan 6
Wanna code and maybe joining Open Hack Dec 4?
There are many great open source projects to join that are building software for causes who wouldn’t otherwise have access to such great services. Join . . . this workshop to learn how to use a few to build solutions fast, like in 48 hours :-) We aim to get you ready for Open Hack, check it out here: http://openhack.io
During the workshop we will introduce the Open by Design Bluemix platform and introduce the key open source projects it is built on: OpenStack, Docker, and Cloud Foundry. As a result of this design one can run nearly any open source project in the cloud and also leverage some amazing services from companies like Twillio, SendGrid, PitneyBauer, Twitter. There are also numerous open source based services, including Apache Spark, Apache Kafka, NodeRed, MQTT, Node.js. We’ll also introduce IBM Watson and
how this can help provide better insight quickly to help decision makers in the field. Check out here for some good how-to’s and come get some hands-on :
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/cloud/bluemix/services.html
We will also teach you about the Ushahidi project and other interesting open source projects that can potentially be leveraged for your solution in the Open Hack on December 4-6. http://www.ushahidi.com

Iteration through Build-Measure-Learn
“Step one is to have a strong vision. You must then test that vision against reality, and then decide whether to pivot or persevere.” – Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup
Start with a Minimum Viable Product
A Minimum Viable Product has just those features that allow the product to be deployed, and no more.
Ideas are nothing without execution
And the only way to achieve great execution is to talk about your ideas and get feedback along the way.
Just do it!
There is always a way. The only thing stopping you is your own mind.
