O’Reilly Announces Keynote Speakers and Session Lineup for Strata Data Conference San Francisco 2019

February 26, 2019

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 26, 2019--O’Reilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, today announced the lineup of speakers presenting at its upcoming Strata Data Conference, taking place March 25-28, 2019 in San Francisco, CA at the Moscone Center.

This year’s conference will bring together cutting-edge science and new business fundamentals to help attendees build a solid foundation for their artificial intelligence (AI) strategies and machine learning initiatives. The event programming offers a deep dive into emerging data science techniques and technologies, including case studies, in-depth tutorials and best practices.

New sessions and tracks have been added by program chairs Doug Cutting (chief architect at Cloudera and founder of  Apache Hadoop ), Ben Lorica (chief data scientist, O’Reilly) and entrepreneur Alistair Croll to reflect the latest trends in the data field, including security, ubiquitous computing, collaboration, reproducibility, new interfaces, emerging architecture, building data teams and machine data.

Keynote speakers include:

O’Reilly will also host the Strata Business Summit, running in conjunction with the conference, from March 25-28. The four-day event provides attendees with the intelligence needed to build strategies and data-driven business models that deliver customer insight, drive efficiency and innovation in products and services, modernize architecture, reduce costs and lower risk.

“Organizations across the globe need to fully understand the opportunity that big data presents,” said Ben Lorica, O’Reilly chief data scientist and Strata Data San Francisco program chair. “Without a thorough understanding of the latest technologies and applications – and how best to apply them – it is easy to be left behind by the competition. Strata Data San Francisco brings together leading voices in the industry to help attendees better understand how to make data work for them.”

At this year’s conference, O’Reilly will present the full results of its “ Evolving Data Infrastructure ” survey, which explores the tools companies are using for their advanced analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects – and the best practices they have acquired along the way. The research found that more than half (58 percent) of today’s companies are either building or evaluating data science platforms – which are essential for companies that are keen on growing their data science teams and machine learning capabilities – while 85 percent of companies already have data infrastructure in the cloud.

Registration for the upcoming Strata Data Conference is now open and a limited number of media passes are available for qualified journalists and analysts. Follow @strataconf or #StrataData  on Twitter for the latest news and updates.
