KEYNOTE: Responding to Climate Change through Geo Data

Humanity is faced with numerous ecological sustainability challenges at an unprecedented magnitude and scale with climate change being the most serious and pervasive globally. Simultaneously, spatially explicit data and information needed to effectively respond are being generated at an enormous rate, but too little of it is finding its way into day-to-day decision making. To bridge science and action, the Conservation Biology Institute pioneered Databasin.org to enable integration and collaboration of climate and other geo data. Through the power of geo data and mapping, this talk will highlight examples of how climate change and related data can be used to plan for change. Successfully addressing this need, which encourages broad participation, will lead to better health, greater wealth, and higher global security.

PANEL: From Climate Data To Technology Solutions

This panel looks at the intersection of climate data and technology development. There is no shortage of climate data from scientists, government agencies and private research organizations. The key is to choose the relevant data and figure out ways to create solutions from them that will help to minimize the impact of climate change. The panelists will discuss what types of data are a good fit for developing new technology and business models in sectors such as renewable energy generation, agriculture, energy efficiency and transportation. But having the right data alone isn't enough. The panelists will also talk about the challenges of making good use of the data and what new data will help accelerate the development and deployment of better solutions.

PANEL: Data Science and Algorithms-as-a-Service

If software is eating the world, algorithms are absorbing the world. Algorithms are at the core of data science and analytics, but are often obfuscated by the technologies built around them. Improving data science means more data, better algorithms, and better data scientists. Do we need more algorithms, how do we find the best algorithms for the job, and what is the maturity of the algorithms-as-a-service industry compared to analysis-as-a-service or data-as-a-service? Who is really innovating "making algorithms accessible"?

PANEL: Web Standards: Myths and Realities

While some web protocols and standards make the world wide web possible, other web and data standards are seen my innovators and hackers as the unrealistic expectations of a committee. History shows that effective standards arise from cooperative organizations, general grassroots hacker adoption, and large companies aiming to acquire market share for a technology. Where have web standards outpaced the market's willingness to adopt universal methods, and where is there true demand for the coordination of new web standards?

PANEL: Democratizing Data: A business, technology, and society problem

What does it really mean to 'democratize data'? There are many bottlenecks to making data more accessible including: opening up data sources, standardizing and tagging data for discovery, enabling "data science" and predictive analytics to turn data into action, or data visualization / analytics tools that help communicate the data. From a business perspective, does 'democratizing data' mean 'commoditizing data'? From a sociological perspective, how would our individual lives change if data were more accessible to any small business or consumer? What are the next big bottlenecks to democratizing data?

PANEL: Big Friendly Data: Making Big Data Accessible to Non-wizards

When it comes to Big Data, the technology may have out-paced the ability of mere mortals to adopt it. With a dozen Hadoop or NoSQL technologies, few if anyone is actually up to date on the benefits of present technologies. This has spurred a new wave innovation around Big Friendly Data technologies - technologies that make big data solutions more accessible to non-wizards. What big data solutions have been inaccessible for the past several years, and what are the use cases of how web startups or Fortune 5000's can benefit? If big data solutions were more accessible, what new markets would most benefit?
