PRO WORKSHOP (AI): Swifty TensorFlow
In this talk, we look at “Why Swift for TensorFlow?”. The choice was guided by the goals of the project, which imposed specific technical requirements which we cover in this talk. A cornerstone of the design is an algorithm that is called Graph Program Extraction, which allows you to write in an eager execution-style programming model while retaining all of the benefits of graphs. The design also includes support for advanced automatic differentiation built directly into Swift. We review the needed prerequisite concepts so that this talk is accessible to all technical levels.

PRO WORKSHOP (API): The Next Challenge for API Management - Real-Time on the Edge
Today, technology and business teams are focused on information management for distributed data sources. Organizations face the challenge of harnessing constantly expanding and evolving data sources and the complex ecosystem in which they reside. As event-based applications and real-time systems become fundamental to new business opportunities, there is a clear need yet to be addressed: Real-Time API Management.

Traditional API Management tools provide ways to help unify and normalize distributed data sources, but these tools are fundamentally built around polling-based resources (e.g. REST and SOAP) – an approach that is incompatible with the requirements for processing live data. In the diverse ecosystems of today’s digital world, architectures can include any combination of polling-based, event-based, and bespoke infrastructures – often with perplexing integration requirements. Businesses require a platform that delivers the operational benefits of API Management and is designed to handle the unique interactions of real-time.

Real-Time API Management can manage, optimize, secure, and distribute live data, no matter the origin – providing intelligence on the network edge and a single source of truth for an organization’s information. This presentation will address the technological challenges businesses face and present a variety of industry use cases in financial services, eGaming, transportation, and IoT.

PRO WORKSHOP (API): Steel Thread Approach to Building Large Scale Architectures
This talk describes the journey of building a brand new, platform-first, microservices architecture at Box. Building a new architectural stack presents a bunch of challenges with design choices, technology selection, and balancing simplicity with richness of feature offerings. A 'steel thread' to designing architectures helps identify the critical components of the stack and then gradually roll out incremental features - all while the engine is still running. The challenges really snowball when you on-board live traffic with high scale, high throughput and low latency requirements. The talk aims to share a structure on how to approach building large scale microservices architectures, challenges faced while on-boarding live traffic and finally lessons learnt while doing it.

PRO WORKSHOP (MICROSERVICES): The Real Value of Microservices
For older software developers new trends are often nothing but "old wine in new bottles." That's exactly what I thought when I heard about microservices for the first time. Through my work as a software renovator, though, I realized that many aspects of microservice architectures have a huge impact on value retention and can greatly simplify future migrations. The first part of the talk will explain how microservice architectures are based on some very old principles, and will discuss the advantages they bring for the life cycle of an application. In the second part, I will discuss my experience in a recent customer project and how it demonstrates how to move from a monolithic legacy application to a modern, sustainable microservice architecture.

PRO WORKSHOP (AI): Taming the BERT: Transfer Learning for NLP
Transfer learning enables using pretrained deep neural networks trained on various large datasets and adapt them for various tasks. Fine-tuning such pre-trained models in computer vision has been a far more common practice than training from scratch. In NLP, however, due to the lack of models pretrained on large corpus, the most common transfer learning technique had been fine-tuning pretrained word embeddings. These embeddings are used as the first layer of the model on the new dataset, and still require training from scratch with large amounts of labeled data to obtain good performance. Finally in 2018, several pretrained language models (ULMFiT, OpenAI GPT and BERT) emerged.These models are trained on very large corpus, and enable robust transfer learning for fine-tuning many NLP tasks with little labeled data. In this talk we'll learn the architecture of these pretrained language models. In particular, we'll share how different transfer learning techniques have been used with BERT to solve various downstream tasks in the NLP community.

PRO WORKSHOP (AI): High Performance Data Analytics/Machine Learning Reference Stack Delivering 8x Faster Results
The amount of data produced in every minute makes it challenging to store, manage, utilize, and analyze it faster. Companies like Intel are building hardware accelerators to boost software application performance significantly. However, not many big data applications are really known them or optimizing to use it. We created an Opensource DARS (Data Analytics Reference Stack) (https://clearlinux.org/stacks/data-analytics-stack-v1) based on open source Clear Linux, and well utilizes the hardware accelerated libraries in the big data service stack.
The DARS comprises of Apache Spark, Apache Hadoop, OpenJDK and utilizes both MKL, OpenBLAS math libraries all built on ClearLinux and complete stack includes ClearLinux OS along with containerized environment images such as Docker images. This end-end optimized stack delivers up to 8x performance gain in machine learning workloads. We will also cover how to use the optimized stack, replicate on your production environments and present the performance results.

PRO WORKSHOP (API): Your APIs May Be Leaking Data, Learn How to Stop It
APIs are the visible backbone of any application; it’s where all the data and requests get processed. As a result, the API layer exposes a very large surface area for attacks - as evident in the latest hacks against Google+, Facebook and many others. Hackers are now targeting API-specific vulnerabilities and most companies do not even know that their APIs are leaking data. While technical security vulnerabilities, like SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS), are the most widely known flaws stemming from coding errors, the vast majority of API attacks exploit access control and business logic vulnerabilities that cannot be detected with SAST and DAST vulnerability scanning solutions. In this session, you will learn about the best practices to identify, track and fix role-based and attribute-based access control (RBAC & ABAC) vulnerabilities that allow users to accumulate excess permissions granting them unauthorized access to otherwise secure API endpoints and resources. You will also learn about business logic flaws that allow hackers to manipulate legitimate API calls to steal data and interfere with business functions. Such vulnerabilities have contributed to the vast majority of API attacks (including Google+, Facebook, Citi and T-Mobile) and could cost companies extremely high fines for breaching GDPR and other regulatory guidelines.

PRO WORKSHOP (API): Standing on the Shoulders of APIs
  • An API-first approach assumes the design and development of an application programming interface (API) comes before the implementation. Your team begins by creating an interface for their application. After the API is developed, the team relies on this interface to build the rest of the application. By introducing new features as an independent service accessed by API, the rest of the app can be stitched together, along with any other future apps. 
  • Throughout an API’s entire lifecycle, different stakeholders have unique requirements. It’s not just developers who are collaborating on APIs within your organization. In a world where speed-to-market holds a premium, learn how to harness the power of your team to build better APIs within your own organization.

PRO WORKSHOP (MICROSERVICES): Edge-Native Microservices
Edge computing is on the rise, the need to move logic closer to the source of data and process data inline, without the need to depend solely on cloud resources. While vastly different from a computing perspective, some of the same principles apply when looking to develop edge-native microservices, however, edge computing requires a smaller technical footprint, smaller than most existing frameworks and technologies can offer. Existing technologies cannot be retrofitted and expected to perform efficiently at the edge. We’ll explore how edge-native microservices can be built using Project Flogo, a lightweight, open source framework built from the ground up with size and performance in mind. We’ll explore the modern application architecture and how multi-cloud, edge and serverless compute is the new normal and why you need open technologies to avoid vendor lock-in.Lastly, we’ll tie together the need for lightweight, performance frameworks for the next wave of cloud computing -- serverless architectures and the transition from microservices to functions, and how a smaller unit of work can become more efficient both in terms of economics and development speed.

PRO WORKSHOP (AI): Explaining Black Box Models
Complex machine learning models are frequently termed “black boxes”. While these models deliver highly accurate predictions, they frequently provide no insight into the factors driving the predictions. In turn, this can make it problematic to ensure that the model’s predictions are actionable. For instance, in churn prediction, explaining why the customer is predicted to churn is as important as the prediction itself, as it enables action to be taken to address highlighted issues and prevent the churn.In recent years, as operationalized ML solutions become ever more complex and prevalent in every facet of life, the interpretability of models has become a critical consideration. In the last couple of years, an increasing number of papers and open source software libraries have appeared to help data scientists explain their predictions. In this presentation, we discuss recent approaches to interpreting the results from complex machine learning models, including the well-known LIME package. We present best practices for their use and deployment and provide cautionary examples and caveats associated with leveraging these techniques.

PRO WORKSHOP (AI): Graph Deep Learning for Entity Scoring in eCommerce Fraud Prediction
Recent years, inspired by the huge success of convolutional networks in Computer Vision, Graph Convolutional Networks has emerged and attracted great attention for its potentials in graph-based data world, such as social networks, recommendation, biological graphs and traffic prediction. In this talk, we present our innovation on fraud prediction of using Graph Convolutional Networks (GCNs) in Walmart eCommerce system where it predicts risk scores for entities (e.g. customer, device) in real time on large-scale transaction-based graphs. We demystify how it smartly leverages graph topology via adjacency matrix and learn the weight matrices to nonlinearly propagate information across multi-hop graphs, especially on graphs condensed of fraudulent transactions. We also describe how the semi-supervised classification GCNs is trained with a weighted softmax loss function on partially labeled graph snapshots. By comparing with models that do not rely on graph structures, we show the noticeable performance lift of GCNs in various aspects. To demonstrate how well it works, we evaluate the prediction results through real-world graph examples at WalmartLabs. At the end, we show the significant business/engineering value our entity scores can bring to the company and point out multiple directions in which the methodologies can be generalized and further improved.

PRO WORKSHOP (AI): Why Learn Tens of Thousands of Computer Vision Models?
AI technology can deliver huge value, but the perception is this value is primarily achievable only by those with huge training datasets and the ability to hire a team of highly skilled AI scientists and engineers. In this talk I will describe the impact of empowering developers by 1. training useful models with smaller datasets and 2. making computer vision model training a service as well as open source. I will share the lessons learned from building a public cloud API in which users around the world trained tens of thousands of different vision models, in terms of both the development process and the user experience. I will also describe the impact of a new open source toolkit called "Learning with Less Labels" which brings multiple assets directly from research papers into developers' hands to enable effective learning from hundreds of images, instead of millions.The goal is making computer vision work for every developer. Where will the path lead when we are no longer in an ImageNet-1K monoculture?

PRO FEATURED SESSION (API): How to Craft APIs that Developers Love
Designing APIs that will enable developers to be truly inventive and business to expand into new contexts and experiences is a technical challenge. This talk is on public API design and governance process. It is meant for technical people involved in creating interfaces that empower 3rd party developers. After dealing with legacy APIs for years, we went on a journey to revamp our API program. Challenges that we faced are typical for all public API providers. The audience will learn about the overall governance process with a focus on design, compliance with standards, relying on patterns and OpenAPI specification, and significance of accurate terminology and non-ambiguous use of nouns and verbs. Following consumer-centric approach, providing predictable and understandable names across capabilities, and trying not to reinvent the wheel on every new API is common to any API development. API standards and design process are true elements of success.

PRO WORKSHOP (AI): How Three Different Enterprises Overcame the Challenges to Adopting AI and Starting Saving Money
I started a machine learning startup in early 2018, by September we were acquired by a market leader in delivering AI to the enterprise. Part of the reason we were acquired after only 9 months was because we made it very simple for enterprises to solve their everyday problems with machine learning using Docker containers and a first-rate developer experience.

AI isn’t about replacing humans, it is about augmenting their work. These are my three example use cases companies used our machine learning products to solve:
1) A major clothing brand wanted to automate the tagging of product attributes because doing so with humans was time-consuming and often resulted in many errors in the data.
2) A kiosk manufacturer wanted to add face recognition to their kiosks so that customers could login to take advantage of customer loyalty programs and check out faster.
3) A major broadcasting technology company wanted to allow users to be able to search through massive amounts of video content by who or what is in the content, saving content managers time and letting them focus on getting their media distributed.

I will break down and discuss each use case and how the technology helped solve them, how the common hurdles to adopting AI were overcome, how these companies came to on board our technology so quickly, and how others can jump in and start saving time and money with machine learning.

Microservices World -- Expo Discovery Stage

OPEN TALK (API): The Dev, Sec and Ops of API Security
The enterprise use of APIs is growing exponentially. Companies face a difficult choice. They must shift towards a software-based, digital approach to service and product delivery – or get left behind. Agile development, business pressure and the complexity of API security have made security teams life very complicated. And to make matters more complicated, the adoption of microservices architectures has multiplied the number of API endpoints that you have to protect. 

Downside: The more APIs, the higher the security risk!

API security flaws are injected at many different levels of the API lifecycle: in requirements, development, deployment and monitoring. It is proven that detecting and fixing vulnerabilities during production or post-release time is up to 30 times more difficult than earlier in the API lifecycle. Security should be easy to considered at requirements phase, applied during development by attaching pre-defined policies to APIs and ensuring that security tests are performed as part of the continuous delivery of the APIs.

Upside: We’ll prep you with all the knowledge and tools you need to implement an automated, end-to-end API Security process that will get your dev, sec and ops teams speaking the same language.

In this presentation you will learn:
Security risks at each stage of the API lifecycle, and how to mitigate them.
How to implement an end-to-end automated API security model that development, security and operations teams will love.
How to think positive! Why a positive security model works.

PRO WORKSHOP (API): API Security: When Failure Looks like Success
In the last decade, APIs have become fundamental to our teams, partners, and customers. While we’d like to believe it all happened as a carefully executed plan, let’s be honest… there’s as much luck as foresight in the mix. Luckily, success drives success so we’ve seen things explode in great ways. Unfortunately, that very success has cost us too.APIs are becoming a consistent and devastating attack vector for applications that store everything from financial records to passport information to what you’re looking for in a date. In this session, we’ll reconsider some our earliest assumptions and lay out some strategies for bringing our APIs out of the shadows and protecting ourselves, our partners, and our customers.

PRO WORKSHOP (MICROSERVICES): Scaling Service Mesh to an Enterprise Microservices Ecosystem
In the summer of 2018, after exponential growth in our microservices ecosystem, our deepening service call graph was causing increasing latency overhead. We took a hard look in the mirror and realized we were approaching the end of the runway for our Hub and Spoke API Gateway model. We began a journey to migrate our 600+ microservices from our API Gateway to a distributed Service Mesh running on Kubernetes. Along the way, we discovered that building an enterprise-wide Service Mesh spanning discrete network segments comes with a host of challenges. In making a platform provide end-to-end encryption, we defined a pattern for federated workload identities and learned to manage a federated set of mesh control planes. In this talk, we will share these learnings and an open-source technology that made it all possible - Admiral.

PRO FEATURED SESSION (API): Great API Design Takes a Village
As someone once said, “the only constant in the API world is change.” Whether you’re designing, building, testing, or using an API, things will change. Great API design is essential, but more critical to success is effective, ongoing collaboration. During API . design and development, it is nearly impossible for a designer to anticipate all of the possible needs, issues, and potential blockers alone. Having the tools necessary for teams to develop in parallel, communicate with each other, and maintain a single source of truth can make the difference between API failure and success. This talk will break down the main components of successful collaboration in API design and development, including examples of tooling, standards, and actual use cases. He will address how you can create better team workflows, track feedback, maintain multiple API versions, and effectively develop in parallel so that your API development team remains effective.

OPEN TALK (API): How Low-Tech Hackers Hack Your APIs in 15 Min or Less
It is very hard, if not impossible, to secure something you don’t know exist. While security professionals spend countless hours on complex yet interesting issues that *may* be exploitable in the future, basic attacks are occurring every day with little to reviews. For example, a “dated trend” by effective yet lazy hackers is to search for API unknown by security teams, coined “Shadow APIs”, connect to these APIs, and extract data. While SQL Injection used to be the hack of choice, as a few simple SQL commands would either mean “pay dirt” or “move on to the next target”, the same can be said for Shadow API….Find, Connect, Extract. This talk will discuss one of many methods that are used in the wild to target Shadow APIs and export large volumes of data with a few clicks of a button (lines of code in python code :). Attendees will learn about a very basic yet non-so-obvious problem in securing data, and how hackers are using creative methods to steal large volumes of data.

PRO SESSION (API): A Journey of Shipping Enterprise Grade, High Transaction Rate, Resilient APIs
This presentation takes you through the Journey of API Lifecycle, covering the following topics- Evolution, Backward Compatibility, Monitoring and Transformation of APIs. It comes from a first hand experience of building an API stack that a multi billion dollar enterprise bets on.APIs built around your company's core business functionality will last forever. Customers who have integrated with the legacy XML / SOAP APIs usually do not invest in new integration unless they want new features. On the other hand, you as an API Producer need to stay on top of technology to attract and ease the new developer integration. You need to keep up with latest technology in all areas including error handling, security, and API protocols such as Restful and JSON. You may have to maintain different flavors of the APIs to keep both existing and new customers happy. But at the same time you have to keep in mind the cost of maintenance of the multiple flavor APIs and need to prevent duplicate code by building the protocol/security layer on top of the common code. This presentation talks about the evolution of the APIs with examples of supporting multiple protocol APIs.When your company's core business APIs are integrated by large and critical customer base, it is crucial to be sensitive and backward compatible to customer's integration as the new features get rolled out. This talk covers in detail, the approach towards backward compatibility of an API with respect to changes to request, changes to response and changes to validation rules / business logic. In this presentation we will extensively dive into the different backward compatibility strategy that can be applied to REST / JSON , SOAP and plain XML APIs and examine the differences. When your APIs are serving around half a billion transactions per day, providing a gateway to your company's core business, it is very critical to extensively monitor your APIs and be proactive about all production issues. You can not lose your APIs even for a fraction of a minute. This talk covers the challenges of monitoring and how you can develop a robust monitoring approach for the APIS. We will also dive into the journey of transformation of API development into the world of agile, DevOps and containerization - all being seamless in continuing to serve millions of customer transactions.

According to Gartner, by 2022, API abuses will be the most-frequent attack vector resulting in data breaches. You hear about large organizations in the news affected by these attacks every day. The question on everyone's mind is how do we prepare for a future with a zero trust security model? How do I balance my conservative security posture with the rising need to innovate and move fast? In this session, we will explore the problem along with the best practices on securing your organizations APIs irrespective of where they are deployed.

KEYNOTE (AI): Can an AI Assistant Be as Important as the Web or as Mobile?
AI assistants are used billions of times each week and have been baked into more than a billion consumer devices. People talk to them to accomplish functions like playing songs, sending text messages, setting timers, and more.

However, while these assistants are useful, they’re not yet a global paradigm like the web or mobile, which impact every connected user and every connected business. John Alioto, examines what it might take for an assistant to make the leap to global paradigm and then illustrates the unique architecture and approach being taken by Samsung’s Bixby assistant with the goal of doing just that.

PRO WORKSHOP (AI): Less (Data) Is More: Efficient Machine Learning for Enterprises
In recent years, a perfect storm of big datasets and advances in both the theory and practice of neural networks paved the way for many revolutionary applications and a wide-spread optimism about ‚Artificial Intelligence and machine learning. In particular, deep learning achieved tremendous adoption thanks to outstanding performances in a variety of tasks, especially in single prediction‚ problems: classifying images, predicting new values in highly non-linear series, etc. The not-so-hidden truth, however, is that behind any successful ML enterprise big data project, there are a lot of small data challenges that need to be solved: data need to be cleaned and structured in a context where supervised learning is next to impossible (organizations do not have thousands of examples to work with and solutions often involve a chain of inferences). In many cases, we cannot ‚ML-our-way‚ out of ML pipeline problems - so we are often stuck with humans, which unfortunately are costly and slow. The good news is that we all intimately know physical systems that are fairly efficient under that constraint, i.e. humans. We learn concepts with very few examples and then use simpler concepts to acquire more complex ones. We shall present a series of use cases from our experience working with large enterprises on how a different approach to learning and inference can bring superior results with less data, drastically reducing the time to ROI. In particular, we will present cognitively-inspired examples on lexical acquisition and program generation through probabilistic programming, showing how motivated priors can help navigate the space of hypothesis efficiently and produce a virtuous human-machine communication loop.

PRO FEATURED WORKSHOP: Taming the Rising Complexity of Event-Driven APIs
Driven by consumer expectations and the proliferation of IoT, by 2023 30% of all the world’s data will be consumed in real time - that’s 1.5 times the entire amount of data consumed today. Corresponding to this, by 2020, 50% of APIs will be event-driven.

In this talk, I explore the often unforeseen complexities involved in both publishing and consuming event-driven APIs as adoption increases. Whilst initiatives like AsyncAPI are making significant progress in helping to define machine and human readable specifications, developers still need to think hard about which dimensions they want their event-driven APIs to deliver on in the future, before they dive in.

I will take you on a tour of different protocols that each address event-driven API challenges with varying proficiency, diving into, amongst others, scale, latency, quality of service, data integrity, interoperability, reliability and the pros and cons of push vs pull delivery. At the end of this talk I hope you will see that there is no silver bullet, but there are insights you can take from real-world problems we’ve seen first-hand, and apply that to the event-driven realtime APIs you are publishing or plan to publish soon.

OPEN TALK (AI): Enable AI to Drive Intelligent Customer Interactions and Reach Your Contact Center's Full Potential
With each new year, artificial intelligence (AI) creeps higher on enterprises’ list of priorities, thanks to the promise of many benefits such as automating processes and enhancing the customer experience with more intelligent interactions. Certainly, with AI, the types of digital transformation that seemed too far-fetched or futuristic just a few years ago are within reach today. It’s becoming clear that communications is at the core of business’ digital transformation, and programmable technology is the key. Programmability offers the flexibility and agility needed to enable the implementation of intelligent communications tools, customized to meet the individual needs of each business and their employees. To meet this growing need for tools that enable digital transformation, providers must innovate to offer enterprises unprecedented capabilities to customize their business communications applications. In this presentation, Bryan Stokes, VP, Product Management at Vonage, will discuss how enterprises with limited machine learning expertise can leverage simple, secure and flexible solutions to deploy intelligent solutions in their contact centers. He’ll demonstrate in real time how true programmability has the power to enhance UC and contact center applications, allowing enterprises to adapt to customer demands and generate new insights to better serve and delight customers, improving the overall customer journey. By enabling AI-based tools, such as programmable building blocks, chatbots, open source skills-based routing, and real-time sentiment analysis, intelligent communications are helping companies to completely transform the way they communicate, how they operate, and how they connect with customers.

OPEN TALK (AI): Productionizing your Machine Learning Models
You've developed and trained your ML model, and it performs beautifully in your development environment -- but what happens when you move that into production, and it suddenly has to scale massively varying elastic workloads, compete with other models for memory and processing resources, or mesh with models deployed in other languages and frameworks?

It isn't enough to simply fire up a machine instance, write a Flask wrapper, and call it a day: properly productionizing a model requires a deep understanding of container management, load balancing, CI/CD, dynamic resource allocation, and more. In this talk, we'll look at what your team does and does not need to build in order to move from weeks of deployment time to mere minutes, while preserving elasticity, low-latency, and flexibility.

CANCELLED - PRO WORKSHOP (AI): How to Automate the Creation of NLP Models
There is a growing need to make big data more accessible and intuitive for enterprises. By applying artificial intelligence to power smart conversations about data, chatbots will transform the way companies rely on intelligent conversations to make decisions. Having a personal analytics assistant makes it as simple as having a conversation to get all the powerful answers you need for success. A main take away of this session would be the advancements in voice first technology and how natural language processing is shaping the way we understand and use data. Voice, after all, is the most primitive form of communication.This talk focuses on an innovative process to capture a database’s metadata and the end users’ vocabulary, and use definitive queries to rank distances using a word embedding approach, to deliver optimal responses to questions in natural language. To support this level of personalization, semi-automated disposable models can be implemented rapidly to support questions on proprietary databases from many different points of view - transactions, devices, customers, tickets etc. These models can be improved continuously through retraining based on user feedback. This flexibility supports an iterative process for developers to implement changes on a daily basis when necessary - instead of using one massive AI model that takes too much time to build and is worth too much to dispose of.

PRO WORKSHOP (API): What Hackers Don’t Want You To Know: How to Maximize Your API Security
What do Google, Facebook, Paypal, IRS, and USPS have in common? The answer is hackers exploited their APIs to access sensitive customer information. Although these API attacks were detected and exposed, most API-based attacks go undetected in today's technologically sophisticated world – particularly attacks that come from authenticated sources. With the number of APIs increasing constantly right along with the number of API attacks, API security has never been so important to an organization's success.

Ping Identity and MuleSoft have partnered together with a market-leading solution to tackle the complexities and nuances of protecting API infrastructures and the digital assets that they connect.

This session will discuss today’s API threat landscape and explore what you can do to both detect and block advanced attacks on APIs. The presentation will first dive into the API development lifecycle using a live API built with MuleSoft. We will look at some common monitoring capabilities on the MuleSoft API and what a security violation would look like.

Then, we will have some fun by simulating attacks on our own API. In this phase of the presentation, we will simulate some basic attacks and show how security policies or a web application firewall can block these common attacks.

From there, we will dive even deeper by simulating more advanced attacks from authenticated users (data theft and API takeover), hackers who have reverse engineered an API, and layer 7 DoS attacks that fly under the SLA radar. This is where we will showcase PingIntelligence’s advanced capabilities by showing how a MuleSoft API (or any other API) can connect with PingIntelligence to detect and prevent sophisticated attacks. This will allow the audience to see how the PingIntelligence software uses AI to discover and model normal behavior on an API to block and report on advanced attacks.

PRO WORKSHOP (MICROSERVICES): Managing Kubernetes Traffic with Istio
Developers are moving away from large monolithic apps in favor of small, focused microservices that speed up implementation and improve resiliency. Microservices and containers changed application design and deployment patterns, but along with them brought challenges like service discovery, routing, failure handling, security and visibility to microservices.“Service mesh” architecture was born to handle these features. Applications are getting decoupled internally as microservices, and the responsibility of maintaining coupling between these microservices is passed to the service mesh.Istio, a joint collaboration between IBM, Google and Lyft provides an easy way to create a service mesh that will manage many of these complex tasks automatically, without the need to modify the microservices themselves.In this workshop we will see how istio can be used to manage traffic in a demo application running microservices. We will learn why kubernetes need “service mesh” and how does Istio improve network traffic management.

OPEN TALK (AI): CPU vs. GPU vs. Cloud - Bring the Power of Machine Learning to Your IoT Edge Device
This talk will provide deep insights in comparing CPU vs. GPU vs. Cloud based solutions in real-world scenarios. We will also explore how Open Source platforms can facilitate edge computing applications, including Java and Python frameworks' capabilities on ARM and X86 architectures.

As we continually search for bigger, more complicated problems, the demands we place on the computing power continue to grow rapidly. So where next - how can we continue to build models and algorithms that scale as our data does or enable us to tackle even more intricate problems?
Edge Processing not only optimizes large-scale data mining and aggregation, (by moving the data processing portion of an application to a single unit, known as the Gateway) but also facilitates Machine Learning in modern IoT applications. Most IoT gateways however, are only capable of running basic data aggregation functions due to their limited parallel processing capabilities of their CPUs.
For IoT devices to truly simulate human intelligence, not only do they need to implement neural networks, but they also need to take advantage of their distributed resources collectively.
In comparison with traditional CPU systems a GPU is capable of far higher peak performance for parallel data streams, which is a requirement of artificial neural networks. GPUs have evolved from a fixed pipeline graphics processing hardware into powerful programmable co-processing units capable of performing general purpose computing.

In this talk, Dr Mo Haghighi will explore the challenges and opportunities in edge computing, as well as discussing various platforms and their applicability for various real-world scenarios. This talk will explore JVM capabilities on ARM and X86 architectures, as well as large scale data mining on embedded GPUs. We will also present a benchmarking demo comparing CPUs vs. GPUs for processing time-series data, using a combination of Java and Python libraries.

PRO WORKSHOP (AI): Less Talk, More Rock: Transfer Learning with Natural Language Processing
Natural language processing models require a ton of text data and computing time - resources that aren't available to most. But now you can use powerful pre-trained NLP models from Google, AllenNLP, and others who have done the heavy lifting for you, accessible through straightforward python libraries. Transfer learning allows you to tailor these massive models to your specific domain.2018 ushered in a new era for NLP based on a series of breakthroughs in the use of transfer learning. Traditionally only word vectors such as word2vec, which provide rich representations of _words_, have been reused across different NLP tasks. However, word vectors have no notion of the context in which a word occurs, which is severely limiting. _Context-aware_ transfer learning is a powerful new technique that has already made a great impact.Within a year, transfer learning has changed the state-of-the-art in nearly every category. It is being used to generate extremely realistic text, and some work has even been kept secret for fear of its potential for misuse. It has made improvements in sentiment analysis, document topic classification, and named entity extraction.But being so new, it’s not well understood how these techniques work, what types of problems benefit most, what hazards exist, or what tools to use. In this talk we’ll cover new techniques in transfer learning, their impacts, and present a framework for how to apply them. We provide recommendations for choosing candidate problems, how to conduct experiments, how to understand and interpret these models, and the available tooling.

OPEN TALK (AI): “AutoAutoML” – Towards a Standardized Automated Machine Learning Pipeline API
Automated Machine Learning is rapidly becoming a pervasive tool for data scientists and machine learning practitioners to quickly build accurate machine learning models.  Recent AutoML products from Google,  Microsoft, AutoSKLearn, Auger.AI and others emphasize a programmatic API approach (versus a visual leaderboard) to applying AutoML.  These products attempt hundreds of algorithm/hyperparameters to choose and tune the best predictive model.  All of these products have a similar processing pipeline to achieve a deployed prediction capability: data importing, configuring training, executing training, evaluating winning models, deploying a model for predictions, and reviewing on-going accuracy.  With AutoML, ML practitioners can automatically retrain those models based on changing business conditions and discovery of new algorithms. But they are often practically locked into a single AutoML product due to the work necessary to program that particular AutoML product’s API.  

To address this, we propose a standardized automated machine learning pipeline: PREDIT (Prediction, Review, Evaluation, Deploy, Import, and Train). And we walk through a multi-vendor open source project called A2ML (http://github.com/deeplearninc/a2ml) that implements this pipeline for Google Cloud AutoML, Microsoft Azure AutoML, AutoSKLearn, H20 and Auger.AI. We then show building an application and trained model with multiple AutoML products simultaneously using this standard API.

OPEN TALK (API): You're Doing Microservices Wrong
Key Takeaways:
  • The “ilities” (reliability, availability, scalability, etc.)
  • The network is not reliable and latency is not zero
  • True scaling of stateful resources and state ownership (local vs remote state)
  • The enterprise data model fallacy
  • Bounded contexts, the ubiquitous language, and microservices
Microservices have changed how we develop and deploy code as well as how we diagnose and debug production issues. While many of the changes from the past era of monolithic applications have been welcome in terms of development speed and ease of deployment, microservices have introduced a whole new set of complications that were never considered previously.
In this session we will briefly cover several basic fallacies of distributed computing and how they affect the development of microservices. Specifically, we will cover how to handle issues related to reliability of external dependencies (such as other microservices) as well as issues related to latency that can wreak havoc on your microservice. Further, we will cover issues related to proper microservice boundaries and how to determine which microservice should handle a particular kind of behavior and where data should live.
The OPEN TALK will give a quick introduction to these concepts and the PRO WORKSHOP version of this material will go into specific techniques designed to reduce or altogether eliminate many of the challenges associated with microservices.

Title: A Scalable Artificial Intelligence Data Pipeline for Accelerating Time to Insight

Speaker: Dr. Sanhita Sarkar, Global Director, Analytics Software Development, Western Digital

Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) requires processing power and adequate storage while executing various deep learning (DL) frameworks. The training and deployment stages of a DL system have different data and processing needs. On one hand, the large volumes of data during
training demands systems with support for massive storage capacity, multiple data formats and protocols for processing dispersed data sets, and sharing of data and models across applications. On the other hand, AI deployment for delivering inference on incoming data requires fast access to the data to meet the demand for AI responsiveness for applications.

The processing and storage needs vary for the different phases of an AI data pipeline comprising of data ingestion, model training and model serving. Disaggregation of GPUs, flash and object storage can enable the delivery of rapid response times and scaling requirements of an AI data pipeline, without compromising on data persistence, quality, durability and cost.

Speaker Bio: Sanhita Sarkar is a Global Director, Analytics Software Development at Western Digital, where she oversees software design and development of analytical features and solutions from edge to data center/cloud. She focuses on key vertical markets such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Defense and Intelligence, Media and Entertainment, and Genomics and Healthcare. Sanhita previously held leadership positions at Teradata, SGI, and Oracle. She received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.

OPEN TALK (AI): Toward Practical Program Synthesis for Data, API, and Workflow Automation
We are coming closer to a reality where computers can generate new programs that solve new problems based on limited human input or natural language. Program synthesis is attempting to capture human intent using high-level descriptions and perhaps a conversational interaction to generate working code. Currently, techniques for constructing programs in general purpose programming languages are not in reach. However, if we restrict the domain of the problem and the type of language we are targeting we are seeing some useful results. The general area of data, API, and workflow automation offers such a restricted problem domain, and this is the domain for which have been developing program synthesis techniques at SnapLogic.

Program synthesis requires a means for humans to describe the outcome of the desired synthesized program. This can be achieved in a variety of ways and while some are aspirational, like arbitrary natural language, the first useful program synthesizers will be ones that generate partially complete programs that require human refinement. The current generation of machine learning models and deep learning frameworks have great potential to make program synthesis more robust and capable.

In this session, Professor Greg Benson will explain the general problem of program synthesis and provide an overview of recent research results as well as current challenges for achieving full and partial synthesis. As a concrete example, Greg will explain the challenges we have faced at Snaplogic in building a synthesizer for the SnapLogic visual programming language, which is used for data, API, and workflow automation. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the state of the art in program synthesis and a view to the future as more platforms incorporate this technology.

OPEN TALK (API): Privacy & Security Through APIs – like Peanut Butter and Jelly
In a world where Data is king, it is the security and privacy regulations that are the bane to its rule. More data means more analytics, more testing, more business intelligence, which in turn can bring about new products, new markets, competitive advantage and ultimately more revenue. Data is Money. However, just like money, more data means more liability and risk. Regulatory organizations and governments are imposing stricter requirements for collection, storage, retention, sharing and usage of sensitive and PII data. 

What does this mean for a technologist and why should they care? 

Many times, regulations and mandatory legal guidelines are nearly impossible to implement and operationalize across the enterprise given the current technology landscape. Every organization needs the ability to protect privacy and comply with laws such as GDPR and CCPA without inhibiting the use of personal data – and it is the security technology that enables this. Privacy and security are not mutually exclusive, nor should they be.

This is where APIs offer flexibility in solving these problems, where large scale data volumes can be scanned or massaged in a way that helps organizations comply with and create a much more secure environment for their most sensitive data.

Please joins us to learn:
1.    How security and privacy regulations affect businesses
2.    What role technology plays in helping organizations comply with regulations
3. How and what APIs can make organizations secure and compliant

IoT can be divided mainly into following four stages:
1. Sensors, Actuators, Controllers (limited resources, limited intelligence)
2. Gateway, Concentrators, Routers (data aggregation, measurement)
3. Edge (analytics, preprocessing)
4. Cloud, Servers (analytics, management)

With the advent of TF lite on microcontrollers, deep learning can be applied at all four stages of IoT.
This presentation will look at evolution of performing functions at every stage of IoT. The presentation will describe how function implementations changed from conventional to rule based to conventional machine learning and finally to deep learning using TF lite.
Conventional machine learning relies on hand crafted feature sets limited to human view and uses large data sets and are not very accurate. Deep learning on the other hand automatically generates engineering feature sets that are beyond human view, provides better training and more accurate prediction that approaches human level accuracy.

OPEN TALK (AI): Anticipatory Banking: Using AI to Create Advantage in a Digital World
In today’s digital world, customers expect businesses to understand their needs. While this may sometimes sound like an exercise in clairvoyance, the truth is that many customers are able to articulate these expectations. By using AI and machine learning to gather and analyze behavioral, social and transactional data, it is possible for organizations to develop a far deeper, more personal understanding of their customer, thus addressing their unique needs in a personal and relevant way. In this talk by Rashed Haq, Publicis Sapient’s global head of artificial intelligence, robotics, and data, will explore practical applications for AI and challenges addressed to bridge the gap between expectation and fulfillment.

OPEN TALK (API): How APIs Simplify Automated Attacks: Prying-Eye Direct-to-API Enumeration Attack
The Prying-Eye enumeration vulnerability recently discovered in leading web conferencing applications by the CQ Prime research team highlights how APIs used in your public facing applications provide bad actors with the same ease of use, efficiency and flexibility benefits that APIs bring to the development community. Rather than scripting a web form fill to launch an attack, bad actors will analyze the web or mobile application to understand the business logic while discovering the APIs in use. Armed with that information, bad actors can then create a bot that will execute an automated attack directly against the APIs. In this session, Shreyans Mehta, CTO and Co-founder of Cequence Security will share recent details of the Prying-Eye attack and the prevalence of using APIs for automated attacks. He will close with security recommendations and how Cequence Security can help.

OPEN TALK (AI): Understanding World Food Economy with Satellite Images and Analytical Methods
With the active launches of new government and commercial Earth Observation satellites it has become possible to observe the food growing process from satellites daily at a global scale for the commodity crops like corn, wheat and sugarcane. Based on the satellite data we can identify and share agriculture-specific insights like: presence of farming activity, presence of irrigation systems, crop classification and productivity assessment.
A pipeline starts with a set of images specifically designed for daily monitoring the growth of commodity crops: corn, soybean, rice and wheat. To process this data we use our processing and delivery system with AI/ML (boosting) used for understanding vegetation patterns and AI for scaling the models on other climate zones.
The main challenges of this approach is availability of regional dataset to understand the context and working with massive datasets like over 10PB of just Open Source Earth Observation data.
It the presentation I will provide an overview of existing data sources for analyzing food production patterns at global scale, overview of implementation techniques to process data cubes covering the whole World with various remote sensing data source and a case study of how to iterate with data processing and delivery infrastructure for satellite imagery.

OPEN TALK (API): OWASP API Security Top 10
In recent years, large reputable companies such as Facebook, Google and Equifax have suffered major data breaches that combined exposed the personal information of hundreds of millions of people worldwide. The common vector linking these breaches – APIs. The scale and magnitude of these breaches are the reason API security has been launched into the forefront of enterprise security concerns – now forcing us to rethink the way we approach API security as a whole.

OWASP Top 10 project has for a long time been the standard list of top vulnerabilities to look for and mitigate in the world of web applications.

APIs represent a significantly different set of threats, attack vectors, and security best practices. This caused the OWASP community to launch OWASP API Security project earlier this year.

In this session we’ll discuss:

· What makes API Security different from web application security
· The top 10 common API security vulnerabilities
· Examples and mitigation strategies for each of the risks

PRO SESSION (MICROSERVICES): Quality Never Goes out of Style: Applying Lessons Learned from SOA, Web Service, and REST API Testing to Microservices
Microservices represent the next logical step in the evolution of distributed computing, rather than a complete break with the past. When implementing this type of fresh approach, it can be tempting to come up with an entirely new set of procedures for carrying out important tasks. While this is certainly helpful when these responsibilities haven‚ been encountered before, it‚ wise to avoid reinventing the wheel whenever possible.Fortunately, carrying out the vital job of ensuring that your microservices are highly reliable and performant can profit from well-established best practices and patterns for testing mission-critical distributed software assets. These have been utilized for more than 10 years, and have helped make the API era possible. All of these proven techniques can be invaluable to microservices designers, developers, and testers.In this thought-provoking event, we cover a number of practical, easily-applied guidelines that will serve you well as you develop and expand your microservices portfolio. These will include:- Using automation to assist in attaining 100% code testing coverage - Going beyond traditional unit testing to incorporate anticipated composition and orchestration into your quality assurance process Employing statistically significant quantities of meaningful data to fuel your tests- Subjecting your microservices to realistic load volumes and geographically distributed consumers- Organizing and evolving your microservices testing inventory via effective governance.

OPEN TALK (API): How APIs Protect Consumers & Modernize Companies
Not since Y2K has a compliance issue driven as much activity as GDPR. As companies gather consumer information to deliver digital experiences, consumers gathered to ensure companies protected data and offered ways to opt out all together. Adobe helps enable brands that leverage our Experience Cloud products to help our customers respect their customer’s choices by leveraging our GDPR API. While APIs can be a pathway to functionality exposed by software products - they also offer an opportunity to think differently about system design. 
 
By combining our GDPR API with Adobe I/O Events brands can avoid managing a deluge of notification emails and deliver notifications directly to consumers who subscribe. While GDPR is perhaps old news - New regulatory requirements like the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) make privacy tools and services relevant for the foreseeable future. APIs help enable rapid access to notify consumers while respecting their choices. Companies should consider building their products on systems that help keep data secure while at the same time helping to provide easier ways to honor user choices.

OPEN TALK (API) : Macroservices: A Pragmatic Solution Architecture
Many developers are moving away from traditional monolithic application architectures to creating smaller microservices, each with their own APIs. But there is a third solution that is often overlooked: macroservices. Developers should always aim for the path of least resistance, so if the business exists in a domain where stability is paramount and functional areas of focus loosely coupled, an API-based macroservice architecture can bring a balance between the reliability of microservices and the ease of maintainability of a monolith. 
In this session, we’ll talk about how you assess if your solution is a good candidate for this approach, how to get started building an API-based macroservice architecture and learn from our experience in doing so.

OPEN TALK (API): Deep Dive: Protecting API-Based Applications From Automated Bot Attacks
The term API security can mean many different things. For some, it incorporates visibility and management commonly found in API Gateways. For others, it revolves around preventing traditional application vulnerability exploits, typically delivered by WAFs and more recently API Security products.

An often-overlooked aspect of API security is the protection of your public facing APIs from automated bot attacks such as account takeovers, fake account creation and content scraping.

By targeting the API for their automated attack, a bad actor can leverage the same benefits of ease of use, efficiency and flexibility that APIs bring to the development community. The ubiquity and stateless nature of APIs means that protecting them from automated attacks requires a non-intrusive, intelligence-based approach.

In this session, product experts will use the Cequence Application Security Platform (ASP) management interface to demonstrate how the product uses machine learning and other techniques to protect your API-based application infrastructure from automated attacks. Attendees will gain an understanding of:

• Cequence product architecture and how it effectively bakes security into the application development workflow
• How Cequence provides complete visibility into public facing applications and automated threats
• Where Cequence fits in the API security provider spectrum

Join Richard Sand, CEO of IDF Connect, for a wide-ranging talk about the innovative, API-centered approach to web security his company implemented when creating SSO/Rest, a universal, Cloud-enabled REST solution for single sign-on (SSO), authentication, and access management.

Topics to be addressed include:
• The central value of using security APIs: the ability to declare security policies centrally, rather than code them locally.
• The crucial need for simplicity when implementing security APIs.
• The slim plugin approach: o A single library that lets you simply “declare-and-go”, using your build management system of choice (e.g. Maven, Gradle, etc.).  o Turnkey integration to platforms, containers, and servers for turnkey, Cloud-enabled SSO and perimeter enforcement. o Extreme flexibility with respect to CI/CD methodologies, due to the ability to include the plugin as a direct dependency in the application without requiring any code changes at all - the very existence of the dependency automatically activates protection 
• The singular architectural flexibility that the SSO/Rest model enables: web access management as a service, and a virtual access control perimeter that can encompass resources on premises or in the Cloud.

At the same time, microservice architectures are introducing new testing challenges, such as understanding how to isolate each component for testing.Join Chris, as he will discuss the different architectures and protocols employed in microservice development (i.e. Kafka, Rabbit MQ, REST, and Protobuf). You will learn how to maximize the benefits of developing microservices while meeting the challenges they introduce. Takeaways include:Understanding the practical differences between some of the common microservice architecturesHow to effectively test in a synchronous ecosystem using REST, taking advantage of existing contracts to validate that changes you make will not break the system How to approach testing in an event-driven ecosystem, using Kafka event streamsWhen and how service virtualization can help provide a stable test environment given the challenge of isolating components in microservice testing

PRO SESSION (API): Day Zero Data Strategies for the API Lifecycle
As young companies begin to grow and mature, so should their tech stack and data structures. However, as early organizational structures come into place, they almost always produce data silos that prevent companies from understanding the larger picture. Manually blending this data usually creates major issues down the road and for your APIs. For companies that want to get to an advanced level of data maturity quickly, it can be more valuable (and worthwhile) to invest in modern, advanced analytics and business intelligence as early as day zero. Periscope Data needed a customized and comprehensive data strategy to manage their increasing data volumes, permit real–time transparency across departments and enhance their reporting and decision-making processes. They created a single source of truth to democratize their data and speed up the process in their API lifecycle.In this presentation, Harry Glaser, former CEO & Co-founder of Periscope Data and now President of Data Business and General Manager of San Francisco at Sisense, will introduce the problems today’s data teams face, how they can adapt, and why it is important to “future proof” your data tech stack from day zero to become a truly modern data team and company.

OPEN TALK (AI): AI-based Cloud Backup Strategy
The demands and complexity of backup storage have increased exponentially over recent years. The storage and backup needs of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure applications such as IoT, microservices, analytics, and private clouds require the data protection of modern workloads such as NoSQL DBs, VMs, containers, IoT data, and so on. These needs are demanding and diverse, requiring something beyond traditional backup solutions. In this session learn how to use machine learning to analyze workloads at runtime to identify their data protection characteristics, such as data deduplication and backup retrieval usage patterns, and then recommend appropriate backup targets such as in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s object store and backup appliances.

Gartner calls the entwining of people, devices, content and services the intelligent digital mesh - enabled by digital models, business platforms and a rich, intelligent set of services to support digital business.   Organizations have unfortunately been forced to implement disparate digital ecosystems for each piece of their "mesh" without a cohesive strategy.  Further adding to the chaos, initiatives to move to microservices and make existing services "smarter" with artificial intelligence (AI), serverless functions, and automation add significant complexity while adversely affecting performance.  Tim Arvanites, CTO of aapi, will investigate methods to effectively integrate apps, things, people, and logic into an intelligent digital mesh with a single source of truth.

OPEN TALK (API): Securing APIs in a Mobile-First World
In mobile, there’s been an explosion of technology choices at every level of the stack and app lifecycle. There are dozens of frameworks/platforms to build mobile apps, and developers can choose from 1000s of mobile SDKs and APIs to complete the functionality of their apps.

This freedom is awesome for developers as they have a tremendous amount of flexibility to use the best tools available to deliver their mobile outcomes as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

However, the burden of mobile security usually falls on mobile developers to implement and this creates a number of challenges:
1. There’s no common integration layer in mobile to add services or apply security universally. That’s why there are thousands of SDKs, and each one of them requires the source code of an app to change. 
2. Securing mobile apps and APIs is subjective. It relies on a mobile developer to read SDKs, understand the service in the SDK, then modify the code to implement the service. There’s a lot of room for error. 
3. Traditional security approaches don’t work in mobile. They are either too intrusive, too hard to implement, or too narrow in focus. 

In this workshop, you will get a hands-on overview of how mobile app developers can secure their apps, the APIs and SDKs in their apps, and protect their back-end servers from credential stuffing and all other vectors of attack.

OPEN TALK (MICROSERVICES): You're Doing Microservices Wrong. Here's How to Fix It
Key Takeaways:
  • The “ilities” (reliability, availability, scalability, etc.)
  • The network is not reliable and latency is not zero
  • True scaling of stateful resources and state ownership (local vs remote state)
  • The enterprise data model fallacy
  • Bounded contexts, the ubiquitous language, and microservices
Microservices have changed how we develop and deploy code as well as how we diagnose and debug production issues. While many of the changes from the past era of monolithic applications have been welcome in terms of development speed and ease of deployment, microservices have introduced a whole new set of complications that were never considered previously.
In this session we will briefly cover several basic fallacies of distributed computing and how they affect the development of microservices. Specifically, we will cover how to handle issues related to reliability of external dependencies (such as other microservices) as well as issues related to latency that can wreak havoc on your microservice. Further, we will cover issues related to proper microservice boundaries and how to determine which microservice should handle a particular kind of behavior and where data should live.
The OPEN TALK will give a quick introduction to these concepts and the PRO WORKSHOP version of this material will go into specific techniques designed to reduce or altogether eliminate many of the challenges associated with microservices.

KEYNOTE (API): Guidebook -- APIs: The Key to Elevating Mobile App Automation
Your mobile app should work seamlessly with existing software and applications in your organization’s toolbox. Open APIs have evolved -- the availability and accessibility have made them almost as simple and fast as pushing a button. The arrival of programmatic APIs extends the functionality, automating a range of software application integrations.

The proposed speaker will share best practices for leveraging a programmatic API by way of a real-world use case that highlights a seamless integration via an open API. Specifically, the speaker will share a use case about how a customer, an email marketing automation platform provider, used an open API to create a personalized conference experience for its attendees. Integrating a mobile event app with custom event tracking, complex workflows, and custom analytics to report on its conference data, the customer leveraged its conference to better understand their customers. 

The speaker will walk attendees briefly though some specific examples, which include: -How a programmatic API works and the benefits of utilizing an open API -Automated CRM flows & reporting and analytics integration -Customer use case(s) and how they incorporated an open API for integrations and custom functionality   -The future of open APIs and the impact on the mobile app industry  -Other considerations

PRO SESSION (API): Using Developer API to Revolutionize Lead Generation in Real Estate
SetSchedule utilizes ATTOM’s Automated Valuation Model (AVM) delivered via API to help power our SetValue network for homeowners. This gives homeowners the opportunity to see what their house is estimated to be sold for if they were interested in selling their property,” said Roy Dekel, CEO with SetSchedule, an application that matches buyers with Realtors using data and AI. “Utilizing the ATTOM API developer platform to deliver the AVM allows us to instantly provide homeowners with a better understanding of what their house is worth without having to look at comparable houses since the system factors that in.”
This presentation describes how SetSchedule uses ATTOM’s developer API to integrate ATTOM’s AVM data into its AI-powered predictive data algorithms, creating data-based stories around specific properties they can provide to both buyers and Realtors, while also leveraging those data-based stories to properly match and connect buyers and Realtors. This process turns the pay-per-impression model on its head, into pay-per-action, using an AI environment to increase the odds that a real estate agent will close the deal.

OPEN TALK (AI): Deep Learning and AI for the Enterprise IT: Applications, Challenges & Best Practices
The growing adoption of mobility, IoT and cloud significantly increases the impact of network infrastructure on enterprise businesses, and creates new challenges for traditional human-driven network operation. In this talk, we will share empirical experiences of using ML/DL and AI to build the autonomous enterprise network operation solution that provides visibility, troubleshooting, reporting and maintenance of an enterprise network.

We first introduce the detailed architecture, which includes four main components: measurement, detection, orchestration and automated/suggested actions. Then we dive deeper into the example of anomaly detection where we use unsupervised confident deep multivariate models to automatically baseline and detect the user-impacting connectivity issues inside enterprise network together with other contextual information from scope and root cause analysis to make the AI results interpretable and actionable for end users. In addition, we share some results of the anomaly detection models in practice across thousands of sites. We also describe an anomaly detection example that we use deep learning models to automatically baseline and detect the user-impacting connectivity issues inside enterprise network, together with other contextual information from scope and root cause analysis to make the AI results interpretable and actionable for end users.

At last, the speakers will discuss some common challenges and best practices people encounter while developing ML/AI-driven enterprise applications, including:
1. Building the cloud-native analytics infrastructure for agility, scalability and visibility
2. Leveraging visualization, model interpretation, and feedback to keep humans in the loop while developing machine intelligence;
3. Building human trust in the step-by-step process of automation, augmentation and autonomy
4. Accelerating knowledge learning and sharing across enterprises in a SaaS environment without compromising individual privacy.

OPEN TALK (API): DevOps - the Gateway to the API Frontier
In the last few years APIs have rapidly become a fundamental part of every organization’s enterprise software architecture, resulting in an explosion of APIs assimilating themselves across the entire IT landscape of the organization.  APIs make it possible for organizations to expose data and services in web apps, mobile apps, connected devices, and other digital products and services to drive innovative business models.  This strange new world is the API economy.  If you want to survive, you need to learn how to successfully assimilate of APIs into your architecture: understand how to contain and manage them, discover how to protect them and their access to your unique enterprise data, and learn how to deploy them for maximum success.  In this live demo, we will take you on a journey through API enablement, management and deployment using a DevOps approach to capitalize on the API economy without compromising your distinctiveness.

OPEN WORKSHOP (API): The Cookies Are Starting to Crumble: How Growing Privacy Constraints Are Changing the Future of Digital Marketing
A significant chunk of the internet is about to become untrackable for marketers. As part of an effort to combat advertising fraud, Google is about to make it easier for internet users to block cookies that originate from a different website (cross-site cookies). With Google Chrome controlling about two-thirds of the internet, the impact of this change will be huge—and marketers need to get ready.

It’s the latest in a growing movement toward digital identity becoming decentralized, regulated, and cloud-based, and ultimately controlled by the users. Marketers who don’t want to be left out will need to adopt new strategies and tactics to safeguard privacy while making strategic use of data to provide customers with the services and products they demand.

Key takeaways:
  • As privacy and security regulations become more stringent, marketers
will need to find ways to extract more value from their first-party data and become less reliant on third-party data.
  • IT and marketing need to collaborate to create customer data platforms (CDPs) meet regulatory requirements while delivering the greatest value for the end customer. 
  • Marketing strategy needs to evolve from transparency to consent, and ultimately to user control.

PRO WORKSHOP (MICROSERVICES): Securing Microservices in a Zero Trust Environment
The microservices architecture expands the attack surface with multiple microservices communicating with each other remotely. It’s a common principle in security that the strength of a given system is only as strong asthe strength of its weakest link. Unlike in any other system design, the repercussions will be extremely highly if we do not get right the security in a microservices deployment. In a microservices security design, we mainly worry about four things: Edge Security (OAuth 2.0, mTLS), Securing Service to Service communication (mTLS, JWT, Service Mesh), Security at the Deployment (Kubernetes, Docker), and Secure Development Lifecycle. After talking about microservices for many years, we have now started seeingmany microservices production deployments. Most of these deployments today, only worry about the edge security - by exposing the microservices via APIs - and protecting those with an API gateway. Once a request passes theAPI gateway, the communication between microservices assumes a trusted network, and exposes endless possibilities to an attacker gaining access to the network to exploit all valuable business assets exposed by themicroservices. Less emphasis on securing service to service communication happens due to couple of reasons. Mostly, the lack of awareness of the zero trust networking principles and associated risk factors, and the complexity of the available tools. The technology around securing service to service communication following zero trust security principles have evolved a lot in last couple of years and keeps evolving. Kubernetes has become the de facto deployment for microservices - and Istio has increased its support for securing service to service communication with mTLS and JWT. Also open source projects like SPIFFE and OPA are becoming mainstream to address key concerns in microservices security. In this talk I explore multiple service to service security patterns in a microservices deployment to support zero trust security principles, and how a project can evolve/mature its security design in phases.

Knowledge Graphs have gained significant visibility with advancements in artificial intelligence and the adoption of graph technologies in the Enterprise. By combining artificial intelligence, graph databases, and dynamic visualizations, we will discuss deploying graph based AI applications as a means to help predict future events across numerous types of industries.

Knowledge creation via AI and Graphs stems from the capability to combine the probability space (i.e. statistical inference on a user’s data) with a knowledge base of comprehensive industry terminology systems. AI using Graphs are remarkable not just because of the possibilities they engender, but also because of their practicality. The confluence of knowledge via machine learning, visual querying, and graph databases not only displays links between objects, but also quantifies the probability of their occurrence. We believe this approach will be transformative across numerous business verticals.

During the presentation we will describe the Graph based AI concepts and techniques for developing Enterprise Knowledge Graph solutions.

Many times in different type of APIs like SOAP and REST, there are multiple challenges in development which requires either workaround or need to hard code using data parsing strategy. In this session we will challenge those use case when we get REST response in various categories like
  • Response with multiple Pages
  • Response with Current Page and Next Page Link
  • Response cannot be retrieved for more than 5000 records in one request, as per limitation from server
  • Process millions of records in structured format from files like json, xml or text
  • Deal with security tokens with short life time which in turn gives the major REST API response
  • In REST URL the parameters needs to be changed dynamically based on other data source changes.

Enterprises increasingly rely on microservices to improve on business agility. But, while a successfully executed microservices strategy lets developers create and adapt services rapidly, it also results in a continually growing and organically evolving architecture that is difficult to operate and secure without the ability to control the chaos in realtime.This talk analyzes the problems faced by operations, SRE and security teams, explores popular approaches such as introducing a service mesh and presents lessons learned from applying operational patterns in realtime across a number of verticals. Key takeaway is that, while service meshes can help with developer concerns around service-to-service communication, operations and security practitioners need global and realtime controls to govern the chaos that a successful microservices strategy creates.Keywords: Microservices, Service Mesh, Cloud Traffic Control, Operations, Security, Architecture

This demo highlights why a container is perfect for testing MySQL, how to set up your MySQL 8.0 container, and outlines which features within MySQL 8.0 are perfect for containers.

OPEN TALK (AI): Building Multimodal (Video, Audio) Ml Applications for Mobile & Edge Devices
Video, audio (multimodal) mobile and edge use cases that utilize machine learning models (eg Tiktok, Shazam, Google Home Hub) are becoming more common. However, creating these multimodal ML applications are challenging as developers need to deal with real time synchronization of time series data during model inference and doing it cross platform on mobile and edge devices.
Google open sourced in Jun 2019, MediaPipe (https://mediapipe.dev), a cross platform applied machine learning pipeline framework that simplifies the development process. My talk will be introducing open source MediaPipe framework, walking through mobile and edge (EdgeTPU coral) demos and getting developers started on building multimodal ML applications
