Data Science, AI & Deep Learning Conference, London, United Kingdom

The emergence of Data Science is considered to be a great advance in the domain of modelling. The abundance and the explosive growth of recorded data in recent years has added a new dimension to the established paradigms of theoretical, empirical and computational modelling; these are now augmented by data driven modelling. Data Science encompasses the established domains of data warehousing, data mining, cluster analysis, pattern classification, machine learning and data visualisation. The application of Machine Learning in general and Deep Learning in particular, to very large data sets, has led to ground-breaking progress in recognising patterns of sounds, images, & data.

The human brain finds it difficult to make sense out of very large volumes (peta bytes) of unstructured data. Yet Deep Learning can discover hidden 'connections and patterns'. Humans are not able to model these 'connections and patterns' because their cognition power limits them in making sense of these very large data sets and their inherent complexities.

This event brings together experts from industry and academe to explore and discuss the major advances and applications of these technologies. Come along and open up to the new era of AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning and find out how this can help you and your organisation in an increasingly 'data-driven world'.

Meeting genuinely serious Middle East investors is notoriously difficult. Local SWFs, family offices and pension funds pride themselves on being elusive in their strategies, protecting their investments and being cautious with who they meet. The Middle East Investment Summit 2018 is the region's number one platform for local allocators to assess new asset managers. In its 19th year, the show will once again host the largest investors in the region and present them with the most lucrative investment opportunities.

Big Data Cloud Expo, New York, New York, USA

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher. Big Data at Cloud Expo is the place where you can see the technologies and use cases that are delivering Big Data to enterprise IT.

CeBIT 2018, Hannover, Germany

The revamped CeBIT will revolve around the open-air site, with the EXPO canopy as its central hub. The halls around the d!campus will house the three main pillars of the reinvented CeBIT: d!conomy, d!tec and d!talk. The d!conomy showcase will be where digital solution providers and their commercial and public-sector customers will get down to business. Disruptive technologies, research institutes and startups will be on front and center stage at the new technology festival called d!tec. And last but not least, the d!talk programme will offer rich opportunities for dialogue, debate and knowledge-sharing in a series of conferences, workshops and keynotes held at various locations throughout the grounds.

Day one of the five-day event - 11 June 2018 - will be devoted entirely to high-caliber dialogue between digital business leaders and government policymakers, with admission restricted to journalists and Welcome Night attendees. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday - with d!conomy, d!tec and d!talk on the agenda - solution providers and their customers will be in the spotlight. On 14 June, a special event will also be held to set the tone for an "open day" on Friday, when the d!campus and selected other sections of the show will be open to the general public.

Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing Conference - PASC18, Basel, Switzerland

PASC18 is the fifth edition of the PASC Conference series, an international platform for the exchange of competences in scientific computing and computational science, with a strong focus on methods, tools, algorithms, application challenges, and novel techniques and usage of high performance computing.

The theme of PASC18 is "Fast and Big Data, Fast and Big Computation", emphasizing the vision of the close coupling of data and computation. Exposing and expressing massive and irregular parallelism in computational problems are key challenges for exploiting the massive and heterogeneous parallelism available in current, and expected in future, HPC systems, as well as to find new ways of generating scientific insight from data and models. Through its rich and interactive programme, PASC18 aims to highlight the computational approaches that computational scientists, computer scientists, and practitioners employ today and will employ over the next decades to address these challenges.

Deadline for paper submission is January 19, 2018.
