ABOUT #BIGIT2019

In the last 2-3 years, we witnessed big data analytics steadily knocking down inflated expectations and disillusionments to ultimately begin their journey toward high-value, mainstream adoption.

The BIGIT2019 theme – The Rise of the Data-Driven Organization – aptly describes the current state of big data adoption in Malaysia. We are beginning to discover many impactful advanced analytics- and AI-driven products and solutions that are catalysts to organizational transformation.

Yes, we are referring to increased revenues, higher efficiencies and reduced costs.

Come join us for BIGIT2019 to learn how advanced analytics is exploited for gains in key sectors. Listen to how Artificial Intelligence will find the next oil well. Be speechless by how credit card companies exploit Artificial Intelligence to brainwash you into parting with your money. Be reassured by how Artificial Intelligence will produce more jobs than ever.

And many more.

9:30AM | Preparing the next generation: what do we do after AI arrives?

FULL STEAM AHEAD

The Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0) will change how we live and work.  Automation and AI are expected to make many jobs redundant. The World Economic Forum estimated 65% of children in primary schools today will end up working in jobs that haven’t been created yet. So how do we prepare today’s generation for tomorrow?

In SilTerra, one of Malaysia’s most advanced factories, IR4.0 capabilities have been installed from the day it opened in 2001. Even though each of their multi-million dollar tool and equipment is automated, networked and interconnected to report every detail of their operations to an in-house CIM system, the human side of running such a state-of-the-art factory is still much needed to remain competitive.

Teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) capabilities alone is not enough in the age of automation and AI. Humanistic and Liberal Arts capabilities are critical – language skills, communication and negotiation, philosophy and an inquiring mindset among others – to address new challenges that arise when digital and automated systems are put in place.  This session will discuss why STEM is not enough in preparing our children today. We need to add the Arts to make STEAM.

IOT AND MACHINE LEARNING

The bulk of oil losses in Malaysian palm oil mills are due to negligent behaviour. Listen to this expert presentation on how sensors installed at vital machinery points allow for streaming data analytics and proactive supervision. In addition, AI can expose further opportunities to boost palm oil yield by identifying and improving shortcomings in the factory’s processes.

10:30AM |MORNING REFRESHMENT BREAK
11:00AM | How Do You Make $$$ from the Data You Own?

Data Monetization

The million-dollar data question on everyone’s mind: How do you make LOTS OF MONEY from the data you have? Do you sell raw data? Do you sell processed data, or even insights? How do you value your data and create a monetization strategy? Listen to this expert presentation on how REA Asia and iProperty.com.my successfully created revenue opportunities from their property-related data – from transacting data to selling intelligence on regional property performance and market trends.

3:30PM | The Rise Against Landslides: Big Data Analytics to the Rescue

AI & IOT INTERSECTION

Over 55,000 lives were lost globally in the last 15 years due to landslides. And Malaysia has one of the highest frequency of landslides in the world. Current slope monitoring practices lack real-time monitoring. By the time movements are detected, it is usually too late. Listen to this expert presentation on how a combination of IoT and AI is used to develop a remote and instantaneous landslide sensing system. It is able to detect microscopic slope movements, analyse these data and predict potential landslides, transforming landslide monitoring from a conventionally reactive exercise to a proactive early-warning approach that prevents landslides from occurring.

9:00AM | Developing the Soul of a Digital Economy

Society 5.0

Discussions around digital transformation in nations often center around the Whats and Hows of technologies, and not the Whys of businesses, societies and governments.

9:30AM | Coming face to face with the risk of artificial intelligence

AI the Double-Edge Sword

The explosion of big data and the availability of a myriad of analytics tools have enabled the integration of descriptive and predictive analytics into many business processes. The benefits are immense but it also exposes institutions to risks, losses and other pitfalls. AI algorithms unable to adapt to new situations? Discrimination in mortgage lending? Unintended disclosure of user data? Poor AI decisions can result in severe consequences. Listen to this expert presentation on how the stakes in managing AI risks are at an all-time high, and regardless of the technologies adopted, there is no replacement for a sound governance framework. Best practices in model risk management and governance will be shared.

10:00AM | Don't fret over job automation. Instead, ask what AI is lousy at

AI AND JOB DISPLACEMENT

AI cannot feel what the other person is feeling. Nor can it think critically or creatively. These are the things humans are good at. Listen to this expert presentation on how AI performs horribly at jobs requiring imagination, social skills and wisdom. The hype around robots completely replacing us is, well, just a hype.

10:30AM |MORNING REFRESHMENT BREAK
11:00AM | Data Engineering Gone Wild

Data Engineering

In any data science project, data engineering represents 80% of the workload. The process of ingesting and providing clean, granular datasets for data scientists to model and analyse can be gruesome if the data is big, messy and comes from many disjointed sources. Listen to this expert presentation on how Media Prima created its big data pipelines – consisting of hundreds of terabytes of structured and unstructured data from multiple data sources – to deliver a Customer 360 data lake capable of serving highly targeted ads and personalized experiences to their users.
