Keynote Presentation
Business Moments Disrupted! Thriving in the New Digital Economy in the Midst of Technological Innovation

Listen to this keynote talk about Digital Business and why it matters. We will explore real-world examples of how Digital Technologies and digital startups are disrupting traditional business models. We will explore its impact to various industries from these disruptive digital technology trends and provide insights into what organizations can do to survive and thrive in the new digital business economy. The concept of “Business Moments” will also be introduced. They are transient moments of need by a customer that creates the opportunity for organizations to deliver value and profit from it. Lastly, we will examine the role of data science professionals in creating new “Business Moments” insights, transforming stakeholders and customer experience to drive digital innovation.

Alan Goon, Executive Partner, Gartner



Keynote Presentation
It’s No Longer Just Another Digital Transformation. It’s a Data-Driven Digital Transformation!

Organizations that describe digital transformation as simply the incorporation of digital technology into all areas of their business often end up overlooking its power. However, a digital transformation that puts data (and analytics) at the core of its operations will allow an organization to look at their business from a data angle instead of seeing it as a set of processes. This presentation looks at why a data-driven digital transformation is formidable and how it changes the value an organization brings to its customers, and itself.

Expert Presentation
Big Data: Keeping Users Happy with the “Where, When, What, and How”

These days the presence of sharing economy is getting more and more prominent. It’s a decentralised model of bringing supplies to demands efficiently and effectively. This means we need to quickly analyse and anticipate our users needs across Malaysia – using our car-sharing model as an example, it means across 150+ locations. Keeping our customers happy all the time is not easy, but it helps if you have data, lots of it. Where they need more cars? When do they need the cars? How do they use our cars? What keeps them happy when using our cars? Answer these and more with data, and we will reduce the number of unhappy users. Keyword: Reduce.

Alan Cheah, CEO, GoCAR Mobility



Expert Presentation
Transforming Traffic Management with Intelligent Transportation System

Significant increases in vehicle ownership and traffic movement cause traditional traffic management techniques to fail, resulting in severe bottlenecked junctions, high accident rates and congestions in our road networks. The advancement in cloud computing, big data analytics, mobile applications and IoT has created new emerging opportunities for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and promises a new transformation in traffic management that is cheaper, non-restrictive and inclusive. This presentation takes the audience in the exploration of various conventional ITS deployment in road traffic management, with reference to Malaysia’s experiences, and presents potential prospects for new ITS deployments in the traffic management sector as “take home” thoughts.

Datuk Ir Dr Leong Siew Mun , Executive Director, Dynargy Global Sdn Bhd


Afternoon Break & Networking Session




Expert Presentation
Data-Driven Product Innovation

Across the entire business spectrum, data plays a key role in today’s product development. Here’s an overview on how companies utilize data in developing digital products, using e-wallets as a business case. The rampant growth of the e-wallet space and stiff competition have called for discounts, cashbacks and freebies to spur user acquisition. The enticement of rewards has opened a Pandora’s box of potential scams. Listen to this expert presentation on how big data and analytics are exploited in the adoption of deep device interrogation and live data streaming in uncovering high-risk factors, detecting suspicious anomalies in user behavior and fighting fraudulent activities.

Abdullah Abbas, Head of Engineering, DIGI-X



Case Studies
Novel Ways of Using Data from Intel’s Assembly and Test Factory (ATM)

This presentation contains the rationale for computerization and digitization being the first step towards Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0). Listen to Duncan as he runs through the path which Intel took towards IR4.0. He will share some of the standards used and examples of computerization in an industry where their products are the most expensive element of the manufacturing ecosystem. The expert presentation will highlight situations where the Internet of Things (IoT) was used and the importance of collecting, tracking, tracing and remembering all the equipment that processed the products. Use cases exploiting data between machines for predictive maintenance and the usage of image recognition to detect defects in manufacturing will also be shared.

Duncan Lee, Manufacturing IT Principal Engineer, Intel Corporation



Panel Discussion
Making Money from Big Data and AI: Identifying New Trends and Exploiting Opportunities

The availability of affordable and on-demand computing power has made big data and artificial intelligence (AI) accessible beyond research labs. And this means more opportunities for people like you and me to innovate and develop new business models with these technologies. Join us in this panel discussion on some real life success stories of how some organizations exploit big data and AI to reap large profits.

Keynote Presentation
The Prometheus Society and Enabling Technologies

Are we going to be more or less human in the future? With advances in AI, biosciences, augmented and virtual reality, to name just a few, it is thrilling to imagine a future where we begin to look like cyborgs with superintelligence. Listen to this breathtaking keynote on how the rise of intelligent societies will change our lives in many ways. Take artificial intelligence, for instance. When we reach the singularity in 2045, as predicted by Ray Kurzweil, AI will lead to machines that are smarter than human beings. They will merge with us and make us smarter. Will we be free then to focus on strategy, creativity and innovation? Or will we fear these machines inside us taking over us and the world?

Expert Presentation
Managing an Analytics and AI Transformation the Way Your Brain Works

In its immense complexity, artificial intelligence is like human intelligence. Effective analytics teams in businesses interact in the same way as our nervous system does to enable human intelligence:

Analytics Organization: Data professionals are like neurons in our brain, which organise cognitive and analytical functions akin to an analytics organizational chart. Leaders need to understand analytics roles, hiring and retention techniques, organizational models and the role of the Chief Data Officer

Data-driven culture: Culture is like the reptilian brain, the oldest part of our brain, whose primary role is reflex responses, not rational thinking. Relevant topics include building data-centric culture, managing cultural clash, managing people and robots, as well as data ethics.

Analytics Strategy: Is like the neo-cortex, the part of our brain which allows us to develop complex thoughts. Leaders need to define a use case-driven analytics and A.I. roadmap and get buy-in for it.

Analytics Execution: Is like an agile human nervous system which reaches all parts of the body. Relevant topics are managing an experimental project portfolio, agile methodology, metrics and governance.

Successfully managing a team through an analytics and artificial intelligence transformation requires skills and philosophies different from managing other groups of talented professionals. It is wise to be aware of potential trade-offs when it comes to defining the right organization, culture, strategy and execution.

Pedro Uria-Recio, Head of Axiata Analytics Center, Axiata Group Berhad




Expert Presentation
When Reality Does Not Meet Expectations: The Challenges Faced by Data Science Professionals

You were hired because you demonstrated your ability to write intelligent machine and deep learning algorithms. However, in the ensuing three months in your new organization, all you did was produce reports for your boss to present in his weekly board meeting. Many green data scientists think data science is all about predictive analytics, machine learning and unravelling complex issues. This is often a delusion. Listen to this expert presentation on why many data scientists leave their job due to reality not matching their expectations, and how one will need to realign their expectations of an actual data science role.

Listen to this expert presentation on how autonomous vehicles, with their sensors, are designed to detect other vehicles, cyclists and foot-travelers – 360 degrees. And armed with artificial intelligence software, these smart vehicles can also sense and predict the behavior of road users to ensure a safe and comfortable journey. 

Dr Marcelo H. ANG Jr, Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering,National University of Singapore 


Afternoon Refreshment & Networking Session



Expert Presentation
The Art of Data Storytelling

It is not enough to just show your data. You need to tell a story with it. From the most remote villages to ancient scriptures to books and to movies, storytelling is human nature and has existed even before the written language was conceived. Listen to this expert presentation on how we can tell stories with data, and how these stories impact human understanding, can be used to communicate with stakeholders and influence change in the world.

Anthea Low, Data Scientist, Media Prima Digital



Artificial Intelligence: Is the Future More or Less Human? Will the Risks Outweigh the Rewards

There is no doubt our lives are being transformed by intelligent systems. But as these systems become more and more clever, AI experts are increasingly being kept awake at night by new risk assessment and ethical issues surrounding these super-intelligent machines. Tune in and listen to this great debate on whether the future is more or less human. Topics such as the end of jobs, wealth distribution, how machines affect our behavior, technological singularity and racist robots will be discussed and argued at length.
