Emerging Trends in Open Standards and Cloud Computing for Data Mining.

Please join us for an exciting panel discussion at the 15th ACM SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining in Paris.

Over the past decade, we have seen tremendous interest in the application of data mining and statistical algorithms, first in research and science and, more recently, across various industries. Impacting scientific and business applications alike, interoperability and open standards still lack broader adoption in the data mining community. In addition, emerging trends in cloud computing and Software as a Service will play a critical role in promoting the effective implementation and widespread application of predictive models.

The panel will discuss various topics related to open standards and cloud computing, with a particular focus on the practical use of statistical algorithms, reliable production deployment of models and the integration of predictive analytics within other systems.

Moderated by Zementis, the panel is comprised of a distinguished group of thought leaders representing key software vendors in the data mining industry including DMG / Open Data Group, IBM, KNIME, KXEN, Microstrategy, Pervasive, SAS and SPSS.

For details, please see the KDD 2009 web site.

Comprehensive blog featuring topics related to predictive analytics with an emphasis on open standards, Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML), cloud computing, as well as the deployment and integration of predictive models in any business process.
