Disruptive innovation, in the LION way
Learn by doing
Power to the people
here we come to the heart
Realizing the vision of extreme automation.
Unlock the hidden value in your business data.
What-if scenarios, improve decisions and ROI.
Realize the dream of continuous creation
by self-reflective tools.
An intensive and concrete introduction, intended for managers and technical
people alike. Vision, goals, strategies, discussion. No math. No software.
Standard schedule is from 9.00 to 18.00 with two coffee breaks, lunch and workshop dinner.
Given the strictly limited participation, in addition to the presentations by top experts and pioneers, important values of our workshops are ample time for questions, in-depth discussions and brainstorming about specific business problems .
Topics of the first day are:
Let's discuss about the overall LION vision and power but also about potential pitfalls, resistances, proper ways to get organized to implement the LION way in your business.
Huge amounts of data are produced during business operations. The LION way develops methods and tools to mine this treasure and extract actionable insight. Applications are far-reaching, ranging from marketing and e-commerce, to finance, bioinformatics, healthcare, engineering, and social networks. After models through "learning from data" are available, automated improvement motors run continuously to obtain better and better solutions.
The increasing availability of huge amounts of data in machine readable format represents an unprecedented opportunity but also a formidable challenge. The most recent advances in deep machine learning are needed to scale to large datasets, and deal with unstructured data.
Models able to provide interpretable explanations for decision makers are especially appealing. Providing human explanation facilitates implementation, debugging, and adoption.
Remember, you do not need to be a mechanical engineer to drive your car. But you need knowledge of the destination, the dashboard, steering wheel, etc.
The refreshing feeling of being liberated by intermediate layers of "data priests" to get exactly what you want from a well-orchestrated system cannot be explained in words. You must live through it.
The second day, in addition to LIONbusiness I, is designed for people with some technical competence in and passion for using software tools. The day is dedicated to hands-on practice with tools on concrete and paradigmatic business problems.
Topics of the second day are:
Machine learning and big data are powerful, but it is up to you to define goals, select relevant data, filter out noise, embed the strategy into your daily operations.
Classification, clustering, risk assessment, quality control, marketing and sales. Feel free to specify your core interest so that we will include it into the test-drive experience.
You are very welcome to come with a sample of your data to test our tools on.
