SUPERMATH Conference to Feature Cutting-Edge Technology Demonstrations in Predictive Analytics
San Diego, CA, Del Mar Marriott - November 10, 2010
SAN DIEGO (October 13, 2010) -- SUPERMATH, a new analytics conference slated for November 10 at the Del Mar Marriott, will feature demonstrations of cutting edge technologies and keynotes by national analytics thought leaders for a day of provocative presentations and futuristic insights designed to inspire, educate and promote collaborations.
A public expo of cutting-edge analytics technologies and practical applications in everyday life will be showcased in four industry "neighborhoods" - Risk, Security and Fraud; Healthcare and Medicine; Media, Marketing and Social Networks, and Energy, Infrastructure and Clean Tech. San Diego is a recognized analytics cluster, and more than 100 area companies are involved in creating new analytics technologies and services that are used nationally and internationally.
Among the 20 technologies to be demonstrated are:
SPAWAR (ship and fire identification and mapping) - The RAPid Image Exploitation Resource (RAPIER) uses advanced image algorithms to detect, classify and map ships and identify and map fires using high-resolution satellite imagery. In case of wildfires, the algorithms can locate thermal "hot spots" behind thick smoke. It is a valuable tool for first responders, disaster response coordinators, maritime law enforcement, and port authorities.
LinkedIn (social media beta test) - Exclusively for SUPERMATH, LinkedIn will demo its new beta product called Signal, which provides a new way to consume information and news that's most relevant to professionals using its networking site. Signal is the first LinkedIn product aimed at helping professionals glean the most relevant insights from status updates and news. SUPERMATH attendees will be given access to the private beta so they can experience how their personal LinkedIn profiles create a more effective social search and news search engine, updated to the minute.
Parity Computing (medical text analysis) - Demonstrates provider-facing healthcare analytics products. These clinical decision support products interpret human-written medical text and real-time device data to save lives, reduce costs, and help hospitals assess themselves. As part of the demo, Parity will pop open the hood to show how human-written medical text is "understood" and interpreted by computers.
UCSD LISA (driver prediction system) - The Laboratory for Intelligent and Safe Automobiles (LISA) explores innovative approaches to making future automobiles safer and "intelligent." Its research considers issues in sensing, analysis, modeling, and prediction of parameters associated with drivers, occupants, vehicle dynamics and vehicle surroundings. LISA will exhibit recent advances in predicting driver behaviors and intentions. In collaboration with automakers Volkswagen and Nissan, LISA has implemented a next-generation Driver Assistance System which predicts driver's intentions to change lanes, turn, or brake up to 2.5 seconds prior to the maneuver.
Intuit (customer feedback analysis) - Can you harvest customer ideas effectively? Intuit, maker of TurboTax software, demonstrates how it applies text analytics to large amounts of unstructured customer feedback (literally the "voice of the customer") to enable improvements in product, infrastructure, and support. This leads to improvements in customer experience for tens of millions of people as well as operational benefits that can lead to substantial saving for the business.
