Stratio's Big Data - Use case in finance - Bank
 
02:08
Real use case of Big Data without Hadoop for a large European bank. Find out more at http://www.stratio.com Transcription: This is Paul. He is a Business analyst at a large European bank Paul analyses millions of transactions of his clients with other financial institutions world-wide every day. Paul needs to create a reporting system to answer questions like who are the clients with the most transactions every hour. He nees to solve 20 queries like this one every 60 minutes. Paul asks for help from his colleague Neil in the IT department Neil regrets to tell Paul that his systems would not even load the data. Neil suggests to speak with Maximilian, a consultant at a large enterprise software corporation. Maximilian screens through his catalog of 922 products... but no, none can cope with all those data! Dave, a Hadoop engineer, joins them. "What's up, guys?" When briefed, Dave proposes a classic Big Data solution consisting in a cluster of 10 nodes with Hadoop and MapReduce. He reckons that he could process queries at a rate of 200 seconds per query However, Paul needs the results in less than 180 seconds! Erm, "OK, it is time for a break I guess, folks" They stumble upon Grace, who works at Stratio - a disruptive Big Data company. Grace agrees to join them for a cup of coffee. Upon listening to their problem, Grace comes up with a suggestion: how about a NoSQL approach requiring 2 nodes only? It would be Hadoop-free [elephant disappears - pop] and capable of cranking out answers at a speed of 20 seconds per query!? No more elephants in the room! Stratio's platform is fast, lean and cheap. It is secure, enterprise-ready and it does not lock your systems or data in. [deep perfunctory tone] This video is based on real events of a real bank. Special thanks to Paul, Neil, Maximilian, Dave... and Grace

OKCon 2011 Tariq Khokhar   Open Data at the World Bank  What we learned in a year and what’s next
 
27:10
In April 2010, the World Bank embraced open data as a key part of the move towards more open development. Our public databases, including the World Development Indicators, are now available free of charge, in accessible formats, under an open license that encourages use and re-use. There are currently over 7,000 available time-series indicators, with around 1,200 available in 5 languages. The recently launched microdata catalog contains 600 surveys with over 250,000 searchable variables and there’s high demand for new data – valuable datasets: financial, operational and statistical, are being identified, curated and published. What have the implications of doing this been inside and outside the World Bank, and what have we learned? Should we expect open data to creatively disrupt the Bank’s work and that of the international development sector as a whole? What’s next for open data at The World Bank? by Tariq Khokhar on June 30th at 16:30 in Track I Tariq Khokhar is the World Bank’s Open Data Evangelist. His interests lie where technology, transparency, poverty and data meet. He formerly led innovation and community engagement work at Aidinfo and the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). He also served as a director of Bond UK and Aptivate, where he delivered IT policy, strategy and implementation projects for governments, NGOs and international organisations across the developing world. okcon.org/2011/programme/open-data-at-the-world-bank-what-we-learned-in-a-year-and-whats-next

How to feel good about poverty
 
02:08
If we ask the BIG QUESTIONS about poverty, we can expose its root causes and get real answers about how to stop creating it. How is poverty created? Why is growth the only answer? Who's developing who? Watch and share this short video to help get as many people asking the BIG QUESTIONS as we can. We’ve all heard the stories told about being poor: we’re ‘born into it’, or ‘it’s just the economy’, or ‘the wealth will trickle down’, or ‘we’re just lazy/unlucky/unfortunate’. These are such powerful stories that they’re easy to believe, but they all hide the fact that poverty is created by hundreds of years of history and inequality; things like colonialism, slavery, racism and resource theft. The United Nation’s (UN) Sustainable Development goals tell us another story: that things are getting better, and that if we keep doing things the way we are and growing the global economy we can end global poverty by 2030. It’s a wonderful goal, but growth won’t deliver it. Our pursuit of economic growth means that we are already ruining the planet at such a rate that – sooner than most people can imagine – large parts of it will become uninhabitable and to get everyone in the world living like an American we’d need the resources of 4.1 earths. We also recognise that nearly all of that growth will end up in the hands of the few – even now the 85 richest people in the world have the same amount of money as the poorest three billion and 18 times more money flows out of the global south every year than trickles into it, so who’s developing who? Sources for videos: Grow the global economy 175 times & 95% of all growth has gone t0 the richest 40%: http://wer.worldeconomicsassociation.org/papers/incrementum-ad-absurdum-global-growth-inequality-and-poverty-eradication-in-a-carbon-constrained-world/ 18 times more money flows out of the global south than trickles in This is a conservative estimate, calculated as follows: $135 billion in aid (http://www.oecd.org/dac/stats/development-aid-stable-in-2014-but-flows-to-poorest-countries-still-falling.htm) vs. $1.8 trillion in tax evasion and avoidance (see below) + $600 billion debt repayments (http://data.worldbank.org/data-catalog/international-debt-statistics) + $60 billion lost due to TRIPS (http://www.ourworldisnotforsale.org/en/article/wipo-seminar-debates-intellectual-property-and-development) Global Financial Integrity calculates that up to $900 billion (http://iff.gfintegrity.org/iff2012/2012report.html) flows out of the developing world into Western accounts each year through trade misinvoicing. But GFI’s figures do not reflect abusive transfer pricing, which the economist Raymond Baker estimates (http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=Wkd0--M6p_oC&printsec=frontcover&dq=capitalism%27s+achilles+heel&hl=en&sa=X&ei=MMrzU7fGPIWe0QWzqICgDA&redir_esc=y) is probably equivalent in scale to trade misinvoicing. So that’s another $900 billion that flows out of the developing world annually. What makes this figure conservative is that it doesn’t take into account $480 billion in lost potential GDP due to structural adjustment, as this figure isn’t directly comparable, or the $2.7 trillion estimated to be lost due to devaluation of labour in the global South, as these are estimates by one economist Gernot Kohler (http://wsarch.ucr.edu/archive/papers/kohler/kohler3.htm), and are around 20 years out of date and difficult to verify.

Energy Poverty: SOS
 
32:06
Full Title: Energy Poverty: SOS by Kaitlin Tomlinson and Rachel Stukenborg Advised by: Dr. Christie-Joy Hartman and Dr. Maria Papadakis Abstract: The purpose of this project was to develop a set of university-level teaching and learning resources about energy poverty that incorporate a spherical display system, Science On a Sphere (SOS). Energy poverty, commonly understood as the lack of access to clean cooking fuels and electricity, is a complex problem that has detrimental health, economic, social, and environmental effects for both the people living in it and the global community. Furthermore, people living in energy poverty are trapped in a cycle of impoverishment because energy poverty interacts in a reinforcing feedback loop with global poverty. Individuals and societies suffering from energy poverty cannot escape it on their own, and combatting the issue requires action from developed countries. The goal of this project was to increase awareness of energy poverty among university students, and SOS was incorporated to facilitate students visualizing differences in energy access and the resulting consequences on a global scale. This capstone contributes to the emergent use of spherical display systems for formal education by developing materials that facilitate use of SOS by faculty. Four separate lesson “packages” regarding energy poverty were created. The first three explore the nature and consequences of energy poverty and are presented on SOS, while the fourth delves into the social, political, economic, and cultural dynamics of sustainable solutions and is taught after the SOS presentation. Each lesson package includes a background analysis, a comprehensive lesson plan, and supporting teaching and learning resources. The first three packages also include SOS “datasets” for select energy poverty indicators, such as access to non-solid fuels (% of population by country). Data were obtained from the World Bank’s Data Catalog and the Center for International Earth Science Information Network. Maps were created in ArcGIS and exported as individual, static image files for SOS.

The Choice is Ours (2016) Official Full Version
 
01:37:20
https://www.thevenusproject.com Intro: 0:00 Part 1 6:16 Part 2 23:28 Part 3 47:03 Part 4 1:19:09 Produced/Directed by Roxanne Meadows and Joel Holt Script by Roxanne Meadows Editor Joel Holt, assisted by Roxanne Meadows & Nathanael Dinwiddie Original Score by Kat Epple This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as a civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice Is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face. Part I provides an introduction and overview of cultural & environmental conditions that are untenable for a sustainable world civilization. It explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature” while demonstrating how environment shapes behavior. The science of behavior is an important - yet largely missing - ingredient in our culture. Part II questions the values, behaviors, and consequences of our social structures, and illustrates how our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Critical consideration of the banking, media, and criminal justice systems reveals these institutions for what they really are: tools of social control managed by the established political and economic elite. If we stay the present course, the familiar cycles of crime, economic booms & busts, war, and further environmental destruction are inevitable. Part III explains the methods and potential of science. It proposes solutions that we can apply at present to eliminate the use of non-renewable sources of energy. It depicts the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture”, where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment. Part IV explains how it is not just architecture and a social structure that is in desperate need of change, but our values which have been handed down from centuries ago. They too need to be updated to our technological age, which has the potential to eliminate our scarcity-driven societies of today. Our problems are mostly of our own making, but we can still turn things around before the point of no return. It’s not too late for an optimistic outlook on the fantastic possibilities that lie before us. Jacque Fresco-Futurist, Industrial Designer, Social Engineer, Founder of The Venus Project Jeffrey A.

The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.

Gimel PayPal's Analytics Data Platform
 
01:01:37
Presenters: Romit Mehta & Deepak (DC) Chandramouli @ PayPal At PayPal, data engineers, analysts and data scientists work with a variety of datasources (Messaging, NoSQL, RDBMS, Documents, TSDB), compute engines (Spark, Flink, Beam, Hive), languages (Scala, Python, SQL) and execution models (stream, batch, interactive). Due to this complex matrix of technologies and thousands of datasets, engineers spend considerable time learning about different data sources, formats, programming models, APIs, optimizations, etc. which impacts time-to-market (TTM). To solve this problem and to make product development more effective, PayPal Data Platform developed "Gimel", a unified analytics data platform which provides access to any storage through a single unified data API and SQL, that are powered by a centralized data catalog. In this session, Romit and DC introduce the various components of Gimel - Compute Platform, Data API, PCatalog, GSQL and Notebooks. We will provide a demo depicting how Gimel reduces TTM by helping our engineers write a single line of code to access any storage without knowing the complexity behind the scenes.

The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy
 
01:44:59
The global economy is in crisis. The exponential exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models. Where do we go from here? In this feature-length documentary, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin lays out a road map to usher in a new economic system. A Third Industrial Revolution is unfolding with the convergence of three pivotal technologies: an ultra-fast 5G communication internet, a renewable energy internet, and a driverless mobility internet, all connected to the Internet of Things embedded across society and the environment. This 21st century smart digital infrastructure is giving rise to a radical new sharing economy that is transforming the way we manage, power and move economic life. But with climate change now ravaging the planet, it needs to happen fast. Change of this magnitude requires political will and a profound ideological shift.

Preckwinkle Launches Open Data Website
 
08:53
On Wednesday, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, joined by Cook County Board Commissioner John Fritchey and Cook County Chief Information Officer Greg Wass unveiled the County's new "Open Data" website today. The website is an important step in the President's continued efforts to bring transparency and accountability to County government by making more information more easily accessible to the public. "When I was sworn into office in December, I said that this is the time to open Cook County government to its citizens; to make County government work for its residents. This site puts those words into action," said Preckwinkle. "I know that the historic lack of transparency and accountability has eroded the legitimacy of Cook County government in many residents' eyes. Quite simply, a government that is transparent and accountable to its residents is a more effective government." In April 2011, President Preckwinkle and Commissioner Fritchey introduced a "Cook County Open Government Ordinance" designed to "increase transparency, accountability, and informed public participation" in Cook County. The ordinance, which passed the Board unanimously in May, requires Cook County agencies and elected officials to prepare open government plans, to develop data catalogs, and to post at least three "high value" datasets for the County website. The website is composed of over 75 data sets from more than 40 departments and agencies throughout the County. LINK: http://data.cookcountyil.gov Featured data sets include a Year-to-Date map of Foreclosures in Cook County and a Map of Outpatient Registrations with in the Cook County Health and Hospital System (CCHHS) -- the beginning of a more accurate look at who uses CCHHS resources. The data sets reflect the most up-to-date information available throughout the county, including offices of separately elected officials and CCHHS. The complete catalog of data sets can be found at http://datacatalog.cookcountyil.gov (this site can be accessed from the original web page as well). The data being published allows Cook County residents to use information as a tool to help measure government effectiveness and efficiency while providing citizens an opportunity to leverage the data towards civic-minded initiatives and applications. Cook County's Open Data site provides County residents with the opportunity to engage with their government and contribute their own feedback and ideas to the Open Data initiative. The site allows users to comment, rate and request additional datasets. Residents are also empowered to create their own unique maps and charts and they are free to share their contributions on social networks, or embed them on their community and personal blogs. "Data in a vacuum serves no functional purpose," said Preckwinkle. "It's time for an honest and open dialogue with the people of Cook County. And in order to do that, we need to lay all the facts out on the table -- and then allow everyone a seat at the table." The website was launched in conjunction with collaborative efforts between state and local governments, elected officials, civic-groups, and representatives of the technology and open data community. President Preckwinkle was also joined by Kathryn Auerbach, Director of Development and Communications at Metro Chicago Information Center (MCIC); Greg Sanders, Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP); Brett Goldstein, Chief Data Officer for the City of Chicago; Alya Adamany, Illinois Science & Technology Coalition; and Dan O'Neil, Director, Smart Chicago Collaborative; former EveryBlock.com co-founder.
