We were all doing it wrong— the bridge from 'data' to 'decisions' should be built decision first.
Data Science and Analytics have a "last mile" problem— decision makers don't find it easy to convert the predictions and insights into action. Much of the innovation so far has been on the data side, such as Big Data science, predictive analytics, machine learning, dashboarding, visualization and executive self-service. These attempts will continue to have the "last mile" problem of executive apathy and underuse. For all the buzz, executives are not going to become data scientists for another generation of leaders, if ever. In this talk, Gaurav Rastogi outlines how the right way to bridge data and decisions is to start with decisions first. By first focusing on decisions and the decision making experience, the full impact of analytics can be experienced in today's corporate environment. He will talk about how "Decision Engineering" is the way of the future.

Why the graph representation is key to effectively analyze and act on your data
To get the most value from your Big data, one must have the ability to work with your data in high dimensions and act on the data in real time. While some domains are naturally high dimensional (e.g. text, images), in others, high dimensionality comes from extracting relationships between entities in your data. Beyond the extraction of high dimensional features, graphs also make a variety of high dimensional supervised and unsupervised analysis possible (e.g. pattern mining, clustering, etc.) that allow you to gather powerful insights from your data. We will demonstrate this power from a list of challenging real-world applications from the e-commerce, advertising, and financial industries.
