Marina Pantcheva: Street lamps, wind speed and babies: a polyglot’s journey to Big Data
Big Data is said to be the new oil, fueling machine learning and artificial intelligence … and equally so human intelligence.
In this inspirational talk, Marina describes her work with big data – work that she, for good reasons, never thought she’d be doing. Drawing examples from a dynamic data system that involves the notoriously unpredictable human element, Marina shows us how we can tease out patterns and connections which help us learn and make better – and more intelligent – decisions.

Looking beyond traditional operational metrics or market expansion strategies, I will share examples that demonstrate the negative impact of poor localisation on the business competitiveness, product quality and user experience and how to avoid them. Strategic evangelisation, developer enablement and business alignment guarantee successful localisation setup and subsequently successful global expansion.
