About the talks:

* Property Graph and Graph Analytics on top of a key-value store to analyze data from Meetup.com *

Social media data such as those from Meetup.com can very efficiently represented as graph with properties assigned to vertices and edges. This gives the opportunity to use graph algorithms for the analysis of these data. The purpose of this session is to show how to build a graph from Meetup.com data and how to use an In-Memory Graph Analytics Framework to analyze the graph in order to (1) find influencers for certain topics in different locations or (2) identify hot topics people are interested in most and more. For the demo part I´m using Oracle´s Big Data Lite VM 4.11 as environment, RStudio / R Notebook for data extraction and transformation as well as PGX and PGQL. All scripts are reproducible once the user has at least a Meetup REST API Key and are shared via Github.

* Hear How You Like To Hear *
The interplay of Tech, Arts, Science and Participation for product development.

* AI and Machine Learning as a tool for customizing a learning process *
Reimagining the future of education. How can we use AI and ML algorithms to customize the education process and to address the differences of each learner? How should the classroom of the future look like in order to take into consideration the individual needs of each student, as well as the future skills needed
to survive in the AI-enabled world where most of the jobs will be automated and new ones will be created? In my short speech, I would like to address the most important points regarding the future of work and future of AI-enabled inclusive education.
