Euranova @GTC14

The GPU Technology Conference is one of those events where cutting-edge technology meets industrial players who are either see an opportunity to invest in the future trends or are able to match actual problems with the new abilities enabled by the technology. It is the place where the recent developments in the domain of GPU computing get presented, along with a showcase of all the challenges that the GPU technology has resolved so far. For a company such as EURA NOVA, this is the place where existing solutions meets new challenges that require innovation.

Big Data in Health Care

Data reuse in health care is a vast topic, one problematic being the anonymization of the data themselves. This is such a complex problem that it’s usually the one in the spotlights, but it is useful sometimes to remind ourselves why working out the data is needed. Let us imagine briefly that we have solved the matter and reflect only on the opportunities and solutions Big Data technologies bring.

SNIFF

CONTEXT

These past years the Graphics Processing Units have gained popularity and momentum in industrial research thanks to the parallel processing power (# of parallel core) that these offers for a reasonable price. The second reason behind this is their wide hardware availability in the consumer landscape: the sheer price cost of a GPU has favored their presence in most of the consumer devices nowadays, from mobile phones & tablets to video game systems.

The growing cultural cliff between people and companies

IS THE FUTURE OF BUSINESS TOTALLY HUMAN CENTRIC?

Young entrepreneurs

Today, we see a lot of young developers and designers that grew up with technologies, new social habits and a lot of new tools that did not exist for the previous generation (actually, a generation is no more than 10 years today!).
As a consequence, entrepreneurs in their early 20’s are creating and innovating using technical stacks they have known their whole life, unaware of the details of a CPU, who Turing was and what a methodology can bring to a development project. They just create and diffuse their ideas!
… and people consume their products, get new habits and change their way of viewing/judging things.

IEEE Big Data Santa Clara 2013

BigData2013

This week I was the second IEEE Big Data conference at Santa Clara for presenting our paper “A distributed approach for graph-oriented multidimensional analysis”.

This is now a tradition, I cannot attend a conference without giving you a short summary of the trends and interesting topics of the conference.

An empirical comparison of graph databases

In this blog post we briefly describe our new contribution to the big data domain, especially, graphDB benchmarking. This work was accepted for publication at 2013 ASE/IEEE International Conference on Big Data.

In this work, we presented a distributed graph database benchmarking framework. We used this tool to analyze the performance of four graph databases: Neo4j 1.9M05 , Titan 0.3, OrientDB 1.3 and DEX 4.7.

Smartphone-market

First let’s take a sneak peek at the smartphone market:

  • the LG G2  which should be the base for the next Google Nexus (5?).
  • the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the latest iteration of the well known Phablet.
  • the Sony Xperia Z1, the latest flagship from Sony with a massive camera (20,1 mégapixels F 2.0).
  • Apple’s iPhone 5C, a colorful iPhone 5 with a plastic shell.
  • Apple’s iPhone 5s, the first phone with a 64bit processor.
  • the Oppo N1, a Chinese smartphone that officially supports CyanogenMod, the popular Android alternative Rom.

OpenNebula Conference

Open-nebula

And then it’s over, 3 days at the 1st OpenNebula Conference! I took part in 18 talks, put my hands into OpenNebula core, met a lot of interesting people, enjoyed a really nice German dinner in the capital and filled my brain with tons of information and inspiration.

Hammer

This week I had the chance to attend the ASE/IEEE International conference on Big Data here in Washington DC. EURA NOVA’s presence has been highly remarked as we had two papers: imGraph (big up to @AldemarReynaga) and a paper presenting our empirical performance analysis on some of the major graph database on the current market.

DEXA, DaWaK 2013

I spent the last week at Prague, Czech Republic, to present my paper entitled “An Analytics-Aware Conceptual Model For Evolving Graphs”. More details on the paper could be found in my previous article.

In this post I will focus more on the trends, and share some of the lessons I learned during this nice travel.

The Dirty Dozen

the-dirty-dozen-1

While it’s not necessary to be dirty, this film tells us one clear thing: you’re stronger with a small team of specialists rather than with a big group of clones. More: you can achieve impossible missions.

We can observe this in innovation every time it comes to reach great, ambitious, disruptive business objectives. It’s a matter of mastering the market context, the behavior of the customers, the way value can be created, to go outside the standard tracks, to know the channels to reach your targets and to exploit every single advantage you have in front of your competitors, might it be in term of timing, vision or technology.

Brussels Cassandra Users

Cassandra

This last Tuesday EURA NOVA hosted an interesting Cassandra meetup. Several tech enthusiasts and Cassandra fans have met each other for two talks: I briefly introduced what are the challenges and potential solution when building a distributed graph layer on top of Cassandra, the second talk, presented by Ansar Rafique,  was a general introduction to Cassandra and some performance comparisons against MySQL. Ansar is a PhD student at the department of Computer Science of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven – Language technology and middleware taskforce (LANTAM) of the DistriNet research group. The talk presented the result of Ansar’s previous researches at Cinnober Financial Technology about factors influencing Read/Write operation in MySQL and Cassandra.
