Atigeo Chief Technology Officer and Principal Lead Engineer to Present at Spark Summit in New York


BELLEVUE, Wash. – Jan. 19, 2016 – ATIGEO™, a compassionate technology company and developer of the xPatterns® big data analytics platform will be presenting at SPARK SUMMIT EAST, the largest big data event dedicated to Apache Spark, taking place at the New York Hilton Midtown Feb. 16 - 18. David Talby, chief technology officer at Atigeo, and Cladiu Branzan, principal lead engineer at Atigeo, will provide a live demonstration and discussion on Online Predictive Modeling of Fraud Schemes from Multiple Live Streams during the data science track on Feb. 17.

Fraud detection is challenging given the chameleon-like nature of skilled data attackers; as soon as an automated system successfully learns to stop one scheme, attackers learn and adopt a different approach. This session will cover key learnings developed by the speakers while building real-world software systems and will be beneficial for anyone interested in adversarial learning, hybrid analytics and online learning at scale on top of Apache Spark.

Talby and Branzan have more than 25 years combined experience in engineering and data science, with deep practical experience in Apache Spark. Talby holds multiple advanced degrees including a Ph.D. in computer science and a master’s in business administration and has led engineering teams at Microsoft, Amazon and now Atigeo. Branzan is a developer and architect with over 10 years’ experience in the banking, e-commerce, and healthcare industries and holds a master’s degree in industrial intelligent systems. He currently builds, secures, and operates multiple data-driven applications in the cloud for Atigeo.

The presentation from Atigeo will take place on Wed., Feb. 17, at 4:35 p.m. in the Sutton North room at the New York Hilton Midtown. Following the presentation, demo datasets and code will be publicly available to attendees.
