Title of the talk: Building low-level software for high-level function
Abstract: First, in this talk, I will present a personal project designing an application and API for Google Glass. I did this work before I joined Google. Indeed, I sold my software system to a large Software Company. Later on, I joined Google.
In the second part of this talk, I will discuss managing global scope projects and the art and science of software development in and out of the Cloud. This is very germane for managing substantial global projects.
In the third part of this talk, I will connect the dots for global project management. In particular, I will discuss creating habits and feedback loops that enhance productivity. This will be focused on technical projects with technical details on how to leverage the global technological environment.

Title of the talk: You are under attack
Abstract: Either you’re under attack and you know it. Or you’re under attack and you don’t know it yet. Most organizations are breached within 24 hours, and attackers lurk in environment for more than a year before detection. As much of our daily interaction now takes place online, criminals increasingly seize the opportunity to launch cyber-attacks.
By 2022, the cybersecurity industry is expected to gross more than $232 billion globally. Cyber- attackers exploit people, processes, and technologies to steal high-value data. Their attacks are complex and costly, and they require rapid and comprehensive counter measures – which in turn require a workforce of great diversity. Demand for cybersecurity professionals is expected to rise to six million worldwide by 2019, with a projected shortfall of 1.5 million.
To withstand increasing and evolving cyber threats, organizations must understand the current and emerging landscape and systematically implement a holistic approach to cybersecurity. This keynote will offer real-world insights on helping global organizations manage cyber risk, recover from cyber-attacks, and mitigate future threats.

Title of the talk: Traffic Monitoring in Microsoft Azure Cloud
Abstract: Storing, viewing, and analyzing network flows in a Cloud environment is an important Virtualized Network Function (VNF) for Cloud tenants and users. It is used to store, track, and analyze traffic that belongs to Virtual Networks (VNETs), Virtual Machines (VMs), or Network Interfaces (NICs). It is used for logging ingress and egress IP traffic flows, number of bytes and packets transmitted and received, and network connections. Flow logging is critical for the investigation of firewall functionalities, security incidents, and threat detection. Moreover, it can be used for detecting connection and network anomalies such as connection outages, configuration changes, or malicious activities. Alerts can be fired for any suspicious network activities. Visualization of flows logs provides insights such as who is using a web-service or an application, when customers are logged in and out, and what are the geographical locations where connections are being initiated or terminated. In this Talk, we talk about a VNF in Azure Cloud that details the framework for logging network flows in a Cloud environment. The method aims at accommodating multiple and simulations Cloud tenants and enabling the logging of network flows while at the same time accommodates high incoming rates of flow events and data. One of the major benefits of this flow logging is that it supports high number of flows per second that facilitates flow logging of high traffic volumes. Not only customers can experience higher number of flows logged, but the flow logs are visualized and contain the number of packets and bytes transmitted and received for outbound and inbound flows, respectively.

Title of the talk: Internet of Things: Performance, Capacity, and Scalability Aspects
Abstract: According to an independent global survey of 800 CIOs, 74% of IT leaders are concerned that Internet of Things (IoT) performance problems could directly impact business operations and significantly damage revenues. IoT brings in a unique combination of challenges, including increased complexity, limited visibility, and data explosion. While IoT systems are very diverse and it is difficult to provide generic recommendations, in this session we will consider some typical issues and approaches for every stage of system's lifecycle – design, development, testing, and operations.

Title of the talk: Unfinished Gateways: Mobile & Wearable Devices In the ARCloud
Abstract: The world is becoming increasingly instrumented, modeled and represented digitally. The growth of IoT across urban and industrial landscapes, combined with emergence of augmented reality systems capable of representing those dataflows in real time against a fully modeled digital twin of the real world, represents a step change in how we can interact with the world and its data flows. How this is coming together, the progress and opportunities it presents for new areas of research and commercial growth will all be explored through the aperture of the mobile & wearable devices that make it all accessible. Specific topics will include the ARCloud, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision and hardware present & near future.

Title of the talk: Software Engineering for Machine Learning
Abstract: Software engineering is a well-established field with many best-practices. However, many of the best practices and methodologies of software engineering principles don’t apply to machine learning (ML) and data science. ML can be used to solve problems very different from that of software engineering. For example, rather than relying on human-designed specifications, ML can solve problems by merely seeing examples of solutions. This has huge implications throughout the software industry. Concepts such as software security, quality assurance, maintenance, and team organization need to be restructured in order to be applied to ML. This talk will explore some of the issues in designing software engineering for machine learning.
Founder, PreviewLabs Inc., USA
Bio: Bernard Near the end of 2009, Bernard decided to combine his passion for game design and game programming by starting the first company dedicated to the development of prototypes using game technology: PreviewLabs.
