Dec 05, 2017

The StreamAnalytix team from Impetus will share insights on choosing the right anomaly detection techniques and demonstrate real-world use cases for finding variances in network traffic and financial transactions.

LOS GATOS, Calif. Nov. xx, 2017 – Impetus Technologies, a big data software products and services  company, today announced that it will host a complimentary meetup “Anomaly Detection Techniques and Implementation Using Apache Spark” on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 from 6-8 p.m. Pacific time at the Larkspur Landing Hotel in Milpitas, Calif. Space is limited and interested data scientists, developers and information technology (IT) professionals are asked to reserve a seat at the complimentary event by emailing events@impetus.com.

Apache Spark is fast becoming the de facto choice for stream processing, real-time analytics, data science and machine learning applications. Organizations across industries are embracing the ability it gives them to act on data in as it originates in real-time.

The meetup will open with Maxim Shkarayev, lead data scientist at Impetus and Anand Venugopal, head of StreamAnalytix at Impetus, who will provide a summary of anomaly-detection techniques that can be used to solve various industry problems using multiple data types. Punit Shah, also from the StreamAnalytix product team at Impetus, will then demonstrate real-world anomaly detection use cases on Apache Spark that show how some of the world’s leading organizations use StreamAnalytix - an open-source enabled, enterprise-grade multi-engine stream processing and machine learning platform - to discover and act on outliers in network traffic and financial transactions.

“The ability to detect anomalies can be incredibly valuable across different industry verticals. Imagine being able to predict an aircraft failure or an impending disease, identifying fraudulent behavior, or catching and preventing risky trades in the stock market,” said Venugopal. “Spark-based applications make it possible to detect anomalous patterns in real-time and streaming data. This meetup will show how to identify such anomalies and act on them for business benefit.”
