Sensors are the future of distributed data. General-purpose computing is dissipating out into the environment and becoming increasingly invisible and embedded into our lives. We will soon begin to move in a sea of data, our movements tracked and our environments measured and adjusted to our preferences, without need for direct intervention.

At the Strata Conference in New York last year, we gave attendees a taste of the super-connected world that's ahead of all of us by instrumenting the conference environment with basic off-the-shelf sensors and mesh networking. At the Strata Conference in Santa Clara this February, we will observe and report on the conference once again, with more sensors, real-time visualization, and some new interactive features for attendees.

Some of the most complex challenges in data management exist where you may least suspect: inside video games. In the past decade the audience for games has exploded from 200M active users to 1.5B gamers worldwide. And these gamers are playing on multiple platforms -- high definition consoles, PCs, social media, mobile, online -- and they expect a seamless experience that connects them all. Consumers are becoming accustomed to features that allow them to play against their friends, track their progress, and even be able to turn off their console game and pick up where they left off on another platform like a smartphone.

Much like other forms of media, playing a video game used to be linear -- you insert the disc and play the game. Now, new content can be purchased and downloaded to augment the experience, consumers can connect and play against friends online and you can track your progress and scores live over time. But these rich experiences mean an explosion in the amount of data that can really be a double-edged sword. To keep at the pace of consumer demand for online connected gaming experiences, EA's data scientists are building a new technology infrastructure that will improve the consumer experience and help the company analyze the hundreds of terabytes of consumer data that flow through the system each day.

In this talk, EA CTO Rajat Taneja will dive in to the challenges and complexities facing the gaming industry, how to harness the power of data and share examples of how technologies like machine learning and predictive analytics have been put in place to improve the customer experience.

The excitement about Big Data is not around the data volumes or variety or velocity. The excitement stems from the results—the impact on revenue, the decrease in costs, the Big gains in competitive advantage that are the result of using Hadoop and HBase across applications and industries. This keynote will provide insights into how the combination of scale, efficiency, and analytic flexibility creates the power to expand the applications for Hadoop to transform companies as well as entire industries.

Mobile is already changing everything about the way we access information, and we've only begun to experience the impact of the smart devices revolution. Mobile analytics is also very different from web product analytics. With a variety of screen sizes, operating systems, and many other features, the "mobile platform" is in fact a multitude of distinct platforms. How do we recognize and even benefit from this richness and heterogeneity to create amazing products our users will love? Data science for consumer internet products relies on our ability to effectively analyze and understand ubiquitous computing in terms of a holistic product experience, as individuals consume and create data on mobile and desktop devices in their day-to-day lives. I'll talk about mobile data science challenges — from product development to data-driven decision making.

More than ever before, students are using the Internet to study, leaving behind a trail of valuable data. How can we leverage this data to improve education? Learning analytics focused on tracking student activity and performance provides strong insights, but the bigger opportunity is to "close-the-loop" and use the data for the student's benefit. With Gooru (www.goorulearning.org), a free search engine for learning, we can see what web resources are the most popular, what topics students are looking to study, how much time students are spending studying specific resources and the corresponding learning outcome. With this data, we can deliver personalized learning on a scale that can honor the human right to education.

The complexity of decision sciences in a global marketplace is a daunting challenge multi-national brands and organizations have to grapple with. The much talked about information explosion has been uneven geographically. Availability of actionable information and policy surrounding use of this data varies considerably across continents and emerging economies. As practitioners, our ability to develop and deploy information based strategies across markets has been inconsistent, and will continue to be so in the near future. In this key note, we will explore some of the challenges of big data operating in a truly global context.

Recently we have begun to see the emergence of a new online data challenge—that of the "Broad data" that emerges from millions and millions of raw datasets available on the World Wide Web. For broad data the new challenges that emerge include Web-scale data search and discovery, rapid and potentially ad hoc integration of datasets, visualization and analysis of only-partially modeled datasets, and issues relating to the policies for data use, reuse and combination. In this talk, we present the broad data challenge and discuss potential starting points for solutions. We illustrate these approaches using data from a "meta-catalog" of over 1,000,000 open datasets that have been collected from about two hundred governments from around the world.

There's been a huge amount of progress in recent years in developing distributed systems that are resilient to all sorts of faults. However, there's one critical category of errors that has largely been ignored: human error. The scope and potential impact of human error is massive: deployed bugs, accidentally deleting data, accidentally DDOS'ng important internal services, and so on. Designing for human fault-tolerance leads to important conclusions on the fundamental ways data systems should be architected.

As big data makes inroads into all aspects of society, how governments regard the technology will be critical for its success. If the past is a guide, the state will embrace big data for its own uses (both good and ill). It will recognize that its authority is threatened and lash out. And government will try to place big data under the yoke of regulatory control. The talk will build on ideas outlined in the new book "Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think" (with Viktor Mayer-Schönberger) to explain where the choke points are—and how to keep big data free from governments' grip.

Nerds crash the gates of a venerable American institution, shoving aside its so-called wise men and replacing them with a radical new data-driven order. We've seen it in sports, and now in The Victory Lab- which Politico has described as "Moneyball for politics"- Sasha Issenberg tells the hidden story of the analytical revolution upending the way political campaigns are run in the 21st century. The Victory Lab follows the renegade academics and maverick operatives rocking the war room and re-engineering a high-stakes industry previously run on little more than gut instinct and outdated assumptions. Armed with insights from behavioral psychology and randomized experiments that treat voters as unwitting guinea pigs -and reams of new individual-level data fed into microtargeting algorithms-the smartest campaigns now believe they know who you will vote for even before you do. The Victory Lab presents a secret history of modern American politics, pulling back the curtain on the tactics and strategies used by some of the era's most important figures-including Barack Obama and Mitt Romney-with iconoclastic insights into human decision-making, marketing and how analytics can put any business on the road to victory.

At Strata 2012 in New York, we discussed the hazards of curbing big data inferences by defining a new category of thoughtcrime. After all, acting on thoughts might constitute a crime, but thoughts, in isolation, cannot be criminal. It's time to go deeper. Let's create and evaluate a predictive criminal model that highlights where the sensitivities lie, both technically and ethically.
