   - Title: Cloud based systems and challenges for data rich research
   workloads, Vani Mandava (Director of Data Science, Microsoft Research)
   - Abstract: In this talk we show a glimpse of typical research
   topologies across hundreds of research projects over the past few years
   that leveraged platform services and data systems in the cloud. We then
   look at a few case studies that dive into specific techniques that
   researchers have used to distribute and efficiently process different types
   of data using diverse data architecture and storage mechanisms, in domains
   such as genomics, smart cities, healthcare, and education among others.
   Finally, we explore the hard challenges in this space, and some recent and
   upcoming innovations.
   - Speaker: Vani Mandava is a Director of Data Science at Microsoft
   Research at Redmond with over a decade of experience designing and shipping
   software that in use by millions of users across the world. She is
   passionate about enabling academic researchers and institutions develop
   technologies that fuel data-intensive scientific research using advanced
   techniques in data management, data mining, especially leveraging Microsoft
   cloud and AI platform. She has enabled the adoption of data mining best
   practices in various v1 products across Microsoft client, server and
   services in Office, Sharepoint and Online Services (Bing Ads)
   organizations, co-authored a book ‘Developing Solutions with Infopath’, and
   hold patents in online services architecture. She co-chaired KDD Cup 2013
   and partners with many academic and government agencies including NSF
   funded Big Data Innovation hub effort, a consortium coordinated by top US
   data scientists and expected to advance data-driven innovation nationally
   in the US.
