Danny Yuan

Software Engineer, Uber

 

This talk will discuss how stream processing is used in Uber's realtime system to solve a wide range of problems, including but not limited to revealing and visualizing dynamics of Uber's marketplace, performing complex computation on geospatial temporal data, and extracting patterns from data streams. This talk will also present the architecture of the stream processing pipeline with a focus on how and why the architecture has evolved into its current form.

Section Leader Analysis and Design, CERN

Understanding the computing for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN

The physics community at CERN analyses since many decades large volumes of physics data.
More recently statistical methods and machine learning are also applied to computing infrastructure metrics to better understand and optimise the complex and distributed computing systems used for the Large Hadron Collider.
This presentation will give an overview of established and new techniques and tools for supporting these analysis activities.

Bio

Dirk Duellmann leads the Analytics and Development section of CERN's Storage group. He is responsible for the design and evolution of CERN's high performance disk pools for physics data analysis and he chairs the working group for Infrastructure Analytics of CERN's IT department. Previously he lead the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) projects for persistency framework development and for distributed database deployment.

Dirk joined CERN in 1995 after receiving a PhD in High Energy Physics from the University of Hamburg. Before he worked in several software companies on the development of database management systems and applications.

We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media.
