Presentation Description

As technology advancements create an explosion of human data — millions of tweets, hours of video, and patterns every day — a new universe is emerging. Todd Mostak, the CEO & Founder at MapD, will reveal how to explore and visualize this data in transformative ways. How? Using GPUs, the gaming technology poised to massively improve industries at scale by providing instantaneous data visualization and real-time analytics.

Primary Speaker Bio
Todd Mostak is the founder and CEO of MapD, a pioneer in building GPU-tuned analytics and visualization applications for the enterprise. Todd conceived of the idea of using GPUs to accelerate the extraction of insights from large datasets while conducting his Harvard Graduate research on the role of Twitter in the Arab Spring. Frustrated by the capabilities of conventional technologies to allow for the interactive exploration of these multi-million row datasets, Todd built one of the first GPU-based databases. Upon completion of his studies at Harvard, Todd joined MIT as a research fellow at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, focusing on GPU databases and visualization before founding the company in late 2013. Todd received his undergraduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Economics and Anthropology.
