Event: DSRP Seminar - Data Warehousing and Analytics
Date: 19 February 2020
Time: 12:00 (noon)
Venue: Communications Lab, Faculty of ICT (Room 1, Level 0, Block B), University of Malta, Msida
Building a data warehouse and maintaining it is not an easy feat. In order to design a proper data warehouse, one has to understand the data underlying the structure, as well as the question or problem that needs to be answered. When one fails to do so, this can be catastrophic for a business that is heavily dependent on its data.
In his presentation Andrew Sammut will be discussing the best practices for designing data warehouses on the cloud, as well as providing solutions for some common challenges. He will demonstrate how DAX measures can be used in PowerBI to analyse and create models using the underlying data. Further to this, he will be demonstrating how AI models can be deployed on the cloud stack to be used for modelling purposes. This includes the comparison of different AI models used for time series forecasting including ARIMA, neural networks and decision trees.
The Data Science Research Group (DSRP) at the University of Malta conducts research in the interdisciplinary field of data science. The scope of the group is to use signal processing, machine learning and statistics to develop innovative techniques and to extract useful knowledge from various data sources in an effective manner to benefit the wider public.
