Webinar: Accelerate data analytics with GPU & data story telling

We recently held a webinar “FAST DATA IN CRISIS WITH THE HELP OF GPU” and it was a smashing success (we had over 160 😮 attendees)! If you missed the webinar, you can re-watch it here: https://youtu.be/IbCeS-xzpo0

#Summary: Matej Misik gives a brief intro into the #database world, and why we even contemplated using graphical cards or #GPU for high-performance computing in a joint research project with the Slovak Technical University (resulting in www.qikk.ly). David Lazar then asks a couple questions and hands over to Martin Zahumensky who covers why we need to move away from #BI to #DataStoryTelling. He does so on an example of an Ironman dataset and then the Covid crises, highlighting why we built www.tellstory.cloud.

In the webinar you will learn about high performance computing with GPU (graphical cards) and how to present data with a rich Covid-19 data story example. We discuss why and how we created qikkDB (our GPU accelerated columnar database) and what all this shift from BI to data story telling is all about (and how TellStory helps with this trend).

Enjoy & share your thoughts with our speakers so they can continue to grow!
