Originally recorded April 2, 2014. NOTE: Video cuts-off at 18:43. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Many businesses are still relying on the promise of legacy disk-based databases for Big Data, but are discovering they are unable to deliver the performance and scalability needed. On the other hand, in-memory technology is being adopted by savvy businesses, enabling them to make better data-driven decisions with real-time analytics, accelerate application performance, and discover competitive advantages. In this webcast, we will look at the benefits of in-memory technology and the business value it brings. Attendees will also have a chance to see the speed, scale, and simplicity of MemSQL's in-memory solution, and why it is evolving the database landscape. What will be discussed? Real time big data challenges and why legacy database solutions aren't solving them. Use cases where in-memory technology makes the biggest impact. How customers today are using in-memory databases to solve Big Data problems. The speed, scale and simplicity of MemSQL's in-memory database platform (with a live demo). How to get started with in-memory technology. About Mark LaRosa: Mark LaRosa is Director of Sales Engineering for MemSQL, where he ensures that MemSQL's partners are able to exceed their goals for real-time analytics and big data management projects.

Google Tech Talks June 16, 2008 ABSTRACT Explore the brain's amazing ability to change throughout a person's life. This phenomenon—called neuroplasticty—is the science behind brain fitness, and it has been called one of the most extraordinary scientific discoveries of the 20th century. PBS had recently aired this special, The Brain Fitness Program, which explains the brain's complexities in a way that both scientists and people with no scientific background can appreciate. This is opportunity to learn more about how our minds work—and to find out more about the latest in cutting-edge brain research, from the founder of Posit Science and creator of the Brain Fitness Program software, Dr. Michael Merzenich. Speaker: Dr. Michael Merzenich, Ph.D. Michael M. Merzenich, PhD: Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Merzenich leads the company's scientific team. For more than three decades, Dr. Merzenich has been a leading pioneer in brain plasticity research. He is the Francis A. Sooy Professor at the Keck Center for Integrative Neurosciences at UCSF. Dr. Merzenich is a member of the National Academy of Sciences. He is the recipient of numerous awards and prizes, including the Ipsen Prize, Zulch Prize of the Max Planck Institute, Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award and Purkinje Medal. Dr. Merzenich has published more than 200 articles, including many in leading peer-reviewed journals, such as Science and Nature. His work is also often covered in the popular press, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Time and Newsweek. He has appeared on Sixty Minutes II, CBS Evening News and Good Morning America. In the late 1980s, Dr. Merzenich was on the team that invented the cochlear implant, now distributed by market leader Advanced Bionics. In 1996, Dr. Merzenich was the founding CEO of Scientific Learning Corporation (Nasdaq: SCIL), which markets and distributes software that applies principles of brain plasticity to assist children with language learning and reading. He is an inventor on more than 50 patents. Dr. Merzenich earned his BS degree at the University of Portland and his PhD at Johns Hopkins.

Alistair Croll talks about his upcoming book, "Lean Analytics" The Lean movement has revolutionized how we create products and companies. It focuses on customer development, tackles the risky parts first, and focuses on finding real, unmet needs. At the core of this is iteration—a cycle of learning and adapting that's driven by data. Lean Analytics gives you blunt, practical advice and proven approaches for learning from the abundance of data all around you. This book is about analytics, done right: lean, mean, and iteratively. Filled with behind-the-scenes case studies and day-one tools, it's an essential ingredient for any smart startup. In 2010, Alistair and Ben were two of the co-founders of Year One Labs, an early stage accelerator that provided funding and up to 1-year of hands-on mentorship to 5 startups. Year One Labs followed a Lean Startup program, making it the first accelerator to formalize such a structure. Three of five companies graduated from Year One Labs and went on to raise follow-on financing. A great deal of their experience and thought leadership around Lean Startup and analytics emerged during this time. Alistair has been an entrepreneur, author, and public speaker for nearly 20 years. He's worked on a variety of topics, from web performance, to big data, to cloud computing, to startups in that time. www.leananalyticsbook.com
