Here are what we think you should be looking out for in the Data & Disruptive Tech track at #DMWF North America on the 11 – 12 September in New York at the Brooklyn Expo Center.

Day one will see Google’s solo session ‘Best Practices for Securing Your Site’.  With new threats constantly emerging, how can website owners protect themselves and their business? In this session Aurora Morales, Search Outreach Specialist at Google, will cover this crucial topic for SEOs and share several demos of these threats, plus how they can be prevented. Find out what Google is seeing in hacking trends, Google’s view on what HTTPS does (and doesn’t do), and how to best address a hacked site. Attendees will learn how to protect against SQL injection attacks, sanitize user generated input, and come away with other practical tips that can immediately be implemented to secure their sites.

We’re also excited to see John Hickey, Channel Marketing Manager at Castrol as he hosts the session ‘Embracing VR to Connect with the Future Customer’. Find out how Castrol used VR to engage with evolving  customer and the opportunities innovation creates with product placement, customer journeys and brand awareness!

And from VR to AI! 

Make sure you try and see
Mobilewalla’s session ‘Algorithm vs. Data: What every executive should know before implementing AI’, presented by Anindya Datta, CEO and Founder! 

Ai has become a cornerstone of digital transformation in business and industry and is a powerful tool in the marketer’s arsenal. While many feel that the power of AI derives from the algorithms or techniques used to implement learning and modeling, the nature of the data used to train AI algorithms, specifically it’s quality, depth and breadth, impact outcomes far more than the technique itself. This session will explain this in detail using common marketing and business use cases and real-world case studies. You’ll increase your understanding of AI fundamentals and leave with knowledge that will positively impact your predictive modeling activities.
