Workshop in Biostatistics

M112 Alway Building, Medical Center

(next to the Dean's courtyard)

DATE: June 1, 2017
TIME: 1:30 - 2:50 pm
TITLE: Towards 99% Availability via Intelligent Real-Time Alerting
SPEAKER: Franziska Bell
Data Science Manager, Uber


Franziska Bell leads the Intelligent Decision Systems team at Uber, which focuses on developing new models for real-time outage and outlier detection. Since joining Uber in late 2014, these models have broken new ground in detection accuracy and speed whilst being sufficiently computationally tractable to be applied to 100,000s of time series in real-time. Before Uber, Franziska was a Postdoc at Caltech where she developed a novel, highly accurate approximate quantum molecular dynamics theory to calculate chemical reactions for large, complex systems, such as enzymes. Franziska earned her Ph.D. in theoretical chemistry from UC Berkeley focusing on developing highly accurate, yet computationally efficient approaches which helped unravel the mechanism of non-silicon-based solar cells and properties of organic conductors.
