Dr. Vesa Siivola - Stream Processing at Rovio: Where we are now / Where we would like to be at

  

Abstract:
This talk is about the journey from daily batch-based data processing
towards streaming data at Rovio. We first do an overview of our
analytics pipeline before going into more detail about the current
applications of stream processing. The topics include real time
monitoring, user anonymization, customization of user experience in
games and attribution for user acquisition. There are also a number of
areas where we should see benefits from using stream processing. We
will briefly look at what needs to be solved for graph processing of
identifiers, anomaly detection, machine learning and prediction (e.g,
churning, lifetime value estimation and app install propensity) to get
there.
