I was not able to get to the Nuix User Exchange 2014, but the power of video brings some of it, at least, to my desk.
Eddie Sheehy began his talk with an object lesson in taking selfies – it is probably best, he says, to avoid showing the guns, the money, the drugs and the GPS coordinates of the crack house.
He achieves a good double here – not just getting his talk off with a laugh from the audience but doing so with something actually relevant to what is coming later in the agenda – finding the bad guys through the use of the data they create.
Not only has data grown, Eddie says; the iPhone 6 has 130 times the processing power of the Fujitsu AP1000 on which the Nuix Head of Development, David Sitsky, honed his parallel processing skills.
Stephen Stewart has an enviable ability to talk in a way which combines lucidity and entertainment. His talk, and indeed the whole User Exchange, was aimed at the users – “the people who touch the keys on a day-to-day basis” as he put it.
For those of us who were not at Huntington Beach, these videos captures what was said.
