Predicting Driver Behavior with Big Data Analytics by Marshall Presser and Bjorn Boe

Video from DevIgnition 2014 - Elephant Talk! See for details.

Managing risk is at the heart of the insurance industry. In this talk, we'll solve the problem of assessing driver behavior with a case study using Telematic data processed with Python, Java, Map/Reduce, SQL on Hadoop (HAWQ), Redis, and Cloud Foundry to assist an insurance company in mapping trips by their policy holders and using that data to predict driver behavior. The audience should have a basic understanding of Hadoop
