Rethinking Cloud: Designing the Right Cloud-App Strategies to Win Customers

Today's business is where the digital customer is, and enterprises must go the extra mile to create contextual, online user journeys for their customers. Data about every click, like, view, and share can be the catalyst for creating better offerings. Cloud-native solutions around Internet-of-Things (IoT) and blockchain need massive processing capability churning large volumes of data. Real-time data gathered from every device is essential to enhance product performance, and the need is to shift from data centers, to putting 'data at the center'.

AI Can Ensure The News You Read Is Real

AI Can Ensure The News You Read Is Real

Credit the pursuits of biomedical engineers for developing a microscope called 'SCAPE' (Swept Confocally Aligned Planar Excitation) that can not only view groups of neurons in a living brain; it can do so while the person is busy engaged in an activity. With this innovation, scientists hope to get a deeper understanding into what fuels the brain of a human. We can also hope that SCAPE will help scientist come closer to understanding human 'thought' and decision-making. I find it fitting that this kind of scientific achievement is happening in tandem with the development of machine learning.

That's why I was surprised by the latest scourge of 'fake news' on the Internet, which is largely going undetected. People who get their news from social media sites and not traditional newspapers or television networks are particularly susceptible to fake news. That's because people often don't realize that what appears on social media may not be legitimate news. These social media sites have legions of followers but do not take responsibility for the fake news they disseminate. No platform is telling its users: Don't tune into our site, and why would they, after all their less-then-scrupulous practices are bringing them heavy traffic. Thus far, these social media platforms have not been held accountable for promoting fake news.

Robots will fly planes, and humans won't be redundant

PodcastMeet Locksher Lomes and Dr. Watts for a gripping perspective on the topic

The rapid convergence of operational and information technologies is decisively transforming the world of industrial production, often referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Consider the huge robotic arms in a decades-old manufacturing plant. Until recently, each arm was managed by a computer and did a simple precise pick and place task. No more. Now, thanks to plant-wide technological improvements, these robotic arms can all be connected to each other and work in tandem, completing a larger number of manufacturing tasks intelligently. To be sure, manufacturing enterprises are always learning to adapt to technological trends. But it is also a capital-intensive industry, with long life-cycles for processes. The industry is testing the promises of the Fourth Industrial Revolution where newer technology integrates with the aging infrastructure of a manufacturing facility.

It is interesting to note that in a recent survey that Infosys commissioned on AI adoption across industries, 29% of the nearly 275 respondents, in the manufacturing sector, confirmed that AI technologies have been fully deployed in their organizations, and these are also delivering up to expectations. 40% of the respondents viewed AI as being fundamental to the success of the organizations strategy.
