Are You Seeing DOTS? - Data Ownership and Transparent Surveillance View Keynote: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. View Keynote: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regulatory scrutiny and increasing consumer lack of trust in technology in general.

[slides] #CognitiveComputing | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #MachineLearning

What Is the Business Imperative for Cognitive Computing? Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & Associates, Inc., put cognitive computing into perspective with its value to the business. The session detailed what it takes to build a cognitive application and the types of solutions that are the best fit for this data-driven approach. Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Speaker Bio Judith S.

The #IoT: How to Handle All This Data | @ThingsExpo #BigData #IIoT #M2M

IoT: How to Handle All This Data ‘Power Panel Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deliver the analytics that add value.

You Are the Network | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #IIoT #M2M #API #DX #AI

First there was the Stone Age. Then we learned how to manipulate and smelt metals, which led to an Agrarian age. From there, machines helped bring about the Industrial age, then the Space Age. So where are we now? Shall We Call It the Network Age? Metcalfe's Law holds that the value of a connected network, telecommunications in the parlance of his day, is proportional to the square of the number of connected users. Or stated more simply, the utility of a connected ‘thing' increases as more and more ‘things' are connected. The telephone acts as an easy example. One phone by itself is a paperweight, but one million connected to the same network is immeasurably powerful. We live in a day of increasing connectivity. Think back to just a few years before the ubiquitousness of the Internet. How did we look up information? A phonebook for a phone number? An encyclopedia for ... (more)

Identifying Where and How to Start the Big Data Journey | @BigDataExpo #BigData #DataLake #Analytics

Decisions Exercise: Identifying Where and How to Start the Big Data Journey The recent deluge of rains in Northern California have flooded streets, brought down trees and plugged storm sewers.  As I was trying to make my way around the neighborhood, I thought of a classroom exercise to help my MBA students to identify the use cases upon which they could focus data and analytics.  In this exercise, I’m going to ask my students to pretend that they have been hired by the city to “Optimize Street Maintenance” after these rainstorms. In particular, the students need to address the following questions: Where and how do you start to address this initiative? What data might you need to support this initiative? These are classic questions that I hear all the time when I meet with clients about their big data journeys.  Let’s walk through how I’ll teach my students to addres... (more)

The Hotel California of #AI | @CloudExpo @ReneBuest #ArtificialIntelligence

In 1977, the Eagles released "Hotel California", a song about drugs and the effects an addiction has on people. Putting "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device" in the context of our digital lifestyle today we find a lot of truth. There is a reason why Google provides most of its services for free or why Amazon wants us to have an Echo in every home or why Facebook has become our directory of "friends." What looks pretty convenient is a threat. It is a threat to the end consumers but also a threat to the established economy. And even if we have the choice to check out any time - we will never leave. The Feast of the Beasts After already two decades, the Internet giants - speaking of Amazon, Google, Facebook, Alibaba and Baidu - are still collecting tons of data, filling their databases with information of everyone's knowledge, opinions, recommendations,...

The Disruptor That Needs Disrupting | @CloudExpo #IoT #M2M #Cloud #DigitalTransformation

The Disruptor That Needs Disrupting By Greg Lord Many people mistakenly believe that Al Gore invented the Internet, but in reality it was Tim Berners-Lee. He created URIs, HTTP, HTML, and the first web browser - all critical building blocks that paved the way for the Internet to operate as the ubiquitous, decentralized network for sharing information that we take for granted today. As a result of his contributions to society, it was recently announced that Tim Berners-Lee has been awarded the prestigious Turing Award. Side note: The A.M. Turing Award is the heavyweight of all computer science-related awards, intended to recognize "an individual selected for contributions of a technical nature made to the computing community". This is an understated way of saying "people who have done something really awesome" in the realm of computer science. For anyone who is famil... (more)
