Hype Cycle for Web Computing, 2013 - Big Data

Hype Cycle for Web Computing, 2013 - Big Data | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it

"Big data is high volume, velocity and variety information assets that demand cost-effective, innovative forms of information processing for enhanced insight and decision making."

 

"Big data is almost at the Peak of Inflated Expectations. It will become an embedded and state-of-the-art practice by 2018, and it is more likely that big data management and analysis approaches will be incorporated into a variety of existing solutions in existing markets"

 

"There are three principal aspects to big data — success will be limited unless all are addressed. The quantitative aspects of big data generally do not emerge one by one. Volume, variety and velocity most often occur together. The second aspect is that innovation must be cost-effective both in costs to deploy and maintain and in terms of time to delivery — solutions that arrive too late are useless, regardless of cost.

 

Finally, the focus must be on increased insight by the business into process optimization from immediate automation through the development of completely new business models. Big data permits greater analysis of all available data, detecting even the smallest details of the information corpus — a precursor to effective insight and discovery."

Jocelyn Teague's insight:

The Graphic displayed shows that Big data is at the height of IT trends in 2013, which are predicted to plateau in "5-10 years". Big data will be common and manageable within this 5- 10 year time span.

 

- A selection of paragraphs have been taken from the original text to provide an overview and time span of Big data.

Intel takes 'significant' stake in Big Data startup Cloudera - Reuters | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it

SAN FRANCISCO Thu Mar 27, 2014 2:10pm EDT

 

" Intel Corp said on Thursday it made a significant investment in Cloudera and will make the fast-growing startup its preferred distributor of software for crunching Big Data."

"Big Data is also a key part of the Internet of Things, a term referring to the increasing connectivity of everyday devices from cars to smoke alarms.

Finding ways to analyze and make use of vast amounts of data collected by those smart devices is becoming a major opportunity for IT companies including Intel."

Jocelyn Teague's insight:

Large companies such as Intel are investing in the future of big data.

 

Big data is one of the current technology trends which will be significant for technology in the next 5-10 years. Another of these technologies is "the Internet of things" also known as the web of things.  These two technologies will be used together to create and analyse the data of the future.

The Internet of Things [INFOGRAPHIC] - Cisco | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it

"When we think of being connected to the Internet, our minds immediately shift to our computers, phones, and most recently tablets....

That’s right. There are more devices tapping into the Internet than people on Earth to use them. How is this possible?

The infographic below provides a visual representation of the increase in “things” connected to the Internet. With this increase, how will you prepare your network for the future??"

Priority Matrix for Imaging and Print Services, 2013

Priority Matrix for Imaging and Print Services, 2013 | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it

"3D bioprinting is a medical application of 3D printers to produce living tissue and organs. It is a system directed by medical imaging data and software that specifies the design of living tissue and organs, plus the printing device to create a functioning human organ from an individual's own or other cells."

"Although this area falls more into the realm of major emerging technologies and life science or biomedical developments, as opposed to "classic" healthcare IT, it illustrates the continuing significance of IT's application to the transformation of medicine. Uses like this are still far in the future. "

Jocelyn Teague's insight:

This Graphic shows that 3D Bioprinting is 5-10 years away from being medically implemented. Such organs are still in the prototype phase. Whilst this technology wont have a great market penetration "Less than 1% target audience", the impact on medical science and peoples lives will be "transformation"

Autonomous Vehicles

Autonomous Vehicles | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it

"Key challenges for the realization of autonomous vehicles aren't limited to cost reductions for the technology, but they increasingly include legal considerations, such as liability and driver-related aspects. For example, can an intoxicated driver use an autonomous vehicle? Can children use a self-driving vehicle?

First applications of autonomous vehicles will occur during this decade, and early examples might be limited to specific road and driving scenarios. In 2013, autonomous vehicle projects and tests are increasing as automakers, suppliers and technology companies continue to invest in this area."

Jocelyn Teague's insight:

Autonomous vehicles are still in the early stages of mainstream integration. Challenges for this technology wont be the technical automation side but rather the legal and legislation aspect. New laws will have to be created across the globe before integration and acceptance from society can begin.

 

Autonomous vehicles are 5-10 years away and will be "Transformational" in their implementation. (See graphic "Priority Matrix for the Information of Things, 2013" within this Scoop it )

UK paves way for driverless cars

UK paves way for driverless cars | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it
The UK government wants to make Britain a world leader in developing autonomous vehicles.

 

"It said it would conduct a review next year to ensure that the legislative and regulatory framework is in place for such vehicles to be incorporated on Britain's roads."

"By mid-2017 it is planned that 100 fully autonomous vehicles will run on the town's pathways along with pedestrians, using sensors to avoid collisions."

 

"Much of the hype around driverless cars centres around Google.... In the US, California, Nevada and Florida have passed legislation to allow driverless cars."

Jocelyn Teague's insight:

The UK is "paving the way" for autonomous vehicle implementation by ensuring the regulation and legal framework is in place first, one of the main limitations of this technology.

The testing time frame of 100 vehicles on the road being 3 years from now matches up with the predicted mainstream adoption estimate of 5-10 years.

Smart machines will have deep business impact replacing semi-skilled humans through 2020

Smart machines will have deep business impact replacing semi-skilled humans through 2020 | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it

"Smart machines, including those that take over human roles in manufacturing, will have "widespread" and "deep" impact on businesses through 2020, according to Gartner."

..."smart machines to take over millions of middle-class jobs in the coming decades..."

"Gartner believes that the capability and reliability of smart machines will dramatically increase through 2020 to the point where they will have a major impact on business and IT functions. The impact is expected to be so high that companies which do not consider a digital workforce will become less productive and less competitive in the future."

Jocelyn Teague's insight:

The ethical issue as to whether smart machines should take the jobs of people is high. This being said, the same thing happened when IBM released their first commercial calculating machine and thousands of human computers were replaced by machines.

It is likely when viewing history that society will grow used to the idea.

Priority Matrix for the Internet of Things, 2013

Priority Matrix for the Internet of Things, 2013 | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it

"The Priority Matrix for the Internet of Things shows that most of the technologies are at least five years out before being adopted by the mainstream, and they generally have higher levels of benefits. The Internet of Things is a concept that is, in itself, transformational, and it will take more than 10 years to gain mainstream adoption. The next five years will see more adoption of the Internet of Things in enterprise areas compared with public/municipality areas and consumer areas (which will each take more than five years to mature broadly)"

Jocelyn Teague's insight:

This graphic shows that both Big data and the Internet of Things are future trending technologies in the next 5-10+ years.

 

These technologies will mature in the enterprise area within the next 5 years. The public and consumer areas will take "more than 5 years to hit mainstream adoption..." 

 

The Internet of things will be present in the consumer area in more than 5 years for the "early adopter, maker movement and niche applications - not mainstream..."

Hype Cycle for the Internet of Things, 2013

Hype Cycle for the Internet of Things, 2013 | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it

"Definition: The Internet of Things is the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment."

 

"Business Impact: The Internet of Things has very broad applications. However, most applications are rooted in four usage scenarios. The Internet of Things will improve enterprise processes, asset utilization, and products and services in one of, or a combination of, the following ways:

Manage — Connected things can be monitored and optimized. For example, sensors on an asset can be optimized for maximum performance or increased yield and up time.Charge — Connected things can be monetized on a pay-per-use. For example, automobiles can be charged for insurance based on mileage.Operate — Connected things can be remotely operated, avoiding the need to go on site. For example, field assets such as valves and actuators can be controlled remotely.Extend — Connected things can be extended with digital services such as content, upgrades and new functionality. For example, connected healthcare equipment can receive software upgrades that improve functionality."

Jocelyn Teague's insight:

The chart shows that the internet of things is still being developed within the industry with full implementation taking more than 10 years.

 

The four points made mention "monitored, optimised, operated and content" These key features of the business impace of the Internet of Things relates back to Big data. All of these devices will be connected and communicating in real time. In order for this amount of data to be managed, The Internet of Things and Big data management systems will work together to drive this technology forward.

Anthony Atala: Printing a human kidney | Video on TED.com

Surgeon Anthony Atala demonstrates an early-stage experiment that could someday solve the organ-donor problem: a 3D printer that uses living cells to output a transplantable kidney.


Via Mark P
Jocelyn Teague's insight:

Atala describes 3 different printing technologies they are using for medical purposes.; an modified inkjet printer which uses cells instead of ink, a 3d printer which prints organs such as kidneys in 7 hours and an advanced 3d printer and scanner which can create a custom organ printed straight into the patient.


These technologies will be the future of solving ... a major health crisis today in terms of the shortage of organs."

Smart Machines Lead to Competitive Advantage as Well as Ethical Challenges

Smart Machines Lead to Competitive Advantage as Well as Ethical Challenges | 1012ICT Part A | Scoop.it
ImpactsSmart machines will handle tasks that previously required human judgment, creating competitive-advantage opportunities as well as ethical challenges for enterprises.Smart machines will enable enterprises to gain competitive advantage by lowering costs, servicing variable demand more effectively and delivering higher-quality outcomes — when compared with employing humans only.Smart machines will give rise to ethical and societal challenges that can negatively affect an enterprise's brand, public perception, employee perception and corporate social responsibility.RecommendationsAggressive early-adopter companies seeking competitive advantage should employ smart machines in their core processes, products and customer-facing interactions during the next 18 months.Build a business case that goes beyond the cost savings — or else the investment in smart machines may not be worth the risks.Involve the senior executive team in detailing the ethical, societal and brand risks of using smart machines. Present these risks alongside the benefits to the board of directors.

 

Smart machines are technologies that help humans by:

Doing what we thought only people could doDoing what we thought machines couldn't do
Jocelyn Teague's insight:

The rise in Smart machines will impact industry for the better allowing for lower cost, consistency, availability and safety, but the ethical and social challenges are going to be great.

 

The ability to start implementing these machines now does exist but their expected mainstream enterprise acceptance will take 5-10 years. This is the time it will take for enterprise to be comfortable with adopting the competitive advantage these machines will bring without their brand and image being affected.
