This post explores the pyramid of digital needs. Based on personal experience and observations, I describe what this hierarchy may be composed of, map technologies that support them, and offer an initial analysis of the impact on individuals and businesses.

AI Creates Fake Obama via @gnat @ieee | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
In the new study, the neural net learned what mouth shapes were linked to various sounds. The researchers took audio clips and dubbed them over the original sound files of a video. They next took mouth shapes that matched the new audio clips and grafted and blended them onto the video. Essentially, the researchers synthesized videos where Obama lip-synched words he said up to decades beforehand.
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Fake news is difficult to debunk because we are trained to believe what we read has been vetted and checked for validity. Images and videos are even worse because, until now, it was difficult to alter them in any meaningful way. Technologies like this may change that forever. Watch out for elections 202 in the USA.

API-Security-Checklist - A checklist of the most important security countermeasures when designing, testing, and releasing your API.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

github is a software engineering tool for software version control that has been leveraged for large open source projects. It has also been used to co-edit documents with a high level of version control and large population of authors. I wanted to share this - along with previous posts on software engineering blogs and 2 factor authentication support - as a great example of how digital can help transform the way people work. Unfortunately I find that organizations have yet to become aware of this great tool, maybe because it is a little bit too geeky for non technical employees.

Smart home gadget ends a violent dispute by calling police (updated)

Smart home gadget ends a violent dispute by calling police (updated) | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Inadvertent smart speaker commands aren't always bad. New Mexico police report that a smart home device (incorrectly labeled at first as a Google Home) intervened in a domestic violence incident by calling 911. When Eduardo Barros asked "did you call the sheriffs?" as he threatened his girlfriend with a gun during a fight, the device interpreted it as a request to call emergency services. They overheard the altercation and called both negotiators and a SWAT team, who arrested Barros over assault, battery and firearms charges after a stand-off.
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Devices that listen - and potentially record - our every word are becoming ubiquitous. Think of Apple siri (smartphone) or Amazon Echo (home device). We are entering a new age where everything we say - or do, when devices not only listen but record our every moves, think of the Google Glass (wearable) or the network of cameras that line the streets of London and other cities - can be held against us and create a true surveillance state a-la 1984. Pundits will likely say that the benefits highlighted in this article are worth the loss of privacy for increased security. Not certain what to think about this just yet...

more...
prgnewshawaii's curator insight, July 11, 5:02 PM

These smart devices are a mixed blessing.  On one hand, these home devices may save a life or alert police to an emergency. On the other hand our daily lives will be released in cyber space for all to hear. There are unresolved ethical and privacy issues involved. Shades of George Orwell's dystopian novel "1984."

Warren Buffett’s Best Investment: Gates foundation annual letter should give us all #optimism

Warren Buffett’s Best Investment: Gates foundation annual letter should give us all #optimism | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Ten years ago, when we first got word of your gift to the foundation, we were speechless. It was the biggest single gift anyone ever gave anybody for anything. We knew we owed you a fantastic return on your investment.

Of course, philanthropy isn’t like business. We don’t have sales and profits to show you. There’s no share price to report. But there are numbers we watch closely to guide our work and measure our progress.

Our goals are shared by many other organizations working to save and improve lives. We’re all in this together. So most of the numbers we look at don’t focus just on how we as a foundation are doing, but on how the world is doing—and how we see our role.

Warren, your gift doubled the foundation’s resources. It’s allowed us to expand our work in US education, support smallholder farmers, and create financial services for the poor. But in this letter, we’re going to tell you about our work in global health—because that was the starting point of our philanthropy, and it’s the majority of what we do.

We’ll tell the story through the numbers that drive our work. Let’s start with the most important one.

Lighthouse is an open-source, automated tool for improving the quality of web pages. You can run it against any web page, public or requiring authentication. It has audits for performance, accessibility, progressive web apps, and more.

You can run Lighthouse as a Chrome Extension, from the command line, or as a Node module. You give Lighthouse a URL to audit, it runs a series of audits against the page, and then it generates a report on how well the page did. From there, use the failing audits as indicators on how to improve the page. Each audit has a reference doc explaining why the audit is important, as well as how to fix it.

Your mobile phone hosts a rich array of information about you and your behavior.

Forbes Insights-Alfresco Study Reveals 3 Levers For Digital Transformation

Forbes Insights-Alfresco Study Reveals 3 Levers For Digital Transformation | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

A new study by Forbes Insights and Alfresco explores what separates the winners from the losers in the digital economy. 

The research concludes that there are three levers business and IT leaders can employ for successful digital transformation, which catalyze a rethinking of the way organizations embrace the power of business technology:

  • Design thinking—where a relentless focus upon optimizing user experience and customer experience guides all business technology decisions.
  • Open thinking—in which innovation from both inside and outside the organization is encouraged to drive new initiatives.
  • Platform thinking—where the desired outcome of systems and solution deployment is to build an ecosystem of partners and customers that exchange capabilities and data in a manner that creates added value.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

This survey confirms what others (McKinsey, Accenture, etc.) have proven before: the leaders of digital transformation leverage digital tools to rethink the way they do business instead of simply digitizing their existing one. To do so it takes amazing leaders able to innovate and risk by reviewing how they design their products and cooperate with others.

Facebook's AI accidentally created its own language & learned to negotiate in #chatbots | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

Researchers from the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research lab (FAIR) recently made an unexpected discovery while trying to improve chatbots. The bots — known as “dialog agents” — were creating their own language — well, kinda. Using machine learning algorithms, dialog agents were left to converse freely in an attempt to strengthen their conversational skills.
