IBM's Watson is better at diagnosing cancer than human doctors (Wired UK)

IBM's Watson is better at diagnosing cancer than human doctors (Wired UK) | 5 Trends in Information Technology during the next 5-10 years | Scoop.it
Watson, IBM claims, is better at cancer diagnosis than human doctors, and its deployment could also reduce healthcare costs
Craig Hayward's insight:

IBM Watson is a potential solution to the processing of big data. The article explains that IMB plans to help improve medical diagnosis by providing Watson with so much medical information that it would take at least 160 hours of reading per week for a doctor to keep up with Watson’s information in take. Utilising big data in this type of way can not only potentially improve patience’s treatment but could also cut costs of medical treatment. Projects such as Watson illustrate what can be done once big data is accessed in intelligent ways and there are many potential ways this could be utilized outside the medical field such as intelligences gathering and processing.

Language is one of the most important technologies developed. Since time immemorial, language has allowed people to connect with one another. However, as languages had developed and become divergent, it could be argued that language has also caused people to become estranged with one another, creating yet another barrier. However, language barriers are quickly being smashed and communication issues are fast becoming a non-factor. This technology allows real-time communication to take place between people of two entirely different cultures, which could lead to much better relations with foreign countries.

Privacy in the Age of Big Data - Stanford Law Review

Privacy in the Age of Big Data - Stanford Law Review | 5 Trends in Information Technology during the next 5-10 years | Scoop.it
We live in an age of “big data.” Data has become the raw material of production, a new source of immense economic and social value.
Craig Hayward's insight:

As big data becomes more ubiquitous privacy concerns will grow. Regulators will have the choice of either letting the market decide what should and should not be done or regulate the sale of personal data. Either outcome will have shock ways in the future of how big data will be used by companies.

Puneet Singh's curator insight, March 14, 2013 6:21 PM

General insurer IAG will pilot a range of big data technologies in coming months as it works towards a long-term goal of tailoring insurance prices to individual customers.

IAG group CTO and CIO, Asia, Ram Kumar told an FST Media conference yesterday that the group had selected three business areas to undergo five- to seven-week pilots this year.

Kumar said the projects would focus on areas with a “direct impact on the customer experience” in Australia and New Zealand, although he declined to disclose specifics.

The pilots – designed to focus on business benefits, not technology – were expected to inform an IAG big data strategy, which would be aligned with its existing enterprise information management regime.

The "Big Five" IT trends of the next half decade: Mobile, social, cloud, consumerization, and big data | ZDNet | 5 Trends in Information Technology during the next 5-10 years | Scoop.it
In today's ever more technology-centric world, the stodgy IT department isn't considered the home of innovation and business leadership.
Craig Hayward's insight:

This is an interesting article about how 5 trends in IT will shape the future in business in the next 5 years. The most important of the 5 in my option will be

Mobile - Smart phones are seen as an important tool in most businesses. They allow you use quickly and easily make phone calls, check your calendar, email and possibly even use apps that help streamline your work flow. Tablets to also will play a more important role in business in the future once issues of corporate support are resolved. I can see these problems being over come in years to come as corporate demand for these on the move devices increases, while I do not see tablets fully replacing traditional desktop and laptop PCs in the near future, I see tablets being used for niche reason in the short term. For the time being and possibly replacing clipboards in situations such as hospitals and used in any customer service role where you may walk up to a customer and need information as quick as possible.


Cloud Computing – The cloud does have many advantages such as reduce cost but also comes with some negative perceptions of business confidentiality and reliability as being draw backs. In whatever form of the cloud the future brings us, I don’t think it will be escaped fully by businesses.


Big data – As pointed out the this article there must be almost no businesses that aren’t droning in data that they can’t hope to analysis; if businesses are able to take advantage of an increases amount of data it may help them stay a head or close to the curve as things rapidly change around them.
