How SAP Will Disrupt the Enterprise in the Big Data Age

How SAP Will Disrupt the Enterprise in the Big Data Age | Eye on IT enterprise solutions | Scoop.it
When it comes to business applications, SAP has owned the enterprise for quite a long time.

And to the current end user, this big data power will come from behind two beautiful faces: SAP Fiori which, as of yesterday, is free to SAP customers and SAP Lumira, which transforms big data analytics into beautiful visualizations that inform decision making. The latter is available in SAP’s Service Pack 8. This kind of disruption, customers don’t mind. It’s like moving from a cell phone to an iPhone that instead of Siri has Watson (or in SAP’s world SAP InfiniteInsight) inside of it.

Cloud Robotics: The Plan to Build a Massive Online Brain for All the World’s Robots

Cloud Robotics: The Plan to Build a Massive Online Brain for All the World’s Robots | Eye on IT enterprise solutions | Scoop.it
If you walk into the computer science building at Stanford University, Mobi is standing in the lobby, encased in glass. He looks a bit like a garbage can, with a rod for a neck and a camera for eyes. He was one of several robots developed at Stanford in the 1980s to study how machines might learn to navigate their environment—a stepping stone toward intelligent robots that could live and work alongside humans. He worked, but not especially well. The best he could do was follow a path along a wall. Like so many other robots, his “brain” was on the small side. Now, just down the hall from Mobi, scientists led by roboticist Ashutosh Saxena are taking this mission several steps further. They’re working to build machines that can see, hear, comprehend natural language (both written and spoken), and develop an understanding of the world around them, in much the same way that people do. Today, backed by funding from the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research, Google, Microsoft, and Qualcomm, Saxena and his team unveiled what they call RoboBrain, a kind of online service packed with information and artificial intelligence software that any robot could tap into. Working alongside researchers at the University of California at Berkeley, Brown University, and Cornell University, they hope to create a massive online “brain” that can help all robots navigate and even understand the world around them. “The purpose,” says Saxena, who dreamed it all up, “is to build a very good knowledge graph—or a knowledge base—for robots to use.” Any researcher anywhere will be able use the service wirelessly, for free, and transplant its knowledge to local robots. These robots, in turn, will feed what they learn back into the service, improving RoboBrain’s know-how. Then the cycle repeats. These days, if you want a robot to serve coffee or carry packages across a room, you have to hand-code a new software program—or ask a fellow roboticist to share code that’s already been built. If you want to teach a robot a new task, you start all over. These programs, or apps, live on the robot itself, and that, Saxena says, is inefficient. It goes against all the current trends in tech and artificial intelligence, which seek to exploit the power of distributed systems, massive clusters of computers that can power devices over the net. But this is starting to change. RoboBrain is part of an emerging movement known as cloud robotics.
Aaron Petchell's insight:
The concept of a collaborative code base that others can draw on and that the central code learns from is great... Hopefully we have learnt from Skynet experience though.

Even Steve Lucas, president of SAP Platform Solutions, admits his company’s traditional user interfaces are ugly — for this day and age — and that the company's user experiences leave a lot to be desired. Instead of being colorful, “delightful” and productivity-oriented, they come in and act in on something Lucas describes as “a palette of grays”. And they aren't anywhere as exciting as those 50 shades you may envision. This isn’t an experience Topic: Information Management.
