IBM unveils "world's smallest computer" with blockchain at Think 2018

IBM unveils "world's smallest computer" with blockchain at Think 2018 | Bridging the Gaps | Scoop.it

March 19 is the first day of IBM Think 2018, the company's flagship conference, where the company will unveil what it claims is the world's smallest computer. They're not kidding: It's literally smaller than a grain of salt. 

 

But don't let the size fool you: This sucker has the computing power of the x86 chip from 1990. Okay, so that's not great compared to what we have today, but cut it some slack — you need a microscope to see it. 

 

The computer will cost less than ten cents to manufacture, and will also pack "several hundred thousand transistors," according to the company. These will allow it to "monitor, analyze, communicate, and even act on data."

 

According to IBM, this is only the beginning. "Within the next five years, cryptographic anchors — such as ink dots or tiny computers smaller than a grain of salt — will be embedded in everyday objects and devices," says IBM head of research Arvind Krishna. If he's correct, we'll see way more of these tiny systems in objects and devices in the years to come.

How will Brexit affect health and health services in the UK? Evaluating three possible scenarios

The process of leaving the European Union (EU) will have profound consequences for
health and the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. In this paper, we use the
WHO health system building blocks framework to assess the likely effects of three
scenarios we term soft Brexit, hard Brexit, and failed Brexit. We conclude that each
scenario poses substantial threats. The workforce of the NHS is heavily reliant on
EU staff. Financing of health care for UK citizens in the EU and vice versa is threatened,
as is access to some capital funds, while Brexit threatens overall economic performance.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, January 22, 6:19 PM

WHY IT MATTERS: most companies in the list are US, some Canadian (GO-Habs-GO!) and some are Chinese. But watch out, AI may be "made in China" real soon! As I return from CES2018, I expect that future lists will be dominated by China in the coming years given the level of intensity that I have seen at the show. This is good (competition always is) but I have just one note of care: privacy protection may suffer if we are not careful. Case in point: China already uses public AI powered security cameras to track individuals and do public shaming in bus stops. More on this in a later post...

You only have a few seconds to make an impression with teens on Snapchat or Instagram.

Everyone knows that the root of marketing is understanding your audience. Knowing who they are, and where they are. Are they reading magazines? Tweeting on Twitter? Engaging in LinkedIn groups? Reading trade publications? Watching online videos? Knowing your audience is the single most important thing for a business owner to understand. Read more: click image or title.

most CMOs and CEOs never thought they would be looking to teenagers for advice on their brand or how to create a relevant, dynamic and lasting relationship with their brand, but if that is your audience, then it certainly makes sense to understand how teenagers' brains work.
