40 Maps That Explain The Internet | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The internet increasingly pervades our lives, delivering information to us no matter where we are. It takes a complex system of cables, servers, towers, and other infrastructure, developed over decades, to allow us to stay in touch with our friends and family so effortlessly. Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet — where it came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world.

5 #Disruptions to #Marketing, Part 4: #Digital Everything

5 #Disruptions to #Marketing, Part 4: #Digital Everything | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

This is part 4 of a five-part series, providing an update on the 5 Disruptions to Marketing as we head into 2018. For the first half of the Internet revolution, “digital” meant the web. Email was there from the beginning too, but it’s never gotten much respect as a transformational medium. (Mostly, in my opinion, because the pain-to-pleasure ratio of email in people’s lives doesn’t feel like a net win — with a fistbump out to M.G. Sielger.). But then the Hyrda-like heads of digital touchpoints began to multiply.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: Marketing has been the first department hit by digital transformation starting in the mid 2000s. It is interesting to take a step back after 10-15 years to see how they've evolved - and maybe learn a thing or two for other teams that are starting to feel the pain of digital transformation: administration, human resources, operations, etc.

Faking Out God : what if #SocialMedia #AI #mobile and other systems that watch over us can make us better via @NYTimes | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Results, researchers said, were consistent with what they call the “supernatural-monitoring hypothesis” — that is, that “thinking of God triggers the same social cognitive processes that are activated by real-time social surveillance.” A sense that you’re being seen — whether by a fellow human or by a supreme consciousness from which no thought can be withheld — does seem to change how you see yourself as well as how you behave.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: we are all afraid that Big Brother and other digital systems that watch our every moves will have nothing but negative consequences. Research implies that, if we believe strongly that we are being watched by computers, then we will behave better. Kind of like people do when they believe in God. I agree but only if this constant monitoring is done only with a positive goal - but I unfortunately cannot define what positive is...

AI-Fooling Glasses Could Be Good Enough to Trick Facial Recognition at Airports: the future of clothing may be part style, part privacy protection #privacy #AI #faceRecognition

AI-Fooling Glasses Could Be Good Enough to Trick Facial Recognition at Airports: the future of clothing may be part style, part privacy protection #privacy #AI #faceRecognition | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

In the not-too-distant future, we’ll have plenty of reasons to want protect ourselves from facial detection software. It’s gotten so good at tricking the system that the researchers made a serious suggestion to the TSA: Since facial recognition is already being used in high-security public places like airports, they’ve asked the TSA to consider requiring people to remove physical artifacts—hats, jewelry, and of course eyeglasses—before facial recognition scans.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: with face recognition security cameras becoming more widely used, I can see a future where your clothes are designed to fool systems into not recognizing you and keeping your privacy intact.

Chinese police are using facial-recognition glasses to scan crowds for wanted criminals #security #privacy #AI  | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
  • Railway police have begun using facial-recognition eyewear to catch criminals.
  • In tests the glasses identified faces within 100 milliseconds.
  • Seven people have been arrested for a range of previous crimes, and another 26 were banned from travel.
  • China has been ramping up its use of facial-recognition technology as it moves toward a nationwide database that can recognize any citizen within three seconds.
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: face recognition using AI has been around for a few years. It used to require large computers in the cloud. Not anymore. This changes everything.

1) privacy: it will become more and more difficult to protect your privacy in the future. I have written about this before, specifically when the Google glasses came out 3 years ago. It is a concept that is interpreted differently in countries and cultures - such as China vs USA.

2) China: is investing heavily to win the AI war with the US. So we should expect every product - from glasses to door bells to cell phones to cars - to have face recognition built into the device in the very near future. At the CES2018 show, I saw a number of companies that offer face recognition chips ready to be embedded at low price into any consumer device. So it *will* happen. More on China in a later post...

3) protection: people will naturally want to protect themselves. We should start to see face masks that are designed to fool face recognition hardware as has been shown to be possible recently.

#Drones relay #RFID signals or read barcodes for improved inventory control without humans or ladders #MIT #WMS #digital  | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

MIT researchers have developed a system that enables small, safe, aerial drones to read RFID tags from tens of meters away while identifying the tags’ locations. The system could be used in large warehouses to prevent inventory mismatches and locate individual items.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: drones and autonomous vehicles have applications in business settings that may be more valuable and faster to deploy short term than consumer applications we have come to see in recent years - like self-driving cars or drone following humans in the wild. Here MIT has adapted drones to perform inventory control using RFID tags in warehouses. At the recent CES 2018 event, drones from company Eyesee are equipped with high definition cameras perform similar tasks of inventory control and management. These solutions have short-term benefits for enterprises that warrant deployment of what is still a very new technology. In the future, Artificial Intelligence image recognition software should enable even more advanced inventory control.

eCommerce leader @Cdiscount opens 3000sq.ft. warehouse to let #startups innovate & disrupt #innovation #digital #disruption #agile @bastienginer | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The Warehouse est le premier entrepôt destiné aux startups pour créer la supply chain du futur. Créé par Cdiscount, ce lieu d’innovation propose un programme d’accompagnement de 6 mois, alliant à la fois du mentoring pour challenger la stratégie des startups, mais également des ateliers de codesign avec les utilisateurs experts de leur métier, afin de contextualiser les solutions logistiques des startups sélectionnées.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: we all say companies must innovate but often they struggle because of internal operational constraints - after all they have a business to run and cannot disrupt their operations to try things out. That is why such an experiment by CDiscount is so important: they have created both a *place* where startups can do their things and a *process* for them not worry if they break something. Can't wait to see the results of that - but I guess it can only be positive, how can it not be?

Amazon package-delivery service to compete with FedEx and UPS #SWA #eCommerce #disruption #RetailApocalypse

Amazon package-delivery service to compete with FedEx and UPS #SWA #eCommerce #disruption #RetailApocalypse | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Amazon will launch a package-delivery service called Shipping with Amazon, or SWA, The Wall Street Journal reported. The service is designed to compete directly with UPS and FedEx. SWA is expected to roll out in Los Angeles over the next few weeks, then spread to other cities in the US during the year.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this is not a surprise as delivery fees are close to 15% of Amazon costs. I wrote about this in the past numerous times and it looks like Amazon is moving in the direction of competing with large delivery providers. Again, Amazon only needs to break even on delivery costs, it does not need to make a profit. Moreover, going into grocery eCommerce can provide additional volume and predictable routes (think milkmen routes) to put trucks on the roads, pay for their fixed costs, and effectively make delivery "free" for all other product categories. When self-driving cars -or more likely autonomous vehicles - become a reality, Amazon will be there to reap the benefits. Another attack of established retail and distribution industry that Amazon is famous for.

The Global #AI Talent Pool Going into 2018 HT @jfgagne

The Global #AI Talent Pool Going into 2018 HT @jfgagne | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

I reached out for help a little while ago on Twitter and on LinkedIn to assess the size and state of the global AI talent pool—a crucial issue for the entire industry going forward. Thank you to those of you from around the world who responded in large numbers. Your generous input has gone into a new report that we at Element AI have developed. We now have a more detailed picture of the size and characteristics of the pool of AI experts going into 2018. I see this report as a living document that will continue growing with others’ contributions. Our broadest measure of the global talent pool is 22,000 individuals: it remains clear that the fight for talent will continue into the foreseeable future. Below are some of my observations on what I see happening around the world. 

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: A great analysis of the current pool of talent in AI worldwide - compiled by our local Montreal AI darling startup Element.ai. The conclusion: there are very few experts in the AI field today and even though tools and frameworks are available for newbies to get their feet wet, the learning curve is important.

However, I will suggest that the pool of talent to "integrate" AI into other solutions - mobile apps, eCommerce, production systems, etc. - is much wider and grows exponentially fast. I like to draw parallels with the Internet of late 1990s when anyone with a computer and web browser could develop a website - but very few had the skills to create eCommerce software or scalable web infrastructure.

The State of Ransomware reports that majority of companies recover from data backups - and only 3% pay the hackers to get their data back

The State of Ransomware reports that majority of companies recover from data backups - and only 3% pay the hackers to get their data back | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Ransomware has become one of the most prevalent new cybersecurity threats faced by today’s enterprises. Now well beyond the incipient stage of opportunistic attacks, this automated form of blackmail has increased in prevalence and sophistication. The malware now targets organizations of all sizes as the bad guys look for ways to extort money and create trouble for businesses by taking their data hostage. Dark Reading’s 2017 Ransomware Survey queried IT practitioners about their recent experiences with ransomware and related malware over the past 12 months. Some of the findings include:

  • 35% of organizations detected ransomware on their systems in the past year.
  • 83% of affected organizations responded to infection by deleting the encrypted data and reimagining their systems using backup data.
  • Two in five organizations don’t have a ransomware response plan in place.
  • Only 27% of organizations believe current anti-malware technology is effective in preventing ransomware.
  • Half of IT practitioners believe it will be harder to prevent ransomware from infecting their systems two years from now.
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: ransomware has made headlines in recent months but it appears that most organization manage to recover from backup data instead of paying the crooks. This report claims only 3% of organizations pay - but it still accounts for a whole lot of trouble, downtime and effort for those organization that find an alternate route. Better be prepared against those attacks!

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms highlights the variety of solutions and the complexity of selecting the "best solution" #DXP

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms highlights the variety of solutions and the complexity of selecting the "best solution" #DXP | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Organizations are looking to use DXPs as they move from web-centric to more pervasive, multichannel digital experiences. This Magic Quadrant will help those responsible for a range of customer-, employee- and partner-facing initiatives find the most suitable vendor for their needs.
Gartner defines a digital experience platform (DXP) as an integrated set of technologies, based on a common platform, that provides a broad range of audiences with consistent, secure and personalized access to information and applications across many digital touchpoints. Organizations use DXPs to build, deploy and continually improve websites, portals, mobile and other digital experiences.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: the web has moved from being simply a digital brochure to the source where all other channels derive their content - from print brochures, ads, mobile, emails, etc. In that context it is not a surprise that web solutions (or web content management solutions) have become platforms. So important is this technology trend that retailers now consider their eCommerce solution as the most important tool when looking to replace their POS solution in store. Thus this review from Gartner can help identify that future enterprise leaders may not be IBM, Microsoft and Oracle but Acquia, Adobe or Sitecore. Then again, one should expect these leaders to acquire those DX platforms to keep their position within the organization. Fun times ahead!

If Workers Slack Off, the Wristband Will Know. (And #Amazon Has a Patent for It.) - #wearables are finding their way onto the shop and this is inevitable | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The e-commerce giant has won two patents for a tracking technology that can nudge a human hand in the right direction — toward a warehouse bin, say.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: wearables offer the potential to help track our every move, providing a trove of information to improve health and work. Already there is proof that Apple watches can detect heart attacks. If this patent from 2016 by Amazon is built into a product and deployed, work productivity can improve as well. Of course this may have serious implications for privacy or work requirements, but we must get used to it. With robots falling in price and AI letting them do more and more human-level tasks, the future of work is bound to be measured much more closely than it is today.

Protecting digital identity more important than ever: You must "claim" your digital properties: Facebook,  Linkedin, Social security, etc. to protect yourself from thieves & hackers via @BrianKrebs | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

KrebsOnSecurity has long warned readers to plant your own flag at the my Social Security online portal of the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) — even if you are not yet drawing benefits from the agency — because identity thieves have been registering accounts in peoples’ names and siphoning retirement and/or disability funds.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: It is important to be present on the digital mediums out there, from Facebook to LinkedIn and many others. No need to post or share anything personal, JUST CLAIM YOUR DIGITAL PLACE! Otherwise someone else may - with dire consequences.

I have written some posts that may complete this one from Krebs:

1.7 million items a day across its four fulfilment centres
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: On the heals of recent technology deals between Ocado and Carrefour in France and Sobeys in Canada, this paper and others explain how the technology works.

HUMAN-LESS WAREHOUSE

The technology is akin to a huge vending machine, where products are stored in compartments that robots can access when required. More important is that this technology can apply to any product you can buy online, not only grocery. In fact, figuring grocery item picking is probably the most difficult product category - with 3 temperature items (room, cold, frozen) and lots of small and delicate products (think tomatoes and meat). This will help reduce the cost and errors of web order fulfilment, and potentially speed delivery to make 1hr delays possible. When coupled with robot manipulation and self-driving delivery vans, the days of human-free order preparation and delivery is fast approaching.

RETAIL ARMAGGEDON

This will revolutionize the way we think of retail and distribution by making the store useless. The value chain will become produce-warehouse-home.

#Blockchain may be the next revolution in the food supply chain - but education is key for wide adoption of this complex technology

#Blockchain may be the next revolution in the food supply chain - but education is key for wide adoption of this complex technology | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

According to a Deloitte survey, 40% of senior executives of large companies know little to nothing about blockchain, yet many view the technology as a top priority for 2017. This data suggests that one of the first barriers to promoting widespread adoption of the technology in the food industry is basic education about how the industry can benefit from blockchain.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: one of the key use case for blockchain is food traceability improvements, allowing faster and more precise product recalls for example. A recent study here shows that executives need lots of education and training to adopt and deploy the technology.
