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...

Big Data as a Service: What Can it Do for Your Enterprise?

Big Data as a Service: What Can it Do for Your Enterprise? | New Technology | Scoop.it
The multiple V’s of Big Data require the hardware architecture operating it to be “distributed” and rooted in parallel processing for the most efficient management possible. Although the data sources for Big Data can be anywhere, when the multi-channel data is pulled into the Big Data environment, then the two significant characteristics that distinguish Big Data from other types of data is scale and processing power. The Big Data market was forecasted to grow to about $17 billion by 2015, and considerably larger through 2020. If one goes with that figure, then the Big Data as a Service (BDaaS) market has the scope to grow to about $2.55 billion, which is 15 percent of the Big Data market. Furthermore, the Big Data market may reach upwards of $88 billion in 2021, a significant part of which may be captured by Hadoop as well, because Hadoop offers an open source alternative to expensive hardware architectures. Big Data as a Service (BDaaS) is the new mantra for Enterprise Data Management. Till recently, the term BDaaS was used to imply a broad range of data services hosted on Cloud platforms. In a typical bundled solution, other related services like Software as a Service (SaaS) or Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) were used to deliver Big Data enabled Data Management solutions. The biggest drawback, in spite of many business benefits, of such a solution has been the lack of user control over the data path. Now, with the growing popularity of Hadoop as an enabler for commodity hardware and open source software environments, BDaaS is becoming more accessible, more controlled, and more beneficial through a combination of on-premise and Cloud technologies. Now, data may be stored both on-premise and on Cloud platforms, but the data processing will take place on hosted Cloud servers. That means today’s businesses can store data on premise, have access to external data, and can mix-match data from multiple source for centralized Data Analytics and Business Intelligence (BI). With the flexible hybrid BDaaS solutions, the businesses can “eat the cake and have it too.” While they can access and process data on hosted solutions for powerful, real-time insights, they need not worry about losing control and privacy over their proprietary data that is stored on premise. So while data is kept intact in their premises, they do not need to make costly investments for advanced data analytics and BI activities, and that can be done on outsourced Cloud platforms. BDaaS will enable the smaller to medium sized businesses to reap the benefits of Big Data Analytics without investing in costly in-house data center setups. As Big Data allows widely varied, complex, and unstructured data to be analytics ready with reasonably fast and clean data preparation methods, it is getting increasingly popular among the global business world. Thus, the possibility of Big Data as a Service (BDaaS) making rapid strides in the Data Analytics market is strong. As more small and medium sized businesses continue to demand more sophisticated business analytics capabilities from IT service provides, BDaaS will become an ideal, cost-friendly alternative to in-premise data centers requiring heavy financial and infrastructural investments. Big Data as a Service can be offered as many different options, which are described here: The article titled Big Data as a Service Is the Next Big Thing suggests that BDaaS is nothing but a mashup of Data as a Service (DaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) with up-scaled data. In the recent years, paid Cloud platforms have offered all these services in isolation for Enterprise Data Management, and now a comprehensive solution is available with BDaaS. BDaaS can offer all types of data services and full range of business analytics services from a centralized dashboard. You will find many interesting BDaaS use cases in the above article.

Personal Computing Is Dead, Long Live Collaborative Computing | New Technology | Scoop.it

"Those of us who are actively developing for the HoloLens, and for the other augmented and mixed reality devices and platforms that currently exist, are constantly looking for the next bit of news or press conference about the space. Our one hope is to find any information about the road ahead, to know that the hours we spend slaving away above our keyboards, with the weight of a head-mounted display on our neck, will lead to something as amazing as we picture it. All the analysis tends to lead down roads that say 5 to 10 years."

Bryce Cooper's curator insight, May 30, 2017 12:29 AM
I think that the hololens is a fantastic resource, and I hope that it gains more traction sooner rather than later. The capabilities that mixed reality could present to my own teaching in the area of history are quite profound. Students could physically experience historical events, see through the eyes of someone who was there standing on the ground when ANZAC soldiers landed at Gallipoli, or when the Treaty of Versailles was signed. Students could interact with the augmented reality and use it to create great collaborative projects. They could use it to predict outcomes of battles, from being able to physically see the circustances such as terrain and armed strength.

This resource supports the SAMR framework well, in regards to the higher order thinking aspects of Redefinition. Students can immerse themselves in a situation in VR that replaces the physical pictures, text and videos entirely, and creates a new dimension to engagement with a topic. Whilke a documentary full of firsthand footage can be insightful for a relatively recent era, VR recreations of ancient historical aspects could be invaluable for student engagement and learning. 

VR has the capability to essentially redefine the way in which students learn and engage with history, and can present all new opportunities for teachers to plan and implement interesting and engaging assessment and activities.

Blockchains: How They Work and Why They’ll Change the World

Blockchains: How They Work and Why They’ll Change the World | New Technology | Scoop.it
The technology behind Bitcoin could touch every transaction you ever make

 

Bitcoin was hatched as an act of defiance. Unleashed in the wake of the Great Recession, the cryptocurrency was touted by its early champions as an antidote to the inequities and corruption of the traditional financial system. They cherished the belief that as this parallel currency took off, it would compete with and ultimately dismantle the institutions that had brought about the crisis. Bitcoin’s unofficial catchphrase, “In cryptography we trust,” left no doubt about who was to blame: It was the middlemen, the bankers, the “trusted” third parties who actually couldn’t be trusted. These humans simply got in the way of other humans, skimming profits and complicating transactions.

 

Bitcoin sought to replace the services provided by these intermediaries with cryptography and code. When you use a check to pay your mortgage, a series of agreements occur in the background between your financial institution and others, enabling money to go from your account to someone else’s. Your bank can vouch that your money is good because it keeps records indicating where every penny in your account came from, and when.

 

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies replace those background agreements and transactions with software—specifically, a distributed and secure database called a blockchain. The process with which the ownership of a Bitcoin token will pass from one person to another—wherever they are, no matter what government they live under—is entrusted to a bunch of computers.

 

Now, eight years after the first blockchain was built, people are trying to apply it to procedures and processes beyond merely the moving of money with varying degrees of success. In effect, they’re asking, What other agreements can a blockchain automate? What other middlemen can blockchain technology retire?

 

Can a blockchain find people offering rides, link them up with people who are trying to go somewhere, and give the two parties a transparent platform for payment? Can a blockchain act as a repository and a replay platform for TV shows, movies, and other digital media while keeping track of royalties and paying content creators? Can a blockchain check the status of airline flights and pay travelers a previously agreed upon amount if their planes don’t take off on time?

 

If so, then blockchain technology could get rid of Uber, Netflix, and every flight-insurance provider on the market.

PEOPLESatoshi Nakamoto

If the blockchain were a religion, Satoshi would be God. This anonymous hacker is responsible for writing the Bitcoin white paper, releasing the first Bitcoin code, and inspiring legions of blockchain developers. Many have sought to reveal his/her/their identity, but to this day that information remains secret.

Those three proposed applications aren’t hypothetical—they’re just a few of the things now being built onEthereum, a blockchain platform that remotely executes software on a distributed computer system called the Ethereum Virtual Machine. In the blockchain universe, Ethereum, which has its own cryptocurrency, called ethers, is by far the project that is most open to experimentation. But zoom out and a diverse collection of potentially disruptive innovators floods into view. New groups are pitching blockchain schemes almost daily. And the tech world’s titans don’t plan to miss out: Microsoft is offering its customers tools to experiment with blockchain applications on its Azure cloud. IBM, Intel, and others are collaborating on an open-source blockchain initiative called Hyperledger, which aims to provide the bones for business-oriented blockchains. Meanwhile, many of the largest banks—the very institutions that blockchain pioneers were trying to neutralize—have cobbled together their own version of the technology in an attempt to stay ahead of the curve. And even Bitcoin, which runs on the first and most successful blockchain, is being retrofitted for applications its designers never dreamed of.
