It's that time of year, once again, when I take a traditional Christmas song or carol and create a fun technology-related version of it to share with all of you. This is the fourth year and the seventh song, so I hope you enjoy your holiday song for 2017: AI
Tag: internet of things
Vor zwölf Jahren habe ich in meinem Buch „The End of Software" die Frage diskutiert, ob und inwiefern Software eine Dienstleistung darstellen sollte. Auguren sahen in einem solchen Dienstleistungsgedanken das Ende von Software. Doch heute sind Cloud Services gang und gäbe. Software hat sich als Dienstleistung längst etabliert. Und? Was
„… Internet, Internet, ich hör‘ hier immer Internet. Sag’n Se‘ ma‘, ganz richtig ist das nicht!“ Der Service-Manager errötet nach seinem Rap. Lenin schwankt zwischen Belustigung und bolschewistischem Ingrimm: Stellt der Rote Rapper seine Erfolge im Internet of Things infrage? Der Rapper fährt fort: „Denn diese Daten, die Sie verbraten,
Dementia describes different brain disorders that trigger a loss of brain function. These conditions are all usually progressive and eventually severe. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, affecting 62 percent of those diagnosed. Other types of dementia include; vascular dementia affecting 17 percent of those diagnosed, mixed
Es claro que este año que está por finalizar ha traído grandes cambios para todo el mundo en cuanto a transformación digital se trata, se estructuraron cambios en las industrias, la economía e incluso las formas de comunicación con sus clientes. Pero la tecnología no se detiene y cada día

One of the best parts of my job is hearing about all the cool ways people are using data for good. Increasingly, many of these stories are related to the Internet of Things, including: Smart pills that help patients stick to their treatment regimens. These ingestible sensors can monitor patients’
In an IoT world, everything is connected. But what does it mean to be connected? Does it mean being plugged in to your phone, car, home, TV, favorite apps and retailers? Does it mean knowing what’s happening all around you? And having the “things” you’re connected to acting as recommender
Let me start by posing a question: "Are you forecasting at the edge to anticipate what consumers want or need before they know it?" Not just forecasting based on past demand behavior, but using real-time information as it is streaming in from connected devices on the Internet of Things (IoT).
Jim Harris discusses how the lines between data management and analytics are fading.
Via streaming data, Jim Harris says machines can learn some amazing things without being programmed with domain knowledge.
Two minutes in, I knew the 2017 SAS Global Forum Technology Connection would not be typical or average. For one thing, it was SAS Chief Technology Officer Oliver Schabenberger's show, and nothing he does is ever typical or average. The first surprise of the morning was his entrance. He zoomed onto the stage on a Segway, using slight
Batters assess the game before hitting the ball. Similarly, Todd Wright says businesses can make faster, better decisions by understanding events in motion.
David Loshin extends his exploration of ethical issues surrounding automated systems and event stream processing to encompass data quality and risk considerations.
I’m drawn to immersive analytics (IA) because it covers areas I’ve been looking at since 2012, and have been publishing on since early 2014, like virtual reality and data worlds. I’m retroactively applying the cool new term IA (not to be confused with AI for artificial intelligence) to all of my activities
The real questions revolve around approaches to ESP system implementations, predictive models and quality of information being streamed, says David Loshin.
.@philsimon sees these two colliding sooner rather than later.
.@philsimon raises some chilling questions about the IoT and current threats.
It was just a few years ago that the idea of an Internet of Things (IoT) seemed far off, something out of a science-fiction movie. After all, why would a vehicle need to talk to the road? Why would our utility meters need to talk to the central office? The
We've all seen it before – a truck on the side of the road with the hood up and the driver desperate to figure out what’s wrong. In this situation, not only is a customer not receiving goods on time, but the problem is exacerbated by the fact that most
Streaming technologies have been around for years, but as Felix Liao recently blogged, the numbers and types of use cases that can take advantage of these technologies have now increased exponentially. I've blogged about why streaming is the most effective way to handle the volume, variety and velocity of big data. That's
I've long been fascinated by both science and the natural world around us, inspired by the amazing Sir David Attenborough with his ever-engaging documentaries and boundless enthusiasm for nature, and also by the late, great Carl Sagan and his ground-breaking documentary series, COSMOS. The relationships between the creatures, plants and
.@philsimon says that privacy is your issue as well whether you believe it or not.
Ready for another (soon to be classic) fun, custom-made for IT holiday jingle?? Fire up the hot chocolate, gather around the water cooler and belt this one out at the upcoming office party: Have a holly, jolly smart grid It's about time we upgraded our electric infrastructure I don't know
It's that festive time of year again, so you may want to build yourself a fire and grab a cup of hot chocolate as you prepare for a rousing round of holiday/IT joy. Grab your co-workers and gather around the water cooler while singing along to this post and others
Utility leaders are struggling with a world that's quickly changing and barely recognizable from the one they knew growing up. Many of the old assumptions are gone, and the business model upon which careers have been built is on the verge of disappearing. So what does the internet of things
Hadoop may have been the buzzword for the last few years, but streaming seems to be what everyone is talking about these days. Hadoop deals primarily with big data in stationary and batch-based analytics. But modern streaming technologies are aimed at the opposite spectrum, dealing with data in motion and
Energy suppliers are fighting for prime position in the domestic energy supply market. Disillusioned customers, increased competition due to a flood of new entrants and tighter regulations are forcing suppliers to reassess their business models. According to UK regulator Ofgem, there were 3.8 million account switches in the first six
As I've previously written, data analytics historically analyzed data after it stopped moving and was stored, often in a data warehouse. But in the era of big data, data needs to be continuously analyzed while it’s still in motion – that is, while it’s streaming. This allows for capturing the real-time value of data
The internet of medical things, spurred by the advent of wearable sensors, has dramatic consequences in industry, healthcare, and analytics, just as the advent of the internet of things and analytics has consequences in education. When I began my internship at SAS in May, I knew little about the internet of
