One of the strangest features of quantum mechanics is also potentially its most useful: entanglement. By harnessing the ability for two particles to be intimately intertwined across great distances, researchers are working to create technologies that even Einstein could not imagine, from quantum computers that can run millions of calculations
As a species, humanity has witnessed three previous industrial revolutions: first came steam/water power, followed by electricity, then computing. Now, we’re in the midst of a fourth industrial revolution, one driven by artificial intelligence and big data. I like to refer to this as the “Intelligence Revolution.” But whatever we
The Digital Revolution. Once again, society stands at the precipice of a new global economy, a new workforce, a new everything. In this new-age revolution, data is the cornerstone, human stewards are more critical than ever and the hourglass of adoption is shrinking. Disputes over the ownership, management and use of data command a global stage, influencing new legislature, impacting international relations, determining corporate survival and introducing a new concept of global currency. Human beings are and will remain, the single biggest factor in successful artificial intelligence, automation, and analytics. Corporations and global economies need to harness the power of both to stand any chance at surviving their shrinking half-life and fueling prosperity in the Digital Revolution. Let’s explore why.
We are at the beginning of a 4th industrial revolution and educators are faced with preparing a generation of students for many jobs that don’t even exist yet. Since the term STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) was coined back in 2001, there has been growing interest in this learning philosophy to better prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s jobs. However, to adequately prepare the future workforce, another acronym is gaining popularity: STEAM, which adds arts to the mix.
Acronyms like AI (artificial intelligence) and IoT (Internet of Things) are woven into dialogue in the same frequency at major, global business forums as they are in the innovation centers of Silicon Valley and events like Mobile World Congress.
