“Information technology is revolutionizing products, from appliances to cars to mining equipment. Products once composed solely of mechanical and electrical parts have become complex systems combining hardware, sensors, electronics, and software that connect through the internet in myriad ways. These “smart, connected products” offer exponentially expanding opportunities for new functionality,
Some of the hardest changes, are the most important. The massive shift to digitalize industries, sometimes referred to as Industry 4.0 is a great example of difficult, yet critical changes that need to happen. Just as the Internet of Things (IoT) is set to shake up tons of other industries
The initial promise of artificial intelligence as a broad – based tool for solving business problems has given way to something much more limited but still quite useful: algorithms from data science that make predictions better than we have been able to do so far. In contrast to standard statistical
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a seismic shift in how the world goes to work. Apart from essential services, remote work is the new normal, mandated everywhere – even in organizations that never previously offered remote work options. Lack of VPN infrastructure or its ability to scale, legacy systems that were never designed for remote work, previous reluctance to implement work from home, poor cybersecurity hygiene – all of these pose challenges for organizations trying to adjust to this new normal.
Most of us are aware of artificial intelligence (AI) being an increasingly present part of our everyday lives. But, many of us would be quite surprised to learn of some of the skills AI already knows how to do.
According IoT Analytics, there are over 17 Billion connected devices in the world as of 2018, with over 7 Billion of these “internet of things” (IoT) devices. The Internet of Things is the collection of those various sensors, devices, and other technologies that aren’t meant to directly interact with consumers, like phones or computers. Rather, IoT devices help provide information, control, and analytics to connect a world of hardware devices to each other and the greater internet. With the advent of cheap sensors and low cost connectivity, IoT devices are proliferating.
When it comes to social media, the suite of options and risk of blunders can be daunting for anyone, especially top-tier executives where recent history (a la Elon Musk) shows the stakes are high. So, in the age of profiles, posts, DMs, and stories, here are the top ten things
