Whether it’s the micrometer I use when adjusting features of the 1930’s tractor engine in my 1962 Morgan roadster, the digital thermometer we bought for the pandemic, the microwave oven we have in our kitchen, the Apple watch I wear or the cloud-based applications I access – software is…
Ten rules to apply evaluating supplier high level claims regarding AI.
Should we be patient given disappointing AI implementation rates? Is AI smart enough? What can we learn from fruit fly brains? What else should you know about facial recognition technology? How are Google, Microsoft, Amazon, IBM, and FaceBook progressing on their AI work? How valuable is AI to FinTech? What other newsletters are in the works? And where in the world will I be in March and April?
A major advance in mapping the connectome (anatomy) of the fruit fly’s brain shows us how far away we are from being able to describe the fine-grained physiology of the human brain. Watch out for deceptive metaphors like learning, intelligence, cognition and Kurzweil’s Singularity.
Predictions of things past are far easier than predictions of the future. Most predictions are more likely wrong than right. Learn from that experience.
Despite limitations, voice enablement will become ubiquitous.
By 2025, one third of robotic process automation (RPA) projects will reveal opportunities to accelerate and diversify revenues, but over half of those opportunities will be missed by obsessive focus on the bottom line.
By 2025, an anti-tech underground will develop. This movement will focus on disrupting/attacking high tech in business. The roots will be in a displaced workforce focusing on automation, robotics, and AI. This movement will begin with the cancellation of tech jobs. Programmers, analysts, project managers will be the target of increasing lay-offs. In the…
