Google and IBM still trying desperately to move cloud market-share needle | TechCrunch
While becoming cross-platform compatible isn’t exactly a radical notion in general, it most certainly is for a company like IBM, which if it had its druthers and a bit more market share, would probably have been content to maintain the status quo. But if the majority of your customers are pursuing a multi-cloud strategy, it might be a good idea for you to jump on the bandwagon — and that’s precisely what IBM has done by opening up access to Watson across clouds in this fashion.

Why Multicloud Will Win When the Cloud Wars Go Global
Data privacy is increasingly critical, particularly as breaches become both more frequent and more devastating. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is certainly a reflection of what will become more tightly monitored if not regulated space.

But even with GDPR, there will be industry-specific regulations that mandate protections, especially around data that is of security interest. In some cases, enterprises will find that tight control over data, being mindful of national borders, provides the right balance of risk mitigation and control."

Google AI Achieves “Alien” Superhuman Mastery of Chess and Go in Mere Hours
"And it seems that Google’s subsidiary DeepMind has once again gotten one step closer to this goal with AlphaZero, their latest AI development. Their recently published pre-print research outlined how AlphaZero succeeded in handily beating one of the world’s top chess engines — after teaching itself and mastering the game in four hours and reaching a “superhuman” level of play in a mere 24 hours in not only chess but in two other different types of board games."

The Hidden 80/20 of IT Spend: Where to Mine for Savings - by @jasondbusch
"On the webinar, I’ll be sharing quite a bit more on the topic of how best to drive IT category savings, as well as picking the brains of category experts who have much deeper knowledge than I do. But for now, I’ll tease you with a few ideas below on the category savings side. (Hint: Driving IT category savings starts with the same strategies and techniques that you would apply to other areas from a strategic sourcing and category management perspective.)"

How GE Digital Tackled the Stateful / Stateless Problem for Industrial IoT
"As engineers (including those at the IETF) have come to realize, persistent data will always be a necessary resource for both server-side applications and client-side apps. And the need for the Internet of Things (IoT) applications to maintain a reliable, persistent network of connected sensors and apparati, makes a stable and self-contained network state data platform vitally necessary."

Why Artificial Intelligence Needs Neuroscience for Inspiration
"Yet, despite this ongoing interdisciplinary sharing, Hassabis and his colleagues assert that the rift of intelligence between human and machine still remains quite large. This gap is due to our incomplete knowledge of biological brains, the underlying mechanisms of cognition and of the nature of consciousness itself. Similarly, this disparity is also due to the fact that the complex computations that drive AI can be an inscrutable “black box” — it works, but we don’t really know why."

MIT’s New AI Data Extraction System Teaches Itself by Surfing the Web
"The new system could be a boon to accelerating research tasks that may have required more tedious, manual effort from humans previously. Not only would a system like this save time, it could also save lives: the researchers foresee that such a system could be used by healthcare providers, as a tool for aggregating patient histories under a more unified structure, which would improve the quality of care that a patient receives."

Google’s DeepMind AI Now Capable of ‘Deep Neural Reasoning’
"But DeepMind, Google’s artificial intelligence research lab, has now gone yet another step further. Having created the AlphaGo software that was able to master the complex board game known as Go, DeepMind has now made what they are calling a “memory-augmented neural network” that uses a kind of external “working memory” that helps it to learn how to complete complex tasks on its own, using human-inspired memory and reasoning, instead of being programmed to do so."

GE Digital Provides a Report of Progress on Digital Industrial Efforts
"GE Digital executives went to great lengths to point out their belief that industrial based IoT applications and network opportunities will be a far larger market segments that consumer focused IoT applications, pegging the latter segment as greater than $225 billion by 2020. That stated, during open Q&A, executives indicated a belief the 2017-18 timeframe will be the point of industry inflection in IoT enabled efforts. From this author’s lens, that is fairly consistent with comments and observations we’ve heard from other IoT focused technology and services providers."

Mossberg: The Steve Jobs I Knew Isn’t in This Movie
"Steve Jobs wasn’t perfect. He was difficult. He was unnecessarily rude and brusque at times. He lied. But he also mellowed and grew as a person, and that mellowing coincided with the best part of his career. Mr. Sorkin opts to hide all of that from his audience. The best of the real Steve Jobs story begins to unfold just as the “Steve Jobs” story ends."
