Enterprise hits and misses – talking IoT and blockchain futures, while data privacy is bought and sold
"In our triumphant/petulant new year's return, hits and misses features the impact of IoT, blockchain and cleantech. Retail omni-woes are nudged off center stage by a slew of data privacy controversies. Your whiffs include an underwhelming war of the machines."

Mind-Reading, Self-Replicating: A Look Back at the Year’s Best AI Stories
"Nothing makes us potentially more human than the ability to learn from our mistakes. One might find something similar in machines in what’s called reinforcement learning, but as researchers over at OpenAI point out, designing the reward systems behind reinforcement learning models can become quite complicated, and may actually discourage machines from exploring possibilities beyond the tasked goal. Instead, this team proposes an open-source alternative they call Hindsight Experience Replay (HER)."

Humans vs. Algorithms: A Look Back at 2018
"Yet the march of technology is unmistakable, and sometimes a little ominous. China deployed facial recognition technology at checkpoints around the country. But Taylor Swift used a similar technology to spot stalkers at her concerts. And the same technique is also being used by historians to identify people in Civil War photos. It’s even being used to track and manage populations of animals — sometimes, endangered species — leading to what New York magazine described as “a growing cornucopia of animal faces loaded into databases.”

The Keys to the Future of AI Democratization
"As more companies try to democratize AI on their own, they’re discovering it’s not the easiest thing to do. But companies are eager to speed up the process. In fact, according to a survey, 81 percent of IT leaders are currently investing in or plan to invest in AI, as CIOs have mandated that AI needs to be integrated into their entire technology stack.

But before businesses can get to an AI proof of concept or invest in operational AI applications, they need to have a data quality and governance strategy in place."

Event Report - AWS reinvent 2018 - Push, push - AI and hardware
"On the concern side, the AWS portfolio is broader and deeper than ever before. AWS keeps staying with the Chinese menu philosophy, and it means massive choice… but staying with the analogy, when a Chinese restaurant adds a full menu every year, even the most loyal customers will have a hard time to keep an overview of the menu – and manage to repeat-order the same dishes (aka products) at the next visit (aka implementation project)"

Event Report - AWS reInvent 2017 - AWS grows and grows...
"One of the emerging concerns is around Machine Learning. Expectations that AWS may announces its own neural network and compete with Google’s TensorFlow seem unlikely to happen at this point. Who would have thought that AWS would enter multiple partnerships with Seattle neighbor Microsoft on Machine Learning? The risks for AWS are tangible, if any other IaaS vendor can show faster, cheaper and better Machine Learning performance, it will create a magnetic effect on data. And with data goes load, not to mention that Machine Learning itself creates a lot of load. And load is the mother milk of IaaS vendors success."

Event Report - Ceridian Insights 2018 - Ceridian is on a roll
"On the concern side, Ceridian needs to push the envelope in the direction of Machine Learning / AI in general and voice as the new UI more. Last year at the user conference the vendor showed the most impressive voice demos of all HCM vendors in 2017 – a worker talking to Alexa (?) for an understanding of their shift situation and executing a shift swap. No demo this year, the vendor citing keynote time reasons… Behind an effective Machine Learning / AI strategy is the move to public cloud, to be able to leverage cheaper compute, spare capacity, low cost storage and overall compute elasticity. And Ceridian says the Dayforce suite runs on public cloud IaaS (I think Azure) but needs to move there for good. When the whole industry is moving to IaaS, it’s time for all vendors to move there to level the field."

Three Ways Machine Learning Is Revolutionizing Zero Trust Security
"Zero Trust Security provides digital businesses with the security strategy they need to keep growing by scaling across each new perimeter and endpoint created as a result of growth. ZTS in the context of Next-Gen Access is built on four main pillars: (1) verify the user, (2) validate their device, (3) limit access and privilege, and (4) learn and adapt. The fourth pillar heavily relies on machine learning to discover risky user behavior and apply for conditional access without impacting user experience by looking for contextual and behavior patterns in access data."
