Rich Data, Poor Data: What the Data Rich Do - That the Data Poor and the Data Middle Class Do Not! Generally speaking, there are two kinds of companies in the world: data rich and data poor. The richest of the data rich are easy to name: Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple. But you don’t need to be at the top of this list to use data to create value. You need to have the tools in place to turn information (data) into action. That’s what the data rich do that the data poor and the data middle class do not. The Data Rich Treat Data Like Cash First-party data (the data collected directly from your business activities) is a core asset, and the data rich treat it like cash. They keep their data well organized, accessible and as safe as technology permits. The data rich know that data is a nascent form of currency, and while it is not precisely fungible, it can be traded. Da... (more)

Should You Fear Artificial Intelligence | @CloudExpo #AI #IoT #Cloud

Opining about the future of AI at the recent Brilliant Minds event at Symposium Stockholm, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt rejected warnings from Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking about the dangers of AI, saying, “In the case of Stephen Hawking, although a brilliant man, he’s not a computer scientist. Elon is also a brilliant man, though he too is a physicist, not a computer scientist.” This absurd dismissal of Musk and Hawking was in response to an absurd question about “the possibility of an artificial superintelligence trying to destroy mankind in the near future.” Schmidt...

Apple CarPlay, Android Auto: Sanity Check | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #API

Apple CarPlay lets your car display a familiar, iOS-like interface. So too with Android Auto and its Google Now-ish display. But your new car has a built-in set of similar features that are ergonomically and technologically integrated. Should you plug your smartphone into the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto USB port and connect it to your car’s infotainment system, or just car-mount your smartphone, plug it into a charger and use it separately? I recently picked up my new car, which features a very high-tech, dual-screen multimedia interface. I was forced to purchase the top-of-the-... (more)

IoT, Smart Home and Wearables | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #Wearables

Internet of Things (IoT) Every physical object or “thing” that can be embedded with sensors will be embedded with sensors. Whether you call it the Internet of Things, the Internet of Everything, M2M, a smarter planet, the Industrial Internet or something else, the trend is clear. With so much activity and interest, it is unfortunate that a de facto communications standard has not emerged. However, there is progress (or managed conflict) in the right direction. The AllSeen Alliance and the Open Interconnect Consortium are just two of the major organizations vying for IoT superiori... (more)

Bezos Center for Innovation to Inspire Would-Be Entrepreneurs

What’s an e-commerce tycoon to do after funding everything from nuclear fusion startups to commercial spaceflight ventures? Why, help develop a museum exhibit to inspire young folks and teach them about innovation, of course. After more than two years of development and $10 million from Jeff Bezos’ own pockets, the Museum of History and Industry will open the doors to the Bezos Center for Innovation on October 12th. Not only does the center aim to help visitors learn about “the importance of innovation” through interactive exhibits, but it will toot Seattle’s horn for being “the ... (more)
