Of all the areas of life where artificial intelligence will have an impact, the biggest might well be education. This is because learning is so important, and also because current provision often leaves a lot to be desired. This is not generally the fault of teachers. They are the active ingredient in today’s education system, but they are expensive, and not scalable. In most countries they are under-valued, and burdened by absurd paperwork. They are…

National Instruments announced its intent to acquire the Israeli data analytics startup OptimalPlus for $365 million. The two companies share many of the same enterprise-level customers within the automotive, semiconductor, and electronics industries which is one of the reasons that I believe this acquisition makes a lot of sense. National Instruments is positioning this acquisition as another piece of the puzzle moving toward accelerating its growth and without getting into all the details, I see a…

I’m working on a market study of the system integrators (SIs) who implement warehouse management systems (WMS). I was under the impression that software suppliers write the software, and either SIs or/and the software company implement the software. It’s not that simple. Sometimes the system integrators write software that complements the WMS solutions that they implement. These SIs have learned the weaknesses in various systems and have written complementary applications to close the gaps. One…

Consumers are inundated every day with ads for products and services. The number of options is exhausting. What makes consumers stop and pay attention? As brands work to answer this question, they become more creative as a result. In fact, many are diving into the benefits of big data analytics. For instance, in 2016 Starbucks started using AI to send personalized offerings to its customers via email. Beyond customizing drinks to match personal tastes, the company uses…

Big Data systems are often composed of information extraction, preprocessing, processing, ingestion and integration, data analysis, interface and visualization components. Different big data systems will have different requirements and as such apply different architecture design configurations. Hence a proper architecture for the big data system is important to achieve the provided requirements. Yet, although many different concerns in big data systems are addressed the notion of architecture seems to be more implicit. In this paper…

Big data is used on an extensive scale for accomplishing a plethora of objectives such as prevention of credit card frauds, intervention, and anticipation of hardware failures. It is also useful in the rerouting of traffic to avoid congestion. With the aid of real-time applications and interactions of big data, you will be able to guide your customers. Firstly i would like you to have a read on What is Big Data? How we contribute…

Big Data analytics comprises the below steps: Data Collection – collect un-structured and structured data from variety of conventional and non conventional sources including machine sensors.Data Storage – store data in robust, distributed, scalable storage based on commodity hardware with replication copies.Descriptive Analytics – summarize data and develop data visualization.Predictive Analytics – develop model using available data using supervised learning algorithms.Prescriptive Analytics – develop story for leveraging predictions. We still have not discussed skeptical view…
