Back to the Future: 2018 Big Data and Data Science Prognostications | @ExpoDX #DX #BigData #Analytics

“We should study Science Fiction in order to understand what someday could become Science Fact.” – Dr. Who?  Doc Brown?  Kodos and Kang? This is the time of year when everyone makes his or her predictions for 2018.  I have my predictions as well, but wanted to do something a bit more fun.  So I thought I’d look backwards to the state of technology 50 years ago to gain some insights that we can use to make projections about 2018. That is, what “predictions” made in the 1950’s might tell us about 2018. However, it’s really hard to find predictions about the future made in the 1950’s.  There was no Internet or Social Media or Reality TV, so I found the next best proxy…sci-fi movies!  I decided to review the most popular sci-fi movies from 1950’s, and provide my perspective as to what these movies might tell us about 2018.  Maybe drink a Tab or Fresca as you read thi...

The Hotel California of #AI | @CloudExpo @ReneBuest #ArtificialIntelligence

In 1977, the Eagles released "Hotel California", a song about drugs and the effects an addiction has on people. Putting "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device" in the context of our digital lifestyle today we find a lot of truth. There is a reason why Google provides most of its services for free or why Amazon wants us to have an Echo in every home or why Facebook has become our directory of "friends." What looks pretty convenient is a threat. It is a threat to the end consumers but also a threat to the established economy. And even if we have the choice to check out any time - we will never leave. The Feast of the Beasts After already two decades, the Internet giants - speaking of Amazon, Google, Facebook, Alibaba and Baidu - are still collecting tons of data, filling their databases with information of everyone's knowledge, opinions, recommendations,...
