Autonomous to Smart: Importance of Artificial Intelligence

On Saturday February 11, 2017, my daughter and her friend were driving from a basketball game in Chico back to our home in Palo Alto. Unfortunately, due to several days of heavier than normal rains, the Oroville Dam spillway broke and flooded many of the roads between Chico and Palo Alto. My daughter’s smartphone mapping application wasn’t aware of the sudden danger, and proceeded to send her into the heart of the flooding (see Figure 1).…See More

What tomorrow’s business leaders need to know about Machine Learning?

Sometimes I write a blog just to formulate and organize a point of view, and I think it’s time that I pull together the bounty of excellent information about Machine Learning. This is a topic with which business leaders must become comfortable, especially tomorrow’s business leaders (tip for my next semester University of San Francisco business students!). Machine learning is a key capability that will help organizations drive optimization and monetization opportunities, and there have been…See More

"Ashwin, good catch on BigML only being free for the first 16MB.  I'll edit the blog.  16MB was more than sufficient for my students, but not nearly sufficient for deeper analytics. Clustering is an Unsupervised technique, so all the…"

"Awesome article Question : The Image2 does not show which is Supervised and which is Unsupervised, or am I missing something? Errata : BigML is free for the first 16MB of data, not 16GB. Thx"

"I agree that, the "digital twin" needs to be extended to all entities including humans, societies, governments whatever else to help discern many invisible insights into all systems as suggested here as well as elsewhere    …"

Embracing Conflict to Fuel Digital Innovation

When talking to clients about their business goals, most business executives are pretty clear as to what they want to accomplish, such as reducing customer churn or reducing inventory costs or improving quality of care or improving product line profitability. But these “one dimensional” business initiatives really don’t push the organization’s innovative thinking. For example, I can easily reduce marketing costs if I significantly reduce advertising and promotional spending. Or I can easily…See More

Me, Myself and Digital Twins

It’s hard to get into the world of the Internet of Things (IOT) without eventually talking about Digital Twins. I was first exposed to the concept of Digital Twins when working with GE. Great concept. But are Digital Twins only relevant to physical machines such as wind turbines, jet engines, and locomotives? What can we learn about the concept of digital twins that we can apply more broadly – to other physical entities (like contracts and agreements) and even humans?What is a Digital Twin?A…See More

My job has the great advantage of bringing me in touch with some outstanding and truly brilliant people.  As an example, last year I spoke at the PrecisionAg Vision Conference in Phoenix (and I’ll be speaking there again this fall on October 12), and ran into a number of companies that were applying data science and big data principals to the world of agriculture.  Having grown up in Charles City, Iowa, I have a special place in my heart for farming and the importance of agriculture to the…
