How AI/ML Could Return Manufacturing Prowess Back to US

I grew up in a small manufacturing town in Northeast Iowa.  The factory in my hometown made tractors (no surprise given that it was Iowa), but eventually the economics of cheap foreign labor and an interconnected global economy caught up with that factory – as it did with many US-based manufacturers – and soon the factory closed, and many people were laid off.But the technology world continues to evolve – especially with respect to IoT, Data Science and AI/ML – and so comes an opportunity for…See More

The Data Lake Chronicles: Pitching Through Pain, Vampire Indecisions and Second Surgeries

There is a phrase in baseball about pitchers “pitching through pain” that refers to pitchers taking the mound to pitch even though they have aches and pains – sore arms, stiff joints, blisters, strained muscles, etc. The idea is that these pitchers are so tough that they can pitch effectively even though they are not quite physically right. However, when the human system is asked to do something that it’s not…See More

What is Explainable AI and Why is it Needed?

Imagine an advanced fighter aircraft is patrolling a hostile conflict area and a bogie suddenly appears on radar accelerating aggressively at them. The pilot, with the assistance of an Artificial Intelligence co-pilot, has a fraction of a second to decide what action to take – ignore, avoid, flee, bluff, or attack.  The costs associated with False Positive and False Negative are substantial – a wrong decision that could potentially provoke a war or lead to the death of the pilot.  What is one…See More

Untapped Economic Assets? How to Monetize Your Dark Data

What if you had a corporate asset that was never used?  Your first response might be that corporate asset obviously has no value.  And you’d probably be right. However, there are costs – acquisition costs, maintenance costs, storage costs, depreciation costs, salvage costs – associated with all assets. So, to incur all of those costs and then not do anything with that asset would be fiduciary negligence at its worse. Welcome to the world of dark data! And it’s not just dark data; it’s Dracula…See More
