Leveraging Agent-based Models (ABM) and Digital Twins to Prevent Injuries

On the surface, preventing injuries to professional-caliber athletes would seem to have little in common with preventing operational failures for a machine (i.e., autonomous vehicle, locomotive, airplane, CT Scan).  However, both athletes and machines deal with inter-twined complex systems (where the interactions of one complex system can have a ripple effect on others) that can have significant impact on their operational effectiveness.My son Max, the Director of Sport Science at Resilient…See More

Why Digital Transformation Is So Dang Hard?

I recently talked to Clint Boulton, author of “Why digital transformations are lagging” about why Digital Transformation is so hard. His article raises lots of interesting points about the inhibitors of Digital Transformation, so I thought I’d share my thoughts about how to overcome some of these challenges.Forrester published a report entitled “…See More

Open Peer-to-Peer Communications to Facilitate Real-time Insights Sharing

My blog “Blockchain + Analytics: Enabling Smart IOT” drew some great feedback asking me to clarify my autonomous vehicle example that used blockchain as a means of near real-time, peer-to-peer communications between clusters of intelligent devices and machines.  But first, some background.Edge analytics within an Internet of Things (IOT) world is very different than traditional big data…See More

It's Not Digital Transformation; It’s “Intelligence Transformation” We Seek

Forrester published a report titled “The Sorry State of Digital Transformation in 2018” (love the brashness of the title) that found that 21% of 1,559 business and IT decision makers consider their digital transformations complete.  Complete? Say what?!The concept of “Digital Transformation” is confusing because many CIO’s (at least 21%) and their business counterparts think “Digital Transformation”…See More

Using Design to Drive Business Outcomes, or Uncovering What You Don’t Know That You Already Know

Okay, that may be the most complicated title that I’ve ever read, but here’s the point of that title:  Most people don’t know what they already know.  Maybe spun another way, is that people don’t realize how much they really know, that much of what they really know is buried behind general rules, rules of thumbs and simple heuristics.  But those heuristics get in the way of one’s real knowledge.  And that’s the real secret to effective design thinking – helping subject matter experts to uncover…See More

Importance of Metadata in a Big Data World

Updated from original posted on April 17, 2014The importance of metadata only continues to grow as organizations are realizing that to fully exploit the business and operational potential of machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence requires that the raw data be enhanced with metadata.  And while we have growing volumes of  actual data, there is even more data, or metadata, around the usage and source of the actual data.Metadata is defined as a set of data that describes and…See More
