Internet of Things (IoT) has generated a ton of excitement and furious activity. However, I sense some discomfort and even dread in the IoT ecosystem about the future – typical when a field is not growing at a hockey-stick pace . . .
“History may not repeat itself but it rhymes”, Mark Twain may have said. What history does IoT rhyme with?
I have often used this diagram to crisply define IoT.…Continue
Like it or not, data-driven artificial intelligence algorithms and other high-tech robotic applications are coming to fill our jobs. An analysis by PwC estimated that up to 38 percent of current American jobs could be taken over by machines within the next 15 years.
Even white-collar jobs aren’t safe, since algorithms are capable of governing sophisticated tasks for machines in ways that previously were unthinkable, such as writing or distributing pharmaceuticals. The transition has…
And 92 percent of all (positive) integers have a factor under 1,000. And how many have a factor under 6? Can you guess the answer? Read more to find out.
Clearly, the vast majority of big numbers have small factors. Also, the chance to be a prime becomes incredibly small, the bigger the number. I stumbled upon these problems when looking for new algorithms to factor a product of two large primes (more on this coming soon.) I then decided to find out what the proportion of integers…Continue
I was joking when I entered on Google, “Where was my coworker yesterday?” After reviewing the responses that appeared from the search engine, I continued, “What did she eat for breakfast?” Sometimes the responses to my everyday questions seem insightful - on a certain level, interesting and intriguing. Usually the quality of the responses is quite poor. I assume therefore that the algorithms operating in the background don’t “understand” the sense of what I am asking. If I were to ask,…Continue
