Disposable Technology: A Concept Whose Time Has Come

Imagine…imagine that you have been challenged to play Steph Curry, the greatest 3-point shooter in the history of the National Basketball Association, in a game of 1x1.  Yea, a pretty predictable outcome for 99.9999999% of us.

But now image that Steph Curry has to wear a suit of knight’s armor as part of that 1x1 game.  The added weight, the obstructed vision, and the lack of flexibility, agility and mobility would probably allow even the average basketball…

Importance of Thinking Differently…Hint: Don’t Pave the Cow Path

Moo…

There is this very intriguing Enterprise Car Rental commercial on TV (I’m old school and still watch my commercials on a television) that shows a glimpse into future driving behaviors enabled by autonomous vehicles (see Figure 1).…

In Big Data, It’s Not the Volume that’s Important, It’s the Granularity

In many of my presentations and lectures, I have made the following declaration:

In Big Data, it isn’t the volume of data that’s interesting, it’s the granularity; it’s the ability to build detailed analytic or behavioral profiles on every human and every device that ultimately drives monetization.

Ever-larger volumes of aggregated data enable organizations to spot trends – what products are hot, what movies or TV shows are trendy, what restaurants or destinations are…

Smart Manufacturing and What It Means to Win the 1% Race

I had the great fortune to sit on an Ericsson-Wired Magazine panel with some outstanding thought leaders to debate the ramifications of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  We debated whether the era was a revolution or just an evolution (I argued revolution because it will force organizations to think differently about their business and operational models) and whether IoT had failed so far (I said that to date it had “under-performed” from a business value…

Interweaving Design Thinking and Data Science to Unleash Economic Value of Data

Did you ever have a concept that you knew was right, but just couldn’t find the right words to articulate that concept?  Okay, well welcome to my nightmare.  I know that Data Science and Design Thinking share many common characteristics including the power of “might” (i.e., that “might” be a better predictor of performance), “learning through failing” (which is the only way to determine where the edges of the solution really reside), and the innovation liberation…

Data Curation: Weaving Raw Data into Business Gold

The Big Data craze caught fire with a provocative declaration that “Data is the New Oil”; that data will fuel the economic growth in the 21stcentury in much the same way that oil fueled the economic growth of the 20thcentury.  The “New Oil” analogy was a great way to contextualize the economic value of data; to give the Big Data conversation an easily recognizable face.  The Economist recently declared data “…

Why Data Science Development Process is like Playing Game Boy® Final Fantasy

Describing the Data Science analytics development process has always been a struggle for me.  The corporate world is full of linear processes.  Major monolithic enterprise applications – ERP, MRP, SFA, CRM systems – have been architected to reduce operational complexity via a series of interlocking, heavily-engineered (and re-engineered) linear processes (though I suspect that anyone who has survived an SAP ERP implementation would take issue with my “reduce…

Real-World Data Science Challenge: When Is “Good Enough” Actually “Good Enough”

Nothing like a devastating catastrophe to bring a bit of reality into the world of IoT and data science.  The recent crashes of the new Boeing 737 Max have been attributed to a single point of failure – a sensor – in the design of the complex navigation system[1]. 

To summarize the situation:

  • Boeing’s new 737 MAX included larger, more efficient engines than the previous generation and as such, the engines were…

Economic Value of Learning and Why Google Open Sourced TensorFlow

Blog key points:

  • Google open-sourced TensorFlow to gain tens of thousands of more users across hundreds (thousands) of new use cases to improve the predictive effectiveness of the platform that runs Google’s business.
  • In the digital economy, the economies of learning are more powerful than the economies of scale.
  • Organizations must avoid building orphaned analytics—one-off analytics developed to address a specific business need but are never “operationalized”…
