Given the rapid pace at which technology around has evolved, there are a lot of changes that companies these days must embrace. Perhaps the most significant, as well as the crucial difference in the context of technologies for business, is the move to the cloud. Yes, companies all over the world are moving their data along with their entire IT operations to the cloud, but why? More than a few reasons come to mind, starting with the most rudimentary benefits: Digital transformation. Cloud…Continue

Summary: The most important developments in Deep Learning and AI in the last year may not be technical at all, but rather a major change in business model. In the space of about six months all the majors have made their Deep Learning IP open source, hoping to gain on the competition from the power of the broader developer base and wide adoption.
The world that we live in today becomes more technologically advanced by the day. These advancements have done wonders for society as a whole and have offered much improvement in productivity in the workplace. However, as more applications are being run and more data stored online, in addition to rapid cloud expansion, there is one obvious parallel that is seemingly unavoidable – increased security risks.…Continue

A look at a number of recent reports and surveys shows that while there is an appetite for using data more wisely, and an intention amongst top executives to use data more there are still many companies not using data as effectively as they could.
According to Hewlett Packard
Cloud data replication is good for backups, but what else might you do with it? For forward-looking users, data replication in the cloud is also a lever for better information, increased autonomy, enhanced productivity, and bigger business opportunities down the line. By conserving an untouched valid reference copy of data, users are free to process or change the other replicated instances, according to their individual…Continue

DataJoy is an unbelievably fantastic way for a working data scientist to have their favorite tools at hand. I am a minimalist when it comes to being mobile, whether working on the road, traveling for leisure, and sometimes both. I do not like to keep files on my laptop and I do not, for the most part, like to worry about keeping updated applications on my laptop. I have tried as much as possible to push my life into the cloud. Yes, I travel with a chromebook. Yes, I use…Continue

Wearable technology is a type of device that is worn by a user and often includes tracking information related to their health and fitness which it can then upload to the cloud. Other wearable tech includes devices that have motion sensors and cameras to take photos and sync with your mobile devices. Wearable devices can be quite useful, but they may present a huge danger to your privacy.
So far, the market has consisted mainly of early adopter businesses…

Open source and proprietary cloud services both aim to provide end-users with reliable software. Some users prefer the backing of a large company like Amazon or Microsoft, with a tailored list of compatible programs and services. Others prefer the interoperability and flexibility of open source alternatives like OpenStack or Eucalyptus. It's not necessarily an issue of right or wrong, for some people open source software is the obvious choice. Those who want more managed solutions…Continue

Companies build or rent grid machines when data length doesn't fit into HDFS, or the latency of parallel interconnects is too slow in the cloud. This review explores the overlap of the two paradigms at the ends of the parallel processing latency spectrum. The comparison is almost poetic and leads to many other comparisons in languages, interfaces, formats, and hardware, but there is amazingly little overlap.
