Is Maching Learning the New AI Rabbit Hole ?
Sat, Apr 9th 2016 1:23a   Jack Dausman
Machine-learning is a hot topic, and right smack in the early adopter phase. MIT Technology Review quotes Jeff Dean of Google for it's popularity: "The enrollment in computer science program machine-learning classes is shooting through the roof."But, how applicable is machine-learning to most problems ? Is it a powerful, but niche, technology ? Prolog is a good historic parallel, as it promised to apply AI processing that would revolutionize computing analytics. Turns out, Prolog excels at a

MIT Media lab has built a GUI in front of the vast data store of US public records. It's the biggest time-swamp I've stepped into since the 2nd season of Daredevil. It's an amazing aggregation of data into visualization sets. It is simply, "the most comprehensive website and visualization engine of public US Government data." Look into a location and it'll break down per capita demographics from housing to health and safety. Even more interesting, to me, than the impressive interface, and

Canonical and Microsoft are integrating their desktop platforms ? I'm having difficulty wrapping my mind around this coalition. After all, Canonical's #1 bug fix with Ubuntu was to address Microsoft's monopoly: Microsoft has a majority market share in the new desktop PC marketplace. This is a bug which Ubuntu and other projects are meant to fix. As the philosophy of the Ubuntu Project states, "Our work is driven by a belief that software should be free and accessible to all." What's this

Thinking through IoT from MIT Sloan Management

IoT is just at the early adopter stage, which is the peak of the hype cycle. What's that meme about not being able to spell idiot without IoT ? Michael Fitzgerald has a terrific piece on "Hype vs. Reality: A Reality Check on the Internet of Things" in the MIT Sloan Management Review. He covers nine topics of relevant interest. The one that sticks out for me speaks to the security of IoT as under fire before it even exists. In a reference to Cisco's Chris Young's interview with The Register,

Every Saturday I have a video chat with my Dad, who is 87 and 3,000 miles away. On one hand, it's amazing to be able to communicate so simply and directly. His phone is voice controlled, "OK Google," and his transportation has been happily Uberized. However, my present is his future, which was imagined in the thirties and forties. No matter how much incredible tech is created or changes are made in geo-politics--it's still a downer from the dreams of yesteryear. The take-away lesson ? We st

"Visual assets have taken on a broader role and are responsible for continually and consistently representing your brand, communicating your value proposition, and cultivating brand image on a daily basis, " so says Jerry Kane is an associate professor of information systems at the Carroll School of Management at Boston College and the MIT Sloan Management Review guest editor for the Digital Business Initiative.
