“As we move further into the new year, companies may need to harness greater amounts of their data for competition and innovation. This will not only help to solve the challenges surrounding dark data and upcoming data regulations but will also open the door to uncovering new ways to innovate with data and AI.

Data Preparation Will Shift To Support Data Science And Fuel AI

Previously, data scientists worked by the 80/20 rule, with 80% of their days spent finding and preparing data and just 20% on actual data analysis. Thanks to advancements over the last year in cloud-powered data cataloging and data refining, this equation has been flipped. By using technologies that can automatically ingest, classify and organize all of a company’s data sources, data scientists can now spend more time creating and exploring new models and projects with ready-to-go data sets instead of spending long hours priming them manually first.”

Jobseeker SCAM Alert – Be cyberaware!

Jobseeker SCAM Alert

It has been brought to my attention that there are scammers targeting those who may have posted their resumes online to the various job portals and who are actively seeking new employment opportunities.

 

I had previously heard about this when another recruiting agency had posted a similar bulletin less than two weeks ago – however this time they decided to pretend to be me.

The following image depicts a sample of the generic email that these scammers are promoting for all their nefarious intent and purposes. I have also highlighted key parts of this email that you should pay special attention to which should more easily help you identify fake emails and spot any inconsistencies in their attempts to deceive you into giving up your personal information.

You love reading – but can’t find the time?

Category:Education,Learning,Reading

Ok – so for all of “us” who love reading but keep saying we just can’t find the time… ”

amazon kindle“Do you know how many books the average person reads per year?” he said. “Literally two or three, for the entire year. And yet, the average CEO is reading four or five books per month. That’s a drastic difference.”

He went on to explain how he breaks down the habit of reading for people, so that it can be a more actionable process.

I went to Amazon and looked at the medium average number of words per book, and it came out to about 64,000 words. So let’s say the average person reads 200 words per minute. We’re talking about 320 minutes to get through a book, which is about 45 minutes a day, to read a book per week. That makes it a little more realistic,” he said.

He added that 45 minutes spent reading in a day is practically nothing. That’s a lunch break, a little bit at night, maybe reading a bit on the train on the way to work, etc. And that’s without any speed-reading techniques.”

DevOps defined

DevOps

Just a little light reading in case you wanted a DevOps refresh – “DefOps defined.

“DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This speed enables organizations to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market.

How DevOps Works

Under a DevOps model, development and operations teams are no longer “siloed.” Sometimes, these two teams are merged into a single team where the engineers work across the entire application lifecycle, from development and test to deployment to operations, and develop a range of skills not limited to a single function.

In some DevOps models, quality assurance and security teams may also become more tightly integrated with development and operations and throughout the application lifecycle. When security is the focus of everyone on a DevOps team, this is sometimes referred to as DevSecOps.

These teams use practices to automate processes that historically have been manual and slow. They use a technology stack and tooling which help them operate and evolve applications quickly and reliably. These tools also help engineers independently accomplish tasks (for example, deploying code or provisioning infrastructure) that normally would have required help from other teams, and this further increases a team’s velocity.

Great Article – “The Business Of Artificial Intelligence” by Erik Brynjolfsson & Andrew Mcafee

The Business Of Artificial Intelligence – What it can — and cannot — do for your organization 

(for the full article go to https://hbr.org/cover-story/2017/07/the-business-of-artificial-intelligence

 

“For more than 250 years the fundamental drivers of economic growth have been technological innovations. The most important of these are what economists call general-purpose technologies — a category that includes the steam engine, electricity, and the internal combustion engine. Each one catalyzed waves of complementary innovations and opportunities. The internal combustion engine, for example, gave rise to cars, trucks, airplanes, chain saws, and lawnmowers, along with big-box retailers, shopping centers, cross-docking warehouses, new supply chains, and, when you think about it, suburbs. Companies as diverse as Walmart, UPS, and Uber found ways to leverage the technology to create profitable new business models.

The most important general-purpose technology of our era is artificial intelligence, particularly machine learning (ML) — that is, the machine’s ability to keep improving its performance without humans having to explain exactly how to accomplish all the tasks it’s given. Within just the past few years machine learning has become far more effective and widely available. We can now build systems that learn how to perform tasks on their own.”
