Data Analytics: Getting Past the Easy Part (the Technology)

| June 19, 2018

Everyone is seeking the holy grail of data analytics and, now, its derivatives – artificial intelligence and machine learning. The tools and platforms to accomplish this are powerful, and more programs across the country are offering training in data science and analytics skills. So what’s the holdup? Essentially, organizations are getting in their own way. In a recent analysis, Niko Mohr and Holger Hürtgen, both with McKinsey, observe that “the technical part is always the easier one to solve.”

A BRAND NEW CHIP DESIGN WILL DRIVE AI DEVELOPMENT

Article | February 20, 2020

The world is now heading into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, as Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, described it in 2016. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a key driver in this revolution and with it, machine learning is critical. But critical to the whole process is the need to process a tremendous amount of data which in turns boosts the demand for computing power exponentially.A study by OpenAI suggested that the computing power required for AI training surged by more than 300,000 times between 2012 and 2018. This represents a doubling of computing power every three months and two weeks; a number that is significantly quicker than Moore’s Law which has traditionally measured the time it takes to double computing power. Conventional methodology is no longer enough for such significant leaps, and we desperately need a different computing architecture to stay ahead in the game.

CAN QUANTUM COMPUTING BE THE NEW BUZZWORD

Article | March 30, 2020

Quantum Mechanics created their chapter in the history of the early 20th Century. With its regular binary computing twin going out of style, quantum mechanics led quantum computing to be the new belle of the ball! While the memory used in a classical computer encodes binary ‘bits’ – one and zero, quantum computers use qubits (quantum bits). And Qubit is not confined to a two-state solution, but can also exist in superposition i.e., qubits can be employed at 0, 1 and both 1 and 0 at the same time.

Why data analytics is helping telcos keep the lights on during unprecedented times

Article | April 8, 2020

Our ‘new normal’, as we adapt to living and working in a COVID-19 era highlights the mission critical role that technology leadership continues to play in all our lives. One where having almost instantaneous access to data and the ability to communicate from anywhere has never been more business critical.Last week, Australia’s major telecommunication service providers were granted authorisation by the ACCC to collaborate to keep critical services operating effectively during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

A Tale of Two Data-Centric Services

Article | April 13, 2020

The acronym DMaaS can refer to two related but separate things: data center management-as-a-service referred to here by its other acronym, DCMaaS and data management-as-a-service. The former looks at infrastructure-level questions such as optimization of data flows in a cloud service, the latter refers to master data management and data preparation as applied to federated cloud services.DCMaaS has been under development for some years; DMaaS is slightly younger and is a product of the growing interest in machine learning and big data analytics, along with increasing concern over privacy, security, and compliance in a cloud environment.DMaaS responds to a developing concern over data quality in machine learning due to the large amount of data that must be used for training and the inherent dangers posed by divergence in data structure from multiple sources. To use the rapidly growing array of cloud data, including public cloud information and corporate internal information from hybrid clouds, you must aggregate data in a normalized way so it can be available for model training and processing with ML algorithms. As data volumes and data diversity increase, this becomes increasingly difficult.
