In a world that operates on billions of digits every day, humans are too slow and inattentive. To adapt, we must automate the processing of millions of complex transactions on a daily basis, at speeds fast enough to satisfy impatient digital users. This adaption requires a massive level of digital transformation that can support operations, business processes and decision-making speeds faster than is humanly possible. Historically, digital technologies get faster, cheaper, more powerful and smaller every couple of years. We humans, however, don't. We operate in human time, a biological cadence influenced by the physical environment, our well-documented physical, mental and emotional limitations, and the universe that we live in. As digital interactions proliferate, so also does the volume of real-time data and required analysis. Most people are already at their lim... (more)

Digital Technologies for the Greater Good | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #DigitalTransformation

Adam Smith wrote about rational self-interest, which posits we work together for the greater good when it benefits ourselves. Does this concept translate to robots, automation and employment? I think it does. I believe most of us would agree that replacing large numbers of humans with machines that result in wide scale unemployment and suffering is not in our rational self-interest. Having massive numbers of jobs terminated by the Terminator does not result in a safer, healthier civilization or vibrant economy; therefore, it is not in our best interest. Just because something is ... (more)

Forty Months of Hyper-Digital Transformation | @CloudExpo #IoT #Cloud #DigitalTransformation

Forty months is not a lot of time to design, develop and deliver something monumental. Consider that it took 182 years to build the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, 20 years to build the Great Pyramid of Giza, and 10 years to build the Panama Canal. Executives from digital-leading companies, however, tell us that in just over three years - the year 2020 - 17 different digital technologies will dramatically impact the way they work, and transform the work that gets done, so we don't have much time. This means that within the next 40 months the exponential growth of digitization and... (more)

WebRTC, #IoT and #API Gateways | @ThingsExpo #UCaaS #RTC #WebRTC

Defining Web 3.0 and Developing the Fastest Enterprise Mobility Apps I value a strong opinion.  Especially when the opinionated is an expert and willing to stand up and place a flag in the sand.  In this article, my ambitious friend, programming guru, gamer, colleague, bona fide geek and mobility expert Peter Rogers shares his opinions on the meaning of Web 3.0 and how it will impact mobile application development and the enterprise.  While he is English and prone to use words like whilst, that should not be held against him. I have two ambitions in life: to be the first person t... (more)

Crossing the Line from Virtual to Real | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #AI #Sensors

I was on a high-rise construction site 34-floors above the city.  I was talking to the construction crew when a fight broke out. There was an explosion and the floor collapsed.  I removed the virtual reality (VR) goggles and laughed. It was so real. The VR solutions provided an incredible experience, almost like being there. As good as my experience was, it was not reality.  It was a controlled pre-programmed experience - a notional idea. Today, however, VR and sensor technologies enable a notional idea to become reality - a Real-Reality. IoT sensors extend our physical senses ... (more)
