Meet the Internet of Things

by pm2net on March 31, 2015 , Comments Off on Meet the Internet of Things

In today’s world there is a lot of hype surrounding the Internet of Things. Perhaps that’s because IoT has, and is demonstrating, the potential to disrupt nearly every system and business process we rely on. A full 37 years before IoT was coined, a visionary cartoon provided examples that we can look to as we accelerate the adoption of IoT.

Fight "Blacklist" criminals using real-time actionable intelligence

by pm2net on March 26, 2015 , Comments Off on Fight "Blacklist" criminals using real-time actionable intelligence

Describing intelligence software has gotten a whole lot easier as Hollywood continues to produce gripping spy shows like The Blacklist, Homeland and CSI. But while the layman description may have gotten easier, the real threatscape continues to evolve as criminal and terrorist networks continue to grow. A community of intelligence analysts work 24/7 to identify actionable intelligence buried in mountains of disparate data sets with the shared mission to disrupt and prevent these threats.

Delving deeply into the narrative hierarchies of computer vision analytics

by pm2net on March 26, 2015 , Comments Off on Delving deeply into the narrative hierarchies of computer vision analytics

Deep learning algorithms are growing progressively smarter at recognizing patterns in video, audio, speech, image, sensor and other non-textual data objects. Correlation of deep learning model results with other sources of contextual information can show how the information supplied by media and sensor streams aligns with verbal information. As deep learning researchers are able to identify more situational variables purely from media and sensor streams, they are exploring new approaches for stringing those situations together—past, present and likely future—into the larger context of narratives.

The evolving shape of distributed databases in the Internet of Things

by pm2net on March 19, 2015 , Comments Off on The evolving shape of distributed databases in the Internet of Things

Databases are evolving into a new stream-centric architecture that is well-suited to real-time distributed analytic computing in the Internet of Things. This new paradigm will leverage distributed event logs, temporal database concepts and materialized views as core architectural concepts. As it gains traction, this new approach could pave the way for a world where databases (in the traditional sense) occupy a less pivotal role in the end-to-end architecture. Users should rest assured that their investments in relational, columnar and other established database technologies won’t become obsolete. These, plus Hadoop, NoSQL, in-memory and other newer data-platform architectures, will play together very nicely within hybrid virtualized environments.

A new way of thinking at InterConnect 2015

by pm2net on March 17, 2015 , Comments Off on A new way of thinking at InterConnect 2015

I was invited to attend IBM Interconnect 2015, which made its debut this year. Understanding this is a combination of three smaller conferences (Pulse, Innovate and Impact) I was left to wonder what the main focus of the week would be, and how it would all fit together. The conference organizers had a myriad of subjects to tackle from the three previous conferences, all while faced with the task of providing value to the more than 21,000 attendees. Oh, and what do they mean by “InterConnect” anyway?
