Companies are moving to the cloud faster than ever. The motivation is higher than ever. One of the companies that first put APIs in the cloud was Netflix and they realized many of the issues that others would face sooner than anyone else. Microservices The key takeaway from Netflix’s experience could be microservices. […]Read More How to Scale APIs in the cloud with Security, Reliability and Quality of Service
The age of Magic The ability to do things is becoming more and more feasible from a purely engineering point of view. Is Elon Musk a magician? Elon is building the first re-usable space transportation system something the US government spent $150 billion trying to do 20 years ago. He seems to be doing it […]Read More Are we living in an age of Magic? Is Elon Musk a magician?
Virtual Reality I categorize virtual reality into these 4 different types. They are progressively more difficult technologies but each will progress independently. VVR, VAR, VFR, VER represent the 4 ways VR technology can be used. VVR is about creating false worlds or artificial computer generated worlds. VAR is about transferring ourselves in […]Read More Virtual Virtual Reality, Virtual Anthropomorphic Reality, Virtual Functional Reality, Virtual Extended Reality
As an enterprise architect we are faced with constructing solutions for our companies that must be implemented quickly but need to scale to almost arbitrary capacity quickly when demand materializes and must stand the test of time because it is almost impossible to rebuild enterprise applications once they are successful and in production. There are […]Read More MicroServices – Martin Fowler, Netflix, Componentized Composable Platforms and SOA (Service Oriented Architecture)
Using the Network Effect to build automation at home between IOT devices The Network effect is the value that is gained by the existence of a growing number of devices in a network. I talk about the network effect in this article. I am proposing to leverage multiple IOT devices in a coordinated way to […]Read More Why would you want to Integrate IOT (Internet of Things) devices? Examples from a use case for the home.
How do current CNN compare to the scale of the human brain? We know that the human brain consists of a 21 billion neurons and somewhere between 1 trillion and 1000 trillion dendrite connections. The closest species is an Elephant which has half as many neurons as a human brain. We can therefore postulate that […]Read More Deep Learning Part 3 – Why CNN and DBN are far way from human intelligence
Does a significant advance like the recent advances in AI presage a massive new potentially dangerous robotic world? Elon Musk Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and others. have stated that recent advances in AI, specifically around CNN (Convoluted Neural Nets) also called Deep Learning has the potential to finally represent real AI. This is exciting and worrisome […]Read More Is Deep Learning AI going to result in human intelligence or better anytime soon – the setup?
Over the last 5 years we have seen a transformation in the way Open Source is viewed in Enterprises that is significant. 1. Open source underwent a massive increase over the last 5 years with the help of organizations such as Google, Twitter, Facebook, Netflix and many others. The number of new projects continues […]Read More Why Open Source has changed from the cheapest software to the best software
This is a continuation of the series on the Disruptive Megatrends for 2015 Series 12. Perceptive APIs / Cognitive Technologies / DeepAI – smart technologies become more and more important to differentiate I strongly believe rapid adoption of Deep Learning technologies and more adoption of various AI sub-disciplines will show dramatic growth in 2015. […]Read More Breakout MegaTrends that will explode in 2015, Continuation Perceptive APIs, Cognitive Technologies, Deep Learning, Convolutional Neural Networks
This year has been a breakout year for a number of key technology trends, part 2 CIO Priorities 9. CIO priorities will shift from cost abatement to “digitization” 2013 and 2014 were for most large organizations an experimental period with the cloud and many new technologies. One of the biggest movements that many CXO’s […]Read More Breakout MegaTrends that will explode in 2015, part 2 CIO Priorities
