IOT : Should you do your Automation for your disparate IOT devices locally or in the cloud, review HUBS

  Here is my blog series on this IoT project to automate some key home functions using a variety of IOT devices from many manufacturers. Here is my “Buy/no buy/might buy list and IOT landscape article here” Here is my “What are the integration points for IoT article here” Here is my “Why would you […]

MicroServices – Martin Fowler, Netflix, Componentized Composable Platforms and SOA (Service Oriented Architecture)

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 […]

Why would you want to Integrate IOT (Internet of Things) devices? Examples from a use case for the home.

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 […]

Is Deep Learning going to result in human intelligence or better anytime soon? – part 2, CNN and DBN explained

2010 Convolutional Neural Nets Convolutional Neural Nets operate on raw data from senses using some basic numerical techniques which aren’t that hard to understand.  It is possible these same techniques are employed in our brain.  Therefore the concern is that if these CNN have a similar ability to abstract things as a human brain does […]

Is Deep Learning AI going to result in human intelligence or better anytime soon – the setup?

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 […]
