Net Neutrality rules were originally enacted to ensure that all Americans would have equal access to a free and open Internet. We can argue about what Net Neutrality rules did and did not accomplish in a moment, but now I want to explore the most sensational of all the post–Net Neutrality fears: the death of the Internet. If you’re still reading, you know that the FCC voted to repeal Net Neutrality rules (aka the Open Internet) and replace it with the “Restoring Internet Freedom” order. The outcry from the Open Internet camp has been loud, hyperbolic, hypothetical, and mostly based on the fundamental principles of “what if.” For some background and my personal “what if?” musings, read this. “If Net Neutrality Is Repealed, the Internet Will Die!” I’m paraphrasing, of course, but this is what many proponents of Net Neutrality believe. My issue with this line of thinki... (more)

Developing Mobile Apps for iOS and Android | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Mobility

Developing mobile apps has never been an easy task. Creating a mobile app for iOS means owning strong programming skills about Objective-C or Swift and knowing their APIs. Android-based apps are not so different: you have to know Java and the Android Platform and its API. The learning curve is not fast and it includes how to create nice and interactive user interfaces, connecting embedded features like GPS, camera, showing maps, images and so forth. To make it more complex, it is pretty common to connect the app with a server where central data is saved or fetched and where other services must be connected, like a central database, documents repository or other information systems. Consequently, creating a mobile app requires a team of experts able to work with a variety of different technologies, including mobile app development, networking, server-side technolo... (more)

Stop Doing Meta-Work Now | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Storage #DataCenter

While walking around the office I happened upon a relatively new employee dragging emails from his inbox into folders. I asked why and was told, “I’m just answering emails and getting stuff off my desk.” An empty inbox may be emotionally satisfying to look at, but in practice, you should never do it. Here’s why. I recently wrote a piece arguing that from a mathematical perspective, Messy Desks Are Perfectly Optimized. While it validated the genius of my friends with messy desks, it also generated a barrage of good-natured ribbing from my super-neat friends. Emotions aside, the math is the math! By putting the last paper you looked at on top of the pile, you are organizing your desk using an algorithm called LRU (Least Recently Used). It is based on the idea that the papers you most recently used are the ones you are most likely to use again. Conversely, the papers ... (more)

Cheers to a New Year!

For those of us old enough to remember Y2K, it’s hard to believe we are already in 2018. Just a scant 19 years ago we worried that the world would end when computers were asked to switch centuries on their internal clocks from 19## to 20##. ‘Future proofing’ was not a concept embraced by computer scientists in the 1970’s and 80’s. But we made it through and so much has happened in the world of technology since. Can you recall a time before the iPhone, mobile apps, social media, Google and Amazon? As these tools became more and more popular, we as consumers changed behavior and the nature of ‘real-time’ became a very tangible pain for technologists challenged to keep up with demand. But out of pain comes innovation. Virtualization, the cloud, Big Data, Hadoop, IoT, hyper-converged infrastructures all rose to address the needs of the enterprise. But what lagged behin... (more)

Put AI to Work for Your Brand Right Now | @CloudExpo #AI #ML #Cloud

Earlier this week, Google’s DeepMind team published a paper describing AlphaZero, a new generic reinforcement learning algorithm that has done some remarkable things. First, in about eight hours, it taught itself to beat AlphaGo, a human-trained AI system that beat the best human Go players in the world. It also taught itself chess and Shogi (known as Japanese chess) in about four hours and beat the best human-trained AI systems at those games. How did AlphaZero teach itself? The rules of the games were programmed into the system. Then, AlphaZero started to play itself. The more it played itself, the better it became. Over a few hours, it learned to play the games better than the games had ever been played. Perfect Information It is extremely important to understand that AlphaZero is not thinking like humans think, and it is not capable of general-knowledge decision-m... (more)

What the Microsoft buyout of Nokia means to the consumer

By Ryan Kamauff Recently, Microsoft announced that they will be buying Nokia’s mobile division. In my mind, this was the inevitable conclusion of Nokia’s announcement that they would only manufacture Windows Mobile devices. Microsoft has struggled greatly with their Surface RT device, and Microsoft has had to cut the price (and toss in the $130 keyboard cover) to move any product. Microsoft has been similarly struggling with smartphone sales, and they believe the two are combined. As more users look to lightweight mobile solutions instead of laptops and PCs, Microsoft does not have a compelling alternative. We’ve talked extensively about ecosystems here at CTOvision, and I lauded Google for their ecosystem improvements in the Nexus 7 and Android 4.3. Microsoft clearly has control of the desktop ecosystem, but many analysts believe that era of the PC is over, and t... (more)
