Tech trends from @Bain&Company posits that #Technology Is Reshaping the Global Economy

Tech trends from @Bain&Company posits that #Technology Is Reshaping the Global Economy | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Technology has emerged as the primary disruptor and value creator across all sectors.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this tech trends is different than other "lists" in that it analyses a number of topics and provides useful data trends to understand the issues. Well done and very useful. I highlight the change in buying behaviour in the chart I extracted (buyers know what they want more than in the past but sellers have yet to adapt to this new normal) - but I guarantee the report has a bunch more.

Announcing the Architecture for Extreme-Scale #AI

Announcing the Architecture for Extreme-Scale #AI | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Cerebras unveiled the world’s first multi-million core AI cluster architecture! Our unique technology handles neural networks with up to an astonishing 120 trillion parameters. That’s approximately the number of synapses in the human brain! Today, to run models at only a fraction of that size, clusters of graphics processors consume acres of space, megawatts of power, and require dedicated teams to operate. We can fix that.

To unlock the potential of extreme-scale models, we realized a new approach is needed. One that addresses the challenge of scaling massive memory, compute, and communication all at once. Such a solution must be able to support the largest models of today, and scale to empower the models of tomorrow.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: I continue to be amazed by the silicon improvements that AI requires. More here: http://blog.fmcs.digital/?q=cerebras

Visual search is holy grail for eCommerce: show a picture of a product and get recommendations - Facebook has been testing #grokNet with mitigated results #AI | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Our latest AI advancements represent fundamental building blocks that could power entirely new future shopping experiences.

  • Facebook AI is on a quest to build the world’s largest shoppable social media platform, where billions of items can be bought and sold in one place.

  • As a key milestone toward this goal, we’re sharing details on how we’ve improved and expanded GrokNet, our breakthrough product recognition system. Now, it’s powering new applications on Facebook, like product tagging and showing visually similar products. Soon, we’ll bring visual search to Instagram so that people find similar products just by tapping on an image.

  • We’re also diving into our latest advancements, which provide a deeper, more nuanced understanding of product attributes and multimodal signals. These advancements collectively represent fundamental building blocks that could power entirely new shopping innovations of the future.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: as marketplaces become popular, finding a specific product in a catalog of millions of products will become harder and harder. The holy grail is visual search: snap a picture of something and get some AI to help you find something similar, or that matches well with that. eBay has made tests, Google lens has returned amazing results in my recent experience. Not sure what Amazon is doing but I assume it is top of their list.

Facebook is a major player in this game as it wants to make marketplace the shopping destination (don't forget it owns instagram as well). So the investment in grokNet is critical and recent results appear promising, though not yet perfect. 

So if you build a marketplace, as we are for panier bleu, then this is an area of innovation we cannot afford to bypass.

How tech will revolutionize #retail via @McKinsey is a realistic viewpoint on the "late follower" mentality of most retailers with a constant focus of the bottom line #realityCheck | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The retailer of the future will harness the power of data, quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality, says serial entrepreneur and technology expert John Straw.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: warning! this article is not about your typical "robots will rule retail" or "everything has to be AI driven unless you die". Well, in some parts it is.

The reality check that retailers - and their technology vendors - must make is: retail is difficult, focused on the bottom line, with no appetite for innovation with short term results. Retail innovators must find a way to experiment while staying focussed on the bottom line.

Best quote: "‘I think the majority of the problems come from the unwillingness, perhaps the fear, of investing in something that
doesn’t automatically bring a load of cash onto your balance sheet."

The Rise of the CTO - 2021 IBM CEO study highlights the importance of #technology for CEOs - trend or #tunnelVision from @IBM? Thanks to @SeanMoffitt @FutureproofingN | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

We surveyed more than 3,000 CEOs around the world to learn how they are positioning their organizations for success after COVID-19. Five key factors set outperforming CEOs apart.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: technology is high on CEO radar of priorities as digital transformations shifts from front-office (web, social, search, all areas of the marketing CMO) to the back office (manufacturing, security, IOT, cloud, AI). CIOs play a role but many times they can't cut it so the CTO comes in. Could be a fundamental trend, or simply tunnel vision (it is an IBM survey after all ;-). Thanks to Sean Moffitt - Future Proofing Next guru! Many more insights in the full report.

#digital is 50 years old: so what is next in #eCommerce and other areas? 134 fact-based data-full slides from @benedictevans provide insights into what the future may hold #mustRead | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Covid brought shock and a lot of broken habits to tech, but mostly, it accelerates everything that was already changing. 20 trillion dollars of retail, brands, TV and advertising is being overturned, and software is remaking everything from cars to pharma. Meanwhile, China has more smartphone users than Europe and the USA combined, and India is close behind - technology and innovation will be much more widely spread. For that and lots of other reason, tech is becoming a regulated industry, but if we step over the slogans, what does that actually mean? Tech is entering its second 50 years.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a great new overview of the digital transformation (my words), with fact-based data-full slides. I especially like everything about eCommerce in there which will become reference for me in coming months. I extracted just one striking illustration of the wide variation of eCommerce penetration depending on industry. This chart highlights how different the digital transformation strategies must be in the toys&games industry vs the grocery industry. Love it. Many more in the full presentation.

System Creates the Illusion of an Ideal AI Chip and offers an alternative to @Cerebras wafer-scale integration - more #AI good news via @IEEESpectrum

System Creates the Illusion of an Ideal AI Chip and offers an alternative to @Cerebras wafer-scale integration - more #AI good news via @IEEESpectrum | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Called Illusion, it uses processors built with resistive RAM memory in a 3D stack built above the silicon logic, so it costs little energy or time to fetch data. By itself, even this isn’t enough, because neural networks are increasingly too large to fit in one chip. So the scheme also requires multiple such hybrid processors and an algorithm that both intelligently slices up the network among the processors and also knows when to rapidly turn processors off when they’re idle.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: not sure how practical this system is but sure seems easier to manufacture than Cerebras wafer-scale solution. No matter what architecture wins, we can see that there will be computer designs that will maximize neural net with billions of nodes (GPT3 has 175B) training.

When Commander detects that something in the road ahead cannot be handled by itself, it gracefully transitions control to Telessist, our novel remote assistance technology. Telessist enables our robotaxi service to scale quicker, safely driving riders through any scenario that the world can throw at us.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a very interesting article about a robot taxi system, how it works and its limitations. Fun read to understand what is possible and what is not in self driving tech today. This is important because many of digital transformation use case depend on this for profitability (for example eCommerce delivery cost should reduce drastically when this available).
