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 Mheirs 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.

Voyage Commander is a state-of-the-art self-driving robot taxi that has a number of important limitations and sheds light into what is possible and what is not | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

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 Mheirs 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).

It should be clear by now that there is no #privacy without proper (#cyber)#security measures - case in point: Sealed U.S. Court Records Exposed in SolarWinds Breach via @BrianKrebs KrebsOnSecurity... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The ongoing breach affecting thousands of organizations that relied on backdoored products by network software firm SolarWinds may have jeopardized the privacy of countless sealed court documents on file with the U.S. federal court system, according to a memo released Wednesday by the Administrative Office (AO) of the U.S. Courts.

WHY IT MATTERS: all projects I work on is very concerned about privacy, especially when it comes to email communications. But if the computer systems that store the info are not secured, what's the point? Why do we even bother to accept cookies left and right when the info gets collected and stored in systems that can be breached.

An Absurdly Basic Bug Let Anyone Grab All of Parler's Data via @WIRED HT @NunoBarbeita @umlaut21 | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Parler lacked the most basic security measures that would have prevented the automated scraping of the site's data. It even ordered its posts by number in the site's URLs, so that anyone could have easily, programmatically downloaded the site's millions of posts. Parler's cardinal security sin is known as an insecure direct object reference,

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: security has become central in our age of digital transformation. Yet, it seems, most people are either unaware of basic security principles, or not willing to invest time or money to do it. And I am not even talking of doing it *well*. Just implementing proper security measure. In this case it affect Parler, which in itself I don't much care about (they deserve it for such a stupid mistake). But their lack of security impacts their users privacy as well. And that includes potentially millions of people (in the photo, 68000 video have been geolocated - too bad for keeping your anonymity ;-)

Wikipedia’s future lies in poorer countries- what have the last 20 years of wikipedia's life shown

Wikipedia’s future lies in poorer countries- what have the last 20 years of wikipedia's life shown | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Meanwhile, as more people in poorer countries gain internet access, Wikipedia is becoming a truly global resource. The encyclopedia’s sub-sites are organised by language, not by nationality. Using this method, the richest Wikipedias—as measured by the share of speakers of each language who are active editors—tend to cluster in rich Western countries.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: after 20 years, wikipedia is proof that "the web" can live up to its potential where the masses can contribute valuable information for the greater good. That being said, wikipedia remains a solution driven by english-speaking white males. The future lies in improving its diversity and maybe transferring some of its learnings to facebook, twitter and other social media. This article summarizes the growth and evolution after 20 years existence.

Marketing Technology Landscape reviews 8000 different technologies - no wonder everyone is #lost and #confused #Martech

Marketing Technology Landscape reviews 8000 different technologies - no wonder everyone is #lost and #confused #Martech | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Welcome to the 2020 edition of the marketing technology landscape. Yes, it grew once again, by 13.6%, up to a total of 8,000 martech solutions. That's after 615 from the 2019 landscape went away, either consolidated with another martech company or simply gone defunct. If you were predicting consolidation, an 8.7% churn rate from one year to the next is pretty significant attrition to support that narrative.

The next normal arrives: Trends that will define 2021—and beyond via @McKinsey

The next normal arrives: Trends that will define 2021—and beyond via @McKinsey | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

In March 2020, some of our McKinsey colleagues argued that the COVID-19 crisis could be the “imperative of our time.” A month later, we noted that it could bring a “dramatic restructuring of the economic and social order.” We stand by those assertions. The COVID-19 pandemic has been an economic and human catastrophe, and it’s far from over. But with vaccines beginning to roll out, it’s possible to be cautiously optimistic that the next normal will emerge this year or next.
And we believe that, in some ways, that normal could be better. With good leadership, from both business and governments, the changes we described—in productivity, green growth, medical innovation, and resiliency—could provide an enduring foundation for the long term.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: an optimistic viewpoint of the future, very much worth reading as it covers all aspects of the recovery and many elements of digital transformation - remote work, eCommerce, etc.
