Seven Game Changing Digital Technologies for Enterprise Transformation

#artificialintelligence

The crumbling of the barriers to entry for machine intelligence – driven by the availability of high-quality open-source software components; cloud platforms from all major providers; and the availability of wildly popular and high-quality introductory courses on MOOC platforms – will drive growing mainstream adoption of machine intelligence as a differentiating and foundational technology layer in the digital transformation stack for identifying and closing new revenue opportunities, customizing user experience, driving operational efficiencies, and predicting failures. Data breaches, ransomware, and large-scale Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks will continue to dominate enterprise security. As this tooling matures, we expect to see an increasing trend of enterprise adoption of data lakes as their end-to-end BI and data warehouse solution. Platforms that integrate with multiple third-party IoT platforms and provide device management services across all of them will gain foothold with customers.

Denny Solomona: The legal case that could impact rugby as Bosman did football

BBC News

Despite having two years remaining on his contract with Super League club Castleford Tigers, Solomona retired from rugby league and subsequently joined Premiership rugby union side Sale Sharks on a three-year deal. Tigers are now seeking damages against the player for breach of contract and for damages, including exemplary damages, against Sale Sharks and agent Clarke for "inducing" Solomona to breach his contract. And, for a long time, it was the professional rugby league welcoming players from rugby union, a sport that remained amateur until 1995. Collins also feels Solomona's actions, citing his retirement from rugby league, has set a dangerous precedent.


Artificial intelligence tool can unearth bargain rugby players

#artificialintelligence

A British artificial intelligence firm is looking to revolutionise the world of sports transfers by designing software that picks out bargain rugby players. While rugby scouting typically requires looking through hours of footage to assess a player's ability, the software allows a club to enter the name of a star player and will assess match statistics to find players with similar styles. It looks through around 100 different parameters taken from Opta, the sports data company, which covers every professional player on the planet, to find players similar to the star that a club would buy if money were no object. The machine learning software clusters different types of players together, making it easier for scouts and analysts to find players and removing the biases that many believe cloud judgements when signing players.
