The demand for exceptionally precise timing is a core component of virtually all infrastructure, from wired and wireless communications to secure defense and banking networks. And when timing sources fall short, there are serious repercussions for network operations. In recent years, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers have emerged as the key source of timing. However, GNSS-based synchronization is fallible and one of the major limitations is that it's only efficient when satellite receivers have a clear sky view. Unsurprisingly, network outages are often traced back to line-of-sight problems with GNSS receivers and antennas.
For many years, Apple has shown the world the processor while important can take a backseat to the software integration when it comes to performance. In iPhone performance tests, Apple consistently outperforms Samsung who relies on the Android OS to interface between the apps and CPU. In the early days of WebRTC – it was maddening to developers that Apple's FaceTime was much better at transmitting quality video than their applications because they were at the mercy of the OS. Chome's speed advantage helped it dethrone the browser king. None of this is lost on Intel.

For the business leader or entrepreneur, every day can seem like a battle. Phone calls, text messages, setting appointments, taking notes of conversations, attending meetings. Even prioritizing your email inbox seems like a daunting task. Wouldn't it be great if you could have a personal assistant who would take care of all that for you? Well, that is the promise of Artificial Intelligence Apps.
Our partner company H2O.ai announced their $72.5M We are blessed to have been part of H2O's journey from Day one, starting in 2012 when we backed the founders with a bold vision of democratizing AI for everyone, at a time when "AI" was yet to be popular in enterprise-technology vernacular. Over the last few years the company has steadily advanced toward realizing that vision, by building on the foundation of customer centric approach, product-first thinking and community focused bottom-up adoption. H20's efforts have played a pivotal role in making enterprise AI real and mainstream. It has been a pleasure to see H2O.ai grow and become the open source leader in AI and automatic machine learning.

Insurers are looking to leverage all of the digital customer data that is now available to them, including one new data source that some of the largest insurance enterprises claim are actively collecting: real-time data streams from the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT devices, such as in-car sensors, smartphones, and smart appliances, can send insurers data on product usage and driving habits among other behaviors. In turn, this data could be fed into AI algorithms that may allow insurers to offer risk-based pricing and other popular services.
Why Partnership Strategy, not Technology, drives Digital Transformation? Known from the 17th century (Blaise Pascal invoked it in his famous wager, which is contained in his Pensées, published in 1670), the idea of expected value is that, when faced with a number of actions, each of which could give rise to more than one possible outcome with different probabilities, the rational procedure is to identify all possible outcomes, determine their values (positive or negative) and the probabilities that will result from each course of action, and multiply the two to give an "expected value", or the average expectation for an outcome; the action to be chosen should be the one that gives rise to the highest total expected value. Decision theory (or the theory of choice) is closely related to the field of game theory and is an interdisciplinary topic, studied by economists, statisticians, psychologists, biologists, political and other social scientists, philosophers, and computer scientists. The need for decision under uncertainty has never been stronger. Although the digital realm is evolving fast, the partnership strategical choice remains a human prerogative and a key driver of the digital ecosystem evolution.
There are more than 1.9 billion users logged in to YouTube every single month who watch over a billion hours of video every day. With this number of users, activity, and content, it makes sense for YouTube to take advantage of the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to help operations. Here are a few ways YouTube, owned by Google, uses artificial intelligence today. In the first quarter of this year, 8.3 million videos were removed from YouTube, and 76% were automatically identified and flagged by artificial intelligence classifiers. More than 70% of these were identified before there were any views by users.
Looking at the way we live today, it's easy to think that relatively recent discoveries and innovations in science and technology are responsible for our modern lifestyle. But even the newest devices and equipment today have their foundations in technology developed centuries ago. The technology used for information exchange, communication, transportation and many other essential aspects of our lives are all a result of a series of inventions and innovations that go back well into the past. Let's take a look at some of the most crucial technological advancements in history. Using glass to refract light is a simple idea, but it took humanity a long time to discover it.
