Analytic Systems are No Good Unless They Are CRAP - Bryan Beverly @allanalytics

#artificialintelligence

First, analytic systems should be Creative. Not in the sense that the functional requirements were not met, but rather innovative in development approach. By either using new tools or old tools in new ways, creativity keeps work interesting and advances the analytics discipline. As long as the customer's welfare is not put at risk in terms of cost, schedule or scope, then thinking outside of the box benefits managers, analysts, and end users. The goal is to push products to their limitations and then seek ways of integrating with other products. For example, here is a SUGI paper from 2005, where I integrated SAS with earned value techniques and email services.


How adaptive computing solves AI productization challenges

#artificialintelligence

While the software industry has been successful in deploying AI in production, the hardware industry – including automotive, industrial, and smart retail – is still in its infancy in terms of AI productization. Major gaps still exist that hinder AI algorithm proofs-of-concept (PoC) from becoming real hardware deployments. These drawbacks are largely due to small data problems, "non-perfect" inputs, and ever-changing "state-of-the-art" models. How can software developers and AI scientists overcome these challenges? The answer lies in adaptable hardware.

Hybrid drone takes off like helicopter and fly like plane

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Futuristic hybrid drones with both a helicopter and airplane mode are set to revolutionise warfare, experts claim. Engineers have unveiled an ambitious new concept for adaptable unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) which are so agile they can take off and land like a helicopter and still fly like plane. Experts believe the drones of the future, which will alternate between fixed-wing flight and rotary-wing flight, could be deployed by soldiers in the next few decades. The new technology concept – named Adaptable UAVs – can alternate between the two different flight modes in the same mission. When in rotary wing mode the UAVs can be launched and recovered from battlefields and can also hover and achieve vertical take-off and landing.


The major shifts from industrial to digital performance management

Homeoffice as a use case for the digitization of your performance management Corona has advanced digitalization. Home office is now an indispensable part of many companies for a post-Corona era. Hybrid models can combine the wishes of companies for at least consistent productivity and workers for an improved work-life balance. If you look at the recently published studies (I refer to studies in Germany), the experience with Homeoffice is mixed. According to the Ifo Institute, managers and HR professionals surveyed [1]say that even in more companies, productivity is reduced than improved by home office; if one asks – like the DAK – [2]employees, 3 out of 4 employees see an improvement in their productivity.
