Apple HomePod: Late, and pricey, but this smart speaker could still have one advantage over its rivals


Four ways to explore the use of voice technology for your business. Apple's HomePod smart speaker could be on sale in the next few weeks, with reports that the first shipments have finally left the factories. HomePod was supposed to be on sale in December for that all-important holiday shopping season, but Apple delayed it at the last minute saying it needed " a little more time before it's ready". But it's likely to arrive soon -- in the US, UK, and Australia, at least. That means the HomePod will finally go on sale more than three years after Amazon launched the Echo smart speaker, which kickstarted the market and still dominates it, and more than a year behind Google Home.

Bluemix: Using dashDB and Insights for Twitter services to collect and store Twitter data


As part of my Technology and Innovation MBA program at Ted Rogers School of Management, I took a data and knowledge management course which teaches students the principles and practices of knowledge management. The second part of the course delves on tools used in data management and analytics. Although the theoretical part of the course was a bit dry, the hands-on portion was very interesting and exposed students to several different tools to capture, clean and analyze data. One of the tasks given to students was to capture and analyze twitter data. Although students had access to Netlytics, which is a neat cloud-based text and social network analysis tool that also collects Twitter data, students were encouraged to find other ways to collect Twitter data.

The NSA was light years ahead of Siri and Alexa with voice recognition technology: Report


For technology users who have marveled at the ability of Siri or Alexa to recognize their voice, consider this: The National Security Agency has apparently been way ahead of Apple or Amazon. The agency has at its disposal voice recognition technology that it employs to identify terrorists, government spies, or anyone they choose -- with just a phone call, according to a report by The Intercept. The disclosure was revealed in a recently published article, part of a trove of documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The publication wrote that by using recorded audio, the NSA is able to create a "voiceprint," or a map of qualities that mark a voice as singular, and identify the person speaking. The documents also suggest the agency is continuously improving its speech recognition capabilities, the publication noted.

How AI will impact your IT career


Artificial intelligence and machine learning are eating up workloads at IT help desks, in cybersecurity, and other IT tasks, stirring significant concern over the long-term impact AI will have on jobs -- even in the IT industry. And the concern isn't unfounded. According to a recent report from Tata Consulting Services, in 12 out of the 13 major industry verticals, IT is the most frequent user of AI, with more than 46 percent of IT organizations at large corporations incorporating AI into their work portfolios. But that doesn't mean IT jobs are about to go the way of telephone switchboard operators. Instead, the day-to-day activities of enterprise technology professionals will evolve alongside AI and new skills may be required.
