In the past year or two, many companies have shared their data discovery platforms (the latest being Facebook's Nemo). Based on this list, we now know of more than 10 implementations. I haven't been paying much attention to these developments in data discovery and wanted to catch up. By the end of this, we'll learn about the key features that solve 80% of data discoverability problems. We'll also see how the platforms compare on these features, and take a closer look at open source solutions available.
Paul Lipman has worked in cybersecurity for 10-plus years. The onset of Covid-19 necessitated a work-from-home environment on an unprecedented scale. Large and small companies raced to reframe and reevaluate cybersecurity measures within a massive BYOD environment and amid increased Covid-19-related phishing scams and cyberattacks like the recent ransomware attacks against the Clark County School District (CCSD) in Las Vegas and United Health Services. Regulations like GDPR and CCPA helped make the collection of consumer data and privacy a matter of law instead of just good practice. However, consumers remain skeptical of businesses that continue to put profit ahead of privacy after breaches, like Facebook, TikTok and YouTube.
Marketing is evolving day by day. The need to upgrade your marketing is more now than ever. AI is now ruling every industry out there and marketing is no exception to it. Though it's a new trend and most of the organizations and marketers are not aware of this trend completely, a fair number of organizations have started implementing it already. So I thought to give an overview of AI powered Marketing.
Picture this: you're sitting in a bar and a creepy stranger keeps trying to talk to you. The next day you get a text from that stranger. Not only do they know your phone number, they know where you live; in fact, they know everything about you. They were wearing Facebook smart glasses, you see. The moment they looked in your direction the glasses identified you via facial recognition technology.
To really understand huge information, it is helpful to get some historic background. Here is Gartner's definition, circa 2001 (that is still the go-to expression): Big information is information which contains better variety arriving in increasing quantities and using ever-higher velocity. This is known as the three Vs. To put it differently, large info is bigger, more complicated data sets, especially from new information sources. These data sets are so voluminous that traditional data processing software simply can't manage them.
Worried about your firm's AI ethics? These startups are here to help. They offer a range of products and services from bias-mitigation tools to explainability platforms. Initially most of their clients came from heavily regulated industries like finance and health care. But increased research and media attention on issues of bias, privacy, and transparency have shifted the focus of the conversation.
Humans are inherently visual beings. From time immemorial, we rely on visual cues for the basic adaptive behaviors, as well as complex behaviors. Most of us process information based on what we see rather than what we hear or read. And this age-old trend of visual learning has evolved into visual search, as the world became more and more digital and Internet-oriented. In comparison to the speed with which we understand and process pictures, we are terrible listeners and even slower readers. And this happens mostly because of science, as the neurons involved in processing visuals constitute almost 30% of the human brain.

With tech giants pouring billions of dollars into artificial intelligence projects, it's hard to see how startups can find their place and create successful business models that leverage AI. However, while fiercely competitive, the AI space is also constantly causing fundamental shifts in many sectors. And this creates the perfect environment for fast-thinking and -moving startups to carve a niche for themselves before the big players move in.
