During the Covid-19 pandemic, the volume of data generated by online activity has increased by 35%. This isn't surprising, for during the same period of time, the rate of digital transformation – which includes cloud adoption – at the average enterprise, has accelerated by seven years. With more consumers online than ever before, companies are rushing to better integrate and process data, so they can more accurately anticipate changing preferences and patterns of consumption. At the same time, however, companies are also searching for ways to keep this big data – much of it personal and sensitive – safe. Now that millions more people are working from home, data is being transferred through the cloud and across public and private networks in unprecedented volumes.
Shanghai-based artificial intelligence companies and the latest adoptions for smart urban management will be highlights at the Exposition on China Indigenous Brand at the Shanghai Exhibition Center starting Monday. Shanghai Fokan Technology Co, which specializes in graphic encoding and data-mining capability with its own high-resolution camera with resolution of 1 billion pixels, is presenting its products and solutions. By combining the algorithms and hardware for surveillance video cameras, it aims to become the data channel for a wide variety of applications related to artificial intelligence. Based on research projects at Fudan University and the Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics of the Chinese Academy of Science, it's now offering airport smart management solutions at two dozen domestic airports by bringing scattered video surveillance footage in an integrated real-time data platform. Fokan Tech said it managed to build cutting-edge optic sensors and image recognition algorithm into one single smart camera which can detect images of humans, vehicles and aircraft within four square meters.
Advanced analytics techniques, big data infrastructure and powerful algorithms are providing organizations with the ability to utilize their data for significant business value. The challenge, however, is finding the right skill sets and talent to make better use of the data. The growth of data science requires a deeper set of skills and capabilities from data science practitioners.

Azure Synapse Analytics is an unlimited information analysis service aimed at large companies that was presented as the evolution of Azure SQL Data Warehouse (SQL DW), bringing together business data storage and macro or Big Data analysis. Synapse provides a single service for all workloads when processing, managing and serving data for immediate business intelligence and data prediction needs. The latter is made possible by its integration with Power BI and Azure Machine Learning, due to Synapse's ability to integrate mathematical machine learning models using the ONNX format. It provides the freedom to handle and query huge amounts of information either on demand serverless (a type of deployment that automatically scales power on demand when large amounts of data are available) for data exploration and ad hoc analysis, or with provisioned resources, at scale. As one of the few Microsoft's Power BI partners in Spain, at Bismart we have a large experience working with both Power BI and Azure Synapse.
COVID-19 has impacted the world in unprecedented ways, fast-tracking the use of digital tools and innovation to adapt. In a previous blog, we outlined six key technology trends driving social and behavioural changes in West Africa as a result of COVID-19. As we look towards life after the pandemic, we revisit some of these trends and detail key frontier technologies gaining traction in developing economies. The pandemic has driven the uptake of big data public-private partnerships for crisis response. Layering multiple types of data points (including mobile phone data, satellite imagery, ground weather measurements and open street maps) can be extremely effective when combined.
