Top 12 Data Science Skills to Learn in 2020

#artificialintelligence

"We're entering a new world in which data may be more important than software." If you want to stay competitive in this rapidly evolving domain, you need to regularly update your skills with the latest changes. In the following section, we will share the top Data Science skills that not only a practicing Data Scientist would benefit from, but also anyone who's passionate about working his way around large volumes of data. If you code anything at all, we're sure you must've heard about GitHub. GitHub is among the most commonly used tools by the developers today after Stack Overflow.

Microsoft's Project HSD is all about holographic storage for the cloud

Engadget

Microsoft is looking beyond flash storage and hard drives to handle the seemingly unstoppable demand for cloud storage. Yesterday at its Ignite conference, the company announced Project HSD (via ZDNet), a new research initiative that's exploring how holographic storage could eventually be used for the cloud. And while it may sound far-fetched, the notion of holographic storage has been around since the 1960's. But now, Microsoft thinks it may be possible to use the medium effectively thanks to the rise of smartphone cameras. As the video above explains, holographic storage works by writing and reading data from an optical crystal.


Top 10 Digital Transformation Trends For 2021

#artificialintelligence

No one could have predicted where 2020 would take us: The last six months alone have produced more digital transformation than the last decade, with every transformation effort already underway finding itself accelerated, and at scale. While many of my digital transformation predictions from a year ago benefited from this shift, others were displaced by more urgent needs, like 24/7 secure and reliable connectivity. What does this mean for 2021? Will core technologies like AI and data analytics still dominate headlines, or will we see newer, previously emerging technologies take the lead? Only time will tell, but here are my top ten digital transformation predictions for 2021.


IBM's Dinesh Nirmal: 'Every company is trying to automate their enterprise'

ZDNet

The cloud computing race in 2020 will have a definite multi-cloud spin. Here's a look at how the cloud leaders stack up, the hybrid market, and the SaaS players that run your company as well as their latest strategic moves. IBM hybrid cloud efforts revolve around a hefty dose of automation, an API ecosystem and using artificial intelligence to bridge clouds and applications. Dinesh Nirmal, general manager of IBM Cloud Integration, outlined the strategy and multicloud landscape in a conversation with ZDNet. Here are some of the highlights from our chat with Nirmal.

LG Uplus joins Google Cloud for 5G mobile edge computing tech - Express Computer

#artificialintelligence

LG Uplus Corp, a major South Korean mobile carrier, said on Sunday that it is joining forces with Google to jointly develop 5G mobile edge computing (MEC) technology. Under the partnership, LG Uplus will work with Google Cloud, which will provide its artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, to develop new services that utilize MEC on the telecom operator's 5G network. MEC is a key technology in delivering ultra-low latency data communication in 5G networks, and it is expected to boost upcoming services, such as smart factories, autonomous cars and cloud gaming. LG Uplus demonstrated the technology last October by transferring a vehicle's live-video feed to a car at its rear as part of its self-driving vehicle project. The new partnership comes as South Korean telecom operators have rushed to develop the budding 5G technology, reports Yonhap news agency.


Trump agrees to deal in which TikTok will partner with Oracle and Walmart

#artificialintelligence

President Donald Trump said Saturday he has approved a deal in principle in which Oracle and Walmart will partner with the viral video-sharing app TikTok in the U.S., allowing the popular app to avoid a shutdown. "I have given the deal my blessing -- if they get it done that's great, if they don't that's okay too," Trump told reporters on the White House South Lawn before departing for North Carolina. "I approved the deal in concept." The U.S. Department of Commerce announced it would delay the prohibition of U.S. transactions with TikTok until next Sunday. Shortly after Trump's comments, Oracle announced it was chosen as TikTok's secure cloud provider and will become a minority investor with a 12.5% stake.


Google Cloud secures U.S. military AI cancer research contract

#artificialintelligence

Google Cloud announced today that it landed a contract to supply Veterans Affairs hospitals and Defense Health Agency treatment facilities with AI for predictive cancer and disease diagnosis. The contract comes from the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU), a Pentagon organization that brings consumer technology into the military. "The initial rollout will take place at select Defense Health Agency treatment facilities and Veteran's Affairs hospitals in the United States, with future plans to expand across the broader U.S. Military Health System," a Google Cloud post reads. "The AI-based models used to assist doctors as part of the prototype were developed from public and private datasets that were de-identified to remove personal health information and any personally identifiable information. All patient diagnostic data will solely be managed by the individual hospital or provider."
