It's Time for Data Governance 2.0 with erwin DG - DATAVERSITY

@machinelearnbot

That strategy, dubbed Data Governance 2.0, puts the focus on making Data Governance everyone's business, in order to fully leverage data for strategic advantage and remove as much risk out of the systems and processes associated with that data. Pivoting Data Governance from an IT-centric "custodian-oriented" service, to one where every member of the business is invested in and accountable for data use, is part of erwin's overall vision. It has become a more prevalent way of thinking among its customers, too. A few dozen are currently participating in its beta program. This provides a meaningful interface to various enterprise functions spanning business and IT.


Personalized Customer Experience Increases Revenue And Loyalty

#artificialintelligence

Personalized experiences are a hot topic these days. Certain types of businesses have become very skilled at delivering personalized service. Think about a hotel you've stayed at before that welcomes you back and remembers that you liked a certain type of pillow, a specific newspaper and a corner room. The experience is becoming more and more common, and this type of service is crossing over into many other industries, especially retail. When a customer walks into a retail store, the salesperson has two choices: simply ring up a purchase, or truly help the customer get what he or she really needs.


3 Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Making eCommerce Even Smarter

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) keeps revving up, infiltrating an expansive range of regions, revealing new incentives for finance, healthcare, and games and so much more. That is the reason it makes sense that 42% of retail and eCommerce players pilot, apply, or extend their Artificial Intelligence programs. Chatbots are consistently changing the scene of eCommerce. Gartner estimates that 85% of customer interactions will happen without human intercession by 2020, and at the end of 2018, Artificial Intelligence bots will distinguish customers by voice and face. For sure, virtual purchasing assistants have officially ended up being a boon, and eCommerce has rushed to respond to the call of fitting the Artificial Intelligence condition.


3 AI Trends for Enterprise Computing

#artificialintelligence

For workers at a logistics company in the EU who have to transact and work across borders on a daily basis, AI is not some black box technology; it is already ushering in material improvements in their productivity and efficiency. A pan-EU logistics company piloted a natural language processing interface that allowed a driver, who speaks Slovenian, to interact with a forklift operator, who speaks German, to communicate through automated translations and quickly unload the freight. As a result they were able to better meet the company's business outcomes of fast, efficient transport. Companies will gain capabilities they otherwise couldn't achieve by applying AI to narrow and specific business problems. "AI projects grant organizations the superpowers to classify and predict in ways mere mortals cannot achieve alone," said Whit Andrews, vice president and distinguished analyst, during the Gartner Symposium/ ITxpo 2017 in Orlando, Florida.


What are mobile AI chips really good for?

#artificialintelligence

What are they actually good for? In the recent months we've heard a lot about specialized silicon being used for machine learning in mobile devices. Apple's new iPhones have their "neural engine"; Huawei's Mate 10 comes with a "neural processing unit"; and companies that manufacture and design chips (like Qualcomm and ARM) are gearing up to supply AI-optimized hardware to the rest of the industry. What's not clear, is how much all this benefits the consumer. When you're buying your phone, should an "AI chip" be on your wish list?

But I encountered a significant difference using Google Home devices to control my Vivint Smart Home system compared to Amazon's Echo. When I say "OK Google, turn on my kitchen lights," the Google Assistant responds "OK, here's Vivint." He said if Vivint were to choose the other method, which would allow the Google Assistant to control the home more directly, Vivint would need to allow Google to access the state of the home on a full-time basis. I was told it explains how Google's smart home API works for third parties that integrate directly.


AUSA 2017: This military ATV can 'think' and drive itself

FOX News

While top brass walked the floors of AUSA exploring innovation for future combat in Washington D.C., in Georgia at Fort Benning, robot selection to join the troops is in an intense final week. The jungle drums at AUSA have it that the selected robots may be integrating and working alongside soldiers in brigade combat teams (BCTs) as soon as early next year. In fact, U.S. special operations forces and the wider military regularly rely on the advanced capabilities MRZR 2 and MRZR 4 for their work downrange. The company teamed up with robot experts Applied Research Associates and Neya Systems to turn their wildly popular MRZR into the MRZR X – a smart MRZR that integrates advanced robotics so it can drive without a human at the wheel.


Qualities of a Well-Built ETL Tool

@machinelearnbot

Ideally, you'll be able to find one that meets all of these qualifications Good ETL tools can integrate into a wide variety of APIs, allowing it to pull or push through them. A tool that effectively integrates with a wide range of external tools will meet your needs better than a tool that doesn't. There are three primary elements to how well any computerized tool functions: speed, accuracy, and stability. The big advantage to commercial ETL tools is the amount of effort that's already been put into them, meaning that a lot of that work should already be done for you.
