AI and robotics are going to create almost 60 million more jobs globally, that’s according to a new report from the World Economic Forum. The Swiss think tank released its Future of Jobs report to put facts behind the much-debated topic of AI and job displacement.
With the explosion of cryptocurrency over the past of years, many have been debating the longevity and legitimacy of cryptocurrencies in our global economy. However, those with a keener eye were fascinated with something far more useful and widely applicable: Blockchain — the technology that made cryptocurrency possible in the first place.
We think of Enterprise organisations as closed societies, working in isolation in pursuit of the advantage over their competitors. It might come as a surprise then to think about how much Open Source software is used within even the largest and most secretive companies around the world.
Whether or not you literally “own” the infrastructure, application or networks that deliver your apps and services, as an IT leader or technology professional you own the outcome. Here are five factors that you should consider to deliver an optimal user experience while using AWS.
The warnings have been out there: Mobile and social accelerating customer interactions. Big data providing deep lakes of potential knowledge. Billions of connected gadgets bringing forth a global Internet of Things (IoT).
Serverless is an emerging “new normal” for web-based applications and services where the unit of deployment and billing is a single function a few lines of code in length.

Smart homes and smart cities will likely be top of mind in conversations around the Internet of Things (IoT), but the application of IoT is becoming far more widespread than these two areas as a growing number of industries adopt IoT devices.
There is no need for data scientists to be outright software experts thanks to emerging tools for using data delivered through the cloud. Making use of the cloud as a shared platform ensures the delivery of the right data to the right people at the right time, without the inefficiency of workflows passing through many hands through hand-overs.
The term cloud computing became popular somewhere halfway the first decade of this century, short before the launch of Amazon S3 and EC2. In the little over 10 years since, we have come a long way. However, I believe we still have to uncover the full potential of cloud computing. Although not part of the formal characteristics of cloud computing, there have been are two simmering expectation of cloud computing that we have failed to meet up to now.
With the soaring number of mobile and IoT devices, and the onslaught of new apps that businesses are faced with on their wireless network, it is time for innovation that can help IT scale and meet these new requirements.
