Qualcomm puts silicon brain in flagship Snapdragon 820 chip
Qualcomm wants to help future mobile devices learn about their users, by putting cognitive computing capabilities into its next mobile microprocessor, the Snapdragon 820.The chip will provide mobile devices with some brain-like learning capabilities by incorporating features from Qualcomm's Zeroth platform. Mobile devices built with the Snapdragon 820 will be able to learn about users over time, picking up human activity patterns and anticipating actions.Putting the machine learning features on the chip, rather than in the cloud, will make mobile devices more personal and more useful than they are today, said Derek Aberle, president of Qualcomm, in a news conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Monday.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Slack: Collaboration that actually works!
Getting a group of people working on a project to communicate with each other is easy; you just give 'em all email and stand back … and what you'll see is chaos. The explosion of messages will be immediate and the struggle to keep threads of discussion on track and in context means that decisions get obscured and missed, responsibilities become unclear, direction wanders, and documents get lost. The conclusion: Communication is easy, collaboration is hard.If you've experienced this outer ring of hell then you've also probably tried the likes of Google+ or Basecamp in an attempt to curb the chaos and you'll have found that while some aspects of communication improved, overall collaboration didn't. The problem is that these services aren't really focused on the core challenge of how to support collaboration; they're more oriented towards project management or a simple substitute for email.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

The downside to mass data storage in the cloud
  The cloud can be an enormously cost-effective way to increase storage and computing musculature, and also, sadly, a way to further add misery to those seeking privacy—or who just want to be left alone. It's rare to see organizations stand up and shout, "we'll not give your data to anyone!" or "the life of all stored data, except opt-in assets you want us to store, is always 90 days!" or "yes, we can determine in absolute certainty that your data has been erased to protect you and your identity."The cloud, in some warrens, has become a storage ground for the various factories of "big data," whose ideals are generally to sell things to consumers and businesses. Correlating facts is huge. Ask Target, whose insight into discovering pregnancies helped them capture a nicely profitable market in the pregnancy and new mother world. Smart, you say. There is a downside to this.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Reminder that the Internet, too, could have saved Coca-Cola from 'New Coke' debacle
Don Keough, retired chief operating officer at Coca-Cola, died earlier this week at the age of 88. He is described in a Fortune headline as "The real boss behind Coke's secret formula."Among the accomplishments credited to Keough is one that directly involved that secret formula, namely convincing CEO Roberto Goizueta in 1985 to reverse course on the disaster that was "New Coke" in favor of returning to the original recipe.News of Keough's death had me rereading a 2010 Buzzblog  post that involved this thought experiment: Let's rewrite history: It was 25 years ago tomorrow, April 23, 1985, that the world's most famous soft drink company committed arguably the world's most famous product development/marketing gaffe: New Coke.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
