12 Jul Anatomy of Insight: Prediction and Qualitative BI

Anatomy of Insight

Not just any body Body is a versatile word as it has broad application. In the context of astronomy, we describe celestial bodies. In topographical mapping, there are bodies of water. But in my interactions, I most often encounter “body” in the context of human physiology. The word, “body” implies both clearly defined limits (i.e. […]

02 Jul What’s in an EA Repository

EA Intranet

Understanding context of systems and data in an enterprise is essential for successful IT project alignment and portfolio simplification. Enterprise architecture frameworks such as Zachman, Archimate and TOGAF provide great mechanisms for documenting systems and data, and architecture diagrams are often worth much more than a thousand words. But what good are documents unless the […]

21 May What it Means to Be, and Why AI Needs to Know

Semantic Primitives

Interaction between humans is intricate, intimate and beautiful. Good conversations are like dances and can leave one feeling fulfilled and whole.

Layered Model

Today I’ll address parallel computing and models for breaking down computational problems. I will not address the question of autonomy today, but save the question of empowering independent agents for a future post. ANS and Multiprocessors Artificial Neural Systems (ANS) are probably the closest approximation of the mechanical brain paradigm, so it is useful to know how […]

09 Jan 2017 – The Year of AI

Recently, January 5th, 2017, on my ride into work I was listening to BBC World Update with Dan Damon, as I often do, and heard him interviewing someone about the new artificial intelligence (AI) app for the British National Health Service from Babylon Health (similar story on TechCrunch). It’s a Chat Bot for SMS text […]

07 Dec Curating Digital Meaning

content-without-process

I think of museums when I hear about curating. Meaning is, in a strange way, an artifact, simultaneously ancient and modern. Meaning has existed as long as perception has existed in the most rudimentary forms of life. For the purposes of my blog, I define meaning as: “the fruit of understanding and the fuel of […]
