Links November 2017

Large links harvest this month, both in number and in topics. More than the last ones. One of the largest, in fact. And I honestly have no clue on the reason. A good number of the links send us to texts worth a slow and deep reading. Some of these texts are worth an individual post with a deeper analysis, but I’m not sure to have the time to write them:

These are the links:

Your Company Doesn’t Need a Digital Strategy

Technology doesn’t provide value to a business. It never has (except for technology in products). Instead, technology’s value comes from doing business differently because technology makes it possible.

Uber finally strikes a deal with SoftBank

Interesting moves in the industry:

“SoftBank is looking to buy a 14% share of the company”

What my personal chat bot is teaching me about AI’s future

Ro-bots, artificial intelligence, and the related challenges:

“as much as I’m training my Replika to sound like me, my Replika is training me how to interact with artificial intelligence.”

Self-driving trucks are now delivering refrigerators

There are some people that see this as the future, …, because they do not know it is already happening:

“companies that believe semis, not personal cars, are the smartest use of autonomous technology, or at least the best way to get it onto the road ASAP”

Will Privacy Survive the Future?

Big dilemas:

“There needs to be an emphasis on educating and engaging the general public about the complexities of these issues and the potential solutions available. The current solution may not be robust or clear, but having these discussions will get us there.”

CIOs and the Future of IT

“Back office says, “We will build it, and you (the employee) will use it.” BT says, “We will sense and in some cases anticipate what you (the customer) want, and we will build it.””

The FDA has approved the first digital pill

HEre we have the telltale pill:

“The pill is fitted with a tiny ingestible sensor that communicates with a patch worn by the patient — the patch then transmits medication data to a smartphone app which the patient can voluntarily upload to a database for their doctor and other authorized persons to see”

Corporate innovation— the next chapter of digital transformation

Voluntarism versus reality?

“75% of senior executives believe their organizations have a culture of innovation, but only 37% of employees feel the same.”

What Happens When Machines Know More About People than People Do?

“Many of these cues would probably be completely invisible to human awareness, as imperceptible as a dog whistle. But the sensors and algorithms would surely pick them up.”

The Avoidable Mistakes Executives Continue to Make After a Data Breach

Just some common sense and professionality:

“Executives today must operate under the assumption that they will experience a cyber incident that will require them to notify their customers, investors, and regulators”

The Future of Surgery Is Robotic, Data-Driven, and Artificially Intelligent

“new wave of innovation will be characterized by the convergence of surgical robotics with AI and data gathered from robotic systems.”
