This week on Active Information, I expanded on a random thought that popped into my head while watching the Patriots-Broncos game. Go Pats!
Alas, as I didn’t lead with any of those buzzwords in the title, the post is sadly under-read. Anyway, the link and blurb follow. I’m off to hone my buzzword skills.
Quite possibly, we will find ourselves in a “there’s an algorithm to decide that” world. But, until the talent shortage is stemmed, we’ll need to get our rationality delivered.
My latest posts on the HPIO Active Information blog:
Streaming through a Computational World — (most popular post to date)
To take advantage of the computational world, or the nearer term internet of things, we need to infuse smarts throughout our data collection networks. We need to employ up-front and intermediate filters, traffic cops, aggregators, pattern detectors, and intelligent agents. We need to get over being data hoarders, and have the astuteness to leave data behind.
Busting cultural resistance via experimentation platforms — (changing change)
Culture, mistrust of the data, lack of interest. These very human factors are adoption barriers for 46% of the respondents. Yet, these barriers aren’t new. Nor, confined to big data and advanced analytics. To change a culture, you need to bring proof to the table. And proof requires hands-on experimentation and real-world data. We need data to prove that we need data. How will we get that?
