Data-driven decision-making is first and foremost about the organization. The most important—and arguably the most difficult—aspect of transitioning to a data-driven organization that practices DataOps is the cultural shift required to move to a data mindset. read more »
As the use of intelligent algorithms, machine learning and natural language processing becomes more entrenched in advanced data analytics, technology will increasingly supplement the skills of humans to produce faster and more accurate medical diagnoses. Read the source article at Tech Financials..
Contrary to the perceived threat of technology disruption to the banking sector, experts have allayed those fears, insisting that Fintech can and will revolutionise banking. Financial technology (FinTech) experts who assembled in Lagos for a two-day disruptive innovation conference held recently at the instance of Interswitch, a major player in the FinTech space, identified collaboration as the way forward, with transaction banks and fintechs leveraging their respective strengths and minimisin..

There’s no value in the data without advanced algorithms of machine learning. Value can be created in surprisingly simple ways by putting data to work. Peloton Tech’s truck platooning system is a case study that illustrates how IIoT is already creating value. The system uses vehicle-to-vehicle communication to connect the braking and acceleration between two trucks. The lead truck controls the simultaneous acceleration and braking of the whole fleet, reacting faster than a human or even a sensor s..
