Police shut down massive iPhone counterfeiting operation - Reuters

Police in Beijing have raided a factory that produced more than 41,000 fake iPhones worth as much as 120 million yuan ($19 million).

Police arrested nine people, including a married couple who led the counterfeiting operation, after a raid in May on the factory, run under the guise of a gadget maintenance shop on the northern outskirts of the Chinese capital.

The details were revealed in a social media posting on Sunday by the public security bureau in Beijing.

What is Ethos?

Our CEO +Robert Pye summarises what we are and how we are organised. As a retired person I can empathise with the last section! :)

The power of Predictive Models

This crossed the radars this morning. Which was serendipitous, because we were discussing some of these issues in the weekly Ethos Partners' meeting earlier - and viewing some prototypes in development which can go this way. As +Martin de Heaver is fond of pointing out, we can reduce the cost of IoT sensors by using this kind of technique.

More images from Pluto fly-by

Some more images have come in and they are superb. NASA has also produced a video showing a couple of areas passed over. A tremendous mission! Bravo all at +NASA 
NASA has released the latest batch of images and detailed fresh discoveries from New Horizons as the unmanned probe hurtles away from Pluto and out of the Solar System.

Cognitive Watson?

This is a good article on some areas of research that the IBM Watson team are experimenting with. It touches on some aspects of creativity - the big difference betwen computers and Humans. Hmmm.
Cognitive computing is transforming the way we work. It also offers a window to the limitations of the mind to help us overcome them.

+Peter Feltham Thanks for sharing. I'm keenly interested in the capabilities of cognitive computing. In particular any technology applications that focus on how small business can utilize big data for intelligent, informed decision making.

Whoa. Smart Meters could cause demand bubbles

A study by the University of Bremen has concluded that Smart Meters for electricity supply could cause chaotic and unpredictable demand patterns. Now I come to think about it, they may well be right!

Story
Tagline
Software Architect, Researcher, SocialMedia person. Ethics matter to me.
Introduction
Officially I'm retired, or was, until that Rob Pye called me back to help with Ethos 4 years ago. Especially when I found out about their TeamArmy initiative which raises money to support (and mentor) ex-Services folk, including the Wounded Warriors. Better yet, as an ex-racer and driving enthusiast, I discovered that Ethos had supported the much esteemed team at MissionMotorsports led by Major Jim Cameron.

Other interests include travel, different cultures (I've lived abroad for most of my life all over Europe and North America), fine foods and wines, and music, especially live music of many types.

I also help to organise meetings at the House of Commons with GlobalNet 21. Use it or lose it!
