Really good to see the direction of this series--unlocked, as it's been among our greatest challenges in bringing in some cases badly needed solutions to large orgs. If BoDs don't understand the systems, they are likely to be manipulated by internal and external interests--we have a growing library of such cases. http://blogs.wsj.com/cio/2015/03/27/corporate-boards-and-cios-are-seeing-a-lot-more-of-each-other/?mod=WSJ_hps_sections_cio
Corporate boards are asking more pointed questions about technology strategy and vulnerabilities. CIOs have had to step up their game when presenting to the board, ditching jargon and providing specific details about risks, projects, personnel and costs.

Irving on complex systems. One of the reasons we relocated to NM is that while he doesn't mention here, SFI pioneered the field and continues to lead--small institution with visitors worldwide--I'm up there on average once per week. Kyield is a classic complex adaptive system--the real challenge in CAS (for applied vs theory), is in simplification and laser focus on objectives. In our case enormous work on components in computer networking combined with advances across all disciplines has made the continuously adaptive system technically viable as of 3-4 years ago on supercomputers, and about a year ago on low cost commodity components in data center and cloud.

Unlocked as of now--worth a read. Kim was editor at CIO magazine for years--just recently moved over to CIOJ. Generally supports what I am seeing and hearing; the only thing I'm not real happy about is insistence by some to have equity by board members before the company will become a customer. Fully disclosed not entirely against the investments and being a customer, but not good when it's used as leverage to gain access, particularly when it's critical technology.
Only a small minority of corporate boards have technology committees, despite the fact that many companies rely on business models built on data analytics, algorithms and software tools.

Brief but to the point -- not just limited to the NYT though high on list, I've shared some of this frustration. Media is not doing terribly well these days--being kind.

Q&A with one of the thought leaders and pioneers in AI. One of the trends I am uncomfortable with is the dual roles in academia and dominant corporations. We have three of the top AI lab directors in academia now also leading corp AI labs--Facebook, Baidu, and Google. More obvious to other disciplines like economics, organizational management and political science, it represents a severe phase of oligopoly, and I am quite certain it's very unhealthy, particularly given the network effect, expansion, and impact and competition with other industries.
The head of Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence Lab foresees a day when we all have artificial helpers that understand us, all of the information in the world, and what we need to know next.

Excellent reporting--unlocked. The enterprise differentially paradox (my blog) is that proprietary systems increasingly offer little over OSS when ubiquitous (unlike Kyield) other than very high cost, unless customized at great cost. It's not an OSS vs. proprietary, but rather a design issue. For example, at first glance it looks like this SDP would be stronger with Kyield to me.
The old notion of a network perimeter that can be defended by firewalls and security appliances is long out of date. A new notion of the Software Defined Perimeter addresses the fluid edge of the network in an era of mobile devices, the cloud and Internet-connected objects.

Wow--from a LANL watch dog group--a good example of how divided and emotional and money laden this topic is. As usual, based on some truth but the flip side is we need more advanced technology to disable these beasts. A far more rational case for economic development can be made--it's true labs have failed in that mission in NM. Only a few small investment flips, no big business wins. Tragic, strange alignment in several camps seem to like it that way.
