The future of data analytics in transportation has many applications and opportunities. The challenge is certainly not the ability to generate data.The solution therefore, is pushing forward using significantly improved means and methods to gather and understand the data in order for business decisions to be informed by better insights, writes Wade Rosado, Director of Analytics for Urban Insights.

With device infestation running rampant, it isn’t enough to have sensor-laden furniture pieces. The true win, for which HomeKit shows much promise, is to put control of the entire home, including the furniture within it, into one elegant experience that fits in the palm of your hand, writes Matt Witt, EVP and Director of Digital Integration at TRIS3CT.

As job seekers and recruiters continue their respective searches in earnest, a new tool is quickly rising to the top as a way to find the best people for the right positions: big data. Knowing how big data is being used now for recruiting and job searching can give people an advantage over the competition, writes Rick Delgado.

Before desktop computing, data was in the same glass house that did the processing. Then the PC unleashed that data. But now, we need to fundamentally rethink this approach and bring the two back together in a breakthrough innovation for one of the most ambitious science projects ever: the Square Kilometre Array, writes Ton Engbersen, the Scientific Director of the ASTRON & IBM Center for Exascale Technology.

There is every reason to hope that the impending tidal wave of health-tech innovations will result in significantly decreased costs for our healthcare system and improved health outcomes for patients. To track our progress we will be quantifying and measuring many things. This will be field day for big data. But I am worried that as we track and analyze these medical metrics we will get caught up in the data and analytics. I hope we don’t lose sight of the higher purpose: meaningful improvement in the quality of real people’s lives, writes Frank Moss.

There is no room in our Internet-enabled future for walled gardens that promote secrecy, undermine privacy and discourage innovation. Where the Internet is going, it needs no walls. Tesla physically tore down the patent wall as you enter their headquarters: Who’s next? asks Rafael Laguna, co-founder and CEO of OX.

In today’s world of mobile, social, cloud and big data analytics, speed is of the essence. While it’s still important to have a plan, with clear objectives and implementation milestones, it’s equally important to move quickly and learn as you go. For many IT professionals, this feels uncomfortable. The reality is that detailed implementation plans can be out of date before they are completed, so it’s important to start somewhere, experiment, fail quickly and learn as you start to scale up. These are just a few of the reasons to consider cloud solutions and a few guiding principles as you start your cloud journey, writes IBM's John Mason.

We believe the companies that continue to ignore people’s call for privacy do so at the risk of being left behind. So, if you’ve been doing it wrong, now is the time to make privacy part of your user experience, writes Satyender Mahajan, CTO of Mustbin.

We’re certainly a way off from Glass being considered socially acceptable, but rewind more than five years and how many of us really envisioned swiping away on tablets? With the Glass at Work program and Google unveiling its developer partnerships, the company clearly means business when it comes to Glass. So now is a good time for IT to start at least considering how the technology can be integrated into their organization and where it can add the most value, writes Huddle.com's Alastair Mitchell.

In a world where some of the biggest technology and science challenges of the past five decades are cracked nearly every day, there remains a problem that we just haven’t solved: True artificial intelligence, writes James Everingham, CEO of Luminate.

"As we begin to see that exchange of data, the patient will be able to gain greater control of their health information and data, and that is going to be a significant challenge in terms of redefining traditional physician–patient roles and exchanges. I believe this disruption will drive improved performance... The next step from this is to build even better predictive algorithms that are at the patient’s disposal and help them make informed decisions about their health," Michael Dulin of Carolina’s HealthCare System tells Roy Marsten, PhD, founder and Chief Scientist at Emcien.

We are all familiar with the adage “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Too often we are feeding our students instead of teaching them how to feed themselves. The disciplines that do that best are STEM-related, writes Stephen F. DeAngelis, President and CEO of the cognitive computing firm Enterra Solutions.
