U.S. military and intelligence agencies continue to look for new ways to use artificial intelligence to sift through huge amounts of video imagery in hopes of freeing analysts to identify threats and otherwise put their skills to better use. The latest AI effort announced last week by the research arm of the U.S. intelligence apparatus focuses on video surveillance ... Full article
“Transformation” is on everyone’s lips – but what does this really mean? In the past, CIOs were preoccupied with aligning IT with the business, but now there’s a sense of urgency about embedding IT into the business, improving the experience of end customers (including internal customers) and driving real business value. This all starts with understanding how application integration, ... Full article
For decades, high performance computing has driven more accurate, detailed and faster seismic exploration. As oil and gas have becomes harder to find, HPC has been essential to keeping energy supplies flowing – to the point where new discovery and extraction techniques have driven up supply, driving energy prices down and making the United States a net energy exporter. ...

As IoT implementations explode in scale, decreasing sensors’ size, lowering their power consumption and extending connectivity range become increasingly critical considerations. Semtech, the $600 million mixed-signal semiconductor maker, is taking on these IoT building block issues, announcing new LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency (RF) technology for lower power wide area network (LPWAN) IoT use cases. Designed for sensor ... Full article
Microservices, the agile architecture on which applications are built as a collection of different smaller services rather than an entire application, are being used to rework existing applications along with new IT initiatives, a vendor survey found. Red Hat, an early proponent of the lightweight approach through its OpenShift and JBoss middleware platforms, polled customers in November 2017 to ... Full article
Securing critical data while simultaneously making it more accessible is the challenge for enterprise IT departments, a new vendor survey finds. In a report released Wednesday (Jan. 10), big data integration specialist Syncsort said it examined what data protection and IT strategies companies are deploying to counter hackers, data breaches, service disruptions linked to natural disasters along with "escalating ...
