Cloudera: Extract Benefit From All Your Data

Cloudera delivers a modern platform for machine learning and analytics optimized for the cloud. Cloudera was founded in 2008 by some of the brightest minds in Silicon Valley, including data thought leaders and experts from Google (Christophe Bisciglia), Yahoo! (Amr Awadallah), Oracle (Mike Olson), and Facebook (Jeff Hammerbacher). The founders held at their core the belief that open source, open standards and open markets are the best and that belief is still central to their values. From their beginning as the company making Apache Hadoop safe for enterprises they quickly evolved to provide a full platform for most all modern enterprise data needs, from storage to processing to analysis. They have the widest and deepest instal base in the ecosystem and a large array of partners who have engineered solutions designed to work well together.

Improbable: Simulation platform technology

Improbable is developing an operating environment that makes building simulated worlds possible. Improbable is developing SpatialOS; a distributed operating system that makes building simulated worlds possible. Simulated worlds provide unique insight to those asking questions of complex systems. As well as enabling completely new experiences in gaming, simulated worlds can solve significant problems in areas as diverse as defence, energy, city efficiency, health, and finance. Improbable is providing software foundations in support of IoT, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence right now. Tomorrow the sky is the limit!

For some of the massive potential for this type of technology see this video of Herman Narula:

There are so many use cases for this technology. Games of course. But also simulations of all sorts. And real models for science.

Here is one use case of interest, a simulation of the backbone of the Internet:

Amazon AWS: Dominating In Cloudcomputing, Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and IoT

We have been tracking Amazon for years, but as a reference point consider that in November 2006 BusinessWeek ran a cover story with the title "Jeff Bezos' Risky Bet" where the concept of cloud computing as a business model disruptor was catapulted into the mainstream. Since then the risky bet has paid off for Amazon and has helped transform the business ecosystem in ways few could have predicted.

Amazon considers cloud computing to be the on-demand delivery of IT resources and applications via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Others may use different definitions but Amazon is the 500lb gorilla so for this post at least we will say we agree!

For an August 2016 update on how things are going see the video at this link and below:

The power of the AWS cloud is now driving continuous advancements in Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and IoT.

In Artificial Intelligence, one fantastic real-world capability is the AI enabled Amazon Echo, which is really the closest thing you can get to a Star Trek computer.

In IoT, Amazon is providing a means to control and configure IoT devices with easy to use graphical interfaces. They call this feature Amazon IoT. This can be used to control large scale IoT deployments or smaller scale home capabilities (for example, you can buy a home IoT experiment kit from Amazon called the Intel Edison and control that by Amazon IoT, a great way to learn).

Recorded Future: Web Intelligence Software Platform To Anticipate Threats and Capitalize On Opportunities

We have reported on Recorded Future since their founding and have watched closely as they have evolved to become a full scope web intelligence software platform able to make unique and very positive contributions to enterprise missions. Recorded Future provides a comprehensive source of past, planned and predicted events on the web. Key to their capabilities is the world's first temporal analytics engine.

Missions served by Recorded Future are as varied as the web itself. Anything humanity is doing on the web can be better served by the temporal analytics of Recorded Future. But illustrative examples include contributions to Cyber Intelligence, Corporate Security, Competitive Intelligence and Defense Intelligence.

In each of those domains, Recorded Future enables faster assessments, better awareness and smarter analysis.

For an example of contributions Recorded Future can make to cyber intelligence see the video at this link and embedded below:
