Linear Fuzzy Logic AI Engine in Cloud Based Data Analysis

The LFL Engine is designed to allow a computer to emulate the decision making process of humans where there is not a direct mapping between the input and output based on membership to a few logical groups as implemented in a cloud based server to allow a cloud based artificial intelligence system or cloud based soft AI for data analysis.

XR, VR, AR and 35 other words that no one really has there head around…

robot-books-840x420Ok, so there is this ‘wearable’s’ “thing”… is some what ‘popular’ now days.  Really the only issue I have with this is the fact that no one can make up there mind about what all the words mean.  As far as I can tell here is the vernacular and more or less a consensus about what they mean, this includes XR and related tech buzz words as they are critical to understanding the XR landscape.

Ex Machina Movie Review

version1After months of mind numbing patience, I finally managed to see ‘Ex Machina’ the movie (http://exmachina-movie.com/ ). There have been a few AI centered or Singularity related movies the past few years such as Transcendence with Johnny Depp (love hate relationship with this movie) but ‘Ex Machina’ I really, really wanted to be good; and on many levels it was spectacular.

Machine Learning, BI and User Experience

D3-big_data_visualizations-500x338I’ve been friends with the CEO of an undisclosed BI company for some time and one of the things that our conversations have lead me to focus on is the idea of application heat mapping to look at how users behave and interact with an application. What is exciting is the innovative change, along with the orchestration engine and AI analytics of the IOE system, as an opportunity for how we do better application heat mapping and a great extension to the kinds of BI my friend’s company back east might be able to deliver to their users.

Transhuman Design – Experience Focused Engineering

Perfection-945x536Transhuman Design IS ‘Experience Focused Engineering’. Why? Admittedly, I’m coining this definition or phraseology; but it goes to what I do for a living and helps explain that to people outside the field. Further, this definition quantifies a philosophical approach that has been developing in the fields of User Experience Design and Software Engineering and Industrial hardware design and the like. Numerous trends are coming together and the products and services that are standing out are the ones focused on design. Continue reading

Introducing the Singularity Index – A Market Index focused on the Companies helping drive us towards Singularity

Introducing the Singularity Index. The Singularity Index (also referred to as the SI) is part of a statistical approach to looking at market trends, as it relates to relative motion in the market, towards or away from ‘Singularity’.

As the CTO (Chief Technology Officer) for one of the fastest growing companies in America (according to Fortune 500 Magazine), a big part of my job is following trends and predicting industry trends up to about 5 years out9. To help me do my job, for well over the past 10 years, I’ve worked out a process that has helped predict trends such as the emergence of the high end slates; which, in part, has been through statistical analysis and this has been a great tool for me in being fairly accurate. As the technology around the components that go into making the ‘Singularity’ (as defined later on in this article) real become more and more important to business, it has become an interesting tool, if nothing else, for looking at where we are going.
