Leveraging Patterns – V

Now, let’s take, as an example, a power utility that has deployed electronic meters to its millions of customers (Italian power distributor Enel has deployed 32 million 2nd generation electronic meters). These meters can measure instantaneous power consumption and communicate data to the cloud. So far data are aggregated in …

Leveraging Patterns – IV

There are quite a number of characteristics that can be used to create a digital signature. For humans, as an example, we can use face recognition technologies, as mentioned, or gait recognition (this latter is based on image recognition plus movement analyses). Notice that iris and fingerprint analyses are not …

Leveraging Patterns – III

A digital signature is a pattern identifying in a unique way an entity. Notice that this entity can be a specific washing machine, a person, an industrial activity, even a city. No matter what, if in a given context you can find (through signal processing) a pattern matching the digital …

Leveraging Patterns -II

Think about your day. Most likely on week-days you live home around 8, get some forms of transportation that goes through the same roads and get to the office around 8:45. On week ends the “pattern” change and may differs significantly one week end from the other although they have …

Leveraging Patterns – I

The Digital Transformation is all about data. It creates data, it leverages on data, it uses data as a substitute of physical objects. In fact there are so many data that one of the opportunities arising from DX is to explore those data to extract useful information.  Rather than using …

Digital Transformation: Impact on jobs – VII

As AR and VR become the bridge linking the cyberspace to the physical space and an integral tool in several professions. As any sophisticated tool they require specific training and in particular the acquisition of skill -through experience- in moving in between the cyberspace and the physical space. Any lay …

Digital Transformation: Impact on jobs – VI

jo Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, more and more, are becoming the tools to access the cyberspace. As more and more data are available and artificial intelligence/data analytics dig into these data creating new ones the complexity of the information exceeds the analytical capability of the single worker, yet this …

Digital Transformation: Impact on jobs – V

Although the Digital Transformation is sharply decreasing cost by moving activities to the cyberspace the cost of maintaining the cyberspace is growing and part of it relates to the increased number of jobs needed. In several areas the shortage of skills is one of the main hurdles faced by companies …

Digital Transformation: Impact on Jobs – IV

The Digital Transformation by drastically flattening the value chains, stimulating the aggregation of ecosystems (much easier in the world of bits) and accelerating the obsolescence of knowledge drives the emergence of new types of jobs and new ways of offering one’s expertise. This has already been pointed out in a …

Digital Transformation: Impact on Jobs – III

In March 2019 the OECD published a report “Preparing for the changing Nature of Work in the Digital Era” analysing the various impacts of digitalisation on current work activities. It pointed out that 14% of jobs may disappear as processes and activities (particularly “white collar” activities) move to the cyberspace …
