2 billion of coffee lost to Covid

When Starbucks launched its apps for pre-ordering coffee and decrease queuing in their stores they actually discovered that the queues just shifted, and actually got longer, as too many people pre-order their coffee and then had to queue for the pick up. but that was in a pre-Covid time. Now …

Covid is a game changer for Tele-Medicine

I already touched upon the boost given to activities from “remote” by the lock.down first and the social distancing. Tele-working and tele-education are obvious examples. Healthcare, on the other hand, would seem to be a “hands-on” activity. True, we have been talking about tele-medicine, tele-diagnoses, even tele-surgery for quite a …

A changing landscape of industry competition

If we look back fifty years we can wonder at the tremendous change that swept the industry. Companies that were solid as rocks and leaders in their field have disappeared (do you still remember ITT -telecommunications- or UNIVAC – computers?), others were born out of nowhere (Google, Facebook, Amazon,… of …

Leveraging Patterns – VII

As noticed in previous posts sensors embedded in the ambient, in our homes, in appliances, in power meters and of course in wearable (I would say that our smartphone has become a wearable, we never leave home without it…) harvest data that can be used to identify patterns of the …

Leveraging Patterns – VI

Looking a bit further into the future, smart grids can become widespread sensors, covering a factory, a city, a railway infrastructure, a whole region or Country.For sure smart grids will need plenty of data for balancing power demand with power offering and these data are both generated and used within …

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 …
