Everyday AI – it’s not just about robots

We live in an age where, according to Gartner, in just one year AI will be taking on many of the mundane tasks in our lives. Digital assistants – such as Microsoft’s Cortana, Apple’s Siri and Google Now – might not yet be able to take out the rubbish or wash the dishes but they can recognize voice instructions and connect different search terms with sophisticated data sets to offer users relevant information. This autonomous or artificial intelligence (AI) – or in-app AI – will take the Internet of Things (IoT) to a new level.

Coding, today's modern language

As the most recent GCSE and A-level results were announced at the end of August, there seemed to be a lot of hand-wringing in the media about the fall in the number of students studying French, German and Spanish and what that might mean for skills in the global business market. I couldn’t help but think about my own school days. Like me, you might remember hours spent learning verb tables and how to ask someone, in French, for two beers please. I never felt this would be much use in life (apart from the beer) and if I’m brutally honest, in business. I’ve forgot almost everything I learnt.

Industry Views: does Apple want iOS everywhere?

The extension of Siri as a digital assistant to another, important, part of Apple’s ecosystem signals an ongoing industry trend. According to Gartner, mobile digital assistants will take on tactical mundane processes such as filling out names, addresses and credit card information by the year end of 2015.  And, as Apple’s Siri and Google’s Cortana become more popular, they open up direct marketing opportunities and information engagement with users within their closed ecosystems.

What to do when someone steals your idea

Majority of developers have never built mobile apps, survey reveals

In recent years, one can be forgiven for thinking that mobile apps are the only pathway to the future, and that everyone in IT has been making the shift away from traditional server or PC applications to mobile apps -- many of which allegedly can be built and deployed at the snap of a finger.

Look up and outside to avoid development disasters

The pressure on enterprises to ensure their application development procedures are effective is growing by the day. An app starts its life as the answer to a business need. The old solution would be to approach IT with a request to meet this need. The developers would then churn into action: define, create, deploy - all with their own bundle of time lapses. By the time all of them were realized, months could have passed, leaving the original need outdated. You would be attempting to move a battleship to avoid a missile.
