How virtual assistants will build knowledge-based relationships based on trust

Trends in the Living Networks

However this also ties back to the themes of my first book on Developing Knowledge-Based Client Relationships , which I applied to customer relationships in Chapter 4 of my book Living Networks , illustrated by this diagram taken from the book on the left. However this requires trust in how that personal knowledge will be used. The value to users of true knowledge-based context-aware assistants will be massive, but they will only get there by truly earning our trust.

Wanted: More types of machine learning

David Linthicum

Now that public cloud computing has made it cheap, I’m seeing all types of cloud-based applications applying this technology effectively. Supervised learning means we have to train the knowledge base directly, providing labels for data, such as an image being a person, animal, or plant. You’ll need to provide some sort of signal to the knowledge engine that associates good behaviors with a positive flag and bad behaviors with a negative one.

Machine learning operations don’t belong with cloudops

David Linthicum

This caused the knowledge models in the machine learning systems to train with bad data and required that the new information in the knowledge base be removed and the models rebuilt. Although those worked fine, they too needed to be backed out of the knowledge database considering that the operational data was not in a good state. It’s Monday morning, and after a long weekend of system trouble the cloud operations team is discussing what happened.

Benefits of STEM Education and Publishing

Kitaboo on EdTech

STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—is a curriculum based on these four ideas. Instead of segregating these four disciplines in separate and discrete subjects, STEM interlinks them together into a cohesive learning paradigm, which is based on real-world applications. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.”
