Episode 14: Replicate For Victory!

November 25, 2020

In this week's episode Matt looks at the approaches taken by technology services companies such as Accenture and IBM to replicating projects, the efficiency savings this brings, and how it represents the key to unlocking huge amounts of market value. He also digs into some Transforma Insights research on how Artificial Intelligence is being deployed in the real world today and what lessons that gives us for the future.

Matt digs into the 2020 version of the Eclipse IoT survey and finds a lot of interesting data, including the rise of the hyperscalers, the growing importance of connected agriculture, fears over connectivity, trends in OS, protocols and edge compute, and something related to Tex-Mex food. There’s also time to delve into the recent Transforma Insight report on IoT Application Enablement Platforms as well as a bit of a follow up to the IBM discussion from a few weeks ago.

Episode 10: The what, when and why of Artificial General Intelligence

October 7, 2020

Matt delves into the murky world of Artificial General Intelligence, the aspirational end goal for billions of dollars of investment, but with little clear idea of what the applied benefit might be. He asks what AGI is, discrete from AI as a whole, who is doing it and why? On the way he explores David Beckham's right boot, the threat of alien invasion, the reason why the hyperscalers like Google and Microsoft are so interested, Nvidia’s likely acquisition of ARM and the arrival of GPT-3.

In this episode we examine technology 'unicorns', start-ups that command huge valuations. In particular we look at the different valuations of hardware, software and services companies, and why some are considered more attractive than others, and why this might be heavily influenced by survivorship bias leading to some poor decisions to pivot what companies focus on.

An extensive strand of recent research at Transforma Insights has focused on Communications Service Providers (CSPs) and their activities in IoT. Episode 6 of the Wireless Noodle is the first of two episodes that focus on this topic. This one looks at the changing face of mobile networks, and the added complications from the arrival of 5G, the roll out of new Low Power Wide Area Networks, and the shutting off of 2G and 3G networks.

Episode 5: Machines of Loving Grace

September 1, 2020

The idea of the autonomous robot has captured the imagination of writers, movie-makers and intellectuals for decades. In Episode 5 of the Wireless Noodle we examine the reality of deployments of autonomous robotic systems in factories, hospitals, on the streets, and in the air. We look at the roll outs today and likely evolution over the next ten years, with particular interest in the degree to which we will see true autonomy.
