Context Discovery And IoT Data

Sep
22

One of the most valuable aspects of the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) is the data it produces. Businesses use that data to support their decisions, and — as IoT grows — they need better tools for relevant and timely discovery. These days, discovery systems can find the right data without even knowing its structure, semantics, sensor description, or location. These systems can also deduce context information such as annotations and metadata.

IBM details next-gen Power 9 will fight to Intel’s data center strongholds

The story of how Intel rose to dominance in the server and workstation markets was written more than a decade ago. Once upon a time (the late 1980s and early 1990s), various RISC, CISC, and SPARC architectures dominated the high-end PC industry, even as consumer PCs overwhelmingly opted for x86 designs. Intel leveraged both economies of scale and its alliance with Microsoft to push x86 processors into both data centers and workstations. By 2000, Intel had seized the majority of the market, forcing companies like IBM and Sun into smaller and smaller niches.

Here are 4 ways to do things faster on your PC

Jun

We may take for granted that learning a computer is something that daily use alone will automatically give us, but that alone doesn’t give you the tools you need to use a computer more efficiently.

Instead, investing in a private computer tutor, showing up to lessons at a local Apple store, or picking up a book or tip from the Internet is a great idea if you want to start shaving off  seconds that amount to minutes that before you know it add up to hours.
