Industrial IoT Will be Attacked

Tripwire, Inc., a security company, announced the results of a study that looked at the rise of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) deployment in organizations, and to what extent it is expected to cause security problems in 2017.

On the Evolution of Analytics

Take a look at IBM’s version of “The Evolution of Analytics:”theevolutionofanalyticsI still cannot say I understand completely what “Cognitive Analytics” is.

Deloitte published an article on this subject in 2014 entitled Cognitive Analytics. The article lists three key elements of Cognitive Analytics:

In practical terms, cognitive analytics is an extension of cognitive computing, which is made up of three main components: machine learning, natural language processing, and advancements in the enabling infrastructure.

I get the machine learning (ML) part.  The definition I prefer for ML is this:
