Be a Smart Port City of Call!Open in a New Window

Port of Rotterdam Authority, Photographer: Eric Bakker Over the years, ports have constantly evolved and embraced innovation to stay relevant. Just think about the advent of the bridge crane and shipping containers, which radically transformed how materials were shipped and handled. Once again, the winds of change are blowing. Homogenous competition among ports is forcing operators to think about value innovation. With Brexit coming down the tracks and the US negotiating new global trade agreements, things look set to become even more complex. The current business model of seeking competitive advantage and profitable growth by focusing ... READ MORE

But on the flip side, if you refresh too soon and for the wrong reasons, it could be a costly decision that eats up most of your IT budget. So How Do You Find That Server Refresh “Sweet Spot”?

Taking the Fear Factor Out of AIOpen in a New Window

For decades, films like Space Odyssey, War Games, Terminator and The Matrix have depicted the future and what it would be like if artificial intelligence (AI) took over the world. Fast forward to 2019 and AI is quickly becoming a reality. The things we only used to see in the movies are improving our daily lives and we often don’t realize it. We’ve been living with AI assistance for quite some time. We use Waze and Google Maps to help us predict traffic patterns and find the shortest driving routes. We let Roomba navigate our homes ...

Not Just Another G: What Exactly is 5G?Open in a New Window

Next time you settle down on the couch to watch a Netflix movie, give a passing thought to the technology at the backend powering your entertainment. We talk about how technology has transformed the way we do business, but I think the changes have been equally radical on the home front. Just ten years ago, we all had cable or terrestrial TV and cell phones were there to make calls while on the move. To quote W.B Yeats’ famous lines, ‘All has changed, changed utterly.’ Streaming TV content Today, we’re viewing on-demand, streaming TV services, like ... READ MORE

Film, Pixel, PointOpen in a New Window

The following is a guest post from Glenn Gainor, President, Innovation Studios, Sony Entertainment & Technology Let me take you on a journey and start off by telling you that I’ve never publicly shared this story… until now. Some 20 years ago, on a film called “Happy Texas,” I had a problem the night before shooting. It seemed like everything was in order – we had the cameras on the truck, we had the grip and electric equipment loaded; the crew was ready—I had personally spoken to each department head and we had the locations all ...
