  • Human digital twins and evolution: The real Westworld? Computerworld | Jun 24 At the moment, digital twins are rudimentary and limited. But as they evolve, could we wind up with Westworld-type twins that could be a boon to productivity?
  • AMD And The Importance Of A Tagline TG Daily | Jun 23 AMD just rolled out a new Tagline that speaks to its strongest underappreciated skill: the ability to partner closely and think out of the box while doing so. The tagline is “Together we advance_” and the underscore at the end is intentional so that they can add something like “smart cities” to whatever effort they are highlighting. Let’s talk about taglines this week.
  • The Birth of Google's 'Sentient' AI and the Problem It Presents TechNewsWorld | Jun 20 One of the big news items last week was that a leading AI researcher, Blake Lemoine, had been suspended after going public that he believed that one of Google’s more advanced AIs had attained sentience. Most experts agree that it hadn’t, but that would likely be true regardless of whether it had because we tend to connect sentience to being human and AIs are anything but human. But what the world considers sentience is changing. The state I live in, Oregon, and much of the EU have moved to identify and categorize a growing list of animals as sentient.
  • The Video Phone Has Come a Long Way from Bell Labs to Cisco's New Video Phone 8875 techspective | Jun 17 One of the most interesting announcements back in the 1960s was the AT&T video phone that was just around the corner. And in anything but a whirlwind execution, here we are around sixty years later and Cisco has announced a truly viable video phone, the Cisco Video Phone 8875. It’s an impressive piece of hardware that I honestly would love to put on my own desk. Let’s talk about the troubled history of the video phone and why it has taken so long to bring a viable solution to market at scale.

Twitter and bots

"Social media platforms have had bots for a long time. Bots have been connected to attempts to influence the US election and shape opinions about Russia's war on Ukraine… Advertising to bots isn't going to have a good close rate because bots don't buy products.”

Elon Musk hinting at Twitter layoffs

"It is generally poor form to announce a layoff before you do your due diligence ... An announcement like this puts your top performers on notice that their jobs are at risk, and given the current job market, they may now leave preemptively ... This move shows a surprising level of inexperience when it comes to doing a company acquisition."

Dell’s supply chain

[Enderle said the company’s claims about its strong supply chain are valid. Both Dell and Apple have fared better than others, according to Enderle.] “They haven’t been hit that hard at all by the logistics nightmare that has torn up other industries and other technology companies.”
