Today’s artificial intelligence/machine learning algorithms run on hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of data sets. Data’s rise as a valuable currency also subjects it to more extensive scrutiny. In the enterprise, greater AI governance must accompany machine learning’s growing use.
Business leaders should expect a substantial economic rebound across all sectors as the pandemic slowly moves into the rearview mirror. But what they should not expect is a supply chain that looks like it did before the pandemic.
Efficiently incorporating 5G’s potential in autonomous vehicles, is a challenge. It will require a rethink in terms of electronic design and associated components. Automakers — and their electronic components supplier partners — will need to understand how the vehicle itself is fundamentally shifting gears and becoming a data superhighway. That in turn will affect the kinds of electronics that can be reliably sourced and used.
Testing for microplastics — which are defined as any plastic material less than 5 mm in length — is not quite ready for prime time. It is not yet precisely clear what effects microplastics have on animals, including humans, and at what levels they may be harmful.

Autonomous vehicles are gearing up to coast along on 5G but what kinds of hardware and electronic components will they need under the hood?
Consumers are making more purchases online, and they expect delivery within two days, challenging retailers to grow e-commerce sales while speeding them up at the same time. Fortunately, technology is throwing retailers a lifeline, allowing them to use real-time data to gain more control over inventory and track it more precisely in the supply chain.
The construction industry faces a barrage of challenges, not the least of which is lagging productivity. But builders can overcome these productivity challenges and thrive using cloud technology.
California's geology and extreme rain and fires combined to collapse a portion of Highway 1 on the Big Sur coast. Could climate change be accelerating such incidents?
