data is a root of everything...

Author

Thanks Brian, well worth the time going to the archive.

Author

Hello all from Edmonton, Alberta and late again.

Author

@vishalzie - agreed. And in there is opportunity

Author

Understanding the nature and meaning of unstructured information presents significant challenges that far exceed the capabilities of typical business intelligence tools that were, for the most part, designed and built for handling that is structured.

Author

@theokowd:  Sorry you had issues, all of the classes are now on archive.  thank you.

Author

@theokowd - hopefully the audio for the first three days is still available and you can go back and listen at your leisure.

Author

Oreo compression. What a concept!

Author

see you tomorrow!  thx again

Author

Thank you Brian I was able to get audio today however it kept cutting out costantly in the begining I just kept clicking the forward button for the first few miniuts and the audo began to work. It was intermittent several times during the whole lecture however I was able to hear the presentation. I lost the first three days of audio. We should have good telecomunications from now on.

Good by fron Toronto you all have a good day

Theo

Author

If you "pack" or "compress" them, you can get more than 8 per byte, honestly!

Author

Now is an Oreo a byte, or do we need 8 Oreos to a byte??

Author

So true re: util companies.  Nor would we want them to given current tech.  what would be fascinating is to see a modeling effort re: the ramp of energy demand driven by IT over time.  Obviously we are going to need some really powerful tech calvary to come to the rescue before the brown stuff hits the fan!  

Very thought provoking - thanks Brian.  See you tomorrow

Author

thx @vishalzie  --> reminded me i'm hungry and now have one more piece of nerd material to "impress" my kids.  I love it!

Author

Consider what is happening today - Google wantred to build a new data center in WA. We have plenty of hydro power in the NW, but still to get all of the power they needed they bought an aluminum smelter that had power rights. They closed the factory down to get the power.

Author

If you were to stack an exabyte of regular Oreo cookies (not the Double Stuf kind) into a neat tower of pleasure, the height of the tower would be the equivalent of 19,041,819 round trips to the moon.

Author

For people wondering about batteries and renewable energy see the following:

A Nation sized battery. AN intersting document indeed.

Author

thx again for hosting this!  looking forward to tomorrow's and any more in the future

have a great day!

Author

The problem with going heavy on utility stocks is they cant afford to build the infrastructure to deliver that kind of power.

Author

@BrianBailey - yes, they do but it's like buying things in brown paper wrappers.  It's a huge question we deal with every day.  Not only the social engineering issues from hackers, but legal issues should i leak financial transaction data.

Author

Thanks bstains - I will take a look at it.

Author

thanks for the link - I'll check it out

Author

Intel processors - as an example, cannot run at maximum speed all the time. They would get too hot. They can do it for short bursts - I think they call this reserve power or something like that.

Author

As for power usage, for the first time I recently heard someone give a presentation about effectively managing power end production of electricity.  This is an awesome idea and interesting approach to solving it.

Author

i am a student and dont know how to answer your questions on companies and their use of data....:/

Author

Or should I just plan to go extra heavy on my utility stock portfolio??  ;>)

 

Author

Power in chips is still a problem. In many chips if the entire thing were to be powered up at the same time, the chip would melt.

Author

bstains: I believe that today there is nothing stopping them from selling that information.

 

Author

Thank you Brian and Caleb

??? Does the current arc of development in IC's resolve this power issue or at least make it manageable?  

Author

Impact on education: Knowing how to find information, how to extract information is more valuable than having information. You must know how to extract value from the things around you.

Author

nice presentation..thankyou brian

 

Author

the power is staggering in how quickly it has been growing and will continue to grow. Even with tiny power sipping devices, there will be billions and it all adds up. 

Author

@jrochow441 - which example? Are you referring to the one about data mining and privacy?

 

Author

Brian and Celeb, thanks

 

 

Author

Thank you very much, see you tommorrow

Author

Thank you for nice presentation

Author

what is the impact on the education sector?

 

Author

Staggering info re: future power demands of IT environment!

Author

good question bstains. That is a really tough one. 

Author

If your mobile carrier (MC) can tell that you shopped at merchant A and merchant B who are competitors, can the MC sell that intel (minus the actual personal PMI info) to those merchants?  You're the target for posting real-time "value add services" to your device.  Do you feel that's invasion of your privacy?  Note that financial targeting of mobile devices (in lieu of your email address) is driving innovation (funding it) much like Google data mining pays for broadband advancements.  Not only phones, but now your TVs, media centers, etc. are also targets.

Author

especially here in the states!

Author

This is a confusing example.

Author

Our last product had issues with heat. We definitely took that into consideration when designing our current product line.  >70% power decrease.

Author

developing portable instruments drives us to do whatever it takes to make devices run at least 8-12 hours on one charge; implication: minimized devices active and lower processing frequencies

Author

In our RADAR application low power usage is of no concern - the faster the better!

Author

haha "marketting booboo"

Author

Power is not currently a requirement, but expect that to change in the future.

Author

to the chattters: What steps is your company taking to reduce power in the chips, systems, software that you produce. Has it become a primary design consideration?

Author

banwidth come into play here

 

Author

Our company is a financial processor, so we interact w/ POS systems, mobile pay, etc. all the way to banks and card associations.  In between there, it's all about the data, fraud risk, integrity, compliance, legal issues, marketing, data mining, and oh yes......taps by gov'ts.

Author

We both create sensor data and then process the terabytes of stored data off-line (RADAR application).

 

Author

audio stucked... refreshed than ok

Author

We create the devices that create data.

Author

We are a user of data that is created during system tests from sensors, meters, scopes, etc.

Author

our company largely creates data by selling sensors.  unfortunately, few of them are digitally networked.  most output data via a 4-20 mA current loop output

Author

We collect data from casino gaming machines for accounting and performance analysis.

Author

We make the technology that automates your plant and we can provide terabytes of data about your plant.

Author

We cover the spectrum.  Generating, transporting, analyzing, and storing the data.

Author

to the chatters: How does you company fit into this. Is it a company that will primarily create data, such as being a maker of sensors, A user of data in that you extract value from a data source, or an infrastructure provider that produces the tools that enable either of the other two?

Author

I'm an infrastructure provider/integrator.

 

Good afternoon, everyone

Author

Hi, Brian   From Doral, Miami

Sorry

Author

Can you Brits opt out of the ubiquitous cameras in Briton? If its bad for private industry to do it, it's also bad for the government to do it to its citizens!

Author

Of interest also is how diffent parts of the world consider who owns the data.  Business vs. gov't vs. individuals.  

Author

What slide are we on?  Thanks.

 

Author

100%   Without data, we don't have a business.  We generate and consume large quantities of data.

Author

The data I handle is related to the process being controled which is of value only to those controling the process at the moment. It has no frame of reference to anyone who is not familiar with the equipment.

Test data on a prototype system being developed is very important to help improve the design.

Author

What percentage of your companies value though?

 

Author

It is very valuable, specially when dealing costomers personal information.

 

Author

Data is paramount to the business.

Author

to our chatters: How valuable do you think data is? Think about your company. What percentage of your value is tied to information, knowledge that your company holds. Take a guess? What percentage would you place on it?

Author

Audio is up, here we go!!
