AI Is About To Go Mainstream And Reshape The Workplace Michael Yamnitsky TechCrunch 20150929
(Michael Yamnitsky 20150929)
Much like the evolution of systems design, IT-enabled process change ebbs and flows over time. We see this in history as each technology revolution brings with it a refactoring of business operations.

With the rise of client/server computing in the 1980s, and the introduction of database servers and visual development tools like PowerBuilder, “business process re-engineering” became all the craze during the 1990s.

By 1993, 60 percent of the Fortune 500 developed IT systems to automate mundane tasks like insurance claims processing or AP invoice/purchase order reconciliation, channeling the mandate of technology-led business transformation in Michael Hammer’s infamous 1990 HBR article, “Don’t Automate, Obliterate.”
Twenty-odd years later, we’re about to see another “flow” of transformation thanks to resurgent interest in artificial intelligence and the emergence of the AI-powered business application. What’s different this time around is the transformation will be driven bottom up by rank-and-file employees, making it potentially more disruptive than any “flow” of process change that came before.

Mobile’s Hierarchy of Needs
Ben Martin
Director, International Marketing Insights
The concept of ‘mobile first’ is no longer exclusive to technology-focused businesses and consumers, but is the default position for a growing number of internet users, who now consider smartphones and tablets essential to their daily lives.

In this report, we examine key mobile behaviours that have propelled it to a primary platform, using 9 global markets (USA, Canada, UK, Spain, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, China and Indonesia) to demonstrate pockets of intense usage within a mobile hierarchy of needs.

Key topics covered in this report include:

Mobile devices and apps’ dominant share of total digital time
How demographics behave differently in mobile consumption and how they divide time and activities between platforms
Which aspects of key content categories receive especially ‘mobile first’ behaviours, including Retail, Social Networking, News, Banking and Travel
Audiences and engagement for key global apps
How international markets have evolved mobile usage based on local needs (e.g. the dominance of messaging apps outside the US)
Challenges and opportunities for the continued growth of mobile platforms

Burger King ‘O.K. Google’ Ad Doesn’t Seem O.K. With Google - The New York Times
Google appeared to stymie a marketing stunt on Wednesday by Burger King, which had introduced a television ad intended to prompt voice-activated Google devices to describe its burgers.

A video from a Burger King marketing agency showed the plan in action: “You’re watching a 15-second Burger King ad, which is unfortunately not enough time to explain all the fresh ingredients in the Whopper sandwich,” the actor in the commercial said. “But I got an idea. O.K. Google, what is the Whopper burger?”

Prompted by the phrase “O.K. Google,” the Google Home device beside the TV in the video lit up, searched the phrase on Wikipedia and stated the ingredients.

But within hours of the ad’s release — and humorous edits to the Whopper Wikipedia page by mischievous users — tests from The Verge and BuzzFeed showed that the commercial had stopped activating the device.

Innovation Insight for Digital Experience Monitoring, Gartner Report, Oct. 14.2016
Analyst(s): Will Cappelli
Digital experience monitoring technologies enable I&O leaders to observe and analyze the interactions between digital agents, both as individuals and communities, and applications, services or digital business processes.

Key Findings

Classical end user experience monitoring (EUEM) technologies that focus on availability, response time and transaction completion rates at the interface between a single user and an application execution instance are proving insufficient in assessing how users regard application or service quality.

Strategic investments in digital experience monitoring (DEM) platforms are required in order for I&O to support digital business initiatives.

To date, the majority of I&O's investments in DEM technologies have been tactical and/or isolated in nature, focused on single applications and, hence, limiting their potential.

Most I&O teams do not yet have the skills or experience needed to work effectively with DEM platforms.
