For the past four years, my esteemed colleague Jeff Fried has posted a blog on his technology predictions for the following year. In that blog, he always started with a review of his predictions from the previous year, in a sort of scorecard of his ESP abilities. Now that we are in March (where did […]
Towards the end of 2018, the second edition of Deloitte’s “State of AI in the Enterprise” was released. The full report is well worth the time to read, but after we closed out 2018, I couldn’t get one section of the report out of my mind. Specifically, the first of their three core findings that […]
Forbes recently posted an interesting article on nine disruptive tech breakthroughs in 2018. I found it to be a good read and saw some real parallels within the search industry. I’ve shared my thoughts on these points below. The full article can be found here, and I’ve included excerpts from each of their disruptors.

Way back in the middle of 2017, my colleague Jeff Fried participated in an exclusive member webinar with the Cognitive Computing Consortium on Leaders in Cognitive. (You can listen to it here). He discussed the topic of, “The Race is On: Comparing Google and Microsoft’s Cognitive Services.” I know… how is the middle of 2017 […]
Don’t you just hate it when you cannot find the content you are looking for? You know that you have relevant content, but either you can’t remember where it is, or you know where it is, but there is so much content that it will take ages to look at every file to find what […]
New Year’s predictions are a longstanding tradition, dating at least back to the 16th century French seer Nostradamus. Personally, I started only four years ago, and my predictions focus around search, digital workplaces, and market dynamics involving Microsoft. I intend for these predictions to be much more useful, informative, and accurate than Nostradamus’ (a low […]
You hear about AI, machine learning, and cognitive services from every direction these days. Personally, I’ve been getting deep into the cognitive services provided by Microsoft and Google. Over the last year these have expanded enormously, and the pace of development is only increasing.
