@riskybusiness @andrewwhiteau @Coles Coincidentally, I was replacing one whose gas valve seemed to me getting dodgy. So, yeah, there’s that.

via TweetDeck in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness @andrewwhiteau @Coles I’d been using one in one of the buildings here at @bunjaree, and was going to buy a replacement today.

via TweetDeck in reply to riskybusiness

My new, additional mission today, therefore, is to figure out what I’m going to cook on instead, at least until the stove is plumbed in.

So my long-running irritation about the gas valve operation on that Gasmate PC1070 butane cooker is warranted. I joked about explosions too.

The Deloitte report we just discussed, “Tech Trends 2015: The fusion of business and IT” www2.deloitte.com/au/en/pages/te…

via TweetDeck

That’s the briefing done. A link to the report we were discussing will be available within the next hour.

via TweetDeck

RT @jonoabroad: @stilgherrian *sigh* telling the fucking time? [That’s a watch app, nor a smartwatch app. ]

via TweetDeck

On quantum computing, no evidence yet that someone has broken all the encryption, so that’s a low probability.

via TweetDeck

RT @yewenyi: Watches are cool and stylish. Glasses are nerdy. [Exactly the point. ]

via TweetDeck

“I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see mass adoption [of smartwatches] this year, but it’d take just one killer app.”

via TweetDeck

The advantage of smartwatches over Google Glass etc is that it fits into an existing lifestyle thing.

via TweetDeck

“We’re fairly confident that smartwatches will be successful. We’re not so sure about the timeframe.”

MT @JohnDobbin: Chaotic systems are unpredictable. I predict vast sums of money wasted [on this automation]. [Agreed. ]

His discussion then went to four related issues, which I didn’t note in detail ‘cos my phone rang.

Robert Hillard says that while we’ll automate everything we can, we’re not as good as we think we are as doing this automation.

So, what happens when even “cheap people” in the developing world are outpriced by automation?

chris23 now wire them together… MT @stilgherrian: what Deloitte thinks will be the massive transforming changes in 2015 pic.twitter.com/wfxVQDlexm

via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 10:54 AM, Mar 12th, 2015 via TweetDeck)

Deloitte is saying that EVERY one of these tech conversations needs to include a discussion about cyber security and risk aspects.

via TweetDeck

“Additive manufacturing” is the industrial end of what is referred to as 3D printing. Again, it’s about industrial not consumer.

via TweetDeck

Actually, it’s stronger than that. Quantum computing breakthroughs would break the entirety of encryption as we know it.

via TweetDeck

One of the things under “cyber security” there is finding factorials with quantum computing, which would break encryption systems.

via TweetDeck

“The Exponentials”, the things that Deloitte thinks will be the massive transforming changes in 2015. pic.twitter.com/vPCF18ISN5

via TweetDeck

Wave 3 is to attempt to tackle the unpredictability of humans, to make cognitive leaps and test whether they work.

via TweetDeck

The gap here, says Robert Hillard, is that it still can’t link two things that have never linked before.

via TweetDeck

Wave 1 was knowledge systems. Wave 2 is statistical big-data stuff like Siri and, I assume, Google Translate.

via TweetDeck

@SMinney It certainly sounds like that. Or “everyone is a contractor, for multiple companies”.

via TweetDeck in reply to SMinney

We’re seeing the second of three waves of artificial intelligence, says Robert Hillard. (I must explore this later.)

via TweetDeck

The phrase “the open talent economy” was just used.

via TweetDeck

“Legacy-skilled workforce is retiring, organisations are scrambling for needed skills in latest emerging, disruptive technologies”

via TweetDeck

And yet in many industries, there’s a scarcity of technical talent.

via TweetDeck

Amplified intelligence will affect white-collar jobs. Humans used to be needed to write custom responses to handle exceptions.

via TweetDeck

Companies with less-good ERP systems, but opened to partner/cust through APIs, will do better than schmick ERP that’s locked down.

@mattcen @SenatorLudlam Not Cabinet (they’re secret for 30 years, govt only), but Senate Estimates. Check The Greens MPs’ YouTube channel.

via TweetDeck in reply to mattcen

“Amid the fervour surrounding digital, analytics and cloud, it is easy to overlook advances being made in infrastructure and ops.”

via TweetDeck

My reading of that is that govt and institutions will, once more, fail to tame Startupland’s relentless digital utopianism.

via TweetDeck

There’ll be a battle between standards and commercial “need” in IoT during 2015, and commercial “practicalities” will win.

via TweetDeck

Naturally, the automation of logistics in the mining industry is mentioned at this point.

via TweetDeck

(This reinforces my view that the BIG thing about IoT is industrial uses, not daft consumer gadgets.)

via TweetDeck

Deloitte says Australia is rather advanced with ambient computing / Internet of Things (IoT) due to our advanced industrial base.
