The benefits of Software Defined Everything (SDE) – in which a physical infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as services on demand – will change the way we design, build, and test new applications. In a virtual environment, operational costs drop precipitously as the pace of innovation accelerates. Containerization – a way to virtually run separate […] […]

It’s hard to know for certain what the U.S. economy will look like in 10 years’ time, much less what the work day will look like. One thing we do know: As younger generations enter the workforce, they will bring new habits, technology, conventions, and expectations that will likely transform business and government. With the […] […]

Artificial intelligence (AI) machines can out-think humans when it comes to a lot of complex, fine-grained tasks, such as detecting signs of cancer more accurately than doctors can, or finding exoplanets based on “dimming effect” data from distant solar systems. But what they don’t have is good old common sense, the ability to apply its knowledge, and the experience to various tasks humans can do from childhood.

Before we can have a rational discussion about artificial intelligence (AI), we should probably cut through the hysteria surrounding it. Contrary to popular opinion, we’re not talking about machines that are going to rise up, steal our jobs, and render humans obsolete.

Our lives are very different today than they were even 15 years ago. We walk around with computers in our pockets and do things like share our locations with loved ones via satellite technology. Still, the changes we’ve experienced so far are nothing compared to the tech tidal wave that’s approaching.

Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of the United States Strategic Command, told House members today that he would be happy to give over the Air Force’s role in providing “situational space awareness (SSA)” services which involve keeping track of many thousands of pieces of orbital debris that have the potential to disrupt satellites and the communications and other critical services they provide.

The Department of Energy plans to roll out an enterprise risk management framework that would provide cybersecurity data about the agency in one place and enable better information sharing between departments.
“The enemy isn’t a hacker in the basement,” said Micah Czigan, director of the Integrated Joint Cybersecurity Coordination Center for DOE. “The enemy is a world power nation-state.”

In order for agencies to meet Data Center Optimization Initiative requirements, many are choosing Data Center Infrastructure Management Solutions to help them visualize what’s going on inside their data centers. “We were looking at optimization before DCOI and DCIM was cool,” said Pruitt Hall, project manager for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s DCIM implementation.
