The corporate learning shuffle

Collective business collaboration is very different to our individual digital interaction choices: how do we leverage past generations of training technologies to align with new opportunities to define and formalize the best ways to work together, and which CxO group should be responsible for this, or should this be a cross enterprise initiative?

Bristol University demos brightest quantum optics

University of Bristol researchers, in collaboration with colleagues at the Universities of Osaka and Hokkaido in Japan, have demonstrated a quantum logic gate - a controlled-NOT or CNOT gate - that was first proposed a decade ago.Back in 2001, this four-photon design opened up the possibility of optical quantum computing.

Trust Factor 10

I'm arranging some quid pro quo work at the moment, dog training for web site design (I'm not sure if the Inland Revenue look kindly upon bartering, as it does cut them out of the loop!).

The enterprise implications of Google Wave

Google announced their forthcoming service known as Wave this week to widespread coverage in both the press and blogosphere. Created by many of the same team members that created the highly successful Google Maps, the preview of the service itself on Thursday was quite compelling, resulting in a rare standing ovation at a tech conference according to ZDNet’s own Sam Diaz. Its egalitarian and federation-friendly design is intended to create an entire open ecosystem for communication and collaboration that Google is not-so-modestly touting as the reinvention of digital interaction circa 2009.

Can robots become our 'phriends'?

A friendly collaboration between humans and robots is not always easy. Either robots work efficiently and far from humans in controlled environments, or they're equipped with lots of sensors to work along humans and not harm them. Now, a EU-funded project, Phriends -- short for 'Physical Human-Robot Interaction: DepENDability and Safety' -- has started to force robots to respect Asimov's laws. In a nutshell, these laws say that robots cannot cause harm to humans and that they have to obey us. This 3-year project will end next year and has received € 2.16 million from the EU. The technology developed for the Phriends project will be used in industrial robots, but also in sports training and physical rehabilitation. But read more...

Interview: HP's BTO chief Ben Horowitz on how application lifecycles and data center operations can find common ground

Through managed requirements collaboration and the use of "contracts" between the designers, testers, business leaders and IT operators, application lifecycle optimization has arrived, says Horowitz. Bringing more input and visibility into applications design, test and refinement, in a managed fashion, allows applications to better meet business goals, while also providing the data center operators better means to host those applications efficiently with high availability, he says.

IT search and SCM search may together bridge the design time-run time divide

Productivity improvements in software development and deployment strategies will ultimately have to reckon with the lingering lack of feedback between design time and run time.Software is still a hand-off affair, with developed applications getting tossed into production with little collaboration between the builders and the operators -- before or after the hand-off.
