  • Large companies have already embraced the rise of data and analytics. An IDG study last year showed 78 percent of larger employers agree data collection and analysis have the potential to completely change the way they do business.

  • AI has the power to make decisions on our behalf and the world is getting excited. But there’s always that nagging question: Who will be the servant and who will be the master? Should we approach AI from a completely different angle? Should we actually hand over control at all and let the AI make its own decisions? Well, to an extent, in some circumstances, we’re going to have to let go of the rei...

  • The concept of ‘social TV’ first came to widespread prominence in 2010 as people embraced sharing their wild and wonderful opinions about TV experiences on social media. That same year, MIT Technology Review named the phenomenon in its top ten ‘breakthrough technologies’.

  • We’d previously written an opinion piece titled “The case for an artificially intelligent god.” This is our counterpoint to that. It’s a strange time to be a technology journalist. Somehow artificial intelligence has grown from buzzword to a religion, literally. For tech enthusiasts, it can often be more comfortable to wrap our heads around ideas like algorithms and neural networks than religion a...

  • Internet addicts in Latin America can get a “detox” treatment at Instituto Delete in Brazil, a center focused on treating cellular and internet addictions. For many of us, our cell phone is an extension of our hand.

  • With two weeks left until he turned thirty, Marc Köhlbrugge made a daunting realization — no, not that his twenties were almost over. He had failed to achieve his goal of seeing his name in Forbes’ 30 under 30 list. Not content to merely try for Fortune’s consolation prize 40 under 40 awards, he instead decided to launch his own list of who’s who, called (what else?) 100 under 100. 100 under 100 i...

  • This Thanksgiving, you’ll probably hear someone say that the chemical tryptophan that’s found in turkey makes them sleepy. Although this holiday delicacy does include an amino acid that can help you relax, it’s not the only food that contains tryptophan. Cheddar cheese has a lot more of the chemical than turkey, but you never hear your aunt saying she needs a nap after eating a grilled cheese. Acc...

Who would care about a brand-new device from a manufacturer few people had actually heard of? But out of inter...
