Community Mainframe

Join Rocket CEO Andy Youniss on 11/12 To Discuss Diversity in the Mainframe Community

CEOs and General Managers are investing in diversity; why? And how can we know more about what companies are doing? As companies in the mainframe and other industries prioritize diversity, inclusion and equity programs, allocate resources and approve initiatives, we believe our results will be collectively better and faster if we work together—and talk openly […]

Legacy Systems: The Bottom-Line Advantage

In the technology world, you can’t go more than 10 minutes without someone using the word “disruptive.” But you can’t go more than 30 seconds without hearing the word “new.” Absolutely everything in hardware and software is about novelty, and yesterday’s innovation is tomorrow’s doorstop. That 40MB hard drive you bought for $3000 is literally […]

Five things from yesteryear that have still “got it”

Nostalgia, or “a sentimental longing or wistful affection for a period in the past,” is a common occurrence in adulthood and has never been as visible as it is today. Think about hipster-culture—bringing back old game consoles like the Nintendo 64, and shunning Spotify in favor of vinyl (it just sounds better). While initially, users […]

Rocket.Build: Around the World in 15 Days

  In the 19th century a commonly heard phrase was, “the sun never sets on the British Empire.” It was a true statement: at any given time, it was daytime somewhere in territories controlled by Queen Victoria. But it wasn’t an original concept: the phrase was previously applied to the Spanish empire, and historians have […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: don’t be afraid of the AI boogeyman

I’ve been lucky enough to sit in on a number of interesting conversations and presentations this week at World of Watson that deal with the underpinnings of cognitive technology–most notable, artificial intelligence (AI for short). And interestingly, something that came up in each of those conversations was the usual Hollywood portrayal of AI as the […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: could a cognitive system have written this for me?

A lot of the talk this week focuses on how AI and cognitive systems can help extend our abilities in healthcare, or factories, or public infrastructure. But these systems also have potential applications for non-physical pursuits. For example, marketing. In a session I attended yesterday, the speaker noted that marketers only have access to 20% […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: the cognitive Internet of Things (IoT)

Artificial intelligence and cognitive computing have only recently become a reality for the mass market due to a combination of two things–increased, low-cost computing power and an explosion of data. If you’ve been keeping up with the trends over the past five years, it’s not hard to guess where much of that data is coming […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: Open Source Cognitive Computing? Yup.

One of the barriers to entry for any new technology is entropy. Simply put, people are far too busy to take time out of their busy lives to learn new languages and new skills unless they have a compelling reason to do so. And it’s not just about staying up to speed on the latest […]
