In my last blog about data flow and the development of ‘autonomous vehicles’, I argued that,
“...while the dream of a safer, and more efficient, road transportation system is worthy, it won’t be happening on a large-scale anytime soon...
...computers aren’t yet intelligent enough to reliably make safe, on-time decisions about everyday driving…

For some years now, technologists have been developing ‘autonomous vehicles’ - cars which will be driven by computers, without direct human intervention.
Google, for example, is a pioneer in the industry. In road trials, the company’s computer controlled cars have racked up 200,000 miles without any accidents.
Real-time flows of data will be critical to the operation of such vehicles in a…Continue

Chateau Margaux 1983 is one of the many things I love about France.

Formula 1 racing is one of my favourite sports.
From a technical standpoint, what is really interesting about F1 is how data intensive the industry has become during the last 10 or so years.
Today, the driver, engineers and car never stop communicating with one another. Everything the driver does with the car on the track, in testing or during a race, is monitored and recorded using telemetry: a data transfer system that allows remote measurement and…Continue

I was posed an interesting question over the weekend.
The question was about OBASHI and Business and IT Alignment (BITA):
