The idea of load balancing is well defined in the IT world: A network device accepts traffic on behalf ofa group of servers, and distributes that traffic according to load balancing algorithms and the availabilityof the services that the servers provide. From network administrators to server administrators to applicationdevelopers, this is a generally well understood concept.
The NSA’s Information Assurance Directorate left many people scratching their heads in the winter
of 2015. The directive instructed those that follow its guidelines to postpone moving from RSA
cryptography to elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) if they hadn’t already done so.
“For those partners and vendors that have not yet made the transition to Suite B elliptic curve
algorithms, we recommend not making a significant expenditure to do so at this point but instead to
prepare for the upcoming quantum-resistant algorithm transition.”
The timing of the announcement was curious. Many in the crypto community wondered if there had been
a quantum computing breakthrough significant enough to warrant the NSA’s concern. A likely candidate
for such a breakthrough came from the University of New South Wales, Australia, where researchers
announced that they’d achieved quantum effects in silicon, which would be a massive jump forward for

Compression algorithms reduce the number of bits needed to represent a set of data—the higher the compression ratio, the more space this particular data reduction technique saves. During our OLTP test, the Unity array achieved a compression ratio of 3.2-to-1 on the database volumes, whereas the 3PAR array averaged a 1.3-to-1 ratio. In our data mart loading test, the 3PAR achieved a ratio of 1.4-to-1 on the database volumes, whereas the Unity array got 1.3 to 1.
Predictive analytics have been used by different industries for years to solve difficult problems that range from detecting credit card fraud to determining patient risk levels for medical conditions. It combines data mining and machine-learning technologies to create statistical models based on historical data. It then uses these models to predict future events. Extracting the power from the data requires powerful algorithms behind predictive analytics.

The misuse or takeover of privileged accounts constitutes the most common source of breaches today. CA Threat Analytics for PAM provides a continuous, intelligent monitoring capability that helps enterprises detect and stop hackers and malicious insiders before they cause damage.
The software integrates a powerful set of user behavior analytics and machine learning algorithms with the trusted controls provided by CA Privileged Access Manager (CA PAM). The result is a solution that continuously analyzes the activity of individual users, accurately detects malicious and high-risk activities and automatically triggers mitigating controls to limit damage to the enterprise.
Interest in machine learning has exploded over the past decade. You see machine learning in computer science programs, industry conferences, and the Wall Street Journal almost daily. For all the talk about machine learning, many conflate what it can do with what they wish it could do. Fundamentally, machine learning is using algorithms to extract information from raw data and represent it in some type of model. We use this model to infer things about other data we have not yet modeled. Neural networks are one type of model for machine learning; they have been around

Monetate Intelligent Recommendations is the only solution that gives merchandisers & digital marketers the power to show contextually relevant product recommendations without burdening IT resources.
Using manually curated or algorithmically-driven recommendations, marketers can easily support even the most complex product catalogs. Our solution filters recommendations based on customer attributes (e.g. shirt size), longitudinal behaviours (e.g. browsing behaviour), and situational context (e.g. product inventory at local stores). Best of all, an orchestration layer intelligently selects which algorithms and which filters to apply in any given situation, for any particular individual.

Wikibon conducted in-depth interviews with organizations that had achieved Big Data success and high rates of returns. These interviews determined an important generality: that Big Data winners focused on operationalizing and automating their Big Data projects. They used Inline Analytics to drive algorithms that directly connected to and facilitated automatic change in the operational systems-of-record. These algorithms were usually developed and supported by data tables derived using Deep Data Analytics from Big Data Hadoop systems and/or data warehouses. Instead of focusing on enlightening the few with pretty historical graphs, successful players focused on changing the operational systems for everybody and managed the feedback and improvement process from the company as a whole.
Generate rich virtual data that covers the full range of possible scenarios and provide the unconstrained access to environments needed to deliver rigorously tested applications on time and within budget. Model complex live system data and apply automated rule-learning algorithms to pay off technical debt and uncover in depth understanding of composite applications, while exposing virtual data to distributed teams on demand and avoiding testing bottlenecks.

In 2017, review sources proliferated, consumers became more savvy about the validity of online reviews, and the position of Chief Experience Officer started to gain traction among locationbased organizations. ORM and SEO became increasingly intertwined as Google refined its search algorithms with a strong emphasis on reviews and star ratings.
Adobe automates the process of turning insights into action by connecting Adobe Analytics to other solutions in Adobe Experience Cloud, including Adobe Target and Adobe Audience Manager. Four features make this possible:
• Anomaly detection. The technology automatically analyzes trends and determines if they are statistically significant — in milliseconds.
• Analyze play button. With analytics, you can take insights and connect them to your email, DMP, and personalization platform in seconds.
• Intelligent alert. A built-in alerting system sends an SMS text or email when it detects an anomaly. There are also predictive algorithms that help you forecast how often the alert is likely to trigger. You can set these to only notify you of the most important changes.
• Intelligent recommendations. It’s simply impossible to manually create every alert you might need, so Adobe is building machine learning directly into analytics to analyze users’ behaviors. Like a virtual data assistant, it co

In 2017, review sources proliferated, consumers became more savvy about the validity of online
reviews, and the position of Chief Experience Officer started to gain traction among locationbased
organizations. ORM and SEO became increasingly intertwined as Google refined its search
algorithms with a strong emphasis on reviews and star ratings.
This year, expect to see these four trends move to the forefront:
1) Google will extend its dominance in online review volume and consumer exposure, eclipsing all
other specialty sites.
2) SEO will be reinvented as user-generated reviews weigh more heavily in search rankings.
3) The voice of the customer will no longer be siloed across disconnected categories.
4) Consumer feedback from reviews and social media will drive operational improvements.
Advances in deep neural networks have ignited a new wave of algorithms and tools for data scientists to tap into their data with artificial intelligence (AI). With improved algorithms, larger data sets, and frameworks such as TensorFlow, data scientists are tackling new use cases like autonomous driving vehicles and natural language processing.
