Why we shouldn’t let AI write for us

Machines are getting better at writing. They can finish our sentences. They can reply to our emails. They can write news reports and even novels. But just because they can doesn’t mean they should.Artificial intelligence (AI) is launching a technology revolution that will transform business over the next decade. The most powerful use for AI may be in the area of decision support, where algorithms feed us streams of knowledge and advice as we go about our work. Gartner says AI augmentation alone will create $2.9 trillion (with a “t”) in business value in 2021.To read this article in full, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Microsoft’s Chromium Edge Browser moves to beta: Who knew a browser could be exciting again?

 [Disclosure: Microsoft is a client of the author.]The new version of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium is moving to beta. It’s hard to look at this new and innovative browser and not think back on Internet Explorer. Times were very different back then, and IE was Microsoft’s answer to Netscape Navigator, the first dominant browser. Microsoft rode IE to almost 100% market share before they pulled resources from it, and it dropped largely into obscurity.This slide was a painful lesson to watch, but the pain Microsoft experienced effectively saved the company. It also eventually set up the success they are having in the cloud today with Azure, and made them a much better company.To read this article in full, please click here

Android 10 and the end of whimsy

When I first heard about Google's plan to ditch the Android dessert naming system, my reaction was pretty minimal.After all, the name of an Android version doesn't really mean that much. It's what's inside the Pie, the Oreo, the Ice Cream Sandwich that counts. So Android Q won't be Quindim, Quince, or Queen of Puddings (sigh — if only). It'll simply be "Android 10" instead. So what?To read this article in full, please click here

3 reasons Apple’s iPhone 11 will exceed (muted) expectations

If the portents prove positive, Apple’s next edition iPhone 11 will be announced September 10.Here are three (3) reasons I think it will exceed expectations.5G doesn’t matter yet It really doesn’t.

BrandPost: Preventing Office 365 Data Loss Surprises

Microsoft Office 365 is an indispensable tool for modern, digital businesses. For mid-sized companies in particular, many of their most important business processes depend on the various tools within Office 365. For this reason, protecting and backing up data that resides in Excel, Word, SharePoint, Planner, Outlook, Teams, and other applications that are part of Office 365 are critical. Data losses from within Office 365 can be costly and significantly impact productivity.Although Microsoft has provided some protection for that data, there are still many vulnerabilities. Perhaps the most common cause of data loss is accidental deletion or overwriting of files. The Recycle Bin holds deleted documents for only a short period of time.  If the problem is recognized quickly, that data will be gone permanently. Malicious deletion is another problem that isn’t adequately addressed by standard Microsoft data protection.To read this article in full, please click here
