Top Tech Stories from the Weekend

A look at the Apple v Samsung Trial, Google’s response and more

Here are the top tech stories you might have missed this weekend, obviously, most stories focus around the Apple v Samsung trial.

  • Here is an intensive editorial look at Apple v Samsung trial from the editors of Engadget. More here.
  • One web developer believes that Samsung’s loss might be a $1B advertising campaign - According to this post on Phandroid, one developer believes that how the jury so closely linked Apple and Samsung products will be an endorsement in the eyes of the consumer. Because the jury thought the products were so similar, other consumers might – and just look at Samsung as the bargain version. More here.
  • The Apple Mini iPad event might be in October - it appears that Apple might be planning two events this fall, one for the iPhone 5, and another for the iPad Mini. This would be great for both Apple’s bottom line and their coffers. Also, the later they release the iPad Mini, the more developer support they can wrangle up. Via TechCrunch, more here.
  • Google responds to the lawsuit - Google’s response to the Apple/Samsung verdict was that most rulings did not apply to “core Android” capabilities. However, the ruling regarding pinch-to-zoom and more could be dangerous. Via The Verge, more here.
  • Student and Developer, Nadim Kobeissi, has found a new privacy complaint for Windows 8 - however, this article over at Ars Technica believes that he has missed the point entirely. More here.
  • Lyft is growing, and growing well - the SF based ride-sharing program is a start-up that partners people going places with those without vehicles. Using a mobile app, users can hitch rides and “tip” their drivers. Via TechCrunch, more here.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
