We are overwhelmed by a storm of information, incitements and new labels on a daily basis. This is happening so loudly that the risk is the information becomes noise, becoming a kind of background noise that prevents us from deepening and focusing on what really deserves our attention. b.digital was born to support Customers in clarifying how to catch the opportunities of this historical moment, selecting the most appropriate technologies and adopting them according to their view: starting from what has a real impact on their own business. We decided to start from two technological trends that we feel will both have great impact and that already have a maturity level able to build value for our Customers.
The human brain is characterized by a series of peculiar capabilities, very difficult to be replicated until today : for example the ability to correlate and adapt the analysis of multiple variable types, linked to the ability to work on unstructured data and to recognize trends and patterns to extrapolate high level insights and forecasting the system behaviour.
The human mind has developed innovative and unique tools that have allowed our evolution from the matter of language with all its nuances of intent and meaning, to the extraordinary ability to build knowledge by learning and adapting continuously from previous experience and from the outside context.
The Cognitive technologies, or Artificial Intelligence, has reached a maturity level that is making possible to replicate at least some parts of those capabilities.
And technology makes possible to scale it in orders of magnitude compared to human capabilities, both in terms of number and complexity of the data involved, than in terms of speed and continuity of the analysis.
We believe this evolution is an extraordinary opportunity to support our Customers in the decisions that are the core of their own business.
To build a more accurate picture, in shorter times, keeping the vision of the whole landscape and the consistency with the strategic goals.
The BigData theme is just one face of the coin and it’s important to link it to the Cognitive Analysis topic to provide an objective outcome.
It is in order to be able to exploit and to gather real value from the great amount of data available today, but because of their numerousness and complexity, they are likely to be an obstacle to the real understanding of the phenomena they represent.
This technology is the key to make stronger decisions, highly consistent and in shorter time, making it possible to quickly predict and anticipate the evolution of the context.
That is why we like #AI standing for Augmented Intelligence.
Technology enhancing human intelligence.
Technology has evolved the potential of peripheral devices, whether they are sensors or actuators, both in terms of connectivity (connected device) and in terms of computing capacity (smart devices).
Internet of Things (IoT) it is meant to represent the network of automatic interoperability between smart and distributed objects.
The wide scope and the multiple fields in which the potential of this paradigm is clear and evident, ranging from home automation to Industrial Automation, but also impacting Retail, Logistics and Tracking, Fashion and Food.
The EU, and specifically Italy, has a legacy of knowledge and experience in the field of Manufacturing. Our industrial sector is represented by companies that have been able to compete and win on the international markets in many areas, from food to packaging, from robotics to fashion, leveraging innovation and technology.
The ability to make things, combined with a clear strategic vision, has created a very successful ecosystem in Italy, despite the handicaps in infrastructures and policies that historically characterize Italian market compared to many direct competitor in other Countries.
Industry 4.0 is an extraordinary historical opportunity.
The convergence between multiple innovative technologies is providing the companies an unprecedented competitive leverage, even more powerful when used by those companies able to be flexible and quickly adapt in order to take full advantage of this opportunity.
That is why SMEs can make the most out of this historic phase, leveraging innovation incentive policies and burning down the steps to accelerate in the digital transformation journey.
The National Plan for Industry 4.0 offers a great start and stimulus from this point of view and we consider it a historic opportunity for the Country.
That is why we want to be alongside those companies to help them in better understanding the technological trends and to support them in designing the transformation path, starting from the items and the benefits offered by Industry 4.0 Plan.
Automatic interoperability between smart distributed objects.
