“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” — Albert Einstein Let’s face it.  If something can go wrong, there is a good chance that it will go wrong.  Maybe not today and maybe not tomorrow, but no matter how many precautions that might be put into place, Murphy […]

I recently sat down with my friend and partner in technology, Mark Fletcher (Fletch), to talk about artificial intelligence and natural language processing.  I hope you enjoy hearing what we had to say about what might be the most exciting and revolutionary technology of our time.

This is cool. I wasn’t aware that I was the subject of Avaya’s latest podcast.

Believing is seeing and seeing is believing — Tom Hanks Last week in Watson, Come Here – I Want to See You, I introduced my readers to many of the functionality delivered by IBM Watson.  I explained how Watson can perform language detection, language translation, and language analysis.  I also wrote of how Watson Conversations […]

My fellow blogger, Dave Michels of Talking Pointz, did a nice write-up in Network World about the work I have been doing with IoT and communications workflows.  Please take a look! Arrow Electronics Gives IoT a Voice, Connects Devices to Communications Tools  

Last week I introduced No Jitter readers to Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Facebook’s free NLP service, wit.ai.  I wrote about intents and entities and how they work together to convert human language into actionable components.  If you are like me, though, you only learn so much from reading.  You need to see concepts in […]

I would venture to guess that most people had their first encounter with natural language programming (NLP) when Apple added Siri to the iPhone.  Starting with iPhone 4S, you could ask “her” simple questions such as “Who was the 12th president of the United States?” (Zachary Taylor) and “Will you marry me?” (We hardly know […]

Beth Schultz of No Jitter did a great job summarizing our recent podcast about IoT and communications workflows.  Take a look *and* a listen. No Jitter On Air:  Getting IoT Into The Communications Mix

I’ve been awfully quiet lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working…and working hard.  For the last few months, I have been immersed in writing software for my company’s IoT (Internet of Things) platform.  Additionally, I’ve branched out into integrating with other cloud services such as ServiceNow. Last week, I sat down (virtually) with […]
