Security, Security, Security

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” — Henry David Thoreau During this time of unemployment, I have more free time than I care for. While I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a workaholic, I do like […]

It’s Deja Vu All Over Again

“The artist is always beginning. Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth.” – Ezra Pound Have you ever experienced deja vu? The feeling that you’ve already been someplace? I began my professional career at Northern Telecom on July 5th, 1983. That would be before most […]

Can You Really Build That With Breeze?

For me, business travel has always been a mixed bag.  I don’t like making reservations, packing, airports, airplanes, rental cars, and unfamiliar freeways, but I do enjoy meeting new people and being exposed to new and different ideas.  I also love sharing what I know (or pretend to know) with a willing audience. COVID-19 put […]

Real-Time IT Services in the Palm of Your Hand

I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying Oscar Wilde In just a few days, I get to stand in front of a crowd of Avaya Engage attendees ready to learn all about artificial intelligence and natural language processing.   While I am presenting several other sessions […]

By the Time I Get to Phoenix (And Engage 2020)

I have been going to Avaga Engage (and its previously named incarnations) for many year.  More than simply attending, I have been hosting breakout sessions at Engage.  This year is no different.  If you count “Stump the Experts” (and I do), I am presenting six breakout sessions.  While my Debugging Avaya SIP is a repeat […]

Creating Wow With Avaya OneCloud CPaaS Applications

The telephone, which interrupts the most serious conversations and cuts short the most weighty observations, has a romance of its own. – Virginia Woolf I have been writing communications software since the 1980s.  I began working with proprietary protocols such as Northern Telecom’s Meridian Link and Applications Module Link before moving to “standards” such as […]

Building Bots with Natural Language Processing

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart. — Nelson Mandela I would venture to guess that most people had their first encounter with natural language processing (NLP) when Apple added Siri to the […]

Another Demonstration of my IoT Workflow Software

Here is my friend, Thomas Roemer of Avaya, with another demonstration of IoT in action.  In this video, he is running my IoT workflow tasks (plus several others I created) from the Avaya CPaaS cloud platform (formerly known as Zang). Cool stuff!

Using AI and IoT to Orchestrate Smart Parking

I have been a “professional” programmer since 1983 (yes, I am that old) and still get a kick out of seeing how other people use my software.  In this case, Thomas Roemer from Avaya has created a smart parking solution that employs the artificial intelligence and IoT integration software I created.  It’s a cool video […]

Engage 2019

Every once in a blue moon, someone is as actually interested in what I have to say.  This happened earlier this week when I was asked about my thoughts on Engage 2019.  If you too are interested, you will find them here: Avaya Engage 2019 — Communications (and Businesses) are Evolving
