VR Business Applications: Branding with VR

Oct 12, 2018 10:45:44 AM by Michael Volkmann

Virtual reality has a truly astounding trajectory. The VR hardware and software market has already tripled in size in only two years. In a few short years, Statista predicts that the market size for virtual reality software and hardware will expand to over $40 billion.

Only a decade ago, virtual reality seemed like a distant dream. Now it seems that VR is more than an outlet for escapism, entertainment, and media. It seems VR is poised to disrupt all sorts of business practices and even entire industries. For instance, healthcare, education, and journalism are experimenting with VR and related technologies.

[Podcast] Artificial Intelligence Training for Information Professionals

Oct 10, 2018 11:00:00 AM by Sean McGauley

For me, "Artificial Intelligence" used to conjure up images of the latest Sci-Fi movie or things like the talking car KITT from the 80's TV show Knight Rider. It wasn't until fairly recently that I began to see this shift from Sci-Fi movie topic to business value.

Can Machine Learning Defeat the Venerable Structured Template?

Oct 9, 2018 10:30:00 AM by Greg Council

The venerable template allows structured form data to be accurately extracted. In the document capture industry, the concept of templates where you specify the location of each data element is a tried-and-true strategy for structured forms. If the form is standardized, giving the software the precise place to look for data will almost always result in better performance over alternatives such as rules-based approaches using keywords or patterns. Even with unstructured data such as on invoices, we find that many organizations have opted for a template approach after finding that more flexible, rules-based approaches fall short. The result is a tremendous amount of upfront effort and a lot of maintenance.

Document Automation: Having Your Cake…

Oct 5, 2018 11:40:00 AM by Greg Council

Having your cake and eating it, too, is a proverb that’s almost 500 years old, which means you cannot have two incompatible things at the same time.

So many examples of situations exist where you face two mutually exclusive options. Let’s take document capture. Document capture software is designed to automate document-oriented tasks such as sorting or extracting key data. In order to achieve that automation, you must spend time to configure the software to identify documents and reliably locate and extract that data with a high enough degree of accuracy that your staff need only be involved in verifying a small percentage of it.

[Guest Post] Infosecurity: 3 Industry Trends to Follow

Jun 21, 2018 10:30:00 AM by Tanya Brooks

In light of recent events, we can all agree that information security has been criminally overlooked on some major fronts across most industries. Absolutely mind-boggling attacks on major corporations like Sony, Yahoo and Equifax have consecrated InfoSec in the most frightening way possible. It is entirely possible that InfoSec had been given the resources it needed in those conditional circumstances but, given the unmitigated damage and lack of response, it is beyond fair to say that InfoSec may not have been a high priority. The benefit, if any, of these attacks is that they cemented the need for InfoSec in all businesses of all sizes.

Clearing the Complication - Making Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Accessible and Useful

May 17, 2018 10:32:00 AM by Alan Pelz-Sharpe

These days it feels almost impossible to have a conversation with anyone involved in the world of Information Management without bringing up machine learning and artificial intelligence. Everyone is talking about it, everyone has an opinion, everyone claims to be doing it — or at least thinking about doing it. AI is part of the popular zeitgeist, entering our lives in the form of autonomous vehicles on our roads, Alexa in our homes, and a burgeoning AI arms race between rival world powers. Yet despite all the talk, no one really seems to agree on what its real impact will be. In fact, everyone seems to have a different definition for what ‘it’ even is. There are those telling us it’s nothing new and its potential is over-hyped, while others tell us that AI and Machine Learning will make us all redundant.

Truly disruptive moments occur only once in a generation. They occur when the cumulative inertia of technology innovation combines to disrupt business models. And the heart of disruption is ultimately when radical technology changes are standardized and then incorporated into new business models.

Guest Post--Will Automation Make Us More Human Centric?

Apr 17, 2018 12:05:00 PM by Tanya Brooks

Automation in the workplace is already well underway. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that up to 50% of workplace tasks could be fully automated by 2055, if not before. For employees, this can be a daunting concept, as increased automation in professional settings could lead to job loss on a mass scale.
