Network owners are migrating to higher bandwidth network infrastructure, supporting speeds of 40Gbps and 100Gbps. These network links must continue to be monitored and secured as before, which involves deploying multiple tool types for both performance management and security assurance.

5G’s promise: A new heartbeat for healthcare

Article | March 8, 2020

Picture this: An ambulance rushes a seriously injured patient to the hospital. In the back, the paramedic makes a video call with doctors while sending them real-time vital signs and images of the injury. It doesn’t look good. The paramedic pulls out what looks like an oversized ski glove connected to wires and grabs an ultrasound wand that a sonographer in an office somewhere virtually steers over the patient’s injury. The sonographer then reviews the images for signs of trouble.

The tool to improve AI transparency has arrived: AI Registers

Article | March 8, 2020

Transparency, explainability and trust are big and pressing topics in AI/ML today. Nobody wants to find themselves at the receiving end of a black AI box system that makes consequential decisions (e.g., about jobs, healthcare, citizenship, etc.), especially if those decision are unfair, biased, or just plainly not in our favor. And most organizations agree that consumer trust and confidence that AI is being used ethically and transparently are key to unlocking its true potential. And while there are literally hundreds of documents describing and prescribing AI principles, frameworks and other good things, last year there was no practical tool that could help with implementing transparency. And this tool is AI registers… The Cities of Helsinki and Amsterdam jointly announce the launch of their public AI registers. The two registers were developed in collaboration with Saidot.ai, a Finnish company which specializes in “bringing transparency to consumer services” and which, to the best of my knowledge, is the only vendor in this space. The idea for the company grew from the personal frustration of its founder and CEO, Meeri Haataja, who was “seeing how important transparency of AI is for the future of each one of us, and not being able to find too many meaningful ways to act on it.”

Cisco Dreams of a 5G WAN

Article | March 8, 2020

Cisco envisions a future in which enterprise’s WANs are connected not by MPLS or broadband, but instead by high-speed, low-latency cellular networks, or what it calls the wireless WAN. Once relegated to failover, Cisco says today’s cellular networks, in particular 5G, offer high enough throughput and low enough latency to be viable alternatives to traditional wired networks. “About 10-years back everyone would say that my primary circuit from the enterprise branch was MPLS and then the higher bandwidth speed of having an internet circuit became a viable alternative,” said Shankar Ramachandran, director of product management, routing platform at Cisco, in an interview with SDxCentral.
