Lack of Employee Input & Training Puts Technology and Automation ROI at Risk
SEATTLE, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Seattle companies continue to invest heavily in technologies such as automation, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) to reinvent how work is done. But as companies in the Seattle area increasingly deploy new technologies, they may miss major opportunities to get the most out of their investments because of a missing critical factor – employee engagement.
According to a new survey of Seattle workers by Eagle Hill Consulting, only 29 percent say that their company invests in the right technologies to support them. And just 38 percent agree that technology change has had a positive impact on the organization.
Content Platform Provider Supports eReader capabilities for Cengage Unlimited’s library of 14,000 eTextbooks
Gutenberg Technology (GT), provider of the premier end-to-end content management platform, today announced its partnership with Cengage, an education and technology company and the largest US-based provider of teaching and learning materials for higher education, to bring eTextbooks and study tools to millions of college students across the U.S. GT’s publishing platform, has aided Cengage in rapidly bringing its content library to market, hosting more than 14,000 eTextbooks that are available to Cengage subscribers.

Aspen Hybrid Models™ and Embedded AI Capabilities Will Change How Process Industries Achieve Goals for Improved Safety, Environmental Impact, Reliability and Profitability
Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:AZPN), a global leader in asset optimization software, today announced the general availability of the aspenONE® V12 software release, which embeds artificial intelligence (AI) across the portfolio, and uses the cloud for delivery of enterprise-wide analytics and insights for increased safety, sustainability, and improved margins. AspenTech’s Industrial AI solutions democratize the application of AI where it can deliver most value and is a vital step towards the Self-Optimizing Plant.
“Aspen Hybrid Models™ are a major advance in the field of chemical engineering. Hybrid models are a major step forward in bringing together AspenTech’s process models and machine learning and are a game changer in process engineering and plant improvement,” said Dr. Karuna Potdar, Vice President, Technology Centre of Excellence, Reliance Industries Limited.
A machine learning technique rapidly rediscovered rules governing catalysts that took humans years of difficult calculations to reveal — and even explained a deviation. The University of Michigan team that developed the technique believes other researchers will be able to use it to make faster progress in designing materials for a variety of purposes.
“This opens a new door, not just in understanding catalysis, but also potentially for extracting knowledge about superconductors, enzymes, thermoelectrics, and photovoltaics,” said Bryan Goldsmith, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, who co-led the work with Suljo Linic, a professor of chemical engineering.
The key to all of these materials is how their electrons behave. Researchers would like to use machine learning techniques to develop recipes for the material properties that they want. For superconductors, the electrons must move without resistance through the material. Enzymes and catalysts need to broker exchanges of electrons, enabling new medicines
E-commerce tech company continues to invest in strengthening the executive team with appointment of newCTO, Corey Bertram
NEW YORK, Sept. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Rokt, the global leader in e-commerce marketing technology, has been actively expanding its leadership team – and today announced that Corey Bertram has joined the executive team as Chief Technology Officer. Bertram brings to the team deep technical experience – with a background in chaos engineering, infrastructure, and software architecture- as well as a new energy to propel Rokt into its next phase of growth.
Prior to Rokt, Corey oversaw Datadog’s Infrastructure & SRE teams through its extensive multi-cloud growth in its lead-up to IPO. Bertram also led the engineering division of Timshel, building the underlying platform technology for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. In his time at Netflix, Bertram oversaw the expansion of the
VMware and Nvidia are integrating the latter’s artificial intelligence applications for unified management of apps, security and data processing unit accelerators.
The partnership secures Nvidia’s role in hybrid clouds as VMware outlined an architecture that incorporates data processing units (DPUs) in the data center, cloud and edge. Specifically, AI software on Nvidia’s NGC hub will be integrated into VMware vSphere, Cloud Foundation and Tanzu.
Both companies said the bet was that the integration would be able to speed up AI adoption in enterprises.
Krish Prasad, general manager of VMware’s cloud platform business, said “AI workloads no longer need any kind of specialized set up based on bare metal or specialized tools to run it.”
VMware and Nvidia also said they will partner on Project Monterey to create an architecture based on SmartNIC technology and include Nvidia’s programmable BlueField-2 DPU to support machine learning and data-focused apps.
Increased competition among Apple’s suppliers for mini-LED display chips will accelerate the company’s adoption of the advanced technology in its iPad and MacBook lineups, according to a new research note from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo seen by MacRumors.
Kuo says that while Epistar had been predicted to be the exclusive supplier of mini-LED chips for Apple products in 2021, Sanan Optoelectronics has experienced better than expected development on the technology and will also begin supplying Apple in 2021 rather than the previously estimated timeframe of 2022.
The increased supply capacity and competition among suppliers will reportedly drive Apple’s cost for mini-LED display dies from $75–$85 down to around $45. As a result, Kuo expects that mini-LED technology will appear in roughly 30–40% of iPad shipments and 20–30% of MacBook shipments in 2021, up from previous estimates of 10–20% shipment share for both product lines.
