The next wave of communication technologies will be driven by big data and cloud, says a leading digital communications consultant.
It is not a case of big data going mainstream, says the director of RBC’s research centre, and not about the rise of a mass audience, says Mr Martin.
Mr Martin said the key to unlocking the next generation of communications lies in a combination of big and small data.
He said big data was becoming increasingly relevant, particularly in the context of large-scale manufacturing, with the rise in automation and automation-related technologies.
“We’ve got a massive amount of data, and we’re going to be able to leverage that to create something really powerful,” he said.
“But we’ve got to have a way of looking at that data and putting it together, and I think big data is one of the ways.”
In the US, for example, the government is building a big data analytics toolkit to help businesses analyse huge amounts of information.
Mr Martin says the next big wave will include cloud-based data, including on health, education and other topics.
The data from Big Data is becoming increasingly important for all sorts of industries, from agriculture to transportation.
The data from IoT is being used to make products, from car and drone systems to virtual reality.
Mr Martin says there are also “two or three emerging technologies that will be driving big data in the future”.
“One is machine learning,” he says.
“The other is machine translation, which is where we’re using the machine language and algorithms that are in there to translate a person’s voice from English to Chinese.”
I think the biggest thing that’s going to drive the next waves of communications is machine-to-machine translation.””
There are a lot of very smart people, a lot more intelligent people than there are human beings in the world, who are going to get involved in this,” he continued.
Mr Martins research group is working on technologies that can analyse vast amounts of data.”
It’s going be an extremely complex and technically difficult process to get to that point where the data is so large and so complex that it’s a challenge to analyse it in a single machine, and the machine is just going to have to be as good as the machine can be,” he added.”
But there are a whole bunch of really smart people who are interested in the next level, and it’s really interesting to me that they’re taking a leap of faith in machine learning and machine translation.
” RBC’s Digital Technology Research Centre (DTRC) was founded in 2015 by RBC co-founder and Chief Digital Officer Peter Schoettgen, who says the firm’s aim is to “make the world’s most secure digital assets”.
DTRN’s focus is on “the future of information security and digital transformation”, says the company’s website.DTRCs latest project involves a collaboration with the US National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop a new type of machine learning engine for digital security that could be used to predict a cyber attack and to predict what a particular device or website will look like.
Dynamics of security is changing, says RBC chief digital officer Mr Martin, and this is why the next step in security is digital.
That is, how to turn the data and the algorithms that we’ve created into the best tools for the security we want.” “
Now, we need to understand how to take the data that we have and use it in the most sophisticated way,” he told Next Big Futures.
“That is, how to turn the data and the algorithms that we’ve created into the best tools for the security we want.”
RBS’ digital security research arm will work with other research institutions and the Federal Government to help shape the next era of digital security.RBC has been in the digital security business for 40 years.
Rivers Edge, a company founded by the former head of RBS’ financial services division, has been researching ways to improve the security of financial information for over a decade.
