VR without obstructing goggles opens up big opportunities

So far, using VR goggles makes nearly everyone look rather stupid. No one sees what you sees, and you face is covered. Now, Google has found a way forward which opens up great venues. Just think about it: Soon you can wear VR glasses that look like ordinary glasses, but that feed you the information you need as a layer on top of what we refer to as reality today. Soon we can, just by looking a person, see a summary of their latest Facebook and LinkedIn posts, and see suggestions of questions to ask based on their current lives. Spooky for some, but deeply meaningful for others.

Google has figured out a way to let you see VR headset users’ full faces while they’re immersed in an experience – as if the headsets were invisible.

Deloitte says: Focus on Machine Intelligence (MI), not just #AI

Deloitte just released their report Tech Trends 2017: The Kinetic Enterprise, where they highlight the expected of Machine Intelligence (MI). Yes, they think we have focused too much on Artificial Intelligence (AI), which they say is a subset of Machine Intelligence (MI). As they describe it, MI also includes machine learning, deep learning, cognitive analytics, robotics process automation (RPA), and bots.

Deloitte also sees three areas as driving the development of MI: Exponential data growth, Faster distributed systems, and Smarter algorithms. And as we can see in the image below, all the tech giants are doing acquisitions to be better at MI. Given the sizes of these companies, and how many applications they offer us privately and professionally, this will have an enormous impact on us the coming years.

Conventional wisdom holds that artificial intelligence is the next great horizontal technology that will unleash future waves of innovation. Yet AI is not a single type of technology. It takes many f
