The advent of 5G mobile broadband technology promises to revolutionise the way people communicate with machines, and the way organisations across the board conduct business. “5G will enable instantaneous connectivity for billions of devices, the Internet of things (IoT) and a world that is truly connected. These networks promise to bring dramatic economic and efficiency improvements in the markets in which they are deployed,” says Juanita Clark, CEO of FTTX Council Africa, a body that fo-cusses on the fibre industry and all stakeholders affected by the industry. She says smart city and factory applications, telemedicine, autonomous vehicles and other machines for fourth Industrial Revolution applications, are among many examples where 5G is set to revolutionise a wide range of industries.

Graph machine learning in distributed systems: What you need to know

Article | March 16, 2020

Just as graphs make it easier for us to understand and act on complex data, graph machine learning can take graph theory a giant step further. But can it even help today’s service providers to improve reliability and predict anomalous behaviors in complicated distributed systems? Find out below…How much do you know about graph representation of data? Over the last two decades, graph theory has become increasingly popular in both research and industry. Among other areas, it has been used in epidemiology, medicine genetics, healthcare, banking and engineering to solve challenges such as routing, finding relation, path etc.

Cartesi creates Linux infrastructure for blockchain DApps

Article | March 16, 2020

DApps (sometimes called Dapps) are from the blockchain universe and so, logically, the apps part stands for application (obviously) and the D part stands for decentralised (only obvious once you know that we’re talking distributed immutable language here). According to the guides section at blockgeeks, DApps are open source in terms of code base, incentivised (in terms of who validates it) and essentially decentralised so that all records of the application’s operation must be stored on a public and decentralised blockchain to avoid pitfalls of centralisation. So then, Cartesi is a DApp infrastructure that runs an operating system (OS) on top of blockchains. The company has now launched a more complete ‘platform-level’ offering, which is described as a layer-2 solution

Edge computing environments: what you need to know

Article | March 16, 2020

The saying goes: “If you’re not on the edge, you’re taking up too much space”. And compute itself is now moving to the edge, forcing datacentre operators to wring the last drops of productivity from their infrastructure, ahead of a future supporting multi-sensor internet of things (IoT) devices over 5G for machine learning, and even artificial intelligence (AI). Jennifer Cooke, research director of cloud-to-edge datacentre trends at IDC, says datacentre operators need to start thinking about how many systems they will need to roll out, and the people they will need to support them. “Cost becomes the prohibitive factor,”
