Encryption. Cybersecurity. Privacy. Password protection. Those are just a few keywords from the headlines of one recent report of a leading US newspaper this year debating security and privacy in our modern world. The topic is everywhere in the news, of course. Data breaches of major impact have become routine occurrences: Target in 2013, Sony in 2014, Equifax, Uber, and Yahoo in 2017, and who can forget Facebook in 2018? But, how much do you really know about cybersecurity? And, perhaps more im...

It is a great tool for experimentation and since its initial release, TensorFlow has been ported to the browser, and integrated into mobile devices. Hardware designed and dedicated for machine learning, such ...

If those services go away or are disrupted, many (maybe most) IoT things become less useful than bric...

Accessibility (also referred to as a11y) means that you must provide ways for people to interact with your digital product in ways that respect a range of people’s physical and mental capabilities. The cost of avoiding accessibility goes beyond product adoption or negative reviews - you risk exposing your business to a lawsuit. L...

When hiring a product manager, there is often a tug of war between whether to emphasize domain expertise or product management prowess. The ideal candidate is (no surprise) someone who can go deep on the subject matter and is an accomplished product manager (PM). But, what to do when the mythical candidate doesn’t materialize: hire a domain expert and train them to become a product manager? Hire a product manager and teach them the domain? Wait and hope for the purple squirrel to come along? ...
