Machine learning, and a more advanced technology called deep learning, are types of artificial intelligence that allow a computer to learn information based on the data it is given. Essentially, the more information the computer is given, the better it can learn -- and in the case of platforms like Spotify or Netflix, the more interaction you have with the program, the better it can recommend music, movies, or TV shows that you'll like.

Big Data and artificial general intelligence companies, the new darlings of Silicon Valley and organizations concerned with international security, should pay heed to what has happened this year. The Brexit vote proved that assumptions of fact, the springboard for all deductive or inductive reasoning-- are heavily prone to human error.

It's time for humans to apply this same drive we have towards embracing new hobbies and skillsets to how we embrace cognitive computing. Cognitive computing, like IBM's world-famous Watson, illuminates aspects of our world that were previously invisible, like patterns and insights in unstructured data.
We rely on security systems to keep us out of harm's way. As technology continues to grow, both home and commercial security systems are strengthening, and the market for advanced security systems is expanding rapidly, giving you the consumer a plethora of options to choose from.

Virtual reality, smart homes and digital assistants -- what was once science fiction from our favourite episodes of The Jetsons, is now well on its way to becoming science fact. We're only two weeks into 2016, and I predict that it's going to be a big year for technological innovation.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens might be taking us to a galaxy, far, far away, but way, way before even the first Star Wars did so, another science-fiction film took us much, much farther. Fifty years ago this week, six astronauts posed on the moon for a selfie-ish photograph next to a newly uncovered three million-year old alien artifact.
