Opinion / Analysis
A Thousand Brains and the EKG. How shape detection drives classification
Dan McCreary is an excellent resource for learning about enterprise knowledge graphs, especially for complex applications. This article was inspired by Jeff Hawkins’ book, A Thousand Brains. McCreary sees parts of Hawkins’ brain theory as an enlightening way to think about the future of enterprise knowledge graph architectures and capabilities. The book looks like a must-read for anyone interested in brain theory — I’ve just started it — but you don’t need to read the book to understand McCreary’s ideas about EKGs.
A major barrier to scalable analytics
In this short article, Bill Franks cautions against neglecting to adequately consider the costs of moving data around, which remain significant in spite of all the improvements in data management tools.
This challenge exists with traditional relational data warehouses and data marts. It also exists in the more recent NoSQL and file-based data repositories. Most critically, the challenge doesn’t go away with cloud architectures in general, or with newer paradigms like a data mesh or data fabric. While some of the newer approaches make the management of the disparate data sources more seamless to a user and easier for administrators, the fundamental problem of having to move data is still there. It’s just easier to ask for it to happen. Hybrid cloud environments can be particularly problematic in this respect.
