下季時尚界將流行華麗、復古,還是田園小清新?時尚設計師每季都在比拚觸覺、眼光和膽識,希望比同業領先潮流。亮麗的舞台背後,認知運算的應用,正在悄悄改變時裝工業的節拍。

時尚品牌 Tommy Hilfiger 最近夥拍 IBM,進行一項「重新想像」(Reimagine) 的零售計劃,運用人工智能,希望比同業更快找出未來流行的風向。計劃結合 IBM 的認知運算技術、Tommy Hilfiger 可觀的產品資料庫,和大量時展覽天橋上影像,輔助經驗尚淺的設計學生,設計出既具前瞻視野、又貫徹品牌風格的圖案、輪廓與形態,媲美大師風格。

深度學習:拆解健康密碼

Healthcare_3

早在 1880 年代,醫學界已使用內窺鏡和大腸鏡檢查人體內部情況,由專家分析醫療影像,但診斷有時會因人為錯誤和後台因素出錯。

隨全球城市人口增長,內科疾病個案數字急速上升,公眾對診斷專家的需求殷切,單在數量上培訓專家並不足夠。病理學家須長時間接受訓練、努力不懈,透過觀察顯微鏡和侵入性測試,方能辦別腫瘤組織。深度學習 (Deep Learning) 有助醫療觀測診斷的方法更上一層樓。

2018 年資訊保安藍圖

(文章亦同時被 Unwire Pro引用)

cybersecurity

新的一年,又到了制訂計劃、開創路向的季節。在企業資訊保安行業,雖然沒有人能用水晶球預言今年會出現怎樣的黑客和病毒,但根據行業和技術趨勢,我們可循三個方向提供建議,幫助企業主管思考,機構怎樣應付未來的挑戰。

具規模的企業,多數已把企業資訊保安工作,發展成資訊安全監控中心﹝security operations centre,簡稱 SOC﹞── 由保安專家進行 24 x 7 的全天候監控,提供快速有效的突發事件處理機制,維護企業運作。隨著黑客和病毒的轉變,SOC 也要調節資源和程序,在兵賊攻防戰上與時並進。

量子電腦 有望打破「摩爾定律」

(文章於2018年3月12日在香港經濟日報刊登)

談量子運算(Quantum Computing),可從著名的「薜丁格的貓」(Schrödinger’s Cat)入手。這是個由奥地利同名物理學家提出的假想實驗:把一隻貓關進載有鐳和氰化物的密封容器內,若鐳發生衰變,觸發機關打碎瓶子,貓就會毒死。

量子理論指出,鐳有發生或不發生衰變的機率,亦處於衰變和沒衰變兩種狀態的疊加,故貓也同時處於死與活的疊加狀態!這種不確定性看似荒謬,在量子世界卻是常態。

量子電腦,則由一些纒結的量子比特(Qubit)組成,利用量子狀態描述資訊,量子比特就像薜丁格的貓,同時是0及1,狀態彼此相連。 Continue reading
