See how Artificial Intelligence is changing the way we live our lives

AI as a strategic area of investment in order to stand out from the crowd. For instance, a survey conducted by Vanson Bourne, a research firm on behalf of Teradata on 260 IT and business decision-makers, reveals that more than 80% of companies are investing in AI.

Industries impacted by AI

Even if AI has an impact on all industries, there are several areas that will be revolutionized by it. The above-mentioned survey also shows that 59% of companies from IT and telecommunication expect to take advantages from AI, followed by 43% business and professional services and 32% of customer services and financial services.

AI will revolutionize medicine

2018 it’s considered the year when AI will expand more to medical diagnostics. “By the end of next year, I think around half of leading healthcare systems will have adopted some form of AI within their diagnostic groups. In 2018, we’ll begin the adoption of a technology that may truly transform the way providers work, and the way patients experience healthcare, on a global scale”, explains Mark Michalski, executive director, “Massachusetts General Hospital” and “Brigham and Women’s Hospital Center” for Clinical Data Science.

AI in everyday life

AI has changed so much our daily life that soon we will ask ourselves how we were able to live without it. 2018 is expected to be the year in which voice-based gadgets will work together and have personalized media – from reports to music playlists, according to our taste and interests.

AI will create new jobs

AI also seems to bring changes in the labor market. People are concerned that their jobs will be replaced with robots in the future. According to a Gartner report from December 2017, AI will replace only low-level, routine work. Besides this, AI is expected to generate more new jobs – 2.3 million by 2020, while eliminating only 1.8 million jobs.

Externalized Configuration with Spring Cloud Config and Vault

You start a new project. In the beginning, it’s mostly prototyping; you try out ideas and nothing is fixed yet, so you are very pragmatic when it comes to the configuration of your application. Some property files are stored next to the source code – at least you are not using hard-coded URLs and credentials! When you first deploy the application to a dev or demo environment, you simply copy and modify the property files. The prototype turns into production code, yet the configuration is still managed in an ad-hoc manner. Does this sound familiar to you? It was, at any rate, the situation I found myself in with one my of current projects somewhat more than a year ago.

Maintaining separate copies of the configuration files in different environments was probably never the best approach, even when we used to deploy onto few long-running snowflake servers. Given that we more and more learn to take advantage of cloud offerings, therefore often create short-lived application environments for, e.g., tests, and deploy even our production systems as phoenix servers, we need to do better.

Read this article if you want to find out how Haufe approached this issue in one of their Spring Boot-based projects using Spring Cloud Config and Spring Cloud Vault and how they customized these libraries to meet their needs.

Automate Amazon Machine Images(AMI’s) with Packer

What is an AMI?

An Amazon Machine Image (AMI) provides the information required to launch an instance, which is a virtual server in the cloud. You specify an AMI when you launch an instance, and you can launch as many instances from the AMI as you need. You can also launch instances from as many different AMIs as you need.

Let’s see what Packer is:

Packer is an open source tool for creating identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration. A machine image is a single static unit that contains a pre-configured operating system and installed software which is used to quickly create new running machines. Machine image format changes for each platform like: AMIs for EC2, VMDK/VMX files for VMware, OVF exports for VirtualBox, etc.”

The reason Packer is used to create our instances, instead of already existing AMI’s tools, provided by Amazon, is that we want to have the full control for our images creation, choosing how we want to install only the packages we need. Having full control on your AMI’s creation, will be more secure.

You can find out here how to create an AMI from scratch starting from an .iso you want, using your favorite OS.

Dependency Injection (DI) or no Dependency Injection in the .NET Framework

We often hear the terms Inversion of Control or Dependency Injection used interchangeably, which is normal considering they refer to the same thing. Inversion of Control is a programming style where a framework or runtime controls the program flow. It was first brought into discussion in 1988 in Designing Reusable Classes.

Later, Inversion of control over Dependencies became a standalone term, named – Dependency Injection, and it refers to dependency management as a subset of Inversion of Control.

But, why worry about dependencies and about knowing the types of dependencies that your code can have?

Read this article and learn more about which dependencies are good or not for your code.

Smart Parking – IoT Perspectives

Using the disturbance of the Earth’s magnetic field to detect the presence of a vehicle is not a new concept. More than five decades ago, Koerner and Brickner imagined a system where this kind of information can be obtained, centralized and processed.

Presently, by combining embedded engineering with big data solutions online parking monitoring and reservation, intelligent indoor routing towards a specific parking place, metropolitan traffic management are only a few possible applications that can take us to smart cities.

Read this article to understand better how this can be technically possible in a short manner of time.
