IBM personalized commute forecasts will keep you out of traffic jams.

Imagine a world where no one ever gets stuck in traffic–where cars have built-in sensors that can predict where and when future accidents will occur, keeping commuters out of harm’s way. That’s never going to happen.

But IBM, Caltrans, and the University of California at Berkeley are working on the next best thing: personalized commuter forecasts that analyze the traffic on individual routes, warn drivers of the rush-hour madness to come before they leave the house, and suggest new travel plans (including alternative forms of transportation).

Where we are headed.

Ray Ozzie, Soon-to-be-retired Chief Architect at Microsoft, published an internal memo identifying a pattern based on where the tech world is headed. His POV is on the world moving towards two categories of digital innovation: continuous services and connected devices.
Continuous services are “cloud-based agents” that bring together data to find insights and act on those implications based on our actions. Connected devices can take on many forms (i.e. mobile, embeddable sensors, etc.), and are used for “a broad variety of communications, creation & consumption tasks.”
Not new thoughts, but it really is a wonderfully clear viewpoint on digital. The power of APIs for instance is where today’s continuous services focus is. The next big thing for connected devices might be making your mobile phone a wallet for not just e-commerce but also brick-and-mortar purchases.
