IBM Unveils Project DataWorks To Enable AI-Powered Decision Making
IBM has launched a new cloud-based big data analytics solution called Project DataWorks. It is a Watson-based initiative that taps IBM Watson’s cognitive capabilities and allows users to integrate all types of data while making more artificial intelligence-enhanced decisions.
Project DataWorks is also built with Apache Spark which helps in prioritizing speed and usability without having to sacrifice robust analytics. The new DataWork tools can be accessed by enterprises through IBM’s Bluemix cloud platform. This helps to simplify the process of collecting, organizing, securing and governing the users’ data.

JVM-friendly Golo Will Aid IoT Developers
Developers of the Gogo language for JVM are exploring enhancements such as concurrency models and improved runtime performance to increase the language’s IoT development capability. Golo is a dynamic, weakly typed language that favors explicit over implicit and was created out of experiments by Dynamite research team in CITI (Center for Innovation in Telecommunications and Integration) Labs in France. The language is designed with the aim to keep its internals simple and easy to understand.
“Golo plays nicely with the larger JVM ecosystem and of course with the Java programming language itself. It is a simple functional style language with a small runtime, and it yields reasonable performance for a dynamically typed language,” said the project leader, Julien Ponge. “We’ve found that it works great for IoT experimentation.”
