The Ten Emerging Technologies in 2008

The Technology Review Magazine, published by MIT, in its cover story and in its online edition, published a special report about the 10 Emerging Technologies in 2008, that they defined as the 10 most exciting, world-changing technologies of the year.

All technologies are very interesting, but for us from IT, mainly from BI/PM, the concept of Modeling Surprise is amazing.

The definition of Modeling Surprise: combines data mining and machine learning to create computer models for predict surprise events.

For those interested in data mining and machine learning, there is a good book:

- Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques, Second Edition - Ian H. Witten, Eibe Frank
