Head of Sensor as a Service, Tieto

The Internet of Things (IoT) has grown much bigger in the last couple of years. Better sensors, better infrastructure and a better ability to analyse the data it produces have all contributed to a booming industry. However, technical limitations still hinder the effectiveness of IoT sensors in some scenarios. But very soon, one of those limitations will be removed with the introduction of Bluetooth 5 wireless technology. More

Dark Web, and the Tor network, is normally considered only something criminal. But if we take an objective look, it can offer positive uses as well. One such such use could be more secure IoT networking. More

Autonomous vehicles are a global phenomenon, and the field has taken huge leaps forward in the past 15 years. If a decade ago someone told me that we’d have cars with true self-driving capabilities in 2015, it would have been very hard for me to believe. More

Although people will not be needed to do administrative supervisory work (management) in the era of robotics, people will still be called upon to provide leadership. Only people can specify and decide which types of leadership are required in each situation. More

Advanced technology – robotics and artificial intelligence – is enabling multi-levelled expert organizations to transform into organizations containing only frontline employees, experts and senior managers. This leads to flatter organizations as middle managers are no longer needed. In the future, most present organizational and management models may be thrown on the scrapheap as a result of robotics.

In the era of robots, organisations can be divided into four main types. Robotics can have a determining or assisting role in an organisation but in addition, cooperation in an organisation can focus either on robots or on other people. Often the winning combination will be both; teams of people, artificial intelligence and robots working together in unison. More

Intuition by definition means something that you feel is the right thing to say/do but you cannot specify the logic behind that. The importance of intuition is widely acknowledged and many leaders and business executives underline the need for intuition is their line of business. Even further, in some cases people quite openly share, when asked how they have come to a certain conclusion or why they acted in a certain way, that they’ve trusted to their intuition. More

When a machine takes control

At best, an organisation in the era of robots is like a Buddha enlightened through critical thinking. It continuously searches for answers to questions: What are we doing? Which problem exactly are we trying to solve? What else or more important could we be doing? And how to lead people to the path of enlightenment, raising them to ultimately become masters? More

In the past, one of the biggest challenges when designing and planning an office environment was that it wasn't easy to predict exactly how and when a space would be used. More

There is a big dilemma in the Nordic insurance sector. The Nordic marketplace has been overrun with innovation over the past few decades. As new products, services and business models have revolutionized most sectors, the Nordic insurance industry has mostly been trapped in stasis. More

When it comes to how we work, things are changing. The old routine of the nine-to-five office day is on the way out as more employees demand the ability to choose when, where and how they do things. More

Technology and the possibilities it creates are changing the world at an unprecedented pace and in ways that were unimaginable just a couple decades ago. At the same, we as people have pretty much the same basic needs as Neanderthals, with all the same joy and fear that comes along with those needs. What will happen to us cavemen in an increasingly digitalized world? More

I was visiting Hannover Messe at the end of April. It was a good timing since I just returned India with a focus of Make in India program. Hannover provided a good benchmarking point to these two originally government driven initiatives, which have similarities but also differences. More

Brains versus AI

If we aim for AI that is smarter than human, then it is implied that it will at least have to surpass the human brain in one capacity or another. The brain is also the best benchmark we have available. More

Current Machine Learning and AI systems are becoming impressive and useful. Lately, as the Head of Industrial Internet for Tieto, I have seen several promising examples of systems that automatically decipher and predict faults in complex industrial systems and machinery. These systems understand language, simulate conditions, strategize and even forecast the future. This is the frontline of how industries are digitalizing and transforming. Companies that don’t embrace this new source of created value are at a serious risk of falling behind. The impacts of this technology to efficiency, customer experience and higher generated value are significant. Luckily, it is getting easier to reap these benefits too. Thresholds and requirements for investing are rapidly decreasing, and the technology in this space is also maturing. More

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is one of the most exciting possibilities for the future of software. It is also an incredibly complex field of research and very much a work in progress. It is impossible to blog about this topic without touching on the science and technology beneath it, which makes it a challenging subject to both write and read about. More

Does Internet of Things mean scary scenarios of big brother, who monitors every centimeter of our lives? Will our right to privacy perish? Will our identities be easier to steal or our smart houses broken into? More

Currently, there is rampant speculation about the Industrial Internet and the Internet of Things. While most conversations focus on their many benefits, such as increased efficiency, reduced costs or various new opportunities, there are also several potential threats that ought be discussed. But are these threats as worrisome as we may think? More

When it comes to Industrial Internet, only a few of the existing solutions consist solely of the company's own software and hardware. It's more common, and ultimately inevitable, to fit several technologies together to get the required functionalities. In this blog post I will be discussing how partnerships can support our Industrial Internet applications. More
