  • Why benchmarks are the missing piece of the ray tracing puzzle

    The real-time graphics pipeline, as modelled by today’s GPUs and its associated stack of drivers, compilers and API, accrues features at a rapid clip. The rate of change in how you program the entire system is rapid, with the ecosystem guardians and the hardware vendors that provide products for them taking advantage of the fact that GPUs have no standard ISA to implement.

  • Why I chose Strategy as a career

    I chose a career in strategy because it’s the best job in the world. It’s the kind of job where the more you learn, the less you know. It’s a role that seems to confuse people: what even is a strategist? If you check out LinkedIn, most people have the word ‘strategy’ in their list of skills. I have found my own way of answering this question; it is our job to define business problems, identify what’s contributing to them and develop key insight that lies behind the ‘idea’ that we develop. The strategy work itself can take many forms.

  • How AI and Machine Learning will Impact Business in 2020

    Artificial intelligence (AI) can be best defined as a software solution that can solve problems according to a predetermined set of rules. A simple example is the artificial intelligence that allows or prohibits access to your smartphone. The AI in this case might ask ‘Does the access code inputted, match the one on file?’ and then respond appropriately.Machine learning on the other hand, takes AI one stage further. Machine learning is a form of technology whereby computer algorithms search for regularities in patterns of data. Once such patterns are established, more probable outcomes can be predicted by the machine. This form of technology is most influential in our day to day lives, from using our debit cards to buy a coffee at our local coffee shop, to withdrawn cash from an ATM, or booking a train journey using self-service machines. This same technology can also detect fraud, and alert your bank immediately, and direct ads your way on social media, depending on your buyer patterns and behaviours.

  • A winning way to make a brand more appealing…

    Remember when you were a little kid playing with your friends? You probably still recall how grumpy you would get after losing a sports match, or how genuinely good you would behave if, instead, you won it. We’ve all been there. We then grow older and pretend to manage emotions and focus on cooperation rather than competition, but it seems that the human brain is still wired for the latter, unconsciously letting the taste of victory or defeat affect how we perceive and behave in subsequent events.

    It is an inescapable reality that the industrial (distribution) market for chip passives represents a very small proportion of global consumption of these components.

With this in mind, it makes sense for UK distribution customers to specify the chip passive sizes that are most widely used – even if that means going for a smaller device than they need or would ideally like.

  • Use your customer database wisely

    Customer communication is vital right now, but it has to be done right and you need to tread carefully when using your customer database. The efforts I’ve seen lately are a real mixed bag: Groupon and others continue to send out discount vouchers for paddleboards and pubs – wishful thinking and annoying! Sainsbury's sent well-meaning COVID-19 messages targeting some customers, but the words used reminded them they were ‘vulnerable’ and left people wondering about oversharing of their medical records. Tesco regularly emails their long-term loyal delivery customers but, as delivery demand exploded, they said nothing to them; they’ve barely updated their delivery page despite showing zero slots available and simply left these customers out in the cold.
