#DXCTechTalkBuilding a Digital WorkforceHow do you re-skill and up-skill in a fast-changing and competitive market?

#DXCTechTalkFourth Wave of HealthcareHow can healthcare organizations create real-world evidence and deliver it in a contextual way back to physicians? How will contextual data shift the provider/payer paradigm?

moving into quantum computing, one definite interest is Quantum ML. Any forays into this space, anyone? esp considering the Industry adoption focus for #DXCLabs
Sam Johnston
I think simulation is going to be one of the key use cases for quantum... right after breaking encryption ;)
Michael Sausen
Quantum still has to grow up but Googles Bristlecone is a big step forward.
Ganesh Swaminathan
I am already thinking of a use case for traffic simulation & travel planning within Bangalore City (Considering the huge unpredictable traffic conditions). Will google partner with us?
Subbu Devarayan
Quantum theory has always been very fascinating and the combination of this theory coupled with Machine Learning is exciting
Subbu Devarayan
@ganeshwrite A good use case inline with what you are saying is to analyze the traffic pattern, crowd pattern in specific lanes and guide the vehicles to align to reduce wait times in toll plazas would be interesting
Dan Hushon
The most important thing that we are learning thru @DXClabs is the unexpected value of experimentation - whether success or failure!
Akshay Saigal
fail fast learn fast
Dan Hushon
@saigal_akshay and share the learning
lewis richards
i'm waiting for the video of the spectacular failure......THEN i'll know we are making progress, that humility and openness is key in this space, if everyone keeps pretending that everyone is awesome then there is no differentiation. I want transparency
Sam Johnston
fortunately we haven’t abandoned any topics (fail fast etc.) but as we get further into the future I think we’ll see a few of the class never graduate. But that’s OK :)
Sam Johnston
@stroker: I guess you didn’t see the video where Phil and I pushed the drone too hard for a filming deadline and crashed it into the sea; fortunately it was streaming its location so we were able to retrieve it (and the footage) :)
lewis richards
@samj I was going to caveat that with 'it's because the team are awesome!'
Dan Hushon
@samj that was an expensive disaster
Dan Hushon
BTW Thanks for the #DXCTechTalks @heatherswall! and let's take time to recognized #IWD2018 ... Diversity is key to innovation and success
Lisa Braun
Great job by @heatherswall as always, managing these talks, from content to coordination to production. Nice work Heather and thank you!
Heather Simpson 🌈🍃
@LisaAnneBraun It has been a pleasure :) Anxiety inducing at times but wow, with leadership like @danhushon and a crowd like our #DXCTechTalk'ers, these things have been so amazing to be a part of!
lewis richards
@danhushon Robert Mackenzie Citizen Surgery at its finest!! Here's my RFID Chip implant ;) https://youtu.be/OKr...
Robert McKenzie
Better you than me..how well does it work..been hacked yet?
lewis richards
nah not yet ;) got my business card and twitter contact details on it at the moment, did have my work pass on there for the office
Glenn Augustus
assume you watch Black Mirror on Netflix - equal measures of inspiration and alarm
lewis richards
@glennaugustus Dude that's my life, the camera crew following me round all the time are a right pain!
Heather Simpson 🌈🍃
oh for the @wired docuseries? Its awesome, btw ;)
Lisa Braun
DXC Labs' @venugbx has explored 3D printing for procurement for much shorter and more efficient ordering cycles: https://blogs.dxc.te...
Sam Johnston
I really like the 3D printing supply chain use case, and the technology is only going to get better — you can already “print” organs, would you believe?
Lisa Braun
@samj Right, I remember reading about the organs -- and prosthetics was an early use case.
Dan Hushon
yep $ONVO has been around for a while... skin is absolutely possible today, scaffolds are getting easier... gene splicing - is that DNA printing?
Robert McKenzie
some great orthopedic use cases..e.g. a hip replacement is cheaper and more effective with a custom printed implant.
Baskar Venugopalan
Do agree. Adidas 3d printed shoes in the market.
Baskar Venugopalan
Also huge presence in Dental
Baskar Venugopalan
recent one from Bugatti brake caliper
Lisa Braun
Which makes total sense since dental pieces are custom work.
lewis richards
from our latest report 'what's creepy today is commonplace tomorrow'
Dan Hushon
And GE is able to print parts that cannot be milled or founded so it's putting new boundaries on industrial design and engineering.
Akshay Saigal
Philosophical question Forgiveness can it be programmed?? We forgive people and give second chance. With Humanoids expressions, data and trends are the key data points… they evaluate based on the above ……Are we ready with Artificial Intelligence which can forgive?
Lisa Braun
This starts to sound like a sentient being, and @sansvema says we are nowhere near that -- for now. Very interesting question though. https://blogs.dxc.te...
lewis richards
it flips round in my mind as well, not so much focusing on the sentience of the machine but how we as humans treat them? Who thanks Alexa for setting an alarm or playing a song? I do? I talk to my robot vacuum!
lewis richards
I probably shouldn't have admitted to that..............
Glenn Augustus
it depends if you are going to align humanoids to an OSI layer model that mirrors a celestial hierarchy (or equiv)
Akshay Saigal
@stroker I at time do thank Google and Siri but yeah feels different.
Lisa Braun
@stroker Have you seen the videos from Boston Dynamics about when people kick their robots and everyone gets horrified? It's a real thing how we treat them and "feel" for them. Meanwhile, the engineers are testing them! https://www.bostondy...
lewis richards
@LisaAnneBraun yea that and the one the other week of one opening the door for the other one to get out!
Heather Simpson 🌈🍃
@stroker @LisaAnneBraun I hope I never stop saying please to Alexa :)
Lisa Braun
@stroker Yes, I saw that. VERY hard to manipulate a door handle. (My relative works there.)
lewis richards
@DanHushon Yea terrifying, if you've every read Daemon by Daniel Suarez then that video will put the proper heebie jeebies up you!
Dan Hushon
What one "next gen" device can you not live without [a phone is a given]... @stroker, this is your on an island question?
lewis richards
at the current point in time.....Hololens, i'd have that island pimped out in no time #DigitalRobinsonCrusoe
Dan Hushon
yep #hololens is a productivity game changer once you take the training wheels off.
lewis richards
best field test I did was watching 5 episodes of Luke Cage on Netflix at LAX in the lounge
Sam Johnston
@stroker: I see your headset and raise you AR glasses
Dan Hushon
question will always be "developer impact"
lewis richards
@samj Once Magic Leap ONE comes out (if it ever does) i'm right there with you ;) see they've raised over $2bn now, DXCLabs doesn't compete with that, we have to work smartly in and around it
Dan Hushon

Drone voice navigation made possible with what3words and DXC Technology | what3words
We’ve gone drone-crazy. From pizza deliveries to rescue operations, unmanned aerial vehicles are doing it all, and more and more businesses are using them to supplement their…
LaToyia Penny
Why not just 2 words or 1?
Lisa Braun
See a video of the drone and more on what3words: http://www.dxc.techn...
Lisa Braun
Uses 3 words to provide a precise location
LaToyia Penny
I see. Thanks, Lisa! Can 1 word can be related to 1 point
Dan Hushon
3 words gives us enough "words" to represent every square meter of the world
Lisa Braun
LaToyia: From their site: "We have divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares and assigned each one a unique 3 word address." https://what3words.c...
LaToyia Penny
I see. Thank you!
LaToyia Penny
I was thinking geo locations as mappings
Dan Hushon
problem is that a geolocation for most looks like this: just try and remember these #'s 40.7484° N, 73.9857° W ... vs. empire-state-building
