It happens to all guys. Plastic frames snap when you take an elbow to the face during a pickup basketball game. Lenses get scratched when you drop your eyeglasses and accidentally kick them skidding across the factory floor.
The trouble is, when your eyeglasses get twisted, scratched or mangled, you need a fix now. You can’t wait to buy new ones when you see the optometrist in a year or so.
If you’re in the market for rugged, durable eyeglasses, you have to think about the materials in your f...
“Legally blind” means you’re essentially sightless in the eyes of the law if eyeglasses or contact lenses cannot correct your vision beyond specific standards.
How do we define who’s legally blind?
In the U.S., the standard definition of legal blindness is based on central visual acuity (what’s in front of you) and field of vision (what’s above, below and to the sides).
By this definition, you’re legally blind if your better eye — when using a corrective lens — has a central visual acuity of ...
Everybody wants to see into the future until they run a cost-benefit analysis on a crystal ball.
That’s been the experience of Parag Kulkarni, Nutanix’s vice president for SaaS engineering. Kulkarni leads teams with three critical responsibilities: creating SaaS apps for customers, developing software for internal company use, and using analytics data to generate predictive insights.
Nutanix apps and machines generate immense volumes of useful data. Kulkarni said customers understand that dat...
Dheeraj Pandey remained cool under the hot lights of the CNBC studio.
It was September 23, 2019 — 10 years to the day after Pandey and two friends started Nutanix, the pioneer of hyperconverged IT infrastructure. Pandey sat down with Jim Cramer, the financial media star, to explain why investors should ride out a drop in Nutanix’s stock price.
“If we didn’t take this short-term pain,” Nutanix CEO Pandey said, “we’d not have the long-term gain of being a hybrid cloud company.”
That’s his modus...
Patience. Prudence. Persistence.
It takes all three to master the evolving enterprise cloud market in the Asia-Pacific-Japan (APJ) region, according to Matt Young, senior vice president of sales for Nutanix in the APJ. Diversity, demanding managers, and cautious executives are all part of the package in the APJ, where cultures dating to ancient times collide with 21st Century realities.
“I’d say it’s probably one of the most volatile regions in the world,” he said.

Looking under the hood of our relentless drive for technology innovation is not for the faint of heart. Everything gets more intricate every day — even as technology users demand more simplicity and better user experiences.
It’s no small challenge to thrive in this environment, but that’s exactly what Steven Poitras does. It just comes naturally to him. It’s his thing.
Poitras is the principal solutions architect at Nutanix, where he has made a career out of helping companies modernize their ...
Scientists are gathering immense databases exploring how our genes influence our health. And even more data is coming from wearable devices and app-enabled smartphones.
Sooner than we may expect, gene science, big data and wearable technologies will converge to forever change the way we prevent, predict, diagnose and treat diseases.
“I think we're going to see an explosion of all kinds of data that will help manage people's health and predict medicines they should use at a level that's never been done before,” says Michael Snyder, PhD, Professor and Chair of Genetics and Director of the S
Health care organizations are slowly waking up to a troubling new reality: Criminals increasingly see web applications as a promising path to lucrative patient records. Why are web apps so tempting?
Because they can often be breached without setting off intrusion-detection alarms or getting flagged by anti-virus software.
Read on to learn more about the health care web-application ecosystem and potential HIPAA audit concerns. This playbook will outline potentialvulnerabilities and offer guidance on securing health care apps to prevent expensive data breaches.
The next phase of voice technology is natural language understanding (NLU), which uses AI, machine learning and data science to place vocal cues in the context of people’s lives.
Today’s voice apps like Alexa and Siri respond to basic vocal cues via natural language processing (NLP). They can do amazing things, but only in a narrow range of scenarios.
DMI developed a sophisticated technology ecosystem to enable the development of autonomous vehicles in the years to come. This whitepaper outlines DMI's strategic approach.
Excerpt: DMI sees the automotive sector as ripe for disruption as mobile technologies become engines of consumer choice. When vehicles become networked platforms, travelers will expect applications that adapt to their unique needs.
The nonstop chatter about self-driving vehicles usually includes a caveat that this technology is at least seven years in the future. That raises a pressing question: What will the connected-vehicle space look like in the years before vehicles become fully autonomous?
This year, DMI developed CATE—Connected Autonomous Transport Ecosystem—to help the auto industry clear a path to developing vehicles that drive themselves. The CATE framework has three phases:
Connected: The current phase. Vehic...
A vehicle smart enough to drive itself adds enormous value to the lives of people.
Imagine a typical workday a decade from now. Your vehicle drives itself to the dealership for an oil change. It picks up passengers along the way to subsidize the trip. Then it picks you up at work and drives you home. Along the way, it asks you if you’d like to warm up the oven for that leftover pizza in your fridge.
When we talk about autonomous vehicles today, it’s mostly about taking our hands off the steer...
Human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus that causes genital warts, is an equal-opportunity bug. It’ll infect anybody who is sexually active. 80% of people catch HPV at least once.
Though HPV isn’t one of the most dangerous STIs, it’s still a great idea to educate and protect yourself.
Why? Because HPV is a riskier infection for people who have compromised immune systems.
Lawyers Professional Liability (LPL) coverage has distinct language that can confound the sharpest legal minds. LPL policies help you manage the risk of straightforward scenarios such as:
* Your partner commits an offense that you know nothing about.
* Hackers steal sensitive confidential data from your computer system.
* You need coverage that extends beyond the initiation date of your new policy.
Which kind of frog are you — the one who escapes the boiling water or the one who suffers the slow boil into irrelevance?
This amphibious inquiry goes to the heart of the disruptions of our digital age, says John Lefferts, a GAMA leader for decades and the chief revenue officer for Assurance, an app that helps insurance pros attract and win new clients. Lefferts shares the familiar analogy of a frog leaping out of boiling water but remaining in lukewarm water even as the temperature gradually rises to fatal heights.
