Heuristics


In previous Cloud Optimized Storage Solution articles, I’ve discussed the content being stored, the method of storage, as well as principles derived from data tiering.  Today, I want to jump ahead a bit and discuss how neural networks and heuristics can impact the processing of object and file data for the cloud.

One of the more recent advancements within computing has been the application of heuristics and neural networking. Heuristics is defined as being “…an educational method in which learning takes place through discoveries that result from investigations…“ While heuristics has historically been used in such products like anti-virus software, it provides an incredible wealth of capability and technology for the COSS solution. Similarly, neural networks provide capacitive understanding of processing layers and optimizations that learn patterns based on underlying statistical data. How do these two technologies apply to COSS?

COSS: Neural Networking Sneak Peek Audio

by dave on January 15, 2009


For those of you who think you can stand listening to me prattle on for 36 or so minutes (completely unpolished, I might add), here’s an audio clip for you that I recorded this morning.  You’ll see the content of this recording show up sometime soon as another article in the COSS (Cloud Optimized Storage Solution) article series.  In this clip I talk about heuristics, neural networks, and then (attempt) to explain it by example. Rough, I know…

Neural Networks & COSS – Rough Audio (Dave Graham)

Feedback…well, sure, if you’ve got something to say, say it!

cheers,

Dave Graham
