How AI And RPA Can Reshape The Insurance Industry Process

#artificialintelligence

AI and RPA are only beginning to transform how business is done in the insurance industry. We can expect to see burgeoning usage in operations, customer service, risk assessment, and mitigation and regulatory compliance. Insurance companies are only beginning to harness the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic process automation (RPA). AI refers to computer systems that can mimic human capabilities by learning and solving problems. RPA is an emerging form of business process automation technology based on using software robots or AI "workers."


Nanning holds seminar on AI application in medicine

#artificialintelligence

A medical AI expert shares views from his experiences at the seminar. More than 30 local government representatives and experts in academic, medical, and industrial fields were invited to explore the pressing issues, pain points, and future development of artificial intelligence (AI) application in medicine in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region. Held by the Chinese Health Information and Big Data Association (CHIBDA) and the Big Data Development Bureau of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the seminar aimed to promote the AI application in medical treatment. Participants conducted a discussion on the challenges encountered in the innovative cooperation of medical AI in its use, production, learning, and research, exploring the cooperation models between AI enterprises and hospitals from various perspectives. Combined with the local conditions in Guangxi, they also provided valuable experience and advice for the development of medical AI.

Artificial Intelligence Only Goes So Far In Today's Economy, Says MIT Study

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence and machine learning may be ideal for picking up the day-to-day tasks of running enterprises, but still fall flat when it comes to innovation or reacting to unforeseen or one-off events. While enterprise-grade AI is still a ways off, it's incumbent on business and IT leaders to start piloting and exploring the advantages AI potentially offers. That's the word coming out of a recent report from the MIT Task Force on the Work of the Future, which looked at AI as part of a broad range of changes sweeping the employment scene and workplace. "We are a long way from AI systems that can read the news, re-plan supply chains in response to anticipated events like Brexit or trade disputes, and adapt production tasks to new sources of parts and materials," state the report's authors, David Autor of the National Bureau of Economic Research, along with David Mindell and Elisabeth Reynolds, both with MIT. For starters, data – the fuel that propels AI decision-making – is not ready for the leap.


GE Healthcare Receives FDA Clearance of First Artificial Intelligence Algorithms Embedded On-Device to Prioritize Critical Chest X-ray Review

#artificialintelligence

WAUKESHA, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GE Healthcare today announced the Food and Drug Administration's 510(k) clearance of Critical Care Suite, an industry-first collection of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms embedded on a mobile X-ray device. Built in collaboration with UC San Francisco (UCSF), using GE Healthcare's Edison platform, the AI algorithms help to reduce the turn-around time it can take for radiologists to review a suspected pneumothorax, a type of collapsed lung. "X-ray – the world's oldest form of medical imaging – just got a whole lot smarter, and soon, the rest of our offerings will too," says Kieran Murphy, President & CEO, GE Healthcare. "GE Healthcare is leading the way in the creation of AI applications for diagnostic imaging and taking what was once a promise and turning it into a reality. By integrating AI into every aspect of care, we will ultimately improve patient outcomes, reduce waste and inefficiencies, and eliminate costly errors. Critical Care Suite is just the beginning."


3 Python Tools Data Scientists Can Use for Production-Quality Code

#artificialintelligence

For many of these steps, there are no real short cuts to be taken. The only way to build a minimum viable product, for example, is to roll up your sleeves and start coding. However, in a few cases, tools exist to automate tedious manual processes and make your life much easier. In Python, this is the situation for steps 4, 8 and 10, thanks to the unittest, flake8 and sphinx packages. Let's look at each of these packages one by one.


Edward Snowden: 'Greatest danger still lies ahead with refinement of AI'

However, he argues, these are not enough to counter accelerating technological changes allowing greater intrusions of privacy and he calls for a worldwide protest movement, similar to those on climate change. He added: "You have to be ready to stand for something if you want it to change. "That is what I hope this book (Permanent Record) will help people come to decide for themselves." The revelation coincides with the GSMA's announcement that the AI market is projected to reach $70 billion by 2020.


Artificial Intelligence Boosts Employee Performance

#artificialintelligence

Technology tools such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and cloud-based analytics platforms, along with aggregated "big data" organized into informational dashboards, may have cracked the code for improving worker productivity. Data about how employees work and behave can be analyzed, predicted and subsequently used to drive decisions to allocate resources, monitor performance and make the workplace better. These solutions have evolved to shape the way workers work. Vadim Tabakman is the "technical evangelist" at Nintex, a Bellevue, Wash., firm providing end-to-end process management and workflow automation. He said AI and ML are used in many ways to improve performance by learning employee work patterns and habits.


Artificial intelligence is watching China's students but how well can it really see?

#artificialintelligence

Almost every second of Betty Li's school life is monitored. The 22-year-old student at a university in northwestern China must get through face scanners to enter her dormitory and register attendance, while cameras above the blackboards in her classrooms keep an eye on the students' attentiveness. Like many other educational institutions across the country, the university in Xian, Shaanxi province, deployed AI-powered gates and facial recognition cameras several years ago as a part of the "smart campuses" campaign promoted by the Ministry of Education. Some schools are even exploring ways to use artificial intelligence to analyse the behaviour of teachers and students. The universities are at the forefront of a national effort to lead the world in emerging technologies and move China's economy up the value chain.


Telstra Leads Multi-Million Dollar AI Investment – channelnews

#artificialintelligence

Telstra's independent venture capital arm has shown its intention to expand into the artificial intelligence data market following a $US100m (145m AUD) capital raising for San Francisco company Trifacta. Trifacta employs machine-learning technology to deduce a greater depth of insights from the increasing level of data migrating to cloud-based storage. Australia's largest venture capital fund, Telstra Ventures Fund No 2, led the investment, joined in the round by the likes of Energy Impact Partners, NTT Docomo, BMW Ventures and ABN AMRO. Telstra Venture joins a long and credible list of existing investors from Accel Partners, Greylock Partners, Ignition Partners and Google. "The share register for Trifacta is very impressive. It is great to have so many experienced and impressive co-investors in this deal. That is a really massive plus for us," Mr Koertge said.
