AI: the new frontier for optimization

#artificialintelligence

Software control of both IT equipment and the supporting data center infrastructure has long been a fundamental tool for monitoring and managing both operational and energy efficiency. As financial pressures, data regulations and corporate social responsibility (CSR) demand data center operators to stay focused on improving efficiency, such tools will become more important and increasingly integrated. Separate from systems management software suites, data center infrastructure management (DCIM) tools assist in the management of supporting infrastructure such as cooling and backup power supply systems. Facilities management software, like building and energy management systems (BMS), assist in the monitoring of building or site-level functions including air conditioning and electricity supply.

The Next CSR Challenge: Engaging in a Dialogue About Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Unless it's fully grasped for its benefits, companies that use AI are putting their brands at risk if society doesn't adequately understand how it benefits from the technology. That's my principal take-away from reading a relatively new book – "Connect, How Companies Succeed by Engaging Radically with Society." "I would put on that panel representatives of government, unions, civil society, NGOs – a real cross-section of key stakeholders. The authors call for "radical openness" in the sharing of information.


Pymble Ladies' College using data to track students' performance

ZDNet

With a focus on numbers to measure a student's success flagged as passé, Justin Raymond, Dean of Curriculum Innovation at Pymble Ladies' College in Sydney, has implemented an analytics platform at the all-girls school that tracks an individual to monitor their overall performance. As part of the digital journey at the school, Raymond implemented a platform that tracks students "from functioning to thriving", gathering their performance data from each teacher and class the student is in. The concept of sharing data on a student was a big paradigm shift for the school; Raymond said teachers would previously keep that information for themselves and share it on occasion with parents. He said that the school is now dabbling with business insights and its existing dashboards to gain further insights into each individual student's learning journey, and is also working with its dashboards from an enrolment perspective to be able to gain a better insight into areas such as where each student resides "It's about really making the most of our big data sets and being proactive," he said.

Oil and Gas, AI, and the Promise of a Better Tomorrow

#artificialintelligence

These companies are now embracing technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize operations in all areas--most notably in upstream drilling and downstream production. To delve further into how they are being used, machine learning algorithms are being fed by downhole (MWD) and surface (EDR) data systems to predict the likelihood of catastrophic or downtime-related events. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are renovating how the oil and gas industry operates on a daily basis--helping to cut costs, optimize efficiency, and in the end push through another downturn.

IoT decision making improved with impact-sourced human experts

#artificialintelligence

Human experts make recommendations based on the sensor data and factors such as the pet's breed, weight and age. Impact sourcing firms train and employ workers in underemployed communities, such as U.S. veterans, military spouses and African students. In our dog sensor example, trained workers analyze sensor data and factor into account the pet's breed, age and activity level to make diet recommendations. "Microsoft actively supports impact sourcing as an innovative approach to provide both business and societal value.


Infosys Foundation to give 3.6m grant to set up artificial intelligence research centre - DealStreetAsia

#artificialintelligence

Infosys Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the IT services company, said it will give a Rs 24-crore grant over the next three years to Delhi-based Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) to set up a research centre for artificial intelligence (AI). For Infosys, which carries out its Corporate Social Responsibility through the foundation, supporting educational institutions has been a fundamental part of its CSR strategy. The grant comes at a time when Infosys chief executive Vishal Sikka, who has a doctorate degree in artificial intelligence from Stanford University, has been trying to increasingly build out capabilities around the strategic focal points of automation and artificial intelligence in the company. The proposed Infosys Center for Artificial Intelligence will facilitate work on both fundamental and applied aspects of AI and focus on areas such as robotics, machine learning, computer vision, AI for software systems, large-scale data analytics.
