How Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things can transform the Business of Saving Lives - Express Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

Technology, with its rapid evolution has been taking several industries across India by storm. Most experts in their field are welcoming developments like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) due to their effectiveness and lack of human involvement in accomplishing a host of tasks. With regards to the business of saving lives, this evolution is truly a relief, with speed being the biggest advantage, which the healthcare industry of the country is reliant on. AI has been making inroads in this sector to ensure not just a quick turnaround, but also accessibility to those in dire need of medical aid and care. IoT too, is gradually being recognised as a key contributor to cause a paradigm shift in the industry.


Can AI processing at the edge help maintain our privacy in smart homes, cities, and beyond?

#artificialintelligence

The rapid progress in artificial intelligence, smart devices, and smart cities promises to revolutionise the way we work, live, and connect. However, recent scandals surrounding the handling of user data have prompted a wave of privacy concerns. The smarter a city gets, the more it can keep tabs on our every move. Likewise, with connected home devices and digital assistants picking up our daily activities and queries, the potential for privacy breaches are endless. Europe's pioneering General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) is one of several attempts by governments to mitigate widespread shortfalls in customer data protection, for both companies and governments.


7 trends impacting commercial and industrial IoT data

#artificialintelligence

This is turning out to be an active year for advances with Internet of Things technologies, especially in the area of commercial and industrial IoT. To put all the advances in perspective, let's look at seven top trends that are driving this space, from compute size, to the value of true edge computing, to closed-loop edge to cloud machine learning and more. IIoT analytics and ML companies will be heavily measured on how much they can deliver in how little compute. As IIoT projects pivot away from cloud-centric approaches, the next step in the evolution of artificial intelligence and IIoT will address the need to convert algorithms to work at the edge in a dramatically smaller footprint. According to Gartner, within the next four years, 75% of enterprise-generated data will be processed at the edge (versus the cloud), up from 10% today.

For iPhone users who don't want to venture far to control their smart homes, look no further than Apple HomeKit. Like Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant, you can use HomeKit to control and command your favorite HomeKit-compatible smart devices. Apple HomeKit isn't compatible with quite as many devices as the aforementioned digital assistants, but unlike smart home systems such as Samsung SmartThings, it doesn't require a specific hub to configure. All you need to get started is to scope out the compatible hardware--door locks, smart bulbs, and so on--and once these gadgets are synced up, you can walk through the door and ask Siri to turn on the lights! The Apple Home app lets you control connected devices.

How IoT Can Make Your Home and City Smarter

#artificialintelligence

Today, it's hard to say which ambition came first: smart cities/homes or the Internet of Things (IoT). In short, both suggest a vision of ubiquitous computing, first propelled by Mike Koniavsky. "Ubicomp" is the practice of incorporating information processing and network communication into everyday human environments for better communication and services. The term'IoT' is, instead, attributed to Kevin Ashton, whose desire was to teach computers to'sense things' and communicate them back in the 1990s. This Internet-based connectedness of daily-life objects is the reality of modern tech design and the premise of building a smart home or city that integrates physical, digital and human systems.
