Artificial intelligence is the next frontier in mankind's race to develop autonomous technologies. So far, there have been major breakthroughs in this particular field and most of them involve the use of deep learning algorithms that seek to build powerful systems for multiple purposes. In the specific case of financial technology, algorithms have the power to expedite multiple processes in areas such as lending, accounting, investing, and spend management. Mesh Payments is a developer of spend management software that is working hard to incorporate AI into its software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions to keep helping businesses to better manage their finances. In this article, we explore how AI can enhance an organization's financial processes and what role spend management will play in achieving this particular goal. First, let's dig a bit deeper into the basics of artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence already is part of our everyday lives: in our web searches, in our interactions with digital assistants, and even helping us decide what movies and TV shows to watch. In the world of worker safety, AI is providing "great opportunities." "Not only will it be in the fabric of the future of work, but it's going to be in the fabric of solutions to the future of work as well," Vietas said during a webinar hosted by the agency in June. Some of the benefits AI is providing to the safety field: deeper insights, continuous observations and real-time alerts to help employees avoid unsafe situations and organizations respond to incidents quicker. Experts say making use of AI requires collaborative efforts between safety professionals and other departments, namely information technology, to ensure transparency as well as alleviate privacy concerns and other issues workers may have.
The factory of the future, machine learning, and digital twin are just a few of the terms that are popping up in the manufacturing sector's path toward digital transformation. There are endless perspectives and definitions on these topics but very little on how to approach these as a strategy. "The Factory of the Future" digital panel, hosted by Librestream's Neal Tomblyn and Dan Flynn, with Lockheed Martin's Sr. Program Manager for Advanced Technology Solutions Corey Cook, will help explain the challenges aerospace manufacturers are currently facing, how they are meeting and solving these now and into the future, and some of the technologies that are helping to make it possible. Presenters Neal Tomblyn, former Lockheed Martin Executive and Librestream Senior Advisor, Aerospace and Defense, has more than 40 years of extensive leadership transforming and creating growth for Aerospace and Defense businesses both domestically and internationally with start-ups to Fortune 50 companies. After retiring from Lockheed Martin Corp. in December of 2019, Tomblyn formed Ingenius Partners LLC where his focus is on creating growth environments and opportunities for early-stage disruptive technology and solution companies supporting digital transformation.
Circa is excited to welcome Keith E. Sonderling, Commissioner, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) at 11 a.m. Circa collaborates with industry experts to provide monthly educational webinars focused on trends in, diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace, talent acquisition, and OFCCP compliance. One of the trends that continues to be seen for talent acquisition is redefining what top talent looks like as well as where and how employers are sourcing that talent. Employers are looking for new technologies and many are turning to AI to not only help with recruitment and retention but also to ensure they are making efficient and effective decisions. While AI has been around for a while, many employers still have some fear and unease with the use of AI because of the uncertainty of how it is used in the marketplace today.
The enormous advantages of AI have a prominent impact on video conferencing, webcasting, and live streaming applications. Deemed growth of digital technology and the rapid evolution of digital platforms unfolded never-ending demands to meet end-user perceptions. Satisfying these needs will help the webcasting and live streaming platforms into a fully automated solution with the utmost competitive advantage. But the question for many of the service providers is how to integrate AI to this solution that can scale and automate according to user needs. The live streaming & Webcasting market is developing like never before.

"Our recommendation is, basically, try to understand AI and try to see how it can work for you," said Houshang Darabi, a professor at the University of Illinois Chicago and co-director of the occupational safety program at the school's Great Lakes Center for Occupational Health and Safety.
The Council of Europe is taking part in the third edition (online) of the "Athens Roundtable on Artificial Intelligence and the Rule of Law" on 6 and 7 December. Organised by the Future Society and ELONTech under the Patronage of the President of the Hellenic Republic, Katerina Sakellaropoulou, the event is co-hosted by UNESCO, the Council of Europe, the European Parliament's Panel on the Future of Science and Technology (STOA), IEEE SA, the Center on Civil Justice at the NYU School of Law and the National Judicial College, among other institutions. The roundtable is designed to facilitate a participatory dialogue among key stakeholders on international AI policy developments and key AI standardisation and benchmarking initiatives in the US, Europe and beyond. It will also address important issues at the intersection of AI, industry, government and law, including civil liability regimes, regulatory compliance, privacy and consumer protection, and judicial capacity building. Council of Europe Secretary General Marija Pejčinović Burić is speaking at the opening.
