Virtual Healthcare Is The Future – If Organizations Can Clear These Hurdles


Many healthcare organizations are working on advancing virtual care options. That said, the path to ... [ ] digital healthcare transformation is bumpy. Covid-19 forced healthcare organizations to make a huge leap forward in their digital transformation roadmaps. Although many companies had plans on the books to advance telemedicine, the crisis revealed that virtual care is not only possible but in many cases is also preferred by patients. Virtual care also offers an opportunity to enhance patient experience, improve population health, reduce costs and improve the work life of health care providers -- the quadruple aim of healthcare. "To improve patient outcomes, we have to involve a patient's family and significant others in their care, because it must extend beyond the four walls of the hospital," says Dr. Reetu Singh, senior medical director, clinical documentation integrity at AdventHealth.

A New Era for Mechanical CAD

Communications of the ACM

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) has been around since the 1950s. The first graphical CAD program, called Sketchpad, came out of MIT ( Since then, CAD has become essential to designing and manufacturing hardware products. Today, there are multiple types of CAD. This article focuses on mechanical CAD, used for mechanical engineering. Digging into the history of computer graphics reveals some interesting connections between the most ambitious and notorious engineers. Ivan Sutherland, who received the Turing Award for Sketchpad in 1988, had Edwin Catmull as a student.

Twitter round-up: Ronald van Loon's tweet on robotic tiles the most popular tweet in August 2021


Verdict lists five of the most popular tweets on disruptive tech in August 2021 based on data from GlobalData's Influencer Platform. The top tweets were chosen from influencers as tracked by GlobalData's Influencer Platform, which is based on a scientific process that works on pre-defined parameters. Influencers are selected after a deep analysis of the influencer's relevance, network strength, engagement, and leading discussions on new and emerging trends. Ronald van Loon, principal and CEO of the Intelligent Network, an influencer network that connects businesses and experts with new audiences, shared a video on robotic floor tiles that can provide an immersive virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (VR) experience. The tiles can automatically position themselves beneath a person's feet by anticipating their steps and creating the illusion of walking.

Ring Video Doorbell 4 review: pre-roll is a battery bell gamechanger

The Guardian

The latest iteration of Amazon's battery-powered Ring doorbell adds a new feature to capture the early details of events most competitors would miss without needing to be plugged in. It tops Ring's battery-powered range, which starts at £89. The look and basic function of the Doorbell 4 is very similar to Ring's older models. It has a camera with night vision, motion sensors and a large doorbell button. When someone pushes the button Ring's signature chime plays and an alert is sent to your phone. You can view a live feed and speak through the doorbell using the app from anywhere with internet.

We have always wondered how life will transform in this world with the implementation of AI. Award-winning authors Chen Quifan and Kai-Fu Lee have presented the world with their new book AI 2041: Ten Visions for Our Future with the ten most interesting and enlightening chapters on September 14, 2021. All these chapters include an analysis of major disruptive technologies that are thriving in the tech-driven market like deep learning, big data, NLP, AI education, AI healthcare, virtual reality, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, quantum computers, and other issues. AI 2041 book presents a ground-breaking blend of imaginative storytelling as well as scientific forecasting on the basis of the development of the 21st century. It opens the minds of readers about the applications of artificial intelligence in multiple industries across the world.

2041 envisioned: AI-driven futures according to Kai-Fu Lee


The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) recently connected with pioneering artificial intelligence (AI) expert Kai-Fu Lee, former president of Google China, CEO of Sinovation Ventures, and co-author of the forthcoming book "AI 2041: Ten visions for our future." Here, Lee shares insights on how much – and how deeply – AI could shape our world in the decades to come. Kai-Fu Lee: Classic childhood companions like Barbie or GI Joe – once inanimate objects - will come to life on mobile phone screens, or through virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) glasses. This can help kids learn things in a fun way – like multiplication or division – before going into school. Or recast problems: math equations could become basketball games.

Four Ways AI, VR & AR Can Enhance Your Marketing


When you sit back and think about the changes that have been made in technology over the past few years, it is quite amazing. It was not that long ago that home phones were more common than mobile phones. However, now almost everyone has a mobile phone and many people do not have a landline. The same can be said for newer technologies such as Google Nest Audio or Amazon Alexa. Households that own a smart speaker state that using it has become an essential part of their day.

How AI Will Completely Change The Way We Live in the Next 20 Years


Artificial intelligence (AI) could be the most transformative technology in the history of mankind--and we may not even see much of this sweeping change coming. That's because we often overestimate what technologies can do in five years, and underestimate what they will be able to do in 20. As I've traveled the world talking about this subject, I'm constantly asked, "what will the future hold for humans and AI?" This is an essential question for this moment in history. Some believe that we're in the midst of an "AI bubble" that will eventually pop, or at least cool off.

How Do You Build a Better Machine? You Can Use Artificial Intelligence


As industrial machines are becoming more connected and flexible, the process of building and commissioning the machine is also getting smarter. Machines are built now using artificial intelligence, digital twins, and augmented reality. We caught up with Rahul Garg, VP of industrial machinery and mid-market program at Siemens Digital Industries Software. Garg explained the process of creating smart industrial machines using advanced technology. Design News: Is artificial intelligence becoming a major factor in building industrial machines?

TulsaLabs To Develop Personalized Health Analytics Utilizing Artificial Intelligence


AppSwarm, Corp. a software development company and aggregator of mobile applications, announced it has been retained by GTX Corp a pioneer in wearable technology and the health and safety wearable device market, to develop'health analytics' utilizing artificial intelligence (A.I.) to assist in potentially extending the human life span. Health data analytics, also known as clinical data analytics, involves the extrapolation of actionable insights from sets of patient data, typically collected from electronic devices, such as wearables. Wearables can be employed from different body parts such as head-based, foot-based, eye-based, and wrist-based. Some examples of wearable data include steps taken, food and water intake, calories burned, sleep movement, and breathing. TulsaLabs will utilize data generated from wearable devices and sensors to develop cloud-based analytics that will monitor and analyze a user's health data through long-term dataset development, utilizing artificial intelligence.
