Responding to COVID-19 with AI and machine learning

#artificialintelligence

Today I published a perspective paper on COVID-19. The paper is co-authored with members of the Cambridge Centre for AI in Medicine (which I recently founded and I am directing), and calls on governments and healthcare authorities to use proven AI and machine learning techniques and existing data to coordinate a response to the disease. If you'd like to ask me about the paper or discuss it further, please leave a question/comment below, and I'll get back to you. I've also provided a link to the full paper at the bottom of this post. Both the UK and the international community are still in the early stages of a crisis that will see an unbelievable amount of pressure put on social and healthcare infrastructure.

#artificialintelligence

The next 10 years look just as topsy-turvy. Artificial intelligence and machine learning promise to change the competitive landscape for many companies. At the same time, talented professionals will continue to demand more from their jobs through increased calls for transparency around pay and fairness and more flexibility in work-life balance. It's a lot for companies to navigate, and they're struggling with it: an analysis by Korn Ferry of more than 150,000 leadership profiles shows that only 15% of business leaders today have the right blend of skills to be the leaders of tomorrow. But such disruption can be a boon to workers who are agile and forward thinking.
