Reimagining the Delivery of Health Care to Create Resiliency


For guidance on how healthcare organizations can leverage connected health technologies to support care anywhere initiatives and create a better experience for healthcare providers and patients, join us for the webinar, Driving Patient-Centric Care: Innovating Drug Development and Care Delivery with Connected Health Technologies, live on July 20 at 11 am EDT. COVID-19 showed how resourceful healthcare and life science organizations could be in the midst of a global pandemic. As the science of how the coronavirus worked and how to contain it evolved, those on the front line had to respond quickly to make course corrections. In many ways, they were fixing the plane while flying it. This was no small feat with so many lives on the line including patients, direct care health providers, first responders, and staff.

Role and Importance of AI in Supply Chain Management


Supply chain management has become a vital strategic opportunity to keep organizations competitive and this statement has taken even more precedence due to the current pandemic situation that the world is facing. The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in some sort of supply chain disruption related to transportation restrictions created by the lockdown and the economic impact caused by it will be felt for months to come. But at the same time, there has been a sudden increase in the adoption of digital technologies like algorithm development, data analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, the internet of things, and cloud computing to make supply chain management ever-evolving. Artificial Intelligence with the help of automated technology processes a large amount of data within few minutes to provide business-based insightful information. AI is already beginning to change the face of the supply chain industry.

This High Schooler Created a Drug Discovery Search Engine


Between his mom's place in Manhattan, his dad in Queens, and his high school in the Bronx, Noah Getz is on the subway a lot. It gives him time to read and to think. Our first coronavirus summer was waning, and he'd been wrestling with a weighty science problem: using machine learning to hunt down tiny molecules that may help treat Alzheimer's. Thus far, his AI had been spitting out results that were "almost comically bad." The problem was that the algorithms Getz was using did their best when they had massive amounts of data to sift through and discover patterns in. Getz' data set was far smaller; he was working with one lab at Mount Sinai, not a multinational pharmaceutical company with a galaxy-sized drug library.

When his hobbies went on hiatus, this Kaggler made fighting COVID-19 with data his mission


Most medical articles have methods & results sections and matches in those sections are more important. I had little to no expectations entering this competition, so I wouldn't say I was surprised by anything. It was great to see so many smart and capable people all working together to try to help in whatever way they could. All of the work is driven by the Kaggle platform. The list of notebooks cover all the submissions for Round 1 and Round 2 of the CORD-19 challenge. All of the notebooks are in Python.

AI 50 2021: America's Most Promising Artificial Intelligence Companies


The Covid-19 pandemic was devastating for many industries, but it only accelerated the use of artificial intelligence across the U.S. economy. Amid the crisis, companies scrambled to create new services for remote workers and students, beef up online shopping and dining options, make customer call centers more efficient and speed development of important new drugs. Even as applications of machine learning and perception platforms become commonplace, a thick layer of hype and fuzzy jargon clings to AI-enabled software.That makes it tough to identify the most compelling companies in the space--especially those finding new ways to use AI that create value by making humans more efficient, not redundant. With this in mind, Forbes has partnered with venture firms Sequoia Capital and Meritech Capital to create our third annual AI 50, a list of private, promising North American companies that are using artificial intelligence in ways that are fundamental to their operations. To be considered, businesses must be privately-held and utilizing machine learning (where systems learn from data to improve on tasks), natural language processing (which enables programs to "understand" written or spoken language) or computer vision (which relates to how machines "see"). AI companies incubated at, largely funded through or acquired by large tech, manufacturing or industrial firms aren't eligible for consideration. Our list was compiled through a submission process open to any AI company in the U.S. and Canada. The application asked companies to provide details on their technology, business model, customers and financials like funding, valuation and revenue history (companies had the option to submit information confidentially, to encourage greater transparency). Forbes received several hundred entries, of which nearly 400 qualified for consideration. From there, our data partners applied an algorithm to identify 100 companies with the highest quantitative scores--and that also made diversity a priority. Next, a panel of expert AI judges evaluated the finalists to find the 50 most compelling companies (they were precluded from judging companies in which they have a vested interest). Among trends this year are what Sequoia Capital's Konstantine Buhler calls AI workbench companies--building of platforms tailored to different enterprises, including Dataiku, DataRobot Domino Data and Databricks.

How Data, Analytics & AI Shaped 2020, and Will Impact 2021 - InformationWeek


The IT enterprise may have started the year stalled on its efforts to deploy at scale production machine learning and artificial intelligence projects, but that didn't last long. The global pandemic's impact included serving as a catalyst to accelerate any number of IT projects for a new way of doing business, and those included AI and automation. The shift to working remotely for so many desk workers necessitated a change in how to do business, sure. But the shift to remote work coincided with a giant spike in demand for customer service and support. For instance, at the consumer bank, who was answering the incoming calls from customers about whether stimulus checks had arrived or cleared?

The key elements of healthcare will be technological innovations


In terms of healthcare technology, there has been a shift in recent years. In the healthcare industry, the pandemic has been the best accelerator of innovative technical implementations. To be sure, current technological advancements have helped the healthcare industry thrive. Beacons for crowd management and machine learning devices for disease detection and treatment approaches are just two examples of high-end technology that are now critical pieces of a healthcare unit. The medical staff has been able to devote more time to value-added tasks like thinking about how to improve patient care as a result of this adoption of modern technologies.

How Airlines Use AI To Streamline Operations, Save Fuel


"Thanks to AI, the airline saved 480,000 gallons of fuel in six months." When Greta Thunberg boarded a transatlantic zero-emissions yacht she garnered the attention of citizens of the world on the fact that aviation is a polluter of the environment that we continuously ignore. The giant industry is responsible for producing 915 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions along with other dangerous gases that cause environmental changes like cirrus clouds. These emissions constitute two percent of the world's greenhouse emissions. From the electrification of jets to biofuel many ideas have been suggested to make flying more eco friendly.

In year of isolation, this $3,000 telescope may have changed citizen astronomy forever


After a couple hours of sleep, Rachel Knight woke to an alarm set for 2 a.m. Her phone and Amazon Echo clamored in tandem to make sure she didn't sleep through the night. It was her turn to head out to the backyard and monitor the telescope. The Unistellar eVscope was pointed at the relatively clear sky over suburbs north of Los Angeles. It was mid-August, five months into the COVID-19 pandemic.
