10 steps to achieve AI implementation in your business

#artificialintelligence

AI technologies are quickly maturing as a viable means to enabling and supporting essential business functions. But creating business value from artificial intelligence requires a thoughtful approach that balances people, processes and technology. AI comes in many forms: machine learning, deep learning, predictive analytics, natural language processing, computer vision and automation. Companies must first start with a solid foundation and realistic view to determine the competitive advantages that an AI implementation can bring to their business strategy and planning. "Artificial intelligence encompasses many things, and there is a lot of hyperbole and in some cases exaggeration about how intelligent it really is," said John Carey, managing director at business management consultancy AArete.

With the latest advancements in artificial intelligence (AI), achieving human-like intelligence is gradually transitioning to the realm of possibility. And with disruptors like the Covid-19 pandemic ravaging the global economy, the race to achieve artificial general intelligence may have sped up significantly. I would like to share some insights on the challenges and opportunities intertwined with the path to achieving AGI and the future ahead. What is artificial general intelligence? Artificial intelligence can be broadly categorized into three main types: artificial narrow intelligence (ANI), artificial general intelligence (AGI) and artificial superintelligence (ASI).

#artificialintelligence

The Software Report is pleased to announce The Top 100 Software Companies of 2021. This year's awardee list is comprised of a wide range of companies from the most well-known such as Microsoft, Adobe, and Salesforce to the relatively newer but rapidly growing - Qualtrics, Atlassian, and Asana. A good number of awardees may be new names to some but that should be no surprise given software has always been an industry of startups that seemingly came out of nowhere to create and dominate a new space. Software has become the backbone of our economy. From large enterprises to small businesses, most all rely on software whether for accounting, marketing, sales, supply chain, or a myriad of other functions. Software has become the dominant industry of our time and as such, we place a significance on highlighting the best companies leading the industry forward. The following awardees were nominated and selected based on a thorough evaluation process. Among the key criteria considered were ...


IoT 2.0? Machine learning and AI services worth €3 bn in revenue in 2026

#artificialintelligence

Simultaneously, the value in the technology stack is shifting beyond the hardware and middleware to analytics and value-added services, such as machine learning and other kinds of AI. ABI Research estimates that machine learning and AI services in the IoT domain will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 40%, to $3.6 billion (€3.04 billion) in 2026. While COVID-19 impacted many industries, the IoT data analytics market has been less affected. In fact, many newly emerging cloud-native, data-enabled analytics vendors have benefited from COVID-19. "Since industries are transitioning to'remote everything', out-of-the-box solutions for remote monitoring, asset management, asset visibility, and predictive maintenance are in high demand and exemplify market acceleration. "Vendors, such as DataRobot, are now easing access to ML and AI tool sets through different deployment options at the edge, on-premises, and the cloud, and through consumption using Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS)," explains Kateryna Dubrova, Research Analyst at ABI Research. "All and all, the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of rapid deployment solutions, such as hardware agnostic SaaS." Companies like AWS, C3, and Google also have been successful in promoting their products and analytics capabilities (tool sets and environment) by creating centralized repositories for COVID-19 data. Currently, these data lakes are public and are not monetised, but ABI Research expects those companies will attempt to use the data lakes to create products for sale to the healthcare market in the future. From a technology perspective, the data lakes could be the first step for creating and testing data visibility, and streaming analytics services. COVID-19 has showcased the public cloud's healthcare industry ambitions expanding into pharmaceutical, biomedicine, and telemedicine. Big data and data analytics might not have a remedy for the virus, but IoT-data enabled technologies proved essential to lessen public anxiety, to monitor patients, and prepare the infrastructure for new outbreaks. "AI and ML usage has accelerated during the pandemic – however, greenfield AI projects have seen a significant slowdown.


This AI Asks Questions, Finds Answers And Suggests Actions, All At Scale

The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed to us a very inconvenient truth: Regardless of all the technological advances of the last century and a half, our lives can be stopped and destroyed suddenly and unexpectedly by an invisible plague. The excitement over the most recent technological breakthrough--artificial intelligence or deep learning--has met the grim reality of our inability to adequately prepare for, manage, and overcome society's most important and consequential challenges. While Google's DeepMind set itself up to "solve intelligence," i.e., to advance the state of AI and then use the hoped-for "superior intelligence" to solve humanity's challenges, Sagie Davidovich and Ron Karidi co-founded SparkBeyond 7 years ago "to harness the world's collective intelligence in order to solve the world's toughest challenges." They aimed to use existing AI, algorithms, and knowledge to advance humanity's problem-solving capabilities. Most important, SparkBeyond wanted to go beyond the typical use of AI which is basically an extension and an upgrade of what has been called "predictive analytics" before the 2010s.


Transform the insurance industry with big data, machine learning and AI - Illinois News Today

Businesses that ensure protection from financial losses and mitigate risk are as old as human civilization. The Code of Hammurabi, King of Babylon, written in 1750-1755 BC, specified the first provision of what we now know as marine insurance. In the wake of the Great Fire of London in 1666, Sir Christopher Wren included the provision of an "insurance office" in his new plan for the city of London. Today, the global insurance market is estimated to be a $ 5,550,310 million industry consisting of major commercial life insurance, non-life insurance, health insurance and health insurance companies. Against this backdrop, a new wave of "InsurTech" solution companies is exploring transformation of the insurance business through the introduction of big data, machine learning and AI capabilities.

Top Priorities for Finance Leaders in 2021

#artificialintelligence

Sixty-nine percent of board directors say that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are accelerating their digital business initiatives. The challenge for CFOs is how to fund digitalization and growth while maintaining control over their organization's finances -- even when operating conditions remain highly volatile. This dual mandate for 2021 is clear in the priorities cited by CFOs, controllers, and heads of financial planning and analysis (FP&A) in Gartner year-end surveys. Finance leaders also noted that many of their priorities for 2021 will be time-consuming, and few will be easy to accomplish. "CFOs have been asking more and more about artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, robotics and advanced analytics," says Alex Bant, Chief of Research, Finance, Gartner. "2021 is the year to pivot from discussions about the future to making real investments, seeing short-term wins and cost off-set, and having a clear plan for the future."
