How you can create value in an intelligent health ecosystem

#artificialintelligence

The health care revolution is not just an opportunity but an urgent and essential need. Our existing health care models are not sustainable in the long run. The cost of health spending continues to rise with the rapid worldwide growth of costly chronic diseases. Meanwhile, the global health care workforce faces a predicted shortfall of 18 million health workers by 2030, a gap which will accelerate the necessary adoption of digital technologies. Yet while these trends are widely acknowledged, health care organizations and stakeholders need to recognize that we now also have the tools for transformation, which will not only drive efficacy of care and personalization, but also, and equally importantly, better access and efficiency.


There Is Something Extremely Wrong With The Texas Shooting Massacre Narrative - The Washington County Auditor

#artificialintelligence

We aren't saying that the massacre didn't happen in Texas and in no way would ever be able to write words that would ease the pain of those parents and family members of the slain children in the Texas Massacre. What is wrong with the narrative is something you probably hadn't heard yet despite the relentless media coverage of the massacre. What would you think If you learned that the school district that the shooting occurred in had Artificial Intelligence Software, that is sold commercially, that is meant to monitor social media for threats of violence against schools and the students. That is exactly what was in place in Uvalde, Texas when the shooting occurred. Worse yet, the software company lists threats of school shootings as one of the features the artificial intelligence is designed to catch before a mass shooting has occurred. In theory, the software catches these threats and reports them to law enforcement so they can respond in time to prevent the tragedy or at least help save as many lives as possible.


The best smart lights you can buy

Engadget

One of the best places to start when building a smart home ecosystem is smart lights. Not only are they relatively affordable compared to other IoT gadgets, often costing between $10 and $50 a bulb, but they can also completely change the feel of your home. You can go from boring and analogue to colorful and automated within minutes, and there are endless possibilities when it comes to creating funky-colored light scenes, setting schedules and more. But like the rest of the smart home space over the last few years, there are now more players in smart lighting than ever before. We tested out some of the most popular smart lights on the market and found that most of them are quite good, but there are differences in compatibility, color quality and mobile app usability that are worth considering before deciding which system will be right for your home.


Machine Learning in Python for Cryptocurrency Trading

#artificialintelligence

It is a comprehensive course that shows how you can build a stylish web app with machine learning at the backend to predict the future price of any cryptocurrency. The main course has a mini crash course on Python for newbies and culminates into the theory and practice of Machine Learning and its predictive modeling application on cryptocurrencies. At the end of this course, you will be able to develop a full-fledged web app that will take in data (available for free on the Internet). As you will provide the data to the web app, the web app having its predictive machine learning model at the backend will spit out the future prices of a cryptocurrency. The course includes all the code for the web app, and with a tiny tuning in the code, you can adjust the web app to predict the prices of any cryptocurrency.


Meta Builds New AI Platform to Create More-Realistic Avatars

#artificialintelligence

Facebook parent company Meta said it's created a new AI platform that builds realistic simulations of the muscles, bones and joints that enable humans to move. Studying the human body's musculoskeletal system could help Meta create more-realistic avatars in virtual worlds. The social media giant is challenging researchers to improve these models. Facebook parent company Meta said Monday that it's created a new artificial intelligence platform that could help the social media giant develop more-realistic avatars for virtual worlds. Today, avatars that exist in digital spaces look like cartoons and don't move as fluidly as humans do in real life. Meta thinks the key to improving these avatars could be in learning more about the bones, muscles and joints that make up the human body's musculoskeletal system.


Interactive Packaging: How to Make Packaging Smarter with AI and IoT - DataScienceCentral.com

#artificialintelligence

Today, Packaging is not just about covering a product for a better sale. Interactive packaging is a new trend in the packaging industry which mainly focuses on customer satisfaction and engagement. BLE codes, AI, and IoT are key technologies in interactive packaging which is helping users with the product attributes and user instructions. Also, Incorporation of RFID labels and NFC innovation helps in decreasing the operational and strategic cost. The utilization of interactive packaging to carry product branding to another level is filling the development as it makes a physical and a visual effect on the customer.


Artificial Intelligence in Web Design (Special Edition)

#artificialintelligence

In the beginning website, design developers and designers designed websites using HTML. Soon, the internet was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep web, and the Spirit of Code was hovering over the pinnacle of utmost ignorance. We've come a long way from that time. The internet is still a dark, dreadful place, but it's much more stylish, sophisticated, and amazing now. Website Design has grown exponentially in scale and sophistication over the last few years, thanks to new Artificial Intelligence-based website creation tools that are dominating the digital marketing industry.


The case for placing AI at the heart of digitally robust financial regulation

#artificialintelligence

"Data is the new oil." Originally coined in 2006 by the British mathematician Clive Humby, this phrase is arguably more apt today than it was then, as smartphones rival automobiles for relevance and the technology giants know more about us than we would like to admit. Just as it does for the financial services industry, the hyper-digitization of the economy presents both opportunity and potential peril for financial regulators. On the upside, reams of information are newly within their reach, filled with signals about financial system risks that regulators spend their days trying to understand. The explosion of data sheds light on global money movement, economic trends, customer onboarding decisions, quality of loan underwriting, noncompliance with regulations, financial institutions' efforts to reach the underserved, and much more. Importantly, it also contains the answers to regulators' questions about the risks of new technology itself. Digitization of finance generates novel kinds of hazards and accelerates their development. Problems can flare up between scheduled regulatory examinations and can accumulate imperceptibly beneath the surface of information reflected in traditional reports. Thanks to digitization, regulators today have a chance to gather and analyze much more data and to see much of it in something close to real time. The potential for peril arises from the concern that the regulators' current technology framework lacks the capacity to synthesize the data. The irony is that this flood of information is too much for them to handle.
