Why Safeway grocery clerks worry about artificial intelligence


Consider the grocery clerks at two Safeway stores in the San Francisco Bay Area. A few weeks ago, over 200 workers who are members of the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 5 (UFCW5) union picketed a Safeway store in San Jose, Calif. to voice concerns about a push by parent company Albertsons to add more A.I to its operations. Albertsons recently partnered with the startup Takeoff Technologies to create mini warehouses where computer vision technology automatically sorts items that shoppers order online. Using A.I. reduces the need for Safeway staff to manually locate and grab items for delivery--workers now just retrieve the finalized orders from a conveyor belt and sign off on them for eventual delivery. Several grocery store chains are investing heavily in micro-fulfillment centers after Amazon helped to popularize as-fast-as-you-can deliveries, said Andrew Lipsman, a principal analyst at research firm eMarketer.

ServiceNow adds artificial intelligence features to its business software - Reuters


ServiceNow, based in Santa Clara, California, and led by former SAP SE Chief Executive Officer Bill McDermott, makes software used by large companies to handle requests for help to their information technology departments, among other uses. The newest version of its software, called "Orlando," aims to use artificial intelligence to ease common tasks, company officials said. For example, if an employee needs to reset a password to access human resources software, the person can talk to a virtual assistant in the ServiceNow system that can ask a few questions and reset the password automatically. The system uses a technology called natural language processing to understand the request, said Dave Wright, ServiceNow's chief innovation officer. "You only need to have that one conversation - you don't need to know how to change your password for 20 different systems," Wright told Reuters in an interview.

Can Tesla Beat Google and Uber to Self-Driving Car Dominance? The Motley Fool

That's all an engineer from one major Japanese automaker could say after seeing the central control unit for Tesla's (NASDAQ:TSLA) Autopilot technology, extracted during Nikkei Business Publications' recent teardown (an investigative disassembling of tech hardware) of a Model 3. Japanese automakers might not be able to match Tesla's self-driving technological achievements, but that doesn't make Tesla the leader by default. Other companies, most notably Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Waymo unit, have been hard at work on self-driving vehicle technology for years. And while Elon Musk may have the world's attention, Tesla simply doesn't possess as many resources to throw at the self-driving problem as the techies in Mountain View, California.

Data Transparency and Curation Vital to Success of Healthcare AI


Amid advances in precision medicine, healthcare is facing the twin challenges of having to curate and tailor the use of patient data to drive genomics-powered breakthroughs. That was the takeaway from the AI & data sciences track of last week's Precision Medicine World Conference in Santa Clara, California. "There aren't a lot of physicians saying, 'Bring me more AI,' " said John Mattison, MD, emeritus CMIO and assistant medical director of Kaiser Permanente. "Every physician is saying bring me a safer and more efficient way to deliver care." Mattison recalled his prolonged conversations with the original developers of IBM's Watson AI technology.
