Artificial intelligence and automation are no longer the stuff of science fiction; they're a very real and growing presence in both the business and consumer landscape. For many companies, AI can streamline operations and improve decision-making with advanced data analysis. Automating routine tasks can also free staff up to work on bigger picture projects that can propel your business forward. Of course, if you're not ready for the AI revolution, you won't be able to reap its tremendous potential benefits. What's one way that companies can prepare for the AI and automation revolution?
Every organization seeks to build its digital wherewithal, but the challenges often boil down to where, with what. For even the most digitally-savvy enterprises (or maybe because they're so digitally advanced), it comes down to finding or developing people with the right skills to move things forward. An innovation culture can be very attractive.Photo: Joe McKendrick If anything, lack of skills is now the single greatest impediment to digital efforts, a recent study by Constellation Research of 81 organizations concludes. The study, co-authored by Courtney Sato and R. "Ray" Wang, identified digital transformation as focused on two technology initiatives: artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. AI investment surged in 2018, with 58 percent of respondents reporting they'll spend money on the technology -- up from 25 percent in the previous years survey.
In literature, characters that smoke are often described as haggard and older looking, with facial features that are associated with worn leather. While these depictions arguably carry over into reality, what is for certain is that the association between smoking, cancer, and cardiovascular disease is strong. Unfortunately, however, the connection between smoking and biological aging has been less clear. Yet, a new study from an international team of investigators led by scientists at Insilico Medicine may change how smoking is evaluated at the biochemical level. "In this study, we demonstrate for the first time that smoking status can be predicted using blood biochemistry and cell count results and the recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI)," the study authors explained.
It may be a new year, but digital is still evolving and getting bigger than ever! We predicted numerous digital trends to take place throughout 2018, such as Video and influencer marketing, voice technologies such as Amazon's Alexa took centre stage, where opinions varied. In this article, we look at the Digital Marketing trends to keep an eye out for in 2019. Artificial Intelligence Artificial Intelligence has been the talk of the digital world for the last few years now, and with many claiming it will take over the world, it has slowly started to creep into everyday jobs. Many fear it could take over the world of work soon and who's to say they're wrong?
Zego is a company that produces smart home management software and S2 Capital is specialized in purchasing and renovating under leased and poorly managed properties. Markets Insider reports Zego and S2 Capital are linking smart home devices in around 30,000 apartments over the next three years in cooperation with Amazon. Our partnership with S2 is a significant move and validation in the market and their subsequent collaboration with Amazon helps us make units more attractive to prospective residents while improving operational efficiencies for property owners. We are committed to bringing this technology to the masses, and with this news, it's clear smart home technology is no longer reserved for luxury homes and apartments. Zego's smart home management platform consists of a single mobile app that connects residents, property staff, in addition to a marketplace of products and local services.
"You have an agent, the robot, that is in a different category than humans," Italian cognitive psychologist Agnieszka Wykowska told the paper. "So you probably very easily engage in this psychological mechanism of social ostracism because it's an out-group member. That's something to discuss: the dehumanization of robots even though they're not humans." Wykowska blames anti-robot violence on what she calls "Frankenstein syndrome" -- the fear of unknown things that are somewhat like us, but different in uncanny ways. Wykowska told the Times about an incident, for instance, in which a colleague introduced robots to a kindergarten class.
San Francisco: Facebook on Sunday said that it will create an independent Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence (AI) with an initial grant of $7.5 million. In collaboration with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany, the institute will help advance the growing field of ethical research on new technology and will explore fundamental issues affecting the use and impact of AI. "The institute will conduct independent, evidence-based research to provide insight and guidance for society, industry, legislators and decision-makers across the private and public sectors," said Joaquin Quinonero Candela, Director, Applied Machine Learning, at Facebook. The institute will address issues that affect the use and impact of AI, such as safety, privacy, fairness and transparency. "At the TUM Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence, we will explore the ethical issues of AI and develop ethical guidelines for the responsible use of the technology in society and the economy," said Professor Dr Christoph Lutge. The institute will also benefit from Germany's position at the forefront of the conversation surrounding ethical frameworks for AI "including the creation of government-led ethical guidelines on autonomous driving" and its work with European institutions on these issues.
What role will AI play in cervical cancer screening? Will artificial intelligence, otherwise known as AI, soon be at your cervix to help prevent and detect cancer? A study recently published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute showed how AI could serve as an extra eye to help doctors find pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions in the part of your body that connects your vagina with your uterus. As I've written previously for Forbes, each year cervical cancer kills around 265,000 women worldwide,but a majority of deaths could be quite preventable. Besides getting the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine, the key to preventing cervical cancer is getting regular pelvic exams so that concerning lesions can be caught early.
In an inexorably digitized world, cyber attacks are growing in volume, ending up considerably more complicated. With more organizations utilizing the web for their very own focal points, cybercriminals are searching for approaches to infiltrate security safeguards. Artificial intelligence gives instant insights so that organizations can come to an obvious conclusion regarding dangers significantly more effectively, lessening response times and making a business' security more compliant. Machine learning, then again, is an algorithm fit for perceiving designs in new information with the goal that the machine can learn as a matter of fact. Artificial intelligence text analysis enhances the capacity to monitor and distinguish criminal movement.
