AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In a joint report, DHL, the world's leading logistics service provider, and IBM have evaluated the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in logistics and exposed how it can be best applied to transform the industry, giving rise to a new class of intelligent logistics assets and operational paradigms. DHL and IBM outline how supply chain leaders can take advantage of AI's key benefits and opportunities now that performance, accessibility as well as costs are more favourable than ever before. The collaborative report identifies implications and use cases of AI for the logistics industry, finding that AI has the potential to significantly augment human capabilities. While AI is already ubiquitous in the consumer realm, as demonstrated by the rapid growth of voice assistant applications, DHL and IBM find that AI technologies are maturing at great pace, allowing for additional applications for the logistics industry. These can, for instance, help logistics providers enrich customer experiences through conversational engagement and even deliver articles before the customer has even ordered them.
The major factors driving the growth of the AI in aviation market include the use of big data in the aerospace industry, significant increase in capital investments by aviation companies, and rising adoption of cloud-based applications and services in the aviation industry. However, limited number of experts in AI is restraining the growth of the AI in aviation market. AI-based virtual assistants help airline companies improve the productivity and efficiency of their pilots by reducing their recurring works, such as changing radio channels, reading wind forecasts, and providing position information on request, among others. These recurring jobs are taken care by AI-enabled virtual assistants. Companies such as Garmin (US) offer AI-enabled audio panels, which are useful for pilots.
Traders and financial professionals work at the opening bell on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). It's no secret on Wall Street that a "sell" recommendation in sell-side research reports is exceedingly rare, and it can't be chalked up to today's bull market recently surpassing its ninth birthday. According to FactSet data, only 6% of analyst recommendations on S&P 500 companies are "sell" ratings or the equivalent, lending credence to the notion that conflicts of interest persist despite reform efforts to make recommendations more objective in nature. Put simply, negative recommendations can place an analyst in the virtual penalty box when it comes to getting access to companies, and the effects are clear in a business where access is king. So, is there still use to looking through research reports to figure out which stocks are worth buying and selling?

NVIDIA's (NASDAQ: NVDA) graphics processing unit (GPU)-based approach to high-performance computing and deep learning, a category of artificial intelligence (AI) in which machines are trained to make inferences from data the way humans do, has begun making inroads into the global oil and gas industry. This is great news for investors, as this is a multitrillion-dollar industry that forms the foundation of the global economy. While renewable forms of energy have been steadily displacing fossil fuels to generate electricity and electric vehicles (EVs) have begun lessening the transportation industry's ravenous appetite for petroleum products, full transformations of these realms will take decades. Moreover, beyond being used to produce just about everything, oil derivatives are key ingredients in products ranging from plastics and fertilizers to the asphalt that paves our roads and the synthetic fibers that clothe many of us. In 2018, NVIDIA has announced two wins in the oil and gas space.
Google is not only applying machine learning across its products, but also encouraging other developers to adopt it in third-party services and other use cases. It has now emerged that one of the latter examples is for drones from the U.S. government.
