The Future Starts With Industrial AI - AI Summary

#artificialintelligence

Industrial digital transformation is critical to achieving new levels of safety, sustainability, and profitability--and "Industrial AI" is a key enabler of that change. Organizations are switching their focus from mass data accumulation to strategic industrial data management, homing in on data integration, mobility, and accessibility--with the goal of using AI-enabled technologies to unlock value hidden in these unoptimized and underutilized sets of industrial data. The rise of the digital executive (chief technology officer, chief data officer, and chief information officer) as a driver of industrial digital transformation has been a key influence on this trend. This has fueled the need for "Industrial AI," a new paradigm that combines data science and AI algorithms with software and domain expertise to deliver measurable business outcomes for the specific needs of capital-intensive industries. Industrial AI disrupts these industries by lowering barriers to adoption, offering new opportunities for industrial organizations to significantly reduce costs, improve efficiency, and transform their operations for the better.

How to Leverage AI and Hyper-Personalization Precision Marketing

#artificialintelligence

In today's age of Big Data and rapid technological growth, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing how business-to-business (B2B) marketers engage with their target accounts. But while some organizations are seizing the opportunity, many still have a long way to go. For example, a recent Forrester report shows that 88% of marketers have used AI. Less than half, however, say technology is helping them meet their objectives, and only 15% of enterprises are effectively using AI to enhance the customer experience. In addition, according to a survey by Demandbase, Salesforce Pardot and Demand Metric, while there is strong interest in AI – with 84% of Sales and Marketing professionals currently planning, evaluating, implementing or using AI – 40% of respondents are not aware of or fully taking advantage of existing AI capabilities in their vendor-supplied technologies.


Are You Ready to Manage Digital Labor?

#artificialintelligence

During Aragon Research's research community meeting this week, Jim and I were discussing what it will take to manage your workforce in the future; a hybrid mixture of humans and digital labor. The discussion got us thinking about what it means to manage technology versus what it takes to manage people, and how this will change as organizations introduce AI-enabled technologies. In this blog, we explore the differences and similarities between managing humans and technology to understand how management will change as we introduce technologies that can learn, recognize patterns, and change/respond. Digital labor is a term that applies to the automation of tasks that are performed by computer applications. Our future workforce will be a hybrid combination of humans and AI-enabled technologies (i.e., bots, assistants, robotics, etc.), supported by traditional non-AI technology.


The race to responsible artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Chances are you've heard of artificial intelligence, which has found widespread adoption in our popular culture. Generally speaking, AI is a set of computer algorithms that can learn to make decisions without human intervention. That's AI, though I think we can all agree there is some room for improvement in that arena. It's fun to ponder what technological wizardry AI will offer future generations. Where it becomes daunting, however, is when we consider its long-term global implications and the structure necessary to harness its development.


Why AI is Important to Seniors and Their Family Caregivers

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is everywhere at CES 2019 and may be the hottest topic in conference sessions and on the exhibit floor. There are 490 exhibitors in the directory under the heading "Artificial Intelligence" and it seems like most of the other 4,000 are talking about it as well. With all the benefits of AI being touted for independent-living seniors -- well, for everyone, really -- it's enough to cause a conscientious family caregiver to say "I have to go buy an AI for my senior loved one." Then again, many of the technology devices, appliances, cars, smartphones and more we buy in the future will have AI in them -- and that will be a good thing. Strike that, it will be a GREAT thing.


How Real-Time AI is Accelerating the Disruption of Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

What do you think will drive more disruption and the use of AI? Satish Maripuri: Disruption comes from bringing organizations together across industries with a unique combination of capabilities to drive change. In the case of AI, we look for partnerships inside and outside of healthcare that can drive innovation effectively and more quickly create value. Right now, we are focused on some unique AI-related partnerships that allow radiologists to be the technology trailblazers they always have been. Radiologists began trailblazing technology with the introduction of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) more than 20 years ago. Today, the latest advancements in radiology are highly receptive to the power of AI to improve productivity and accuracy while reducing the repetitive tasks that lead to burnout.


AI Ethics - Abhishek Gupta

#artificialintelligence

At District 3, my research is focused on assessing the labor impacts of AI-enabled automation in the financial services industry in Quebec, Canada. At McGill University, I'm building out an introductory curriculum via a 4-part workshop series to introduce the topic of the ethical development of AI to students, faculty, staff and alumni of the McGill community. I'm also actively researching the impacts of AI-enabled technologies pervading the field of medicine, especially on how this affects doctors in training and impacts on different fields where AI systems are doing well on narrowly defined domains. I founded the meetup group on AI Ethics in Montreal that meets once every two weeks to do a deep dive on different aspects of the ethical development of AI. We also work together as a community to provide feedback and recommendations to public documents like the Montreal Ethical AI Declaration. The group consists of members with diverse backgrounds like computer science, law, sociology, business, policy, etc.


AI-enabled technologies could help museums survive the digital age

#artificialintelligence

By definition, museums store and display objects of historical, scientific, artistic, or cultural significance. Want to see dinosaur skeletons, medical oddities, Civil War weapons, or Renoir masterpieces? But without relatability and modern storytelling, even the most captivating exhibits can be, well, a bit stuffy and boring. Especially for young people who are used to rich, complex multimedia experiences. If museums want to remain engaging and relevant in changing times, it makes sense that they would adopt new technology trends to elevate their purpose.


4 Common AI Myths & How to Combat Each [Experts Weigh In] Emarsys

#artificialintelligence

There are too many myths circling around artificial intelligence (AI) and its role in marketing. It's slanderous (to the technology industry) to denounce AI as only hype, and incorrect to assume AI is a fabrication coined by companies aiming to drum up publicity for what's merely a machine learning, deep learning, or automation tool. Most tech experts agree that, by 2050, AI will almost certainly handle the vast majority of routine marketing execution. And while AI won't necessarily take your job, it already is and will continue to augment the level of intelligence marketers operate with, the insights they can attain, and the kind of incredibly individualized communication they're are able to deliver to customers. What's clear is that artificial intelligence – as a marketing tool – is already being used by e-commerce companies to gain a competitive advantage.
