BEAD - Converting commercial properties into intelligent digital buildings saving energy, reducing emissions

#artificialintelligence

The BEAD sensor device analyzes and learns the daily use cycle, energy consumption, user behavior and occupancy changes in all kinds of buildings, and then provides feedback to its automation systems, connecting them to the real-time operation of the building in order to optimize marketing, operations, and energy efficiency. Energy consumption in buildings currently accounts for over 40% of all energy consumed in Europe and the US. This makes for the largest share of the total energy consumption, ahead of transport and industrial production. Europe alone wastes over EUR 43 billion worth of energy in commercial buildings annually. The reason for this is that traditional automation technologies operate on fixed schedules and standard assumptions of occupancy in commercial and residential buildings.


How IoT, AI, & Blockchain Empower Tomorrow's Autonomous Supply Chain

#artificialintelligence

The internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and blockchain are having a media moment, especially in the context of the supply chain. For instance, IDC predictsone-third of all manufacturing supply chains will be using analytics-driven cognitive capabilities – a version of AI – by the end of 2020; increasing cost efficiency by 10% and service performance by 5%. Each of these technologies has the potential to shift global supply chains. Taken together, they have the power to completely revolutionize the process via the first truly'autonomous' supply chain. To understand the combined impact, it's important to examine each.


Humans and AI Create Winning Teams for Wealth Advisory Fintech Schweiz Digital Finance News - FintechNewsCH

#artificialintelligence

For banks, the capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI) have always been evident. The only question is when and how to implement them in a way that reaps the best returns. Banks, for instance, have always had large volumes of data, over which it performs monitoring, analysis and insights-generating functions. Yet AI now presents banks with a future worth considering: what will it look like for banks to integrate advanced machine learning capabilities to help with all those processes? AI, with its wide spectrum of technologies could either remain a passing trend today or transform banking for ever.

If we learned anything from 2017 it's that no industry is immune to a downturn. However, "downturn" might be putting what happened in the retail market in 2017 lightly. According to a Credit Suisse report, when 2017 came to a close, approximately 6,800 stores will have shut permanently, setting a new, ominous record. While there may be a strong correlation between the rise of ecommerce giants such as Amazon and Walmart and this downturn, the reality is a little more complicated. All of the above are compounded by the fact that ecommerce teams have to deliver an Omni-channel experience without negatively impacting sales margins.


Fears of bots in the workplace are likely overblown

#artificialintelligence

Journalists have expended a lot of ink covering AI's potential to eliminate jobs. Examples cited include autonomous vehicles, machines that read X-rays and search for new drugs, and algorithm-driven bots that respond to customer service inquiries. Along with a lot of hand-wringing, these advances have spurred increasingly serious discussions about the need to provide a guaranteed minimum income if there are no longer enough jobs to go around. Many headlines suggest that AI and related technologies will lead to a largely jobless future -- as detailed in a recent article on NBC News. And we are already seeing evidence of automation-induced job loss, with more on the way.


Top 10 Data Science Use Cases in Insurance

#artificialintelligence

The insurance industry is regarded as one of the most competitive and less predictable business spheres. It is instantly related to risk. Therefore, it has always been dependent on statistics. Nowadays, data science has changed this dependence forever. Now, insurance companies have a wider range of information sources for the relevant risk assessment.


Four Ways that AI Enables Insurers to Differentiate

#artificialintelligence

Insurance companies are generating more data than ever before, and the value of that data is rapidly increasing as new products are able to properly analyze and make use of it. Beyond traditional analytics, one way that data can deliver even more value for insurers is by introducing artificial intelligence (AI) to reduce cost and time spent, as well as to drive a better customer experience and smarter pricing decisions. AI has been a popular topic for tech companies lately, but its use will be critical for insurance companies going forward. In fact, according to a recent survey, 67 percent of insurance CXOs agree that AI is critical to their organization's ability to differentiate in the market. In my opinion, that differentiation will occur as a result of AI's ability to do four key things: First, the introduction of AI will require companies to build a solid data foundation, and employees will find themselves almost immediately capable of making better decisions with that one improvement alone.
