How financial institutions can start with artificial intelligence – now

#artificialintelligence

Noted FinTech author Chris Skinner suggests that AI and machine learning means banks must analyze and leverage customer data into actionable knowledge--but that's virtually impossible if your data is in disarray. AI is increasingly becoming the way for leading financial services to provide everything from customer service to investment advice, says PwC's Mike Quindazzi. "But before going down the path of building and implementing solutions leveraging AI and similar tools, financial institutions must ask themselves where they're falling short in regard to providing their customers true lifetime value around their finances," Leimer adds. Jay Palter is the chief engagement officer at Jay Palter Social Advisory, based in Calgary.


How Solution Providers Can Transform Their Customers' Businesses With AI

#artificialintelligence

Solution providers that are willing to inject artificial intelligence technologies into their customer's business processes could benefit from gaining more information, garnering better business outcomes. "You definitely will have to break down real-life examples for clients because it's hard to conceptualize AI," said John Hampton, manager of cloud services for Datotel, a St. Louis-based MSP, who was in attendance for Shaw's presentation. Remote monitoring and customer service applications are two areas where AI would bolster these offerings, Shaw told solution providers. While AI is still in its early days for most business customers and channel partners, Shaw believes that AI will follow a similar adoption curve as cloud computing.


Cybersecurity machine learning moves ahead with vendor push

#artificialintelligence

ESG research asked 412 respondents about their understanding of artificial intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity machine learning, which revealed that only 30% said they were very knowledgeable on the subject. "I find machine learning [and] AI technology extremely cool but no one is buying technology for technology sake. By joining CNCF, meantime, Microsoft is "shunning" Amazon in the enterprise cloud market. "Expect to see a lot more platform service rollouts involving containers, microservices, etc., later this year during fall conferences in which cloud rivals continue to attempt to one-up one another," Dunlap wrote.

HomePod Release Date: Apple May Have Shortages At Launch, Report Says

International Business Times

During an earnings conference call Monday, HomePod supplier Inventec Appliances gave further details about the new Apple device's launch schedule. Priced at $349, the home speaker features a combination of high-fidelity audio and Siri-powered connectivity designed to be an alternative to similar smart home speakers from companies like Google, Microsoft and Amazon. Amazon's Alexa, which debuted in 2014, has become a juggernaut for the online retailer thanks to the Echo series of smart home devices and Alexa's adoption by manufacturers for products ranging from TVs to home appliances. Due to Amazon's success, numerous competitors have entered the smart home speaker market in recent months.

Our Earth Formation Theories Could Be All Wrong, New Experiment Suggests

International Business Times

The researchers put their results about the distribution of Zn and S into computer models based on current theories of Earth's formation, but none of them models came close to showing the same sulfur-to-zinc ratio of the present-day mantle. The main subclass of these non-metallic stony meteorites (called chondrites as a category) that is thought to have made up Earth is called enstatite chondrites. "However, this new work indicates that the Earth needs to have formed from a more S-poor source; in terms of the geochemistry, the best candidate for this material is the metal rich CH chondrites," Mahan said in the statement. Referring to the amount of sulfur in the Earth's crust, as capped at 2 percent by "most leading estimates," Mahan said using known meteorites as a source for Earth's formation doesn't concur with currently accepted values, thereby precluding "any of the solar system materials that have previously been proposed" as the source material for Earth.


Microsoft Office Users Are Getting AI, But May Not Know It

#artificialintelligence

Over the past few years, Microsoft has quietly added a number of artificial intelligence (AI) features to Office 365, but my guess is that most Office users either don't know these features exist, or just take them for granted. Last year, Microsoft demonstrated a new option called Designer, in which PowerPoint can take a variety of slides you have and show you alternatives for different designs based on your content. Other interesting features in this vein include an option to generate alt-text that takes an image and runs it against a microservice so that visually impaired people can also follow along. Until recently, enterprise customers typically got updates three times a year; Microsoft recently announced it will now release these twice a year (targeting March and September).
