3 Great Ways to Sabotage Your Digital Transformation - InformationWeek

#artificialintelligence

Digital transformation is all the rage, and with good reason. Markets are rapidly being disrupted by digital value propositions that change the rules of competition. So, if you don't leverage customer-obsessed, data-driven insights to deliver differentiated value, you'll probably lose out to competitors who can. Most of the hype around digital transformation, however, focuses on business models and technologies. On the technology side, the clamor is for artificial intelligence, blockchain, and the cloud.


Discovering The Power Of The Cloud For Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Business loves buzzwords, and there's been no bigger buzzword recently than artificial intelligence. AI, of course, lets companies optimize their operations, business models and customer experiences around data-driven insights, while developing products and services that align more closely with customer needs. Now that leading cloud service providers are providing AI-driven machine learning and deep learning training platforms--customized to business user data and accessed as cloud-hosted application programming interfaces--companies of all sizes can seize the benefits of AI. By offering an alternative to on-premise AI solutions, cloud providers are giving small businesses the same advantages their larger counterparts are looking to exploit. Among the valuable AI tools at their disposal are natural language processing, image recognition, translation, search functions and data analytics.


The Internet of Healthcare: A Future Beyond Digital Transformation

#artificialintelligence

Did you know that one-third of every dollar spent in healthcare today is used for high-volume and repetitive data-driven administrative processes? The challenge has grown from the digitization of the healthcare industry, but new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) may also prove to be the answer. I recently came across a company called Olive that builds artificial intelligence and RPA solutions that empower healthcare organizations to improve efficiency and patient care while reducing costly administrative errors. I invited Sean Lane, CEO and Co-Founder at Olive to share his expertise in and insights. Sean is a technology entrepreneur with a deep background in national security and healthcare.



Digital Transformation: The Role of Robotics & AI

#artificialintelligence

Ripcord hosted a robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) webinar on Jan 17, led by co-founder Kevin Hall, to discuss the role robotics play in digitization. Kasey Jones, BetterGrowth CEO, served as moderator. Topics discussed: -- A brief history of digitization and its evolution -- Solutions for digitizing unstructured content -- The way robotics provide flexibility in Ripcord's automation process Schedule a Ripcord demo today!


Impact of RPA on the Existing Workforce and Workplace

#artificialintelligence

With current technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics being democratized in everyday applications, the IT industry has almost successfully transitioned into the Digital Era. When talking about digitization, one idea most industry leaders agree upon is that automation is the need of the hour. Along with other new age technologies, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) too has made a mark in the IT industry and according to Gartner 85 percent of big organizations will have deployed some form of RPA by the year 2022. While RPA is meant to bring about efficiency and reduce errors made in mundane and tedious work done manually by humans, it does give rise to the question of will there be a loss of jobs in the IT industry due to democratization of RPA. Automation, a popular emerging technology has an assured place in the future of global businesses.

It's not enough to break up Big Tech. We need to imagine a better alternative Evgeny Morozov

The Guardian

As Facebook all but pleads guilty to a severe form of data addiction, confessing its digital sins and promising to reinvent itself as a privacy-worshiping denizen of the global village, the foundations of Big Tech's cultural hegemony appear to be crumbling. Most surprisingly, it's in the United States, Silicon Valley's home territory, where they seem to be the weakest. Even in these times of extreme polarization, Trump, who has habitual outbursts against censorship by social media platforms, eagerly joins left-wing politicians like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders in presenting Big Tech as America's greatest menace The recent call by Chris Hughes, Facebook's co-founder, to break up the firm hints at things to come. Neither the Silicon Valley moguls nor financial markets seem to care though. The recent decision by Warren Buffet – one of America's most successful but also most conservative investors –to finally invest in Amazon is probably a better indication of wait awaits the tech giants in the medium term: more lavish initial public offerings, more Saudi cash, more promises to apply artificial intelligence to resolve the problems caused by artificial intelligence.


What's Ahead for Manufacturing AI

#artificialintelligence

A new generation of point artificial intelligence solutions will prove themselves in the near future. They'll build new trust, urgency and understanding of what'AI' actually is and just how much it can deliver. Voice-driven solutions will lead the charge. And we'll see pick-and-place robots in smart warehouses delivering a major competitive edge, as companies advance their use of Robotic Process Automation. Here are my three key predictions for AI in manufacturing.


WHO CIO explains how AI can boost global health outcomes

#artificialintelligence

As CIO of the World Health Organisation (WHO), Bernardo Mariano is responsible for the IT strategy at a United Nations agency that aims to attain the highest possible level of health for all citizens in its 194 member states. His key objectives are to deliver the WHO's global strategy on digital health and to provide guidelines to countries on how to navigate their digital transformation journeys. "We will do that by bringing together all the national regulatory agencies from the countries that have them and then start discussing issues such as AI regulation and sharing our experiences," Mariano tells CIO UK from the AI Everything conference in Dubai. "Some agencies have already implemented digital strategies and others have not, so we have to cross-fertilise ideas among the different regulatory agencies to make sure that they all are able to deal with and handle the added power but also maintain the quality of the healthcare existing ecosystem." To help its member states to achieve this, the WHO recently released its first recommendations for digital health tech use.
