Microsoft and GOSH partner for artificial intelligence in healthcare

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft has announced a new partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) to support their research of artificial intelligence (AI). The One Microsoft partnership will see GOSH given access to new AI solutions developed by computer science students at University College London (UCL) as part of the Industry Exchange Network, which is run by UCL and Microsoft. A number of new ideas will be available to test by GOSH staff via Microsoft's cloud platform, Azure. This will be done though the hospital's Digital, Research, Informatics and Virtual Environments (DRIVE), a unit dedicated to research and evaluation of new technology and data analysis for healthcare. Neil Sebire, professor of Pathology at UCL and Chief Registration and Inspection Officer (CRIO) at GOSH, said: "This powerful partnership between GOSH, UCL and Microsoft is a potential game-changer for healthcare.


Why You Must Treat Artificial Intelligence (AI) As A Very Special Technology

#artificialintelligence

There are lots of technologies that attract our attention – and money – these days. We're obsessed with blockchain, cryptocurrency, IOT, big data analytics, cybersecurity3-D printing and drones. We're excited about virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality. We love talking about driverless cars, ships and planes. We can't wait for 5G and Wi-Fi domes that solve all of our network access problems; and while we're getting a little worried about social media and privacy, we're still addicted to our ever-more-powerful smartphones.

Robot co-workers? 7 cool technologies changing the way we work

#artificialintelligence

Technology is poised to change the workplace. Soon you may have a robot for a co-worker or a microchip embedded under your skin that's a work ID. Some innovations are already making an impact. Virtual reality, for example, is going beyond gaming to serve as a powerful workplace training tool. One of the biggest areas where VR training can be useful is safety, according to J. P. Gownder, vice president at research firm Forrester.

SAP recently posted a new report titled: Trend Report 2018 - Emerging Technology Trends. This report takes a look at new technology trends that will impact all businesses over the next few years. Here are a few major hightlights from the report. Two distinct but merging technologies are behindimmersive technologies: Virtual Reality (VR), com-puter-generated, digital environments that fully immerse users in a virtual world and AugmentedReality (AR), which overlays digital information onthe physical world and augmented reality operating environments. Companies are already experimenting in pilot proj-ects and the technology has the potential to becomethe next computing platform.


Most companies still don't understand big data and AI -- and their potential?

#artificialintelligence

For nearly every industry, from communications to energy, architecture to real estate, the power of big data to provide intelligent insight can't be overstated. The fine-grained detail and big picture are both visible at this level, both captured by careful analysis of huge datasets. But make no mistake: huge isn't an exaggeration. When a dataset reaches into billions of points of information, it simply exceeds human capacities. That's where cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning come in.

How VR could bring Glastonbury into your living room

BBC News

Technology may have brought the music industry to its knees 20 years ago, but these days pop stars and record labels are using computing power to find new audiences and take fresh creative decisions. The benefits and pitfalls of this new technology are being debated at The Great Escape music festival in Brighton, in a day-long conference. Here are some of the things we learned. Virtual reality could allow fans to experience Glastonbury from the comfort of their sofa, simply by plugging in a headset. In fact, Melody VR - a London-based tech start-up - launched earlier this month, offering concerts by stars like The Who, Royal Blood and Rag'N'Bone Man through VR sets like Oculus Go and Samsung's Gear VR.
