Top 10 Applications of Machine Learning in Healthcare - FWS

#artificialintelligence

Healthcare is an important industry which offers value-based care to millions of people, while at the same time becoming top revenue earners for many countries. Today, the Healthcare industry in the US alone earns a revenue of $1.668 trillion. The US also spends more on healthcare per capita as compared to most other developed or developing nations. Quality, Value, and Outcome are three buzzwords that always accompany healthcare and promise a lot, and today, healthcare specialists and stakeholders around the globe are looking for innovative ways to deliver on this promise. Technology-enabled smart healthcare is no longer a flight of fancy, as Internet-connected medical devices are holding the health system as we know it together from falling apart under the population burden.

#artificialintelligence

New Delhi, September 10, 2020: As part of its ongoing efforts to promote skilling as a national priority, NASSCOM FutureSkills and Microsoft have joined hands to launch a nation-wide AI skilling initiative. The initiative aims to skill 1 million students in AI by 2021. The collaboration will provide Microsoft's AI, machine learning and data science expertise to students through easy to consume modules including live demos, hands on workshops and assignments. These introductory sessions on AI will be available for undergraduate students at no cost and will cover the basics of data science, machine learning models on Azure, and understanding of cognitive services to build intelligent solutions. The partnership with NASSCOM FutureSkills is an extension of Microsoft's global skilling initiative to help 25 million people worldwide acquire new digital skills, needed to thrive in a digital economy.


Microsoft unveils updates across Azure Cognitive Services and Azure Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

During its Ignite 2020 conference, which kicked off virtually this morning, Microsoft announced updates to Azure Cognitive Services and Azure Machine Learning aimed at streamlining business processes during the coronavirus pandemic. The company also launched two features in Azure Cognitive Search -- Private Endpoints and Managed Identities -- plus enhancements to Bot Framework Composer and the broader Azure Bot Service. "We're seeing AI touching every business across the planet, and so one of the key focuses we have with Azure Machine Learning is to provide our customers with the tools to really simplify the ability to create new models because we know they're going to need them in every area of their business," Microsoft corporate vice president Eric Boyd told VentureBeat in a phone interview. "This continues to be a key theme for us -- how we will really help our customers, enable more of their developers, and even more of their data analysts to build machine learn models and apply them in all aspects of their business." Private Endpoints in Cognitive Search, which is generally available as of today, allow a client on a virtual network to access data in an index over a private link.


Better outcomes with AI: Frost & Sullivan names Microsoft the leading AI platform for healthcare IT

#artificialintelligence

In early 2020, Frost & Sullivan recognized Microsoft as the "undisputed leader" in global Artificial Intelligence (AI) platforms for the Healthcare IT (HCIT) sector on the Frost Radar . In a field of more than 200 global industry participants, Frost & Sullivan independently plotted the top 20 companies across various parameters indicative of growth and innovation, available for consumption here. According to Frost & Sullivan, the global AI HCIT market is on a rapid growth trajectory, with sales of AI-enabled HCIT products expected to generate more than $34.83 billion globally by 2025. Government agencies will contribute almost 50.7 percent of the revenue (including public payers), followed by hospital providers (36.3 percent) and physician practices (13 percent). Clinical AI solutions will drive 40 percent of the market revenue, with financial AI solutions contributing the same, and the remaining 20 percent coming from sales of operational AI solutions. Globally, Microsoft earned the top spot because of its industry-leading effort to incorporate next-generation AI infrastructure to drive precision medicine workflows, aid population health analytics, propel evidence-based clinical research, and expedite drug and treatment discovery.


Microsoft And Shell Announce New Partnership To Use Artificial Intelligence And Tech To Reduce Carbon Emissions

#artificialintelligence

Tackling carbon emissions is one of the biggest challenges faced by the world today. For big business, this means making a strategic and managed move towards increasing the use of renewable energy sources, as well as creating efficiencies across all aspects of their operations. It's a difficult task to manage alone, even for an enterprise on the scale of tech giant Microsoft or energy titan Shell. But working together creates new possibilities that go further than what it is likely they could accomplish individually. Beyond meeting their own zero-carbon commitments, there's the opportunity to help other companies within their vast ecosystems of customers and suppliers to meet their environmental and safety goals, too.


SharePoint Syntex to automate content categorization and build a foundation for knowledge curation

ZDNet

Microsoft announced the general availability of Microsoft SharePoint Syntex as of Oc. 1, 2020. This is the first packaged product to come out of the code-name Project Cortex initiative first announced in November 2019. Project Cortex reflects Microsoft's ongoing investment in intelligent content services and graph APIs to proactively explore and categorize digital assets from Microsoft 365 and other connected sources. Teams need tools to help them collaborate and stay productive while remotely working. SharePoint Syntex will be available to M365 customers with E3 or E5 licenses for a small per-user uplift.

Microsoft exclusively licenses OpenAI's groundbreaking GPT-3 text generation model

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft's ongoing partnership with San Francisco-based artificial intelligence research company OpenAI now includes a new exclusive license on the AI firm's groundbreaking GPT-3 language model, an auto-generating text program that's emerged as the most sophisticated of its kind in the industry. The two companies have been entwined for years through OpenAI's use of the Azure cloud computing platform, with Azure being how OpenAI accesses the vast computing resources it needs to train many of its models. Last year, Microsoft made a major $1 billion investment to become OpenAI's exclusive cloud provider, a deal that now involves being the exclusive licensee for GPT-3. OpenAI released GPT-3, the third iteration of its ever-growing language model, in July, and the program and its prior iterations have helped create some of the most fascinating AI language experiments to date. It's also inspired vigorous debate around the ethics of powerful AI programs that may be used for more nefarious purposes, with OpenAI initially refusing to publish research about the model for fear it would be misused.
