AI (Artificial Intelligence): What’s The Next Frontier For Healthcare?

What are some of the trends that look most interesting within healthcare AI? One of the key trends is the use of health AI to spur the transition of medicine from reactive to proactive care. Machine learning-based applications will preempt and prevent disease on a more personal level, rather than merely reacting to symptoms. Ultimately, patients will benefit from timely and personalized treatment to improve outcomes and potentially increase survival rates.

How Robotic Process Automation Will Change the Future of the Workplace

There still seems to be a great fear that robots will displace human workers.  We should not have to fear, as it’s becoming more and more prevalent that robots and automation will instead provide a valuable extension to global workers by helping them eliminate mundane tasks. Today and over the next decade, we will certainly see an increase in using RPA for human resource management, especially for the on-boarding and off-boarding of employees, benefits administration, payroll, etc. Primarily, we must acknowledge the flexibility that RPA provides.

The Five Components Of Autonomous Leadership

No leader should deploy intelligent and autonomous applications without a thorough understanding of how the system works, from the variables used for analysis to the key outcomes tracked for success. Without the right data and the proof needed to recommend and execute actions, the system is actionable. Leaders cannot, and will not, move to a model of intelligent applications without the trust and transparency provided by the education and monitoring piece. But when the five components of AI are integrated and made easily available to leaders, AI can begin to guide strategy in all types of organizations.

Everything a Data Scientist Should Know About Data Management

Data science training mainly focuses on machine/deep learning techniques. Data management knowledge is often treated as an afterthought. Data science students usually learn modeling skills with processed and cleaned data in text files stored on their laptop. To be a unicorn, you have to master every step of the data science process — all the way from storing your data, to putting your finished product in production. Here is a high-level overview to learn more about data management.

A Friendly Introduction to Data-Driven Marketing for Business Leaders

There is traditionally no way to test marketing attribution models before using them in a real business context, seeing as it’s not possible to compare the algorithm’s output to some source-of-truth-data. Marketing attribution is still an evolving discipline, and data scientists are exploring possible ways of testing these models for a possible look into the performance before applying them to real-time data and doing a sort of real-life testing by moving marketing budget around.

The Non-Technical AI Guide

This post gives an introduction to the field of Artificial Intelligence and a better understanding of how AI works and what it can really do. You will learn about the common misconception about AI and what Machine Learning and Data really is, and familiarise with the most common terms of the field: Data Science, Deep Learning, AI and Machine Learning. You can also learn where you can get data, how to approach data acquisition and that having a lot of data does not necessarily mean that you can do AI with it.

What is neuromorphic computing?

Neuromorphic computing is not new. It was first proposed in the 1980s. But recent developments in the artificial intelligence industry have renewed interest in neuromorphic computers. The growing popularity of deep learning and neural networks has spurred a race to develop AI hardware specialized for neural network computations. Among the handful of trends that have emerged in the past few years is neuromorphic computing, which has shown promise because of its similarities to biological and artificial neural networks.

Big Data And AI Could Make Traditional Developers…Extinct?

 AI and Big Data are actually transforming the roles of traditional developers. It’s no longer just about jamming lots of code and creating full-blown applications. The bottom line is that the development process must not be an assembly line; rather, it should be a true collaboration. People who understand data and analytics are the need of the hour. Part of this is about understanding statistics, like Bayesian inference, but also grasping the nuances of data. Those people that have these valuable skills will be the next generation developers.

Creating intelligent workspaces is the future of work

Small meeting spaces are fast becoming smart workspaces where high performance collaboration like problem solving and idea generation is taking place. Businesses are finding value in creating smaller, more agile spaces that enable people to meet when they need to, regardless of location. Creating intelligent workspaces like the huddle room is the future of work. Agile workspaces such as huddle rooms enable important calls and video conferences to take place as required, ensuring that remote workers have sufficient face time, contribute to team meetings and feel included.

Three Myths About Robotic Process Automation in Healthcare, Debunked

For nearly a decade, healthcare professionals have been introduced to “quick-fix” automation solutions that have failed to work cohesively with existing systems. As a result, these implementations have largely failed – causing distrust amongst employees about the value of new technologies. However, RPA is different in that it is quick to implement, seamlessly integrates with existing systems and delivers near-immediate value. Here, we debunk common myths about RPA in healthcare to explain how technology can free up time and resources spent on administrative tasks.

The Next Step Towards Conscious AI Should Be Awareness

Understanding a phenomenon is the first step toward engineering it, so if we have an explanation of consciousness we can hope to succeed in building the same functionality into our AIs. In any case, it is very unlikely that artificial intelligence with no ability to explain its reasoning with human concepts will be socially acceptable. Equip it with human characteristics such as consciousness would probably be the only way for us to trust it and solve the black box problem, that is to say artificial consciousness out of necessity.
