The economic crisis caused by Covid-19 forced organizations to grapple with an entirely new set of challenges. And while no business was — or is — immune, the burden fell disproportionately on startups and small businesses.
In the last decades, artificial intelligence has shown to be very good at achieving exceptional goals in several fields. Chess is one of them: in 1996, for the first time, the computer Deep Blue beat a human player, chess champion Garry Kasparov. A new piece of research shows now that the brain strategy for storing memories may lead to imperfect memories, but in turn, allows it to store more memories, and with less hassle than AI.
Slowing down climate change is an urgent matter. If we fail, our world will face a more extensive crisis than we experienced because of the global COVID-19 pandemic. When artificial intelligence (AI) technology helps solve a problem, problem-solving can be done quicker, and the solution is often one that would have taken longer for humans to discover. Could artificial intelligence power climate change strategy? Yes, and it’s already doing so.
Artificial Intelligence – Since the beginning of time, leadership has been predominantly exerted through physical strength — the stronger the individual physically, the higher up in the leadership ranks of the community they would be. In nature, animals follow suit. The physically strongest animal eventually becomes the leader of the pack.
My recent claim that fashion needs more imagination when it comes to using artificial intelligence has been unexpectedly answered by a project combining e-commerce data and artisanship. Not an obvious pairing, but the brainchild of passionate ‘dataphile’ Yoox Net-A-Porter Group Chairman and CEO, Federico Marchetti, and HRH The Prince of Wales, whose appreciation and support of artisanal craftsmanship (and dedication to safeguarding its future) is decades-long.
Recently, there was brief news about Microsoft Flight Simulator and a tower more than 200 stories tall – created by a typo. As funny as that was, it missed the larger picture. Google Earth started a trend that has continued, and the virtualization of the world has proceeded at a rapid pace. It is now to the point where real business benefit is being gained by such work, supporting the application of artificial intelligence (AI) to even more problems.
Artificial Intelligence – “We’ve witnessed ten years of change in a month” is a typical description of how the pandemic is accelerating the use of telemedicine. Before the virus, video appointments made up only 1% of the 350m consultations which Britain’s National Health Service handles each year. Companies like Docly, eConsult and AccuRx are changing that. The latter claims that 90% of primary care clinics in England are now using its video-calling system.
Researchers have used artificial intelligence to accurately predict loneliness in residents at a senior housing community in San Diego. Publishing in the American Journal of Psychiatry, the researchers were able to harness natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning to classify the sentiment and emotions of speech.
Artificial Intelligence – I was sent a copy of Ryan Abbott’s “The Reasonable Robot” by the publishers. It is an interesting book that discusses a few critical areas of law as they could interact with artificial intelligence (AI).
Artificial Intelligence – Changes to water masses which are stored on the continents can be detected with the help of satellites. The data sets on the Earth’s gravitational field which are required for this, stem from the GRACE and GRACE-FO satellite missions. As these data sets only include the typical large-scale mass anomalies, no
