AIOps: Hollywood Myth Versus Practical Reality

AIOps: Hollywood Myth Versus Practical Reality

When you say the words “artificial intelligence,” what comes to mind for many is some sort of super intelligent machine life-form we’ve all seen in sci-fi movies, a being that knows more than we do and can do more than we can. Complete awareness and interpretation of its environment, rapid learning and adaptation, and incomprehensibly fast cycling through the orient-observe-decide-act loop are implied AI characteristics in most films.

Has Bitcoin Finally Met Its Match?

Bitcoin has reigned as the undisputed king of cryptocurrencies since it was created a little over ten years ago.

Using Machine Learning To Predict Disease In Cattle Might Help Solve A Billion-Dollar Problem

Using Machine Learning To Predict Disease In Cattle Might Help Solve A Billion-Dollar Problem

Machine Learning – One of the challenges in scaling up meat production are issues of disease for the animals. Take bovine respiratory disease (BRD), for example. This contagious infection is responsible for nearly half of all feedlot deaths for cattle every year in North America. The industry’s costs for managing the disease come close to $1 billion annually. 

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Surgery

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Surgery

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.

Using Machine Learning To Reduce Carbon Emissions In The Trucking Industry

Machine learning – In 2018, freight trucks contributed 23% of the greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, and by sector, transportation contributes an overall 28% of those emissions.

“The Reasonable Robot” Looks At The Intersection Of Artificial Intelligence (AI) And Law

“The Reasonable Robot” Looks At The Intersection Of Artificial Intelligence (AI) And Law

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).

Digital Transformation And Cybersecurity During Covid-19

Digital Transformation – This is beyond working from home.

The proliferation in working from home has brought new security challenges to the forefront that include attacks on not just businesses, but also government records, celebrities and coronavirus vaccine development data. In the healthcare industry alone, cyberattacks have increased by 150% within the last few months.
