Covid-19 has forced business leaders to accept that automation will arrive earlier than expected. It is therefore timely, albeit in less-than-positive circumstances, to look at which type of companies will, and will not, thrive in the future.
The future of work is no longer merely a concept, but a reality — Covid-19 has made sure of that. The pandemic has accelerated workplace innovation across sectors to the point of no return, with contemporary businesses now almost entirely reliant on new technologies simply to exist.
In this final part of Silicon UK’s look at automation, we consider what the future holds for all enterprises. What should your business’s automation roadmap look like?
In the March 2020 issue of Digitalisation World magazine, Charles Towers-Clark, along with other experts, shares thoughts about what Artificial Intelligence has to offer to businesses and whether companies are fully engaged in making the best use of AI in their practices.
The “Wild West” of artificial intelligence (AI) needs to be reined in, according to EU industry commissioner Thierry Breton. However, regulating AI generally, rather than regulating the technology’s uses specifically, may very well be putting the cart before the horse.
Innovation in AI and technological hardware has taken staggering leaps in the last decade, but last week (July 16), Elon Musk’s secretive Neuralink startup strayed into the literary arsenal of sci-fi greats like Arthur C. Clarke
We have moved one step closer towards human-level intelligence. Image recognition technology and tactile sensors are being joined together and are using each other to improve their abilities.
IoT security is not properly equipped to handle advanced threats. Traditional IT security does not work with IoT devices
Detecting cancer might be AI’s most altruistic and convoluted challenge yet. Standard screening methods such as radiological imaging can miss signs of cancer, or return a false negative (as it does in 20-30% of cases). The process of scanning images is particularly in need of improvement, as doctors must often visually search for signs of cancer which can leave only the largest, most advanced tumors to be detected. Hereditary testing is another detection method that determines genetic predisposition to cancer, but this does not provide much detail and cannot reveal if a person has cancer now.
