Latest artificial intelligence publications
Technology innovation continues to restructure industries and redefine what’s possible – but how is it reshaping the experiences we want from our interaction with organisations? The future medical industry will see machines diagnose us, while humans hold our hands. A reality, definitely and less scary than you might first think. Think of a super-smart computer – or Artificial Intelligence – that could instantly mine every piece of relevant medical research available on the planet relating to your symptoms to make a diagnosis and recommend treatment. Not just based on the intellect of your consultant, but that of every consultant and research scientist in the world! That would feel reassuring, right? But then having that human contact with your consultant, the empathy and support through your treatment would be a vital component. No human alone could offer this combination of insight and empathy. Who wouldn’t want this? This is the frontier of medicine and healthcare delivery, all enabled through this perceived ‘scary’ AI.
The latest research from Cisco says that global internet traffic will reach 4.8 zetabytes a year in 2022, or 150,700 gigabytes a second. Video will represent at least 80 per cent of the total internet traffic. That research was published before the current coronavirus pandemic, which may well have a dramatic change in the shape and per-type breakdown of global internet traffic as face-to-face meetings are being overwhelmingly replaced with video conference calls and live video streaming. For example, NAB, the biggest event of the year in media production and distribution, has recently announced it will switch to a virtual conference for the 2020 year, with live presentations and meetings taking place via video streamed over the web.
More than a fifth of Britons would trust artificial intelligence (AI) to better handle political negotiations – including Brexit – over human politicians, new research suggests. The survey of 2,000 people in the UK also found that nearly a third would follow financial advice given to them by AI.
The European Union has unveiled proposals to regulate artificial intelligence that call for strict rules and safeguards on risky applications of the rapidly developing technology.
The report is part of the bloc’s wider digital strategy aimed at maintaining its position as the global pacesetter on technological standards.
