Dear Cognitive RoundUp Readers,
First of all, we are wishing you a wonderful New Year with lots of joy and success!
As in 2019 we continue our journey towards the era of Artificial Intelligence, our human qualities are becoming increasingly important. We must not forget, that AI is only there to augment our talents & skills, and it is down to us to push our technologies’ development in a direction that will serve us to our best advantage.
The first articles of 2019 already show what potentials AI holds for the new year and what new findings surfaced as we left 2018 behind us.
At our rapidly growing SwissCognitive community, we deeply believe in the incredible potentials of AI. And even though we are convinced that this new technology can enable us to make the best use of the data & knowledge we gathered throughout our history, we also know that we need to ensure that we don’t lose focus on what makes us truly human.
We are wishing you happy reading!
The SwissCognitive Team
What exactly can companies do with Artificial Intelligence and how can they leverage it into their businesses in 2019? In this article, several industry leaders in HR, Automotives, Healthcare, Education etc., provide their insights on implementations of Artificial Intelligence.
With the help of cognitive technologies, we might be closer than we thought to deciphering numerous Middle-Eastern cuneiform tablets written in Sumerian and Akkadian languages, all of which are several thousand years old.
Today’s cutting-edge deep learning using artificial neural networks are the current state-of-the-art, but there have been many milestones along the road which have made it possible. Here is a rundown of the most significant milestones.
Artificial IntelligenceI is likely to become increasingly integrated with technologies as they are released over time. Healthcare is no exception. Within this sector medical imaging is set to benefit the most from these advances.
Some fear that as AI improves, it will supplant workers, creating an ever-growing pool of unemployable humans. This concern, while understandable, is unfounded. In fact, AI will be the greatest job engine the world has ever seen.
"Artificial Intelligence has the potential to not just make it easier to solve a wide range of old problems but it can also help us make new scientific discoveries and address new problems we haven’t been able to tackle before”
