IT - AI



"Once a company has automated its basic tasks it can move on to using more intelligent cognitive services to enable a greater degree of automation and further maximise return on investment.

There's no question, AI is set to revolutionise society as we know it. We'll see unprecedented developments in the public sector and medicine and we'll realise drastic improvements in the way we do business. Most businesses are now fully aware of the need to start embracing intelligent automation for competitive advantage and are looking long-term at how different forms of artificial intelligence (AI) will impact their market..."


Artificial Intelligence: Examples Of How To Start Successfully
The Enterprisers Project, February 6th, 2019


"CIOs have moved from talking about AI to trying to jumpstart projects. But what kind of projects should you start with? Let's look at real examples of what works...

It's amazing how quickly the conversations that I'm having with CIO colleagues and clients about artificial intelligence (AI) and/or machine learning (ML) have shifted in recent months. I've gone from hearing many say they're taking a 'wait-and-see' approach to many suddenly wanting to get a jumpstart on the promise of these technologies. There's a lot of excitement about how much value can be garnered from an AI/ML implementation: Increasingly CIOs and IT leaders are chomping at the bit to implement something to show what they can do..."




"As the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, and big data analytics continues to grow, it is becoming increasingly important for edge computing systems to process large data sets in a timely and efficient manner. The basic compute, storage and networking capabilities are all present today at the edge, but speeds and capacity will only continue to increase and advancements like NVMe (Non Volatile Memory Express) will offer significant performance advantages and boost AI adoption at the edge..."



"With global supply chains becoming increasingly complex, manufacturers are starting to turn to AI to help untangle the web. The results could have huge national security implications...

According to leading supply chain analyst Louis Columbus, the biggest challenge facing the high tech industry in 2019 will be securing their supply chains. The challenge is that, as supply chains grow more complex, manufacturers may not be able to answer the question with confidence as to who their suppliers really are..."

"A pragmatic, risk-based approach can help CISOs plan for an efficient, effective, and economically sound implementation of AI for cybersecurity.

Artificial intelligence (AI) could contribute up to $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030, according to PwC. That's the good news. Meanwhile, Forrester has warned that cybercriminals can weaponize and exploit AI to attack businesses. And we've all seen the worrisome headlines about how AI is going to take over our jobs. Toss in references to machine learning, artificial neural networks (ANN), and multilayer ANN (aka deep learning), and it's difficult to know what to think about AI and how CISOs can assess whether the emerging technology is right for their organizations..."
