The pace of technological innovation has increased dramatically over the last century. Furthermore, over the last decade, advances in the information technology world have grown exponentially, especially in the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). These changes have a growing impact on our lives, affecting everything from entertainment to personal finances, to eLearning. Let’s look back …

Imagine you are in a job interview. As you answer the recruiter’s questions, an artificial intelligence (AI) system scans your face, scoring you for nervousness, empathy and dependability. It may sound like science fiction, but these systems are increasingly used, often without people’s knowledge or consent. Emotion recognition technology (ERT) is in fact a burgeoning …

Transformation in the digital space has completely reshaped shopping, online experiences, and even customer expectations in physical stores. The COVID-19 pandemic’s disruption has turned the industry upside down, bringing with it unparalleled technological innovations. It’s important to consider where these innovations are taking us next by identifying the technological trends that have guided us through …

Conversation Designing is quite an interesting profession. It has slowly emerged to become one of the best part-time professions to take up in 2021.But to build interest onto this topic, I would need to explain to you what a conversation designer is….So let’s start from the basics shall we? What is a Conversation? In 2021 …

ABB’s Azipod® propulsion will help Global Mercy™ enter less accessible harbors off the African coast, while reducing vibrations and noise – crucial to the comfort of up to 200 patients and medical personnel on board. With about 5 billion people lacking access to surgical care globally1, international charity Mercy Ships uses hospital vessels to provide …

Engineers at MIT and Harvard University have designed a novel face mask that can diagnose the wearer with Covid-19 within about 90 minutes. The masks are embedded with tiny, disposable sensors that can be fitted into other face masks and could also be adapted to detect other viruses. The sensors are based on freeze-dried cellular …

The Republic of the Marshall Islands is a country of around 50,000 people spread across more than 1,000 islands in a remote part of the Pacific Ocean. The country relies heavily on cross-border finance and trade, and the complexities of that system can make it difficult for citizens to get certain goods and financial services …

Scientists in Spain have used artificial intelligence to identify common patterns in road traffic accidents. They used machine learning and artificial neural networks to analyze hours of video footage and thousands of images of life in Madrid and Barcelona. The results suggest most accidents occur on city streets cluttered with features that distract drivers. AI …

Ultrathin, flexible computer circuits have been an engineering goal for years, but technical hurdles have prevented the degree of miniaturization necessary to achieve high performance. Now, researchers at Stanford University have invented a manufacturing technique that yields flexible, atomically thin transistors less than 100 nanometers in length – several times smaller than previously possible. The …

New documentation standards in machine learning can enable responsible technology. These risk management strategies highlight how organizations can be compliant while protecting their valuable intellectual property. The growing use of machine learning (ML), within a global drive toward digital acceleration, raises the question, “Who’s minding the store?” We’ve seen many examples of both the power …
