How artificial intelligence changes healthcare jobs

Human interaction is the core of good healthcare. Because of this, the risk of job loss due to AI automation in healthcare is low when compared to many other industries. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that only about 36 percent of healthcare activities can be automated with current technologies. The potential for automation is even […]

How artificial intelligence changes manufacturing jobs

Artificial intelligence (AI) will certainly impact manufacturing jobs. Rather than making people obsolete, I believe that AI will make many manufacturing jobs more meaningful. The McKinsey Global Institute estimates that while 64% of manufacturing work has the potential to be automated, only about 5% of all occupations consist of activities that are fully automatable. This implies that, in […]

The jobs that AI creates

The current wave of artificial intelligence (AI) works by using computer models to simulate intelligent behavior. Machine-learning algorithms are good at learning new behaviors, but bad at identifying when those behaviors are harmful or don’t make sense.  Companies deploying AI will need a workforce trained to ensure that the technology remains both useful and safe. […]

Reality check on AI

It’s too early to worry about a sentient AI apocalypse. The reality is that we know very little about how the human brain works — which means we know even less about how to build a computer that works just like the human brain. For very specific tasks, AI tends to make rapid progress until it matches human-level […]

Artificial intelligence in travel and transportation: How to take care of the fleet, the business and the passenger

Moving people and cargo around the globe, safely and on time, is a logistical challenge that draws on vast amounts of data. This data is a powerful but under-leveraged resource that can be put to greater use with artificial intelligence (AI). Think more efficient fleets, better route and capacity planning, and smoother passenger bookings and […]

Artificial intelligence in government: How to be more efficient, effective and responsive

As artificial intelligence (AI) increasingly comes into the mainstream, what better place to apply it than in the public sector, where vast troves of data can be leveraged to make government work smarter for its citizens. From infrastructure projects like repairing highways, to public services like reviewing patent applications, to policy decisions about staff allocation, […]

Artificial intelligence in manufacturing: How to run longer, run better and keep relevant

Imagine if you could anticipate equipment service needs in advance, accurately, and spend time only servicing the equipment that needs it when it needs it. Imagine, too, if you could make smarter production design decisions that optimize the overall manufacturing process. You can, with data you already have, by leveraging it using artificial intelligence (AI). […]

Artificial intelligence in insurance: How to make insurance more personal, affordable and adaptable

When was the last time your insurance company realized you had a life change, like getting married or buying a house or having a baby, and designed a policy just for you? And presented it to you without being asked? Without encroaching on personal privacy, this is the vision of insurance in the future: personalized, […]

Artificial intelligence in banking: How to be more trustworthy, efficient and helpful

You know your bank, but how well does your bank know you? Banks want better relationships with their customers in order to provide more personalized and customized services. Artificial intelligence (AI) can help banks understand their customers in powerful new ways. Why AI? You may have heard the terms analytics, advanced analytics, machine learning and […]

Artificial intelligence in healthcare: How to cut waste, enhance care and improve lives

As the need for good and affordable healthcare mounts, using data to make better-informed healthcare decisions is essential. By deploying artificial intelligence (AI), healthcare organizations can leverage vast troves of data to better anticipate patient needs, staff for them, improve treatment decisions, and reduce health risks in select cohorts. Why AI? You may have heard […]
