Board Rooms Strategies Redefined By Algorithms : AI For CXO Decision Making

For the past few years, Artificial Intelligence has initiated unlocking value gains through the automation and augmentation of routinized operational activity. But are we underestimating the potential of machine intelligence? Does it make sense to relegate a powerful technology to perform tactical tasks? Or can AI move further upstream and help corporate boards make more accurate strategic decisions? The possibility of AI to enable better decision-making has been heavily discounted thus far. However, with… more

The Rise Of Genetic Testing Companies And DNA Data Race

Introduction It is said that this is the best of times for direct to consumer (DTC) genetic testing companies, human disease genomics, and the launch of genomic data marketplaces. Due to advances in technology and the availability of cost-effective consumer genotyping kits, massive genomic data sets from human patients and controls are being created from across nations. As a result, it is not only the continued growth in the number of disease genes identified, but it will also advance a deepening of our… more

The Future Of Artificial Intelligence Tied To The Future Of Blockchain?

Introduction Since the beginning of modern times, each industrial revolution was driven by different automation. While factory machines and fossil fuels drove the previous industrial revolutions, the ongoing automation revolution is based on data-driven artificial intelligence (AI). Understanding its impact and what will be required to support the AI-driven automation revolution is a fundamental necessity. So, as we evaluate the impact and the support needed to harness this automation revolution, it… more

Artificial Intelligence for Good: Preserving Our Cultural Heritage

We are our distinct and unique cultures, histories and languages. In today’s ever-increasingly globalized world, we must act as guardians of the unique cultural heritage that forms the basis of our identities. New technologies are facilitating this arduous task. The architect of the future, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can lead the way in preserving our distinct cultural heritage for the next generations. Just over a year old, AI start-up IVOW has a mission to “bring the ancient art of storytelling into… more

The Dawn Of A Data Labor Force

Data is the foundation of artificial intelligence-driven automation. Our data is becoming a valuable commodity to automation initiatives across nations: its governments, industries, organizations, and academia (NGIOA). Since data and information drive the value of artificial intelligence initiatives, the better the sources of data, the better the automation initiatives and resulting intelligence outcomes.Introduction So, it is quite interesting that most of our machine- learning systems today are being… more

Want to Transcend The E-Myth And Scale Your Business? Try AI.

Less than six months after launching my company I found myself at a diner with a friend. Over coffee, I began telling him about my recent successes — and struggles — as an entrepreneur. He stopped me. “Have you read The E-Myth?” I shook my head. “Then cancel everything you’re doing today and get yourself a copy. It’ll transform how you run your business.” I listened to his advice and immediately read Michael Gerber’s seminal work, The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do… more

How to Survive the Upcoming AI Tsunami

Like it or not we are all going to get inundated by AI, Robotics and Automation opportunities. As organizations or individuals, we will have to decide how we are going to respond. Since we can no longer count on AI going back into another “AI Winter” because it is not going away. We will have to decide on AI as a trend and each AI encounter we will be facing. Our choices on AI will either make us win or lose in the short term and the long run. What are the responses to AI we can exercise? Ignore AI You… more

Crossing the Cognitive Chasm: The Journey (Prospectus)

eFeature #2 Prospectus Crossing the Cognitive Chasm: The Journey Release & distribution: TBAMembers' articles due: TBA eFeature exposure: 500,000 guaranteed Way back in 1993, when Hammer and Champy wrote "Reengineering the Corporation," the book launched the Business Process Reengineering (BPR) revolution. ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems were all the rage, with large companies paying millions to consultants to “convert” to ERP systems, tearing down silos and integrating company functions… more

The End Of Work: The Consequences Of An Economic Singularity

Introduction Today, we are no longer confined to what nature or natural intelligence must offer. From the steam engine to electricity and digital transformations to artificial intelligence, molecular manufacturing and bioengineering, each new transformative innovation has brought us a new (man-made) way of doing things in ways that nature did not provide for. As new ways of manufacturing and production are emerging, they are taking away an ever-increasing number of tasks and roles previously performed by… more

Preparing For Tomorrow's Workforce In A World Run By Machines

Our increasing fascination with the hyper-performance of machines, smart software and AI is casting a shadow over our elusive and ephemeral ‘human-only skills.’ As our working environments shift dramatically it’s time for a change in our performance metrics, too. My recommendation comes in the form of ‘Key Human Indicators,’ designed to protect and encourage human agency in our future workforces. Let me explain. The current dialogue around the future of work is dominated by digitisation, cognification,… more
