Summary: Based on a McKinsey study we reported that 47% of companies had at least one AI/ML implementation in place. Looking back at the data and the dominance of RPA as the most widely reported instance makes us think that the number is probably significantly lower.
We’ve all experienced the great data rush as companies push to use analytics to drive business decisions. After all, the proliferation of data and its intelligent analysis can change entire company trajectories. But to make the quintillions of data created each day truly useful, as well as all that has come before, it must be understandable to an artificial intelligence (AI) system.
Dealing with numbers is one thing, but human language is…Continue

Artificial intelligence has been fascinating to the human imagination since the term was first used by the first science fiction writers.
The roots of the concept of "artificial intelligence" must be sought deep in the ancient world, where folklore, legends and myths in almost every culture spoke of artificially created creatures endowed with supernatural intelligence, consciousness or other human qualities. The only factor uniting the myths of the whole world is that artificial…Continue

Summary: The world of healthcare may look like the most fertile field for AI/ML apps but in practice it’s fraught with barriers. These range from cultural differences, to the failure of developers to really understand the environment they are trying to enhance, to regulatory and logical Catch 22s that work against adoption. Part 3 of 3.
Summary: Despite hundreds of projects and thousands of data scientists devoted to bringing AI/ML to healthcare, adoption remains low and slow. A good portion of this problem is our own fault for failing to see the processes being disrupted through the eyes of the physician users. Here we lay out the healthcare opportunity landscape but for data scientists following classical disruption strategies, it may be more of a minefield. Part 2 of…Continue

Summary: If you want to understand the promise of AI/ML in healthcare you need to see it through the eyes of physicians, the ultimate users. Turns out these folks aren’t the rapid adopters you’d think they’d be and the problem is largely with the way data scientists have tried to implement. Part 1 of 3.
