How Artificial Intelligence Is Helping Enhance Human Capabilities

In the past half decade, artificial intelligence and machine learning have made significant leaps into the mainstream and into our daily lives. According to research firm Markets and Markets, the artificial intelligence market is set to grow to $5.05 billion by 2020 thanks to the increased applicability of various AI technologies into everything from finance to healthcare to retail. Today, doctors can diagnose Sepsis with an AI algorithm, for instance, and researchers can track endangered species through AI-enhanced photo capture systems.

The objective: No more wasted nights in an overcrowded emergency room with a sick child for routine ails like stomach bugs and minor coughs.

Golan and his wife, Dr. Dania Rumbak, […]

Innovation That Matters: Inside America’s surging startup cities

America is on the cusp of a technological revolution that will impact every sector of the economy and every corner of the country. In the same way some cities rose and others faltered during the industrial era and the first technological revolution, this next wave of innovation and disruption has the potential to redraw America’s economic map as new cities emerge as leaders in the digital world. Question is, which of our nation’s urban areas are positioning themselves to thrive in this new era, and which ones are on the verge of being left behind? Not surprisingly, longstanding tech hubs like Boston and the San Francisco Bay Area remain the leaders when it comes to fostering innovation and entrepreneurship, and as of today, they’re the most well positioned to lead in the digital economy. However, they have mounting competition from some unlikely up-and-comers, according to the Innovation that Matters 2016 […]
