Agility and Automation that AI can bring to security operations

In conversation with Mr. Amit Roy – EVP & Regional Head of EMEA, Paladion As global leaders in technology solutions, where do you see AI in GCC when compared to AI across the globe? The GCC stands in a position of great opportunity. They have the chance to take the lead in adoption of AI and show the rest of the world how to best do so. And from our position as cybersecurity providers, we see a critical need to leverage the [...]

AI to power UAE growth

Artificial intelligence is at the forefront of the UAE government’s strategic plans The UAE will benefit most from the ongoing transformative technology revolution in the Middle East, where artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to contribute $320 billion (Dh1.2 trillion), equivalent to 11 per cent of the regional GDP by 2030, a research reveals. The most significant relative gains in the region are expected in the UAE where AI is expected to contribute almost 14 per cent of GDP in 2030, which [...]

On the Road to AI, Don’t Ask “Are We There Yet?”

Businesses that put in the effort to create an artificially intelligent business may see amazing returns at first — but there are good reasons to expect those to diminish. It would be very, very helpful to know what the future holds for artificial intelligence in business. Unfortunately, it is also very, very hard to predict. With this topic, our extrapolation heuristics may not work well. We tend to extrapolate linearly, expecting the pace of past progress to continue unchanged. That is [...]

Not All Digital Threats Are Disruptions

What’s happening this week at the intersection of management and technology. Parsing digital competitive challenges: Thanks to Clayton Christensen, we throw the word “disruption” around pretty freely these days. But Strategy& consultant Alexander Kandybin reminds us that many of the competitive challenges that we call disruptions don’t actually fit Christensen’s definition of the term: “An innovation that is disruptive allows a whole new population of consumers at the bottom of a market access to a product or service that was [...]

Romantic and Rational Approaches to Artificial Intelligence

A gap already exists between companies’ ability to collect data and managers’ skills at putting it to use. Will AI increase the divide? The use of artificial intelligence in the criminal justice system offers a stark example of the contrast between knowing how to produce results and knowing how to consume them intelligently. Systems recommend bail and sentencing but offer little transparency about the basis for the recommendation, leaving the humans who digest the recommendations potentially under informed. What if we [...]

Welcome to the Coherence Economy

Technology has laid the groundwork for a major economic shift. Nearly 20 years ago, there was a major economic shift — from a services economy to an experience economy. Since then, the accelerating pace of technology, fueled by hyperspecialization, digitization, and the ability to programmatically control these new environments, has been quietly ushering in a new economy set to challenge every industry — the coherence economy. Creating Magic Through the Coherence of Technology Think of the evolution of travel. In the agrarian [...]

But Will the Algorithms Have Empathy?

How soon will it be before smart machines perform complex, multifaceted services such as looking out for our health? Every day, we hear about smart machines with new capabilities: computers that can outplay chess masters or are capable of processing natural language to answer increasingly complex questions; new cars that alert us when the driver in front of us hits the brakes, when we drift out of our designated lanes, or when a pedestrian suddenly steps off the curb. But [...]

Companies Brace for Decade of Disruption From AI

Now that many executives are finding measurable results from their Big Data initiatives, they are looking ahead and making decisions about investments in emerging capabilities such as artificial intelligence and machine learning.. Executives of the nation’s biggest corporations fear that major disruption is on the horizon. This is a central finding of the 2017 Big Data Executive Survey from NewVantage Partners, which tracks the views of senior corporate executives on disruptive capabilities, ranging from Big Data to artificial intelligence. According to [...]

Are AI Learning Scenarios Unpredictable Enough?

If AI algorithms are to respond effectively in real-world situations, developers need to consider humanity’s darker impulses.. A fender bender heard around the AI world happened last week in Las Vegas when a self-driving shuttle was involved in a minor collision during its first hour of service. It is ironic that this happened in Vegas, a city based on games. How would you score this match between humans and machines? Is it 1-0 in favor of the humans, a victory [...]

How Big Data Is Empowering AI and Machine Learning at Scale

Big Data is powerful on its own. So is artificial intelligence. What happens when the two are merged? Big data is moving to a new stage of maturity — one that promises even greater business impact and industry disruption over the course of the coming decade. As big data initiatives mature, organizations are now combining the agility of big data processes with the scale of artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to accelerate the delivery of business value. The Convergence of Big Data [...]
